Left High and Dry

I am a twenty-one-year-old female and I live in Idaho. I was dating this twenty-three-year-old guy who I liked for a few months. Three months went by of us dating and we made an agreement that we didn't want to be five hours apart anymore. So, I asked him to move in with me and he said ok. I then found out four days later that no one I had met in his family wanted him to be with me and they thought he could do better. They made up an excuse to get him to move back home and away from me. I think he just wanted to use me for money and sex and then, since he got those, he left me high and dry. He gave his family their wish and didn't care how I felt or how much it would hurt me.
