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.
