    The last one was in a relationship

    that he said wasn't going anywhere, then he chose me, then he decided he wasn't happy with me and wanted her back. Yeah, that is a pretty bad feeling, and I won't stand for being treated like that ever again.

    Why I Don't Want A Relationship

    I don't want to be "played" or hurt in any way like that. I don't trust anyone, so it prevents me from dating and other stuff.The most I have is sex with someone & then they have sex with others, so it isn't like I'm special.Soo, yeah.
