How do you know if it's love?

How do you know if it's love?
Contributor

I had a boyfriend and i thought that he loved me and that i loved him. I was dead wrong...

We were dating for about 6 months and we always said i love you. he made me feel special and he always
said that i was so beautiful and that i was the best thing that had ever happened to him.

Well, he was a liar. he fucked 7 other girls when he was with me and he lied and said that he was moving to his dad's house and when i dumped him he tried to get me back and it worked for like a week and then i
dumped him again.

He didn't call or txt me for 6 months and he finally txts me saying that he wants me back and i was stupid
enough to say fine. 5 minutes later he is trying to talk me into sending nudes and i realize that he was
only using me. i called him a piece of shit and that he was the worst thing that evr happened to me and
that i deserve better then his white ass ;) i was way proud of myself.

i guess what i'm trying to say is that you need to know if he really loves you and wants to have a future with
you and that your relationship isn't based on lies and if he cheats or uses you cut ur strings fast cuz i ended up in a bad situation.. i got raped. i was in a room with him and i thought i loved him i told him no and he kept proceeding.. guys cant control themselves but we women can.
