Second.. a lot of it was her own doing. First flashing.. that was dumb, but ok she was young. Then when the freaky guy showed up.. she should have told her family, and gotten the cops to track the guy. If her boobs were seen by everyone already, she could tell her family about it right? She also slept with another girl's BF, knowing that he had a gf. Why would she do that? Those were her actions.

Her last mistake? Why did she keep all of her old friends from facebook? She wanted to move on didn't she? What's the point of moving to a new city if you're keeping your old friends on facebook?

At the end of the day, I felt a lot of things could've been done differently. A lot of people could have helped her, including herself.

I observed those same things. Young girls can be pretty naive though. Sleeeping with the guy? She had a need to be wanted. Stalker? He threatened her. Keeping her FB contacts? Curiousity. She had seperated parents too.
But doesn't it seem the ones who are bullied seem to bottle it up the most? She was a recluse, had anxiety which forced her to stay indoors. She probably couldn't tell a person if she wanted to.
In any case I still sympathize. She may have created some circumstances, but she did try to escape them, and she didn't asked to be hated for simply flashing her boobs.
