    It makes me feel so low

    and unappreciated. My ex girlfriend just broke up with me yesterday and it was the second time we broke up. She broke up with me both times. I am 17 and she is 15, we were together for over a year and I was so happy. The first time she broke up with me was because she said we...

    Or feeling like I'm being used.

    I'm not here for your own entertainment. I'm a genuine person who will treat you with kindness and respect until you no longer deserve it. I deserve that in return. I like to connect with others and get to know them. Don't tell me things you think I want to hear just to keep me...

    The same thing has been festering in my mind

    for awhile now. I'm sick of talking to others about it because I think I'm nagging them with it now but I still need to get so much off my chest. I have a hard time even explaining it all now... I just wish you understand how much pain I'm in when you do things like that. You...

    I'm 21 and last week I met this 18 year old

    girl on Tinder. We had a match so we started chatting. Me being the nice guy that I am, I asked her out for drinks and she said yes. I was pretty happy that she accepted. Before I started using Tinder, I couldn't even really get a girl to spend time with me, let alone invite her...

    Don't talk to be because you're "bored".

    I'm not here to entertain you. And don't come to me only when you need a favour. I don't like being used

    I have met a boy through a group.

    At first it was obvious that we liked each other. I have never been liked by a bot so openly before. And well- I liked it. So we exchanged numbers and started texting. Over time I have noticed that he is rather persistent in terms of hanging out. Once he even asked me a rather...

    why my mind's constantly observing the whole 4 dimensions of life around me m, looking for that jagged thorn that can snag the fabric of life. Not a cynic. More a realist. Used to react physically to altercations, enhancing my "policeman's" physical presence which only the...

    A guy I recently met decided we should hangout,

    he seemed really cool and so I agreed, considering he only lives right down the road, and I had nothing else to do. We are actually having a lot of fun, playing Destiny and then watching hilarious not-so-good movies on Netflix. One thing leads to another (as they always do it...

    I told him to leave me alone

    and finally I think this time he gets that - He only had two options : make me his gf or leave me alone. He didn't want either and had been selfish , leading me on so he could have sex with me. And how shameless of him for contacting me again even after I made it clear by...

    Don't Use Me...a Warning

    Don't use me for your ego or sexual boost and then run away. It is the height of rudeness. If you betray my goodness, expect to be slapped brutally in the face (or in EP's case, get blocked). Do not see how far you can push me, because I'll slam you into a spirtual cell and you...

    If I find out if anyone within my circle is using me, lowing to me or doing anything to betray my trust. YOU WILL IMMEDIATELY BE DELETED FROM MY CIRCLE! I will NOT tolerate it! I'm a real woman and I deserve to be treated like one!

    someone when you are upset? You can't just talk to that person? I understand if it's hard for you to carry on a conversation but how do you think the other person feels? Not so good because little do you know you are using them. That's really frustrating and saddening. For all...

    I hate it when you are always there

    for everyone who needs it, and yet as soon as you need help yourself people just shrug it off as nothing. I never ask for much from people, yet, as soon as I ask for help, people turn away.
