I dont know why my car is doing it but but i go through one of those little bottles of break fluid about every month. All of my connections to bleed the breaks are tight, and I dont think that its any of the lines under the car because, besided my very minor oil leak, its clean. What am i missing? could it be the master cylinder?

BTW, the car does have ABS.

I have seen MCs (regular vacuum boosted MCs and manual brake MCs) leak out the back of the MC and leak into the vac booster, or in the case of manual mrakes, leak into the dust boot / inside of the car. Years ago, a friend had a car that would squirt a shot of brake fluid on his foot every time he stepped on the pedal. Car went thru a quart of fluid a day until we replaced the MC.

no, my car does nothing like this. Is it possible that there is a connection just under the mc that is leaking?

Could be a leak under the MC. First place to look is the pressure switch that feeds the PRC brake pressure info. It is under the MC, and I have heard of a few cases where they leak.
