Women Have More Romantic Regrets

What's Your Biggest Romantic Regret?


The one that got away. A one-night stand that wouldn't go away. Regrets? You may have had a few. A new study found that among women, romance is the most common source of regret.

The most cited specific cause of anxiety, explains the author's study, is "a missed opportunity or someone you knew in college [with whom] it didn’t quite work out." Not divorcing sooner was another. As for non-love-related regrets, not being kind enough to a family member, choosing money over your dreams, and not going to college were also cited. Now I'm curious, what's your biggest love-life regret?

Choosing a college based on where my "true love" went. It was over a month after I got there.

ahhhhh i've made so many mistakes! i'd love to take many of them back. given, they led me to where i am now, so they might not be so horrible after all.

If I had a chance to go back and restart knowing what I now know, I would. In a NY minute.

Leading a really nice guy on for four years, on again off again etc. Pretty sure I turned a nice guy into another jerk who thinks women are the devil. Sorry, everyone.

My biggest romantic regret is sleeping with a guy just before I started dating my now-ex-boyfriend. :/
