Work through the rape with a therapist and don't get in a relationship until you're truly ready. Some people aren't meant to be married.
I already have a session scheduled with a therapist next week. I realize I really do need it. I feel like intimate relationships with men are a threat to my well being right now... and that's not really how I'd want to continue living.
I am also seriously considering staying completely away from relationships for a year... Honestly, it feels like a relief.
