To Trust, Or Not To Trust...

As it stands, I have inadvertently become part of the high school tabloids. I suppose it all started with the one rumor. The one tongue of a “friend” who has unexpectedly stabbed me in the back. I didn’t know that by allowing an innocent kiss to happen, I would become a whore. And all because an ex-girlfriend of his (who happened to break up with him so she could date his best friend), is jealous. Let's explore the definition of the word "whore". Merriam Webster Online defines it as "a woman who engages in sexual acts for money, a PROSTITUTE, a promiscuous or immoral woman, or a male who engages in sexual acts for money." Last I checked, I was none of these things. I do not sleep around, I do not make out with random guys, I do not sell myself to guys. Given that, is it right to slander someone's name without grounds? Yeah, I didn't think you would disagree, which is exactly the reason I have chosen to exclude their names. The guy with whom said kiss took place, heard the rumor a long time ago, and yet, when I asked him who it was, he wouldn't divulge that information. Well, now I know, and that's a good thing; not because I want revenge, but because now I truly know who my loyal friends are, and who not to trust.

It's so ridiculous sometimes. Hang in there. It's an age old problem. Back when I was in 8th grade and was so naive about sex it was laughable, there were rumors flying that I had 8 abortions--and I hadn't even ever kissed anyone! People can be stupid--and probably jealous. You know the truth. One day none of it will matter but unfortunately it will always hurt a little bit.
