Date Rape Isn't Just A Drug

STSM is honored to work with many compassionate and committed volunteers. One of our awesome advocates anonymously shares why she volunteers with STSM.

We flirted in high school, but didn’t really keep in touch through college. I ran into him one day and he asked me out for dinner. We had pizza, laughed over a few beers and all those flirtatious feelings came back. The check came and I didn’t want the night to end. He was just as charming as ever and he was walking me to my door. I’d known him for years and so I didn’t feel threatened, and invited him into my home.
