Do guys ever feel bad for using/playing/betraying a girl?

My last guy used me for a year. Throughout the year he said i'm the type of girl he would change for, that he would want a relationship but isn't ready to get married, he would text i love you every night before he went to bed, flirt and compliment me etc. he would act extremely committed and we were practically a couple, except we werent. When he finally made a move and kissed me, i asked him what it meant and he said "its never going to happen" "id never marry you" "you're not the one for me and I'm not the one for you". All of that is fine, he clearly didn't care whether his words could hurt me but I did ask why he acted that way and that he clearly didn't really like me. He denied it and said i will not tell you that. But i don't get why he used me, betrayed me, hurt me and hardly feels any remorse? He even wanted to be friends with me "because he cares about me" but i stopped talking to him now. I have given up on love and basically everything. The pain is so debilitating and all i do is exist, its been almost 8 months since this happened. At the time he said he could see us getting serious and really would fall for me but that he doesn't want it. By now I basically know that he just didn't like me and used me (no guy ever has or will). I just want to know how such men can exist and why life is so unfair. I'm honestly extremely beautiful, smart, funny and down to earth.my friends say im a lottery (their words) but still no guy has ever liked me so i don't believe my friends and definitely think i must be hideous. I also have no interest in changing this since im tired of the struggle. I just want to know why a guy would do this (use a girl) and if they ever learn to care about it?

  • Funny you ask. Just today I was thinking to myself if I should have compassion for these girls that maybe they wanted to get to know me, maybe not. Who knows with you passive wallflowers? I got this girl's phone number. And I never really did much with it. I texted her a few times. I coincidentally ran into her again where I met her and I sat down with her and her friends and made some chit chat.

    I asked her out on a date, and she declined, as I intended. I asked her, "You weren't waiting for me to call were you?", and she said, "I never wait for anyone to call.", which seems like a healthy attitude to have. I kinda have to smirk to myself though, because it's not exactly accurate. The female strategy is to never be straightforward and pursue, so in reality, ALL SHE CAN DO is wait for someone to call. I hoped she wasn't waiting for my call, but whatever. Why should I care?

    It's not like women have ever shown any compassion for me. Jesus Christ! I can't even think of a single time a woman has shown any compassion or empathy for me. So no. I'm not gonna give two shits about "playing you" or "using you" from here on out.

    • I don't think you would be fine with hurting someone compassionate. I am now in the same place as you. The difference is that guys waste a lot of my time and emotions and then let me go. Be happy these girls don't waste your time and lead you on. But i think its fine to just use people. See I'm a little too fair, so I will tell then from the get go that im not interested in something serious. Why take out someone else's pain on an innocent person? But i agree, love is not worth it. Not for people who have seen more pain than happiness in love

    • Oh no. They have wasted my time and led me on. I'm not gonna take out any pain on anyone. That's not what it's about. It's about getting what I want for once instead of what she wants. I'm gonna get what I want. I'm pretty sure I'd sleep just fine using some who was compassionate. Hurt happens. Deal with it. I did.

    • Oh wow! Good luck then

  • "Do guys ever feel bad for using/playing/betraying a girl?"

    I've never used, played or betrayed a girl to my knowledge so I can't really say anything from my experience. As for all these, some guys will and others won't.

    "He said I'm the type of girl he would change for"

    People don't change for others, they change for themselves. Women get in relationships hoping for the best while changing their partner but it never happens.

    "He would want a relationship but isn't ready to get married"

    He never saw a long term relationship with you from the beginning, why put yourself through all of that?

    • He is really young, i think its realistic to not think of marriage at this point. isn't it important to see where things go? Or isn't this how guys think? Because it is how i think. But you are right, guys never see me as a longterm option. I dont know why he said he would change for me, i never had interest in changing a guy according to me. I also dont believe in it as i have seen my iwn brother and he would defo not change. I find it really strange how people think im beautiful and the full package and never stop thibking im amazing, but my experiences show me im not worth it to guys.. interesting

    • Age has nothing to do with seeing a long term relationship... I'm 19 and I've thought about being married and future kids etc... I'm not looking for it now, at the moment I only care about my education but it's always been a goal of mine. So, no that's not how guys think.

