I just started my first year of college a month ago. I didn’t grow up super sheltered or anything, but my parents were fairly strict. I have only had one boyfriend in my life and I fell hard for him, so it was tough when he broke up with me for another girl last spring. I was destroyed for a long time, not like myself at all. School was put on the back burner, I didn’t care about friends, and all I wanted to do was hide in my room. My parents worked to help me get through the break up and I eventually bounced back. I went to college with a fresh perspective and ready to meet new people.
I met this guy named Ross in my English class and we automatically clicked. We would hang out and get coffee and just talk about whatever random things were on our minds. I liked him so much, and I couldn’t wait to get to English class just to see him. This past Saturday I ran into him at our school’s football game. We decided to go get some pizza after the game. After the pizza, we went back to his place. One thing led to another and we had sex. I hadn’t planned on it happening, it just did, but I felt okay with it. I called him on Sunday to say hi and to see if he wanted to get together. He acted really standoffish, then just abruptly said he would have to call me back…. Ummm, okay, fine…. He never called back, so I just went on with my day.
We had class the next day, so I figured we would just see each other then. He came late and sat across the room, even though I had saved him a seat next to me. He avoided eye contact with me the entire time. After class, I caught up with him in the hall and tried to spark up a conversation. He wouldn’t even look at me. He just said “Sorry, but I sort of have a girlfriend at home already. What happened was a mistake. I don’t think we should talk anymore.” I just stood there in the hallway feeling like the biggest idiot in the world. I had talked with him, laughed, and had sex, and the whole time he never had any intentions of us actually going anywhere. I’m so embarrassed and hurt, and now I have ti see him 3 days a week in class.
