32. She told everyone I’d beaten her, raped her, cheated on her, and got her pregnant.
“Going into high school, I dated a girl for a few months. Things got too serious, and she broke up with me. Big deal, I was bummed but I knew I’d live. My best friend moved away right as summer started so I spent a lot of time alone.
Fast forward to the first day of school, almost all my “friends” refuse to talk to me. There were rumors about me that I had (check all that apply):
)beaten this girl
)raped this girl
)cheated on this girl
)gotten this girl pregnant
I was beyond words. She broke up with me! Why the fuck was she straight up lying about me? I ended up having to basically reforge all my social circles to not include people who were salty over things that literally never happened.
Here’s the kicker: She didn’t spread the rumors. Her psycho best friend who was secretly in love with her did. This girl was a year ahead of my ex and I, so that explains why I could never trace the rumors.
The ex and I smoothed things out right before graduation, so I feel good about that.”
