Women are habituated to worry and assessing the hazards of every event they encounter on a regular basis.
Women are always conscious of their surroundings and scared of what can occur, if they are strolling along a quiet street or returning to their car in a parking lot late at night.
While out walking in New York, one woman became aware of three males strolling behind her.
They continued to follow her as she ran home, and terror gripped her as she realized how silent her surroundings were.
She saw a man and concluded that if she didn’t attempt to beg for aid, it could be her only chance to obtain some safety.
The woman approached the stranger, hugged him tightly, and said, “please act like you know me, three guys have been following me for a while”.
Dane Weeks was glancing down at his phone and was taken aback by her behavior. She then took his hand tightly and led him three streets to the woman’s house, where she informed him she needed to get back to her kid.
He also discovered that the woman had gone inside a shop to attempt to distract the guys, however when she came out, she discovered they were waiting outside a restaurant.
Dane rushed to Twitter after the encounter to praise the woman for opening his eyes to what women and girls face on a daily basis.
He apologized to her for making her feel that way, writing on Twitter, “She said, you’re feeling like this, now imagine what every girl and woman feels like.
He also thanked her for introducing him to the world of ladies.
The woman informed the guy that the men had followed her off the train after she had arrived home late from work.
Please accept being her hero that night; she truly believed her son would have been motherless and her mom would have been daughterless, she told Dane.
Dane’s tweet received almost 370,000 reactions.
I'm walking to the train a few minutes ago and a woman walked right up to me and gave me a tight hug and whispered quickly, "please act like you know me 3 guys are following me for a while" I played along then walked her 3 blocks home. What an experience for the both of us.— 👑 Mr. Weeks 👑 (@WonderKing82) February 8, 2020
He had no idea his post would affect so many individuals; he just intended to let this feeling out and share it on his account, he continued.
It’s unfortunate that women and girls have to live in such terror since the guys have created a poisonous atmosphere. He adaded he’ll do better.
As women, we can all identify with this sense of powerlessness when a male crosses our way with terrible motives. It’s unfortunate that she had to rely on a stranger to protect her own wellbeing.
