Dear Girl Who Falsely Claims I Raped Her,

First off, I'm not writing this letter because I'm angry with you. I'm not writing this in spite of the "#BelieveSurvivors" hashtag that's been floating around social media. This is not an attempt to lessen their cause or bring negativity to anyone. I'm not writing this letter for any reason other than I think it's just a story that hasn't often been told. I don't believe this is story that happens often, but I would like everyone to realize that this is a situation that can happen however rare it might be.

I don't ever expect to understand why you've said the things you've said. I have my guesses and I guess I'm going to have to live with those as far as closure goes. I think one of the ways you deal with heart break is to hate the person. I remember you hated the boy you dated before me and used to get angry with me when I would say his name. I didn't know him well but he seemed nice enough. You only broke up with him because you wanted to date me. We were young. No relationship was really serious at that age. The point here his, as far as I'm aware, that boy did you no wrong but yet you hated him. Next comes me. Our break up really wasn't that bad. I took it worse than you did and I think started to really annoy you because I wasn't moving on and I watched slowly as that annoyance turned to hate. I know you hated me. I don't think anyone would dispute that. So that's two. Now after me, I obviously wasn't part of your life so forgive me if I'm off on the details but we had enough mutual friends that I have a rough idea. Since me you've dated at least two other guys that I'm aware of. Broken up with them and went straight to hating them. Now I have no idea what these boys did to you but I have enough mutual friends with at least one of them to know he's a nice enough kid. The point here is that you have a history of hating your exes for minimal to no reason. I'm not sure if this even has anything to do with it but