      You say guys never see as a long term option, that's because you've set a trend to go for the bad guys and most likely neglect anyone good. Maybe you like the challenge that an unavailable guy sets.

    • I so wish that was the case, then I don't have to put the blame on myself. But its something about me that just doesn'f make me worth it. They are good guys usually who just don't see themselves with me. Unfortunately thats all it is, i gave up.. i never want to fall in love since its a losing game for me. But i really wish i could know why this particular guy did it and if he will ever feel bad about it, i hope he never does it to anyone else again

  • As for this guy, from what you posted; it sounds like it's a "game" to him. As in to get what he wants. True he did all these things for you until you questioned him (I think it was when he was about to kiss you). Guys like that use it to "keep score" and see how "manly" they can be. Some guys feel bad from this. Some don't. Other guys don't do this at all. There are guys that also don't want to hurt another person (let alone a gal because they're still figuring out who they are).

    When you use the term "liked me", do you mean that they haven't found you attractive, flirted with you, hit on you? What do you mean?

  • There's a difference between using/playing and betraying. Don't confuse those terms.

    I never betrayed anyone.

    But yes, I did used some girls for different purposes (mainly to satisfy sexual needs). No, I don't feel sorry about it, because those girls didn't really respected themselves to begin with, that's why I picked them as a temporary solution.

    • Well i didn't mean any offence to anybody at all but i suppose what i was trying to get across is that it seems that guys take a lot longer to appreciate things such as being a 50/50 person rather than not! im not saying that is across the board but it does seem to take us longer to settle.

    • The question you're asking has nothing to do with man or woman. Both genders do this. You shouldn't use a situation like this to force sexist ideas into your own head by wording things that way over and over

    • Did I say only men do it? No, but i am straight and don't have to deal with women doing it. I have never lead anyone on, i am not someone who could ever do that. I made a very accurate statement, since you don't do it.. you wouldn't know if a guy who does would ever feel bad about it. my story is true and it really happened to me, the guy apologised for misleading me. He knew he did it, the apology was probably to rid himself of the guilt.

    Don't listen to guys who say they will change for you. How can you be so dense? I find it hard to sympathise with you because you allowed yourself to be blinded by his charm.

    Every girl complains nonstop about "ohhhh no guys treat me right. There is no chance for me". But you don't realize that you are likiting your options by about 80% when you only date men that are 'in your league'. If you expanded your horizens, it wouldn't be so "unfair".

    • Wow so many accusations without knowing anything.. bravo! First off, my friends are always the ones throwing themselves into crappy situations. This particular situation, he did everything for me. And when he said the whole changing comment, it was in a general discussion about some common friends. I don't know why he said it to me. I moved on, he would travel across country to see me, send me flowers, call me every day, compliment me every day, consistently plan dates etc. i didn't realise that the lack of red flags could still mean he wasn'f serious about me. And not all guys are horrible, in fact most of the guys I have dealt with were good guys. Even he was until he mislead me and he even apologised for it. Who knows how sincere it was. I did not allow myself to be blinded by his charm. I told him i dont have sex unless i am in a relationship, so we never had sex. I avoided his moves for months! Until he really got serious or faked it whatever. So please, im not a bimbo and i filter

  • These are the guys who get the ladies, I wish I could do this too.

    • I don't believe that at all. Those guys that you say you don't know are flirting with you are probably not themselves anyway. They are probably hiding behind someone else's identity to make you think it's you not flirting with them.

  • Tbh I don't think one guy in the world would ever feel bad if there is I sure have not met this guy! They may say that they feel bad but trust me they don't!
