Acquaintance rape is a forced sexual assault committed by an individual whom you know: someone you just met, dated a few times, are in a committed relationship with, or are related to. The force involved can be physical, or implied with threats. Acquaintance rape is a violation of body and trust, but above all it is an act of violence – and it is wrong.
What differentiates acquaintance rape from stranger rape is the relationship between the victim and the offender. The circumstances and impact of sexual assault change dramatically when victims know their attacker. A victim may trust their acquaintance and therefore let down their guard. It also has a great effect on how the victim feels and reacts to the attack. They may be less likely to come forward because of their relation to their attacker, or they may downplay what actually happened, believing that rape as such only involves strangers.
Also if you can communicate properly there won't be any such question of rape. Since, he is a known person you either co-operate with him if you are interested or make him understand that you don't like it. A healthy relationship will be maintained only if they both communicate properly. If there is no proper communication then the girl won't know what kind of guy he is and what he exactly wants from her.
Now a days people make relationships just by chatting in whatsapp or facebook which is nothing but a poor communication. How will you come to a conclusion about someone by just chatting with them?
So, poor communication won't develop healthy relationships which in turn result in acquaintance rapes
