I'm 18 and actually until now I never felt this way I was always positive and liked myself but I never felt the need to have a boyfriend. Until this guy came in my life. He knew me somehow and he made me dream so much and hope so much. But now I'm not understanding his behavior I mean he doesn't want to be with me but he even wants to be out of my life. I'm through with him but I think this affected my self esteem so bad and I feel like I'll never be able to be in a relationship again :( I have been feeling awful for so long because I'm really scared I will remain alone......
If anyone has any advice how to overcome it

Hope the advice helps. It says I can't add you to my circle, but maybe you can add me if you like. Cheers.

Hello there, livia.
I'm new here too, so I hope this works.

Sad to say, there are just some people out there that know to say all the right things at all the right times just to get what they want from you. That's not to say he didn't mean what he said when he said it, it's just that some people, once they win you over, the reality of the commitment becomes clear and they panic.

For some, it's not the loving caring relationship they're after, but the chase itself.

You won't remain alone, hon. I promise. The only real cure, though, is time. Give yourself time to recover from him before moving on and make sure you know that you're not to blame for what 's happened. Some people are just like that.

I know it's hard not to feel a little ashamed for falling for his ruse, but you have to let that part of it go and NOT blame yourself for someone elses actions.

Hang in there.
