He wasn't really there.

He was my first boyfriend. Of course, I was head over heals in love with him. I thought we were the perfect couple. But I had no clue about what was going on in his head. Turns out he was never into me. Here's how I found out:

He only ever treated me like a friend. I was fine with that. I liked him way too much. But later on, I was fed up with it. I decided to dump him because he would never show any affection.

So I dumped him. In the morning. One a Friday. I still liked him, but I wasn't going to admit that to anyone. I found out the following Monday he found a new girlfriend. He had asked one of my friends out LATER THAT DAY. I was so offended. I found out he had liked her for MONTHS while dating me. He actually knew her number. He hugged her every time he saw her and gave her a kiss every day, whereas with me he would hug me at the end of each day and rarely ever kiss me. You can't imagine how pissed I was. And over 2 months later, here I am, still mad. Or maybe it's just jealousy. I'm not sure.
