This breakup happened to me when I was in grade eleven. I’m now 24 and married, I’m not sure where the guy is.
I had met Brody when I was dating one of his friends, the guy I was dating just wasn’t ready for a relationship and we just stopped going out, neither of us were disappointed. Brody was short and somewhat different looking but his personality and love of life was what attracted me to him. He was always surrounded by friends and doing something fun. Before I had met him I only had a couple friends and loved the idea of having a large group of people that was always around.
Brody and I hit it off immediately and started hanging out as friends shortly after I stopped seeing the other man. We would go for drives and hang out in his garage while him and his friends worked on his car. I would go to all of his hockey and rugby games. It was great. We always seemed to be doing something fun.
A few weeks after we started hanging out he asked me to be his girlfriend, I was ecstatic. We want to all of his dances together and spent everyday hanging out or going to parties. Everything seemed to be perfect until one evening when we went to a beach party. His best friend Jamie got extremely drunk and decided that skinny dipping in front of his friends was the right thing to do. We quickly decided it was time to drive him home. On the drive home Jamie was crying in the back seat because him and his long term girlfriend had broken up a few weeks back and he was rambling on about how much he loved her. Brody and I were silent in the front seat. A few moments passed and Brody said, “You know, I love you a lot.” I was shocked, Brody had a track record of girlfriends but none that he ever said I love you to. I stuttered a reciprocating I love you too but it didn’t sound sincere because I was so shocked. We continued the drive home, dropped Jamie off and then he took me home.
My parents were strict when I was in high school so I wasn’t allowed to stay out past midnight or stay over at a boyfriend’s house.
Over the next few weeks the weather continued to get warmer and we continued to go to parties and have fun but he seemed to be getting distant more and more every time we saw each other. He started to go out without me and make excuses for why I couldn’t come, I was really disappointed because I had began to really love the people we were hanging around with. I should have seen the signs where it was going but I didn’t want it to happen so bad.
The last day I ever saw Brody he was going to his friend’s cottage on a lake about 30 minutes from where we live and said he didn’t have room in his car for me to come but he wished I could have. My parents volunteered to drive me down to the lake so that I could spend the day there. When I arrived I was greeted with all of his friends who were excited to see me and immediately poured me a drink. I asked around where Brody was but no one knew. I was getting the vibe that he didn’t want to see me but I needed to just hear it from him. When I finally found him he was hiding in another friend’s cottage. I tried to confront him but he ran away. I was really surprised. I then noticed him walking on the beach with one of his girl friends, they were talking and suddenly she walked away from him and was coming right towards me. She told me that Brody wanted to break up with me but didn’t want to tell me in person so he asked her to do it. I wasn’t shocked, I was just disappointed because I felt like I was going to lose all the friends I had made by being with him. I was disappointed that I had driven all the way to this lake to see him because he made it seem like he wanted me to be there but had just lied when he said his car was full. I started crying and the girl told me not to bother. I just shook my head and walked away to call my parents and get them to take me home. They had no problem coming to get me. I was so embarrassed that this happen in front of so many people.
After we broke up I never saw Brody again. I got over it soon after realizing I was more attached to the fun lifestyle then the man himself. I never again got to hang out with that crowd of people.2,730 Comments
When I was 15 I met a guy named Armon. He had just moved to my small town and we hit it off instantly. He was one year older than me. We went to the same church and high school. We started dating and everything was fine. Since we were both involved in church there were no conflicts in our opinions about waiting to have sex, or so I thought. It wasn’t as much a religious thing for me as I knew I wasn’t ready. My mom had my oldest brother when she was 17 and I did not want to repeat her mistakes.
A few months after we started dating he started pressuring me to go farther than I wanted to. I always said no and he wouldn’t ask again until a few days later. One Friday he asked if I wanted to go to the mud boggs that Saturday. (Mud boggs are a redneck thing. Small town life) I said I couldn’t because I had a football game Friday and a band competition Saturday. Also, my mom wouldn’t let me stay out past 11pm and I knew how long the boggs ran. I was a good kid and not the kind to sneak around and disobey my parents.
Monday came and Armon was a little distant at school. This continued until church on Wednesday. I knew what was going to happen but I was not going to give him an easy out and break up with him first. After church he called me and was beating around the bush. I told him just to say it. He did, said we should break up that he was young and wanted to date other people. I was fine with it. I never had any delusions that we were meant to be or any of that high school melodrama crap.
The next day at school my friend Elizabeth came up to me and was apologizing and saying “He said he already did it.” I asked what she was talking about. She went on to tell me that at the boggs Saturday Armon told her that he had broken up with me Friday. They hooked up. I didn’t really have any feelings about the whole thing. I was glad my friend was honest with me.
