    And He Taught Me Well

    I am not a manipulative person whatsoever, I don't believe in emotional head games or tweaking a situation for a gain.  For the most part I am very open and honest when it comes to handling situations.  But there is one time I did use manipulation in full force.And it was an...

    It Was Horrible

    The girl I lost my virginity to and the girl I was seeing right after I emerged from a coma. They both manipulated my every thought. Not at the same time because that was 2 years apart. I guess I let them into my mind way too much.

    Gullible

    I would never have labeled myself as gullible, but yet I was manipulated and played by a guy who I thought cared about me. Isn't hindsight a painful thing? Loking back, I should've seen how he used me and spoke about me to his friends. But I convinced myself all guys were like...
