Many young girls receive gifts from big men, not knowing that something bad might happen to them, but what my friend Sharon told me showed the contrary.
She said, “Recently, I met an old man of my father’s age. He started showing some interest of helping me in each and everything that I need.
At first, I thought that what he had been telling me is good, but what I saw was really dangerous to me but I just thank God because He paved me a way for moving out of that shit.
This man started by giving me a lot of gifts whenever I could find him; he proposed to me to go to his place that he had something he wanted to tell me.
When I reached at his place, he started narrating how he has helped a lot of children in terms of education and other necessities that they needed.
Everything he talked about sounded just like the life I was leading and I started wondering whether this guy knew everything about me.
As we were going on with our story, he told me how he wanted to give me the same support.
I could not refuse his offer because I thought that I had got a Good Samaritan since he was an old man.
He started paying my tuition, and he used to give me lifts to school. But what discouraged me was the day he called me in the evening at his place.
When I reached there he started demanding for everything he gave me. He told me to pay back sexually. Guess what happened when I refused!
He closed the door and started to remove his clothes one by one and after he came to me. He removed my clothes leaving me only in underwear.
As he tried to force himself onto me, I looked behind and saw an unclosed door.
I guess in his haste, he thought that he had closed all exits. In a last desperate effort, I used all my might and somehow overpowered him. I run out wearing only underwear. He did not try to run after me.”
From her story all I got is that she is not completely wrong in saying that we should stay away from sugar daddies, young girls should be extra watchful! And the boys are not totally safe either. There are sugar mummies too.
Girls, before you finally give all your trust to someone, make a back ground check.
He might promise you heaven on earth but maybe you need to stick to that who can give you only their heart for starters. You can build the rest together.
