THE VERY BEST THAT WE CAN: A SERIES
Understanding what your significant other has gone through and is feeling creates a safer environment, which in turn creates trust and trust can create healing and hope. The following quotes were taken from anonymous responses to the question "How has being sexually assaulted affected your romantic interactions with others in regards to casual dating, current, or past relationships in anyway emotionally, physically, or otherwise?"
I decided to create this project to try and better understand the different ways being a survivor of sexual assault impacts romantic relationships after reading a comment my friend wrote online about being in a relationship as a survivor of sexual assault. Thank you to my models, the beautiful couple Karina Segura and Ryan Gale, and thank you to all of you who submitted your anonymous experiences, emotions, and opinions.
