Actually it's often what we regret the most in our lives, but the regret comes later on in life. I have 2 great teachers who have been through that, both of them had a love interest when they were like 17 but they were just too shy to make a move and the girls eventually moved on and married someone else. They are both very sad and regretful about this and often talk about it during class and always tell us that if we want something we have to go for it or regret is all we will find. Now both teachers are about 55 years old, one of them was married 10 years ago and have 2 very young children and the other has left the romantic world to devote his life to teaching, but is still very sad about it and would talk to me about his younger experiences and how he regrets things.

It's nice he was honest with you about how he feels. Instead of leading you on like many would have.
Thank him, wish him well and move along with your search.
