    Don't you dare run back to him.

    Don't you dare do that to yourself. I understand that you miss him like crazy but I swear it'll pass. When you want to text him asking how he is, don't. Text your best friend instead. When you're completely drunk and your fingers are ready to dial his number, don't. Put your...
