What if I dated the person who raped me? Will anyone believe me?

Yes, we will absolutely believe you.

All non-consensual, forced sexual acts are rape; it does not matter if you gave consent to a prior sexual encounter. If you do not give consent this time, it is rape. Two out of three sexual assaults are committed by someone known to the victim. These include husbands, boyfriends, friends or other acquaintances. Only 31% of rapes are committed by a stranger.
