Used by my boyfriend, Anonymous (16)

I had been dating him for almost 4 months. I thought we were in love. We had been having sex for two of those months because I trusted him and I thought he loved me back. The day before he broke up with me we had sex, unprotected sex because I had started birth control. If I had know that he didn’t love me I would have never given myself to him because I would only have sex with someone if we truly had mutual trust and if were in love. Literally the next day he broke up with me. I felt so used and I had a really hard time falling asleep for days. I couldn’t focus in my classes and thank god my sport season had started because that was a great way to distract myself from thinking about how used I felt. He has no idea about how I feel and I’ve only had the confidence to tell two people. I don’t know what to do about this because now I have really bad trust issues and I feel like my relationships will never be the same. It’s now been 5 months since he broke up with me and I still think about it all the time.

I had dated a boy for two years from high school until he followed me to college, and then cheated on me. I felt like all he cared about was sex because of this. But on top of that, I felt like I had given him a part of me through our relationship that is no longer with me until this day. It has been 8 months since we broke up and I still think about him every single day. I think what hurts the most is that when you're dating someone you love them so much that even things that shouldn't be okay, you let slide. You instill so much trust in them, that you believe so hard that…
