So, hello my name is Goldensun and I am new here. The reason why I have joined is because I believe that I have been either sexually assaulted or harassed. A while back ago I knew someone and we used to hang out together as friends.
There have been many times where he used to flirt with me in a romantic flirting kind of way. There was one day where we were sitting in a restaraunt and all he could talk about was his ex-girlfriends and when we got up to leave he handed me something and swiped his hand on my breast. To me, this felt like him groping me because it almost felt as if his hand were closed. Now is this considered an accident, or did he actually grope me? I also had another attack by the same guy in my other private part. (I don't want to be too graphic because I don't know what the rules and regulations are here.)
Ever since those two attacks on me, I have been able to relive the memories over and over again and it won't stop.
I have weird sensations and pains in my breast area and in my other private parts, where I was attacked, a long time ago.
These sensations and feelings have been going on now for a period of four and 1/2 years. It's an awful feeling and I don't know if this is considered PTSD as well? When the first incident happened, I believe it was not an accident and as well as the second time around. You just don't go around groping and touching other people's private parts as an accident, people don't normally do this. Or am I wrong? Any advice would be much abliged and appreciated! Thank you.

Have you experienced any other sexual attack from the opposite sex against your will? If that's what happened then it can be considered as sexual assault and you can ask your lawyer to file a certain case for that. Harassment is commonly understood as offensive behavior for the purpose if threatening or disturbing. Either way, you can still take any legal actions to protect your self. If you're still bothered and feeling traumatized about the incidents then it might be best to consult a counselor as well so that you would know if you are suffering from a PTSD. That way, you'll be given proper treatment and advice.

You have to stop talking in ambiguity did he do something or not!  Take a stance and defend it do not look for someone to justify your uncertainty!

When I was in grade 4 (elementary) a boy, after school waited for me outside & kicked me in the vagina really hard.  I did not know who he was or what his name was.  I never told anyone at home or friends or at school.

In that same grade, I had a teacher (male) for homeroom who either disliked me immensely or had some sort of attraction to me.  Either way, at least once a week he made me stay after class alone & only with him & he made me listen to his music.

In one of my first jobs (summer-contract) I had many male bosses.  One of them asked me to follow him into an area where there were no other employees around and he tried to touch me & hug me.  I just walked away & asked him what was wrong with him?  We continued working together.

I once worked for a supervisor (woman) for many years and did a really fine job.  She had praised me in writing on quarterly appraisals.  One day she randomly called me into a closed door meeting with her and told me that I should not be using my hands to speak & that she found it offensive.

Lets give a big cheer for people & the things they do & say!
