Are post-sex text messages a possible defense for rape allegation?

So I met a girl online and after a half a year or so, I slept with her about a week and a half ago. She was 22 and I was 23. We live in a big city. I did not give her my real name or the school I was attending. She snuck me into her parents house through the back and we had sex with protection. It was 100% consensual, no doubt in my mind. She has shown no indication of crying rape even after I told her I did not want to do it again and that I was leaving the city (moving). I have a great deal of text messages stating that the sex was excellent and better then she expected and how she was not pressured into it at all and wanted to do it with me but is a little hurt that we wont be doing a friends with benefits situation. I am very paranoid about her crying rape because this is the first time I ever just slept with a girl with no relationship or anything. Do false rape allegations happen often? Are post-sex text messages stating it was great, there was no pressure to do it, she wants to remain friends, and asking me to come over one last time before I leave (I did not) enough evidence that that I wont be arrested in case she is crazy to cry false rape?

    False rape reports to police are not uncommon. You should hire an attorney, give him all the information, and show him the text messages. Do not talk with the police about this incident without having your attorney with you. If the texts can be proven to come from her, you should not be charged.

    They might be, if they tend to show that the accuser had in fact consented. However consent would not matter in a statutory rape case. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.

    I'm sorry but this sounds a little paranoid and crazy. There must be more to this story if you believe this woman will report you for raping her.

    This woman has not filed rape charges against you? A year and a half have passed by. You do not live in her city anymore? I would not pre-occupy yourself that she is going to yell "rape at this late date. Probably, she has another lover by now. keep a record of the texts in the very remote possibility that she does try and pull a rape case against you. you undoubtedly would be questioned, at which time you can present the text messages from her to clarify the relationship. False rape allegations are not very rare, at all. Of course, the only things guaranteed in life are death and taxes, so there is no guarantee she will not try to file rape charges against you, but I seriously doubt that will happen some 18 months after the fact.
