Well I hope everbody's Valentine's Day was great and full of love. Unfortunately this year mine was not nor even close. After about a year and a month my boyfriend decide he wanted to end our relationship. I am completely heartbroken and I miss him. We both still love each other and care a lot for the other person, but Wes feels as if it's time for him to leave the relationship. This break up is reall hard for me. Wes was my longest relationship to date, and I really couldn't picture my life without him. It's a long and complicated matter and I wouldn't want to bore you so I'll leave it short.

So look forward to hearing more about it in the future.
