      Naaah preflop there's no way I'm calling KQo OOP, what is your plan with that exactly? 3bet or fold is the way to go, to keep yourself out of spots like THIS :)

      The BTN raised so often so i thought that it is ok to just call, and on the flop he almost every time C/R but now i see that you are right, god i have to do something to keep myself out of such situations.

      With marginal hands like this and your AQo its best to fold to an agressor in front of you unless you think they are maniacs / stealing, in which case you 3bet for value.

      As played definantly bet-fold on the flop, effectively an information bet. You are asking "can you beat TP with okay kicker" and villain answered... you should have taken his word here I think :)

      Seems like you have a noticable "2nd best cards" leak where you play cards that are otherwise pretty good into raised pots (AQ, KQ). Make a general rule for yourself - (except vs maniac / steal) these cards are first raise or fold, no in betweens, and certainly never - ever - call.
