Doug 1

I am a 19 year old college student... I've had 3 sexual partners in my life, 2 being guys and 1 being a girl. ...

My name is Danny I'm currently 16 years old. My first time I believe was when I was 14. I really liked liked this guy.... The next wk I found him asking so many boys and girls out.

He told me right after it's over I just don't feel anything anymore.

But I can't control my thoughts. I have been trying to figure out who i am. I went through the same thing 2 years ago... But i convinced myself that it was just a stage in my life.
