If you've been raped before, how long would it take before you told the person you are dating about it?

I'm curious how long it would take women to tell whomever they are dating, sleeping with, or going to sleep with about it.

You can't put a time frame on it, it's whenever I'm comfortable enough with them.

I'd never tell them, they don't need to know.

My husband and I were friends before we started dating so he knew before we got together. Other guys I usually told about a month or so in I guess. Maybe a few weeks if something came up about sex that made me uncomfortable. I've never not told any guy I've been with.

Whenever you feel safe and ready. You don't owe anyone that information, but you don't have to keep it a secret. Let it come when you're ready.

I don't think there could be a set time and it's not about just being comfortable with your partner either because I was attacked when I was 14yrs old but only just recently talked about it with my Hubby who I've been with over 22 yrs. I'm more then comfortable with him but it wasn't a memory I wanted on the surface so I never told anyone about it at all. Now it's different for me and I've shared the story with others.

If I wanted to tell them, I would whenever. I personally have only told a few people about mine, and have not told the guy I'm currently dating. We've been together about 2 months.

I didn't tell my husband about my experience until this past year. We've been together for 5 years. It's a horrible thing to discuss when you want to let it go, but it sure helped to explain to him a lot of the reasons I am the way that I am.

Well, I ended up telling my new guy about it right away, because I have only just been able to admit to myself that it was rape. I wanted to be clear that 'No, stop it' does not mean 'Maybe' or 'If I orgasm, keep going'.
