September 2013: Unacceptable

What to do when someone preys on a newcomer? Home group to the rescue

My home group meets every Sunday morning in a little coastal town in Washington State. A couple of years ago, a young lady who had just started attending found herself in an uncomfortable position. A man in his early to mid-20s, who was fond of bragging about what a “ladies man” he was, followed her out after the meeting and offered her a ride home. The conversation then turned into a sexually suggestive bid from him for more contact with her.

The next week when she came back to our meeting, he was right behind her. During the meeting, he was all over her like a lovesick puppy. It seemed quite obvious to several of us that she was not happy about it. Her feelings were confirmed when one of the women checked in with her after some gentle, one-to-one general conversation. There are 17 other meetings in our town, and she said he’d been following her around to whichever one she tried. He just would not leave her alone.
