We were so close to having it all.

About 2 months ago I fell hard. I was beyond infatuation. I thought he was cute, he thought I was cute, we started talking, the usual. He asked for my number and texted me for hours every day for a month. He was amazing, sweet, and everything I've ever wanted. He was 2 years older than me, had his license, seemed so mature.. and that's exactly what I was looking for. We never got mad at each other and we told each other how we felt. And we had very strong feelings. It seemed like a fairy tale.. and it was too good to be true.
We stopped talking less and less and he ended up only calling me once a week. I heard from his friend that all he wanted was sex.. I didn't believe this at all but still wanted to ask him about it. He kept saying things like "I didn't use you for sex. If I would have wanted sex then I would not have asked you out.." I told him about a rumor i heard that he didn't want anything to do with me anymore.. and he said that's completely untrue. One week later, I saw him with his new girlfriend.
Turns out I was the string-along girl. I feel so embarrassed and hurt.. and he's everywhere. Turns out no one even likes his girlfriend and everyone says he's looking for pleasure.. I can't believe he would do this to me.. My heart breaks every time I see him.
