She said it herself: She didn’t get to know him well enough or research him enough. She’s not stupid, and perhaps she didn’t know any better because it never happened to her before. Now it has. It’s pretty common: People lie to get what they want, and women lie to get sex too, but I’ll bet if the roles were reversed no one would suggest the guy could bring *her* up on rape charges.
It wasn’t rape. She consented and got taken a bit. It was a life lesson learned. She’s smarter now and she’s demonstrated that. I love happy endings!
