Long ago, in galaxy far far away. My first big crush Jan, wanted to be intimate. I, being the complete fool I was at the time, wanted to wait until marriage. Long story short, we split up, and married others and eventually I got word that she passed away.
Now that it doesn’t matter, I have been with lot’s of women, and I love my wife, but I truly regret turning Jan away. I think of her often, and I think we could have been wonderful together. Perhaps she was the one for me. If I had one regret in my life, that’s it.
You can never go back, but if I could, I surely would.

Never walked into that classroom and saw *the* ex g/f in Junior High.

My life wouldn't (still) be absolute hell. Look thru past posts for a general idea.

I had just graduated from the 8th grade, got a letter from the private high school to which I had been accepted asking me whether I wanted to take advanced mathematics courses or just the standard courses.

I had received straight “A”’s throughout elementary school and I was tired of the work.

Like a fool, I chose to take the standard courses.

To this day, I wonder what I could have become had I made a different choice.

Sometimes, I even wonder if I would still be alive if I had followed the “expected” course.

Mine is just kind of a dumb one, but here goes...

I was a senior in HS and was informed by a friend that the absolute hottest girl in our school wanted to date me. This was a real stunner for me, why she wanted to go out with me I'll never know. We eventually got together and started dating, and oh boy was she HOT! I'm talking like heat just radiated off of this gal. She was full-on Mormon though, so I played it cool. Spent many a night making out with her, but never really going much further than this. (boy-o-boy I wanted to though!!!)

She kind of drifted away and we eventually stopped dating. I was just love struck by this girl and thought about her all the time. I was kind of torn though because I had no intention of converting to be Mormon (though she never tried to make me). Still, I thought of her for many years.

Fast forward to our 10 year Class Reunion and she's just as hot as she ever was. Shortly afterwards I find out the reason she drifted away was because I DIDN'T go all the way with her! Really? Like, REALLY????? DAMMIT!!! Just DAMMIT!!

Here I was trying to be Mr. Nice-guy, goody two shoes and that was the exact opposite of what she wanted! By the time I found out she was already married, had two kids and another on the way.

I still kick myself almost 40 years later over that one. What a bonehead move.

Women, the most beguiling creatures on this planet!

ETA...And, if that wasn't bad enough, when I found this out I also found out that the reason she had broken up with her previous b/f was because he made the exact same mistake!! Gawd, if I'd only known!

My post will likely not be as light hearted as I think you were looking for but, perhaps it will help me to 'get it off of my chest'.

If I could go back I would not have waited as long as I did to seek emergency treatment for my Mother. She was in a skilled nursing facility and I only trusted them to an extent and even though I kept a watchful eye on her (or so I thought) for those two weeks, it wasn't nearly enough. Her downfall was swift and brutally final and I just can't seem to alleviate the guilt so I suppose it is my new cross to bear.
I've heard all of the platitudes about doing what I could and her living a long life and etc etc. It doesn't change the fact that I will always believe that my inaction may have led to her suffering and eventual untimely death.
So, I would change that, if I could.

That OK...writing it own helps. I went through a similar situation with my mother, but the hospital kept feeding us with false hopes that she might survive her stroke. They basically milked her insurance dry, then tossed her in a hospice where we finally had to demand they turn the machines off. She never had a chance from day 1, and I knew it, but I wasn't aggressive or knowledgeable enough to ask the right questions. It was 6 weeks of waiting.

We can only speculate about an alternate outcome though, and the thought that it MIGHT have turned out different. I mean Screadto sleep might have been walking into a trap with those to girls!!!!

Whenever we went to Red Flag in Vegas, a couple of the fellas would head up to the border on the weekend as, allegedly, there were some hot spots where Mormon girls would cross over to go buy booze. I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of such a town.

I was asleep when my dog passed.
He was in the room with me.
All I had to do was hold him and pray.