High school went on. We all stayed friends, well, as much as we could be given what happened. Eight years later, he is married with two children now and doing great. I’m still single by choice and loving the single life.2,235 Comments
It is because of some lying scheming female named Allison that I barely get to see my brother anymore. It’s like once or twice a year if I’m lucky. It all started a year ago when my brother Benji started sophomore year and I started my freshmen year of high school. This girl named Allison transferred in to our school from out of the district so no one really knew much about her. She and my brother started hanging out a lot and then they decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend. Allison was always babysitting her little one-year-old brother Jose, like every day! She would bring him with her when she came to our house or Benji would have to go over there because Jose was napping so she couldn’t leave. Everything seemed okay for a while, then my brother started getting weird phone calls on his cell. It was some guy who was just yelling and cursing and threatening to kick Benji’s ass. My parents had his number changed but the calls started up again a few days later. At that point, we were almost certain that it was someone he knew or a fried playing a joke, but it was so much worse.
One night Allison shows up at our house, crying and asking to speak to Benji. She told him that they needed to talk, and it was during this talk that Allison told him that the guy calling him everyday was Antonio, her ex-boyfriend. Then she dropped the bombshell: Jose was not her little brother, he was her son! Apparently, she had gotten pregnant at like 13, so her mom moved her to another city and acted as though the baby was her’s so Allison could have a normal high school experience. Antonio had stayed behind in Bay Ridge, about 2 hours north. He had gone to juvi for robbery and assault for 2 years. Now that he was getting out, he wanted to get back into Allison and Jose’s lives. She said that she had full custody of the baby and wanted nothing to do with Antonio. We thought everything would be okay. Then one day a group of guys jumped my brother after basketball practice. One of the guys kicked my brother in the face and told him he better leave his girl Allison alone or it would get worse. Benji’s jaw was dislocated, he had a cracked rib, and was in tons of pain. He stayed in the hospital for two weeks and Allison kept coming by and crying, and trying to involve herself in family discussions. Benji’s friend came by one day to tell him that Allison and Antonio had never broken up, and she had been talking to him and visiting him in jail the whole time she was with Benji. She just thought she wouldn’t get caught and could keep her lies straight. But this world is too small and Antonio’s cousin ended up being best friend’s with one of Benji’s good friends, and that’s how everything was found out and Benji got hurt.
My mom was so worried about Benji that she decided to send him to live with our grandparents in Hawaii! I was numb when they told me. We only visited them once a year, and they would fly out every now and then, so now I’d only be seeing my brother a few times a year?! I said that I wanted to go too, but my mom said that I was doing well in school and two teenagers would be too much for our grandparents, so I had to stay behind. I have never cried so hard than I did the day Benji left. To make things a million times worse, I saw Allison and Antonio hugged up and making out in the mall the next weekend. Guess she wasn’t too broken up over Benji moving away when she had her baby daddy back! I hate her, she took my brother from me all because she thought she was slick enough to slut around and not get caught.2,765 Comments
My first serious boyfriend and I start dating at 16 after being friends for 3 years. We went to the same school but it was a large school of 350 students in our grade and we were involved in different activities. When he asked me out on a date I was very hesitant. I knew I was attracted to him and I knew even at that young of an age( I’m 26 now) that once you cross that line into romantic love there is just no going back to friendship love. Well, I ended up agreeing to go out with him. We both fell hard fast and it got heavy fast. We experienced everything together emotionally & physically. I come from a poorer background and his family was extremely well off. We had been dating a little over a year and a half and I could tell his family was really getting tired of me being over at their house constantly and plus Blake was very hands on and not even slightly trying to hide it ( we were young!!) On top of his parents being well to do they were also deeply religious and didn’t care for my inappropriate jokes and being so mute towards religion. It just kept getting harder and harder senior year. He was prepping for an ivy league school and I was planning on going local community so I could do theater for a year. He was more & more distant due to his studying and one day he took me home and parked at the end of my driveway and proceeded to tell me while about to break down in tears, that he didn’t have time for a girlfriend and we were headed separate ways etc etc
He did this while sitting in his truck and not even looking me directly in the face the entire time which leads me to believe that was his parents doing not his own. I told him I was in love with him, I begged and pleaded for him to stay & he never looked at me and said softly I need to go At this point there were only 7 weeks left of school in which him and I didn’t speak one word to one another. When we graduated he hugged me kissed me on cheek while his mother grimaced in agony and told me that he loved me and always would and wished me luck. It stung. I recently saw him about 3 years ago. He’s married with two kids and has a great job. It sucks though because I’ve never loved anyone as much as I loved him & I never will .
