Top Ten Things People Regret Most

The Top Ten Things People Regret Most

1 Their choice of partners for relationships

This is one of the things I regret the most whenever I think about the past. A few years ago when I was in high school, I always overlooked the sweet girls that were truly interested in me because of my personality and character. Instead, I was drawn to the cool, popular girls who just wanted short-term relationships and took advantage of me for their own interests. Now that I'm in college and more mature, I'm largely attracted to girls because of their personality instead of their looks or popularity and look to form a strong, genuine connection with them. - rapaddict97

2 Speaking in anger

I'm still very short tempered, but sometimes I just ignore, when I see here people criticizing metal (those who don't even know about it, just babble about it and make lists regarding it) to hell with them! - Ananya

I done this way too many times. - Britgirl

3 Hurting someone's feelings

I hate doing this, especially when I don't mean to, which seems to happen quite a lot, unfortunately. - Elric-san

One girl asked me about her plaid shirt and I said "No offense but that top is hideous girl." I made her cry, It's not my fault plaid is hideous to me! - Moxii

4 Giving away a secret

That's why, don't trust others too much - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

5 Having "fun" with the wrong person

I did not want to say the word that I am thinking if because there might be a kid somewhere and I don't want to get flagged. - flock01

Bro, say sex. If little kids faint over the word sex, then they shouldn't be on this site. - Therandom

6 Not learning from their mistakes
7 Breaking up
8 Trusting others

Don't trust others too much. Doing so hurts you (or even KILLS you). I've learned this the hard way - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

More like trusting the wrong person, people like to use my trust to ale a fool out of me. - SamuiNeko

I only trust myself now-a-days. - AGK

9 Wasting time

I love it here, but I'm making regrets right now. I know I will regret the time I spent on a screen instead of experiencing real communication. I guess I just don't have the will to leave and experience life. - keycha1n

10 Having kids

The Newcomers

? Hanging with the wrong crowd

The Contenders

11 Moving to another place

Country, state, city, town, village, Continent, planet - flock01

12 Wasting money
13 Cheating

No chance of regret here. I have never or would never cheat on someone I loved. Nor would I get involved with a married man, (harmless flirting doesn't count) however much I wanted to be with him - or (unlikely to happen) however much he wanted to be with me. As old-fashioned as is sounds, I believe in monogamy. - Britgirl

14 Getting married

Approximately 40-50 percent of first marriages and 60 percent of second marriages end in divorce. And divorce is complicated. Why even bother with marriage if it probably won't last anyway?
