My boyfriend and I were together for three years... off and on. Eventually things broke off and we continued to talk and hangout, but with me attending college in a different place... things got difficult. We were hanging out like we usually do and he just seemed to think it was okay to talk to me and different girls at the same time.
Not to be selfish but I quickly said to him, "If you wanna talk to other girls that's fine but I'm not gonna be one of the few." He then said, "Fine" and stopped talking to me. I found out I was pregnant a few weeks later.
When I told him, he didn't even give it any thought. He just said, "You have to get an abortion." I honestly was going to keep it but the more and more he said things about the future, it started to rattle me. I didn't wanna have to do it alone.
He even gave me half the money to get it but the whole two months I was pregnant, he was out partying and living the life and it kinda sucked for me. I didn't have anyone to talk to and I couldn't dare tell my parents. I just felt alone.
My friend took me to get it and I still never got a text or call from him. Two days later, he finally texted me and asked if I was okay. This changed my life... and I love this man, but I know I need to let him go. He couldn't be there for me when I needed him most... and it kind of sucks. I'm going to college and it's really hard to focus when all you can think about is this.
