I have only been in one relationship, and it was awful. My ex-boyfriend basically told my whole small town that I was easy. Now, it has been two years since I have dated him. I am so scared to put myself out there. I swear my ex boyfriend broke my confidence that there are good men out there. Especially since he spread rumors about me. Any advice on how to start dating again?

I can understand where you're coming from. My ex cheated on me with her own uncle (yuck, incest) when she was 20 and he was 60, just because he had something which i didn't - MONEY. That was almost 5 years ago, and this experience has left me so emotionally scarred that I haven't even attempted to approach women since the last 5 years. Exact same situation as you, she destroyed my confidence and made me lose hope of there being faithful women. But still, I'm slowly coming to grips with the reality. I got over her pretty fast, but its taking an awful lot of time for me to be able to actually trust any woman for something more than friendship.
So you see, some people get back their confidence sooner than others. In case of you and me, we're taking a REALLY long time for that, but I'm pretty confident that it will happen! Cheers! :)0
