Whether February 14 is a date on your calendar you highlight with a heart or cross off with a giant X, there's no denying Valentine's Day is all about romance and couples and ooh la la

We at KPCC would like to temporarily switch gears in days leading up to Valentine's, though, and ask a different sort of question: Who is the best ex you've ever had? 

Perhaps he or she is a lost love or a partner turned best friend. Maybe you were fortunate enough to have a really good breakup ... or he or she is just a person you're happy to leave behind. 

Whatever the case, we'd love to hear your story.
