  • When I was your age (20), I spent a year driving 230 each way every weekend to see a girl, and then I moved there to be with her, even though there was hardly any work and I went deeply into debt to survive. Ultimately, I couldn't survive there, and had to move back to the Bay Area in order to get work. She moved with me, immediately got a good job, etc., but only stayed a month before she decided she couldn't handle living in the "big city", as she was from a tiny 1600-person town.

    I made huge sacrifices for her, and she wasn't really willing to do much for me in the long run.

  • going to my girlfriend's house for Thanksgiving instead of my own. I went to college in Minnesota with her and she lived in Wisconsin. So we drove to Wisconsin. I'm from Cali. We argued a lot so she would tell her family that I was the second coming of the third reich lol. They completely ignored me during dinner. My family is awesome. They wouldn't do that to her even if we were arguing all the time.

    The reason why I say this was a mistake was that we have only been dating for 6 months. Another big mistake was that she moved into my dorm at 4. I would say in a serious relationship or any really take it slow and really get to know them before you meet their family, move in, sex, etc.

  • Nothing comes to mind, but I know there's a list I've forgotten. I used to be a doormat, and based my self worth on having a boyfriend, so I would let them walk all over me, use, and abuse me.

    I guess the fact that I've forgotten is a good thing, since it's probably because I'm so happy now.

  • My boyfriend was starving himself because he couldn't afford to eat and I come from a moderately rich family so I can't taking him out for expensive meals because I've never had to worry about money. I thought I was helping him but when his pay cheque came in, he was determined to pay me almost every dime that I had spent on him. If I had known he planned on paying me back - I would have chosen cheaper foods to buy for him so he would have to pay me back less money then he felt compelled to do.

  • I woke every morning at 4am and made breakfast for my girlfriend and took her into work every day for over a year. One day I had to go to work way early for a special event and I woke her up and made breakfast but told her I couldn't take her in and she was pissed at me for a while. She wasn't dependant on me or anything and had her own car but because I did it all the time it grew into an expectation rather than something to spend a little extra time with her.

  • Devoting my life to her in very important years in my life 17-20. By this I mean working to pay for flights to visit her and spend on things for us but predominantly her. Neglecting my hobbies and passions because I felt guilty that I wasn't thinking of her and giving my undivided attention. You live and learn though so I suppose in the bigger picture it wouldn't be a regret, I just wouldn't do it again

  • Nothing. I do wish I had not done some stupid stuff I did to my ex's, but I know I can't change it. I only have one ex who hates me and I deserve it from her for what I did. I like to move forward knowing I won't make those same mistakes. I love all my ex's as friends who helped me figure myself out. And they seem to feel the same way about me. I hope.

  • Giving up on having children.
    Because upon breakup, it was a pure loss for me and I then realized how my ex bore no cost. So it's like I got to carry all the burden of an unfair arrangement.

  • A year ago, I went against my beliefs and became a Christian for my ex to try to please her. The experience was terrible. I do not mind Christians, or their religion. But the way my ex made it out to be was non-stop pressure. All I wanted to do was be happy with the person I was with. Instead, I was greeted with anxiety of whether or not I should show up to church the next day, knowing well that the only reason I was going was because of her. I lied to myself repeatedly, telling myself that "I am a Christian, I just didn't realize it." Or "This makes sense, it truly does!" It didn't, I couldn't grasp religion. All I could do was try to impress her. But in the end, I found out that the girl who pressured me to go into church and who was supposedly a "pure, full Christian" cheated on me in her bible camp. It was a true disappointment, but I still show respect to people who've adopted a religion, your beliefs are yours, not mine.

  • My entire relationship with my ex. While the relationship with my ex taught me valuable lessons, I regret quite a few things. I was assaulted at work and he could not care less. A friend of mine gave me the bitter that he didn't give a shit about me. I regret not breaking it off sooner, I regret doing 75% of the work, and I regret that I felt like I was practically begging for him to love me the way I loved him.

  • Not breaking up with him sooner because I knew he wouldn’t be able to cope when I left, even though I was miserable and woefully dissatisfied with the relationship.

  • I regret giving the guy the time of day. 😐 I was younger and stupid and didn't know the game of life. He was older and I didn't know that people played with the words "I love you" yet lol I thought they were still magical~

    • I also stayed awake from 1 am to 4 am although I had to get up at seven to wait until he got off of work.🙃 I wish I could go back and kick myself in the throat.

  • I don't really regret anything I've done for them. I know I did things for them out of the love I had for them. Despite how things ended, I don't regret it.

    • Girl. You shouldn't feel disgusted about that. You should be happy he takes pleasure in you. But you know, in the end it is your body your choice so don't let anyone make you do what you feel is wrong. But if he is great to you, there is nothing wrong with facesitting. You should relax and try to enjoy it and have fun. If it still feels wrong. Then stand your ground and say it is not something you feel comfortable doing any more you do you!

    • Facesitting is a gift.
      Embrace it babe it's amazing for the guy and the girl

  • Giving him power, to allowed him to make me change myself to be how he wants me to be
