Why don't guys/girls appreciate what they have until it's gone?

I am in terms of boyfriends and girlfriends. And you dump someone only to regret it later on. Why can't you appreciate what you have? Do you believe that if they truly cared they would never have dumped you?

  • When we are young we don't fully realize what we do and the consequences behind it. It's like your mother telling you not to ride on the handlebars and you do anyway until you actually get thrown off. Then reality hits and you realize there was a reason why she said it. We as people are generally blind to reality until it hits close to home. We think we can do just as good if not better with someone else, then we realize that no one else can make you feel the same way. With age comes wisdom, and with wisdom comes being careful of our actions and feelings.