I have made some pretty stupid mistakes in my lifetime but there is nothing I can do about them now. So I just have to sit and suffer everyday with the choices I made. When I was 15 year old I met BJ and he was the guy of my dreams. He was the perfect mix of bad boy but nothing too serious just a trouble maker. We started hanging out during the summer and I would miss curfew and sneak out just to spend time with him. It was young love and he was “the one.” When school resumed in the fall, he transferred to my school and everything was perfect. I daydreamed all of the time about our future together and how wonderful everything would be. Then one day out of no where he meets me in our usual spot after school and asks me to walk with him. We got a few blocks down, and he just blurts out that he didn’t want to be in a relationship with me anymore. He said that he was young and wanted to have the freedom to make new friends and date other girls if he wanted to. I was destroyed and it seemed like all he cared about was hooking up with other girls. He didn’t shed a single tear while I stood there crying a river to him, begging him not to end us like that. I stayed home from school for the rest of the week because I couldn’t even pull myself out of bed. When I went back to school a bunch of people kept asking me if I knew that BJ and this girl named Lana were going out. Of course I didn’t and when I saw the two of them holding hands in the hallway, I felt the life leave my body. This was my guy holding hands with some other girl. I had loved and supported him through a bunch of stuff in our 9 months together and I was the one who encouraged him to transfer to my school instead of whatever school the district was going to stick him in. I hated him and Lana.
About a month after BJ and Lana started going out, he starts texting me asking how I’m doing and calling me at random times to say that he was just checking in. Then he told me he missed me and that he wasn’t sure what he wanted anymore. One night BJ came over my house and told me that he had broken up with Lana and wanted to give us another try. He said that he had missed his true love. That was the first night that BJ ever spent the night and it was amazing. We started sneaking around and spending the night together whenever we could. Lana tried to cause a bunch of drama at school with me but I already had what I wanted so there was no reason to fight her. She was just mad that I had won, she tried to steal my man and lost. One weekend, I was with my cousin and a few friends getting dresses for our Spring formal. I had been sick with a flu the past week and still didn’t feel good. While we were at the mall I started to feel awful like I was going to pass out. I got the chills and had horrible stomach pains. My cousin thought something was seriously wrong, so she called my mom to come get me. My mom drove me to the emergency room. They thought I might have appendicitis or something, but they had to do some other tests first. One of the doctors comes back into my room and tells me that I was pregnant. he said something else about seeing my OBGYN and other stuff that I couldn’t hear because I was in total shock. My mom was so mad at me that she didn’t say anything. When we got home she told my dad and they made me call BJ over. When he got there they started yelling at us and asking how we planned to take care of a baby and why we had been so stupid. BJ was pissed, saying that I had done something to trap him and then he got into a huge argument with my dad. I decided that I was keeping the baby because it was the right thing to do. When I went to talk to B at school the next week, he was sitting against the railing on the field with Lana wrapped in his arms! I went crazy and wanted to know what the f#@k was up! He just looked at me like he didn’t even know who I was and says “I’m in high school and you want to play mommy. I’ve got a girlfriend so go find your baby’s daddy or something!” So now I’m going to be raising my baby on my own and I have to get a DNA test to prove that BJ is the dad. Great way to start Junior year!2,198 Comments
Okay so sorry if this gets sorta long but I need to make sure that I explain everything. I have never hated someone so much in my life as I do my ex bf Carson. Carson and I met at freshmen orientation a week before high school started. We talked and flirted a little but not too much could happen because we were both with our parents. We got closer after school started and pretty much had all the same friends. Everyone knew us as the pair that weren’t really a couple but were in a way. Like every girl knew not to try and hook up with Carson because he was with me. We became an official couple at the beginning of summer after freshmen year. We spent the whole summer with each other, just being in love and enjoying our vacation from school. We would always go to the beach and hang out with our friends, and spent the evenings watching movies.
When school started we found out that we only had one class together that semester. I was crushed. We tried to get our schedules changed, but the counselor said we had no reason to be switching all of our classes. So, we went to our separate classes. I tried to catch up with him at lunch but I found out that he was off campus already with a group of friends. This started happening a lot and I felt ignored and neglected. The only time we saw each other was after school sometimes and on the weekend. Then, even the weekends started to be a problem for him. I would call and text him, and he wouldn’t call back for hours saying that he didn’t have his phone on him.
One day during third period, I got a text from Carson asking to meet during lunch. I got so excited because I thought we would finally have some time together. When I got to the courtyard, Carson hugged me but pulled back fast before I could kiss him. Then he looked me right in the eyes and said that he and another girl named Victoria had been hanging out lately, and that he wanted to break up with me instead of cheating. I was so hurt and humiliated. How could someone do that to their true love? Carson and Victoria became a couple that same day, and I saw them in the hall holding hands the week after that. I hate high school boys!2,100 Comments
