What many people don’t know, and especially not new, inexperienced bar or club visitors, date rape drugs usually have no smell or taste, and they are extremely difficult to spot.
An anonymous Tumblr user decided to come forward with a story about the horrific time a man slipped ‘something’ into their drink in a gay bar many years ago, and he managed to drag them outside and into his car.

Also, you should always remember that there are free hotlines that you can call 24 hours a day to get help if you’ve been sexually assaulted or if you need any advice on how to leave a relationship in which you don’t feel secure.
