Knowing you've been used is one of the worst feelings. Although many people may have felt this with their family or friends,which hurts like hell, feeling this way because of a partner is worse. Being with someone who doesn't have your best interest in mind is hard to accept, but if you are aware of the signs your partner is using you, you can get out before you get too hurt.
Although I was never in a relationship with someone who used me, I casually dated someone that did. As a naturally giving person, I didn't notice that I was being used at first. I just brushed it off as him asking a friend for help. As time went on, however, I started realizing that the base of our relationship was me always giving to him without receiving anything in return.
One of the main reasons being used hurts is because it proves that the person's main focus always is and always will be on themselves. Although some people have the ability to change and grow once the issue is addressed, it can be difficult for some to conquer.
