I met Zack in a club just over two years ago. The first thing I re­mem­ber about him was how talkative and well-dressed he was. I was on a night out with some friends when he came over. We got chat­ting and it didn’t take long be­fore we were kiss­ing. At the end of the night we swapped num­bers and started dat­ing al­most im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards.

At first we had a lot of fun. I’m quite a shy per­son, so I liked that he was con­fi­dent and chatty, and my friends loved him: they thought he was re­ally sweet. But things changed as time went on. He was so cute and po­lite when we first met, but the more I got to know him, it be­came clear he wasn’t that per­son. He was cocky and in-your-face, and he tried too hard to present a ‘cool’ im­age of him­self when he was around his friends. Just be­fore my 21st birth­day, we broke it off by text. I didn’t want to do it in per­son. I wasn’t bothered when it ended – al­though when we’d met, I’d won­dered if he could end up be­ing my big first love, I know now that I never loved him. He was def­i­nitely more into it than I was.

When we met up, we barely men­tioned our re­la­tion­ship – there’s noth­ing more to say. I thought the date could be a good chance for us to start a friend­ship, but I was sur­prised by the kind of per­son he turned out to be; he was lad­dish and im­age-ob­sessed. I was also an­noyed when I left, as he was con­stantly try­ing to flirt with me – on the drive home I was stuck in traf­fic and he mes­saged me say­ing that I should have just stayed at his in­stead. I thought it was a sly thing to say, and I haven’t spo­ken to him since then.
