I was dating this guy for six months...

"I was dating this guy for six months we talked about a family and getting married. He decided one day to kick me out. A month later I found I was pregnant. I sent a picture he said he didn't receive the positive test. It was just lies with more lies. Then joy, the next day he said someone else was pregnant by him. Our children would be a month a part. He lied and cheated.

I was distraught, disappointed he later said he was joking. It was too late I took the pill. I never went back. I cried. The hurt I feel is unimaginable. I'm just glad I didn't bring a baby into a horrible situation." —Amanda
