He Only Wanted One Thing

I finally decided to take up this really nice guy's offer to meet after communicating with him on the internet for a month. He seemed so pleasant and such a gentleman. Naive as I was, I met him at his apartment, not expecting sex. I thought we would just talk and maybe decide to go steady. I am a Mormon girl (meaning no sex before marriage) and not too worldly. Instead, I lost my virginity to him. The sex was pleasant enough and he was affectionate. Next day, he said he would call. No call came. Nor the next. I finally mustered up the guts to call him late one night. He said he had to work 5:30am in themorning, so he couldn't talk. I decided to say hi on the internet, but he just ignored me. It's been almost a month and he still ignores me. My heart is in shreds and my morals are in the dust. I feel like a whore and unworthy. This is enough to make me turn Catholic, turn against all men, and become a nun!
