Can You Date Someone With The Same Name As Your Ex?

Your first love more often than not leads to your first heartbreak.  It’s a hard lesson most of us have to learn, but in the end it’s for the better. Initially, I blamed my ex.  Called him every name in the book, drunk dialed too many times to count, cried like the world was ending,…
