my first love hurt :( but it was a good learning experience.

It was a very painful learning experience, but a learning experience nonetheless. There was this guy who had a YouTube channel, and I developed a little crush on him. Two years later we started talking online, and fell in love. I was a little skeptical about dating someone I had never met, but we decided to try out the long distance relationship thing. After 7 months of being "official", we finally met. We tried to see each other every few months. After a while I decided to leave everything behind and move across the country to where he was, just to be with him. I was 18 years old, and it was my first time living away from home. I had a very hard time there, and I knew no one. Our relationship started to get really rocky, but we managed to get through it and got engaged. Until I started finding out about his cheating, and every day I died a little more inside. It turns out that he had been cheating on me with every girl he could find, from day one to the day I broke up with him. He was a compulsive liar and I went through hell during that relationship. He was much older than I was, and he took advantage of the young naive girl I was back then. He manipulated me and took away every bit of self confidence I had. He tried to make me feel like I was no one, so that I wouldn't look for anyone else. And he wouldn't allow me to speak to my friends or family, and he would get violent if I did. He kept me restrained in this little shell, and he didn't want anyone to know how he treated me. It's a very long story, and it was the darkest chapter of my life. But eventually, I finally got the courage to put my foot down. Although I was scared of him, I called my mother one day while he was at work, and told her everything. So we came up with a plan to get me out of there safely. My father took a plane to where I was on his next day off, we put what little belongings I had in a suitcase, and took a cab to the airport. I left without a word, and I have never seen him again...0
