We’ve all been there at some point.

You’re sitting around, maybe a little intoxicated, thinking of your ex, missing them, wanting to reach out. But you don’t know if it’s in good taste. You don’t know if it’s a good idea. And anyway, what would you even say at this point?

And sometimes, we succumb anyway. How does it go from there? It depends on a lot of things, as we can see from these anonymous stories.
