i was involved with a guy on and off for 6 years and after a slight argument, he left never to be seen again. this was over 8 years ago and my ego is still bruised and I'm still hurting. it was a love match or anything, but I would have thought that he had a little more regard for me than that. I could see a one night stand disappearing on you but not someone you knew for that long. his actions were the straw that broke the camels back. I have not been involved with or had sex with anyone since him. not because I can't get over him but because I'm tired of taking chances and being hurt and disappointed. I feel that guys have ruined the self esteem and confidence that I used to have and try as I might, I just can't get it back.
