In most cases, even relationships that crashed and burned had SOME wonderful element to them. After all, we’re attracted to people in the first place for a reason.

And as much as we may not want to admit it to others, or to ourselves, we often miss the heck out of people, as these anonymous contributors will tell you.

“Give me my money back, give me my money back, you b**ch
I want my money back, and don’t forget
To give me back my black t-shirt.”
– Ben Folds Five, Song for the Dumped
