A couple of weeks ago I started seeing this guy. We were hanging out and eventually had sex a few times. Though, he's 21 and I'm 16. When we first started hanging out, without instigation, kept telling me that he liked me. He then told me that he wanted a relationship even though he wasn't mentally able to be in one. Though last time we had sex, he hasn't really spoken many words to me since even if I try to. I've been trying to see new guys but I still feel terrible and used.
Maybe seeking new relationships or new guys isn’t the best way to get over it. When we’ve been hurt, sometimes it helps to have someone new come along, or a friend to give us a hug or words of wisdom, but most of the time when we’ve been hurt, we need deep thought and introspection from ourselves. Learn from the pain, try to understand the mistakes you made and use it to strengthen you so you can use it next time. It’s okay to make mistakes, to say that you’ve been used, hurt, and admit that you’re scared for the next one. But as long as you try your best and learn from every experience—especially by the people who hurt you—you will not fail.
And then time passes, even when it seems impossible. Eventually, you’ll be okay, and love will find you when you least expect it.
