When cars were introduced to the masses, there were no seatbelts. There were no airbags. There was also a huge lack of drivers education and the responsibility was based solely on the parents to teach their child how to drive correctly. This was the same for the internet only a few short years ago. No one was there to tell me not to meet someone online. No one told me I could get murdered.
So when I am telling you every ounce of what I did was equivalent to driving drunk in the dark with no headlights and no seat belt it would be FAR too accurate. The problem with this is it makes me a hypocrite. How can I tell people to be careful when I myself was not? Well, looking back when I met my husband and knowing I could have died made me put on some airbags, require a licence, and certainly know how to change my own tire if I get stranded.
I took the public transit system by myself to meet him
Got into his vehicle, and let him drive me where ever he wanted.
It would have been very easy for him to rape,kill, and dispose of my body somewhere without anyone knowing what the hell happened to me.
Fortunately, I was one of the very lucky people to not end up in a head on collision. I hope for other people to learn from my mistakes, call me a hypocrite, I don’t care, so long as you PLEASE don’t ever do what I did.
Instead of killing me he took me to a local shop with kitties in it, and I never left his side after that. How could I, really?
I mean, kitties.
