Exes. I have so many. Some I still think about, others, I can barely remember their last name. The ones I met in my early years, then school and college, and many in my early days of working life.

You must be aware by now of a new phenomenon of sorts that's making waves on social media - that of 20 Strangers. The first was 20 strangers who were asked to kiss each other for the first time ever. (Um, awkward)   Then of course, there was a parody - 20 strangers giving each… Read More
