    I Saw Him Again Today

    I Don't Know How To Live Without Him.

    I am 26 years old. My ex and I started dating in March of 2010, we broke up a little more than a year later. Yes, I know what you're thinking. It was only a year. Well, let me tell you, so many things happened in that one year, it's enough to last a lifetime. My ex is one of...
