  • My biggest mistake as a single guy was not walking through all those doors that women opened for me, instead of just a small fraction of them. As a young man I was good looking (6'1 blond hair, blue eyes, decent shape) and was getting hit on regularly. Some regular hits; some for sex straight up. But I wasn't very confident, and was moody at times. Sometimes I would turn down a guaranteed fuck to go skiing or to go to the bar with my friends.

    Now in a 36 year monogamous marriage I can see I must have been an idiot when single. What they say about life it is true; you don't regret the things you did, you regret not doing the things you could have.

    • So just like what you advice me? of taking the plunge?

    • I f I haven't been able to date or have a boyfriend or beign with guys, for more than 30 years and keep celibate all this time it was not because I have a internal problem it was due to lack if chances or opportunites that never presented to me

    • @kitty71 I'm sorry that opportunities have not come up. But there are more men than women in Costa Rica. Here's some good news in your age group from the Costa Rica Demographics Profile 2018: 25-54 years: (male 1,092,504/female 1,078,458). In your age group there are slightly more males than females. And when you consider you are both beautiful and intelligent, you definitely should have "chances and opportunities." So jump haha! Good luck! You're a cool person and wish you the best.

  • Being confused. Well it was my first relationship.
    I liked him. He was Catholic and I was not really focused on any religion but I was gonna be catholic for him but He broke up because he got upset over someone in his school that is a crack addict. She was very rude to me and she spread a whole rumor that I was Following him everywhere.
    That was such a crazy time. His brother also said I'm gonna be raped and he was around 13 probably 14 or 15 . Dang I can't really stop thinking about him because he was scares of his brother and everything.
    He didn't like that I was being confused about everything because his brother was messaging me and he didn't know until later.
    And his family wouldn't have wanted me to be with him :( I don't think.

    • how can you give it all online and you haven't even met this person in real life. you should try to have real interactions with females instead. i just don't undrestand people who fall for each other online, as much as i tried to be comprehensive i just couldn't.

    • @Janieyu you can't stop it , that is why the love is stupid

  • Spending too much time together. I would literally sleep over at her house every chance I had because she wanted me. But in the end, I didn't focus much on myself and she didn't want to work it out. So that's where it all ends.

  • Hmmm I've been with my hubby forever so I'm sure I've made plenty of mistakes that I can't even remember anymore 🤔 I would have to guess it would be not going to him first with my problems. When we were much younger I would go to my sister or friend first and it really upset him. Looking back now I can see why.

  • I don't wanna sound like a stuck up and arrogant bitch, but I don't think I've made too many big mistakes. The thing I've regretted the most is dancing kinda closely with a platonic male friend at a party. A picture was taken and sent to the guy I am involved with, and I've had to do a lot of explaining.

  • Back in college, a guy was chasing me when I was in a relationship. After his hard work for few days, I kinda started liking him.
    I didn’t cheat on my boyfriend, but I do feel bad every time I think about the moment I spent with that guy.

    • Cheer up. You don't have much to feel sorry for. And, you probably enjoyed the attention, no? You sound like a very loyal person.

    • I wouldn’t say no for the attention part.
      I think be loyal is the basic basic rule. Although the guy is sick like hell, still need to break up first to start another relationship. Isn’t it?

    • Yes, that's the honorable thing to do. You wouldn't want someone to lead you on while they were working on another relationship.

  • Toss up between breaking up with a really good guy because I was still hung up on my ex, and spending five years dating and living with a total douche who mooched off me and degraded me emotionally.
