Getting to know the psychology of men

The first thing men look for in a potential victim is her hairstyle. They're most likely to go after a woman with long hair or a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. Thus women with short hair are not common targets. That does not mean you go and get yourself a short haircut.

The second thing that men look for is outfit or clothing. They will look for a woman who's clothing can be removed easily and quickly.

The third thing that men look out for is a woman who is not focused or who is busy talking on the cell-phone or busy searching her purse so that they can grab her off guard.

The fourth thing that men look for is a woman who is scared and weak and who will not give them too much of a fight or create trouble. Therefore no matter how much scared you are do not show it on your face and give them a tough fight. Start causing trouble, and believe me he's out of there.

Self Protection Techniques

  • If someone is following behind you on a street or at any other place or you think that a man is dangerous and can do you harm, look him in the eyes and try to talk something, like what time is it, or make general small talk, just to kind of letting him know that you have seen him. You must be wondering how this will protect you. Well what will be going on at the back of the mind of the attacker is "Now she has seen my face and will be able to identify me in a lineup, lets get out of here". Thus you lose appeal as a target.
  • If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Just warn them in as serious tone as you can get to stay the hell away from you or they will face dire consequences. This will definitely scare the attacker away as they'd leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. As all you have to do is grab all the confidence and courage you have got and fight back.
  • Also carry pepper spray or chilly powder with you. This is a handy weapon since you can really make the attacker blind by spraying chilly powder or pepper spray in his eyes.
  • If someone grabs your wrist, then don't panic but use this technique. Pull your wrist back so your hand is in waving position (palm facing forward) and twist it toward yourself and pull your arm away. It is hard to hold onto wrist bones that are moving in that way. The attacker will stumble toward you and you will stumble back, so you can use that momentum to bring the same out and backhand the attacker with your knuckles in the forehead, nose or teeth. And after the initial hit, always go for the groin.
  • If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. He will definitely let go of you coz this hurts like hell. And after the initial hit, always go for the groin.
