Women share all the things they do to stay safe

"This is for anyone who thinks women are being a little dramatic when we say we have to go to full extremes to basically be left alone." Women share all the things they do to stay safe ...

    I had a pizza delivery guy repeatedly offer to come upstairs with me and I felt very vulnerable. (Papa johns on barking) When I complained they told me I had told him I was home alone, so it was my fault and that I invited him I'm 🥴

    Point on!! The problem is attitudes and opinions of women that haven't changed from days gone by. Women have evolved to these modern times. Men are oblivious and still carry these archaic and prehistoric principals. Hmmmm!!!

    Trying to explain to men why I’m not comfortable jogging at night or going places alone… only to have them say I’m being too paranoid or I’m worried about nothing. 🤦‍♀️

    One time, 2 men. I started sobbing really hard just thinking they wanted to hurt me. They left me alone.

    This is why I live in the country and I live in the states where we carry guns when my daughter turns 21 she’s getting a pistol from dad which is bs because it used to be 18! It’s like they don’t want young girls to be protected scary what a world fun of anti gunners coming for guns are the first ones to call cops with guns to protect them I’m sorry I would rather not wait that long and actually live! God bless America happy birthday!!

    Yes, ladies, there are some extremely vile human beings out there. They may be male, they may be female, they may be young or old, attractive or unattractive. They come in all sizes, shapes, and creeds and they will do whatever they want to do. They are called sociopaths because they have no conscience and no empathy for other living beings. Always be aware of your surroundings and act responsibly. It is not that the world is any more unsafe than it was 200 years ago, it is that we have the internet now to know that it occurs. Please be careful.

    It's sad men are not taught to respect more.

    It's TRUE, about 2 months ago this guy started coming in every day, one day he made his gas purchase and came back in to ask for my number, I told him I was 6 months pregnant thinking this would detur him, which was the truth. But he didnt care and asked if I was still with my babys father. I said yes, we are engaged. Which we are. He says okay, leaves, comes back in 2 days later talks to my coworker and asks her how she feels about him being my future husband. Me being uncomfortable i give her a look, she sees this and immediately mentions that I'm pregnant and engaged cuz she knows my fiance. He ignores this, comes back and slips his number on a receipt with a note that says "lets be friends :)" I never text him so he comes back in a few days later asking me why I havent, for several days he would come in and try to convince me to go on a date with him. Eventually I left this job because I felt extremely uncomfortable working there and started working for my brothers company instead.

    Pretending to be on the phone with my mother at a rest stop saying I was an hour away because two men were following me, pulling into a police station because I was being followed home, asked my guy friends to pretend they were my boyfriend, pretended I had a knife on me, lied and said my father was picking me up ……. I have countless stories

    True! I had a drugged out homeless guy follow me just talking about random stuff that didn’t make sense at all. He was trying to always touch me somehow even if it was his clothes brushing up against me. I’m a heavily pregnant woman who was out just getting some food and walking back to my car. There was a family walking in front of me and he asked if I was with them. I said yes and kept following them even though they were going in the wrong direction my car was in. The mom in that group looked back at me and I tried to give her a “help me” look. She then turned around and started walking next to me and started asking me things about my pregnancy. He finally left when she came up next to me. I apologized to them if it seemed weird I was following them and explained to them that I was acting like they were my family to get this man to leave. They offered to take me to my car but I told them I would be fine. I IMMEDIATELY called my husband in case the guy was watching and waited until I was alone. Got to my car safe and back home. Thank you random family and lady that helped me!

    In a parking lot sitting in my car after grocery shopping getting ready to pull out when a man approached my window and knocked on it, I rolled it down only a crack and asked what he wanted he told me he was selling perfume and asked if I wanted a sample, I told him no and rolled my window back up. He didn’t go away and kept knocking on the window more, I rolled it down slightly and asked him to go away. He then insisted I come with him and sample the perfume he had. At this point I’m frightened and told him I was going to call the cops if he didn’t go away. He then slammed his hand on my window and then tried opening my door. Thankfully I always keep my doors locked when I’m in my car. He kept pulling on the handle and yelling until I finally just laid on my car horn to attract attention to what was happening in hopes it would scare him away. It worked, As soon as I did so he ran away and jumped into a van parked near my car. If my door hadn’t been locked I feel as though that man would have definitely tried abducting me. Ever since then I always have a taser, pepper spray, and a switch blade in my car at all times.

    I was pretty young. Probably right around 10 or so. A neighbor down the street would constantly try to invite me into his house for a lemonade while I was outside riding my bike.... But he didn't ever bother my brother or his friends. Same guy got up close behind me while I was at the gas station with my mom and asked if we were sisters and invited us both to his house for some "fun" later. At 19 I went to the gas station to fill my tank. It was dark outside and I was alone in the car but on my way to see my fiance at the time. Guy pulls up to the pump behind me and asks if I need help. Nope, I'm good. He asks where I'm headed so late. To see my fiance. He asks where he is currently and why he wasn't with me. Saying he would pay for my gas and talk to me since clearly my fiance didn't know how to treat his girl and stranger could treat me better. Despite paying at the pump I went inside to wait for the guy to get bored and leave. A couple years later I was walking home from work (Tiny town. Everyone knows everyone) but the carnival was in town. I noticed some guy behind me walking. I pick up my pace. He matches. I start to run and I hear him running behind me. Luckily I was right in front of my friends house so I call him while standing in the street light to let me in. (Mind you it's 11:30 pm). When I got in front of my friends house in the light the guy had disappeared somewhere down the street. I've been harassed in a bar I was a regular at. Luckily the bouncers and bar tenders knew me and kept an eye out for me. They threw out several people for getting handsy. I've let random girls hug me and act like they were life long friends because they felt unsafe around random men that would not leave them alone. (I played along and brought them over to the bouncer to point out who was being an issue) I've had strange men attempt to take my drunk friends home with them and tried to intimidate me into allowing it. (I was almost always DD so I made sure I was sober that way I, myself, ensured everyone got home safe.)
