Is it sad to wish that I had experienced more breakups in my life so that I could relate to more breakup songs? I mean, breakup songs are undeniably some of the best songs out there.

Okay. just kidding. I know mine and Jacob’s relationship is legit even though we never broke up while dating. But really, all I have is one lousy high school break up? How did I cheat myself the catharsis of evoking so many bittersweet feelings every time I listen to a great record??
