How do I tell my new boyfriend that Ive been raped and sexually assulted before?
Honestly I’m not sure. My boyfriend helped me realize I was raped so he’s kinda been dealing with it with me since the beginning. But I’d recommend just sitting him down and letting him know you have something important to tell him. If you have a tough time verbalizing it though, you can do what I did when I told my parents. I printed out a short article about good reaction phrases and ways to support a loved one who had been sexually assaulted and just gave it to them. Let them read it over and ask me any questions they had. I hope this helps a little, best of luck hun🍀 I hope he’s understanding and supportive of you 💚
