Where are you Roffle? They've even got Oreos in the UK now, not Graham Crackers though that I know of.

I officially approve of S'mores as one of the best foods ever.

Actually, no. I thought like this, but then I actually told her. Thought I could handle rejection. I was wrong.

If I had waited a few months, I would have known she wasn't interested. I jumped the gun because I thought she was moving. She hasn't yet, so instead of ruining our friendship when I did, I could have waited longer.

When I had the ability, I really, really regret not just getting $1000 or so together and just driving. Picking a direction and going, no plan, just "I wonder what Memphis is like today... now I know... I wonder what Huston is like... how about Pueblo, Colorado? I'll go to Idaho next, maybe.. because what the hell's in Idaho anyway?"

Stupid me not doing that. Then again, I did play a lot of video games that month.


As a complete aside, I find it funny that had I found this thread at joining, this post would have been in the exact same place.

Back in High School I was hanging out with a friend at lunch, and he decided to bring along one of his friends. Turns out this friend of his is mind-bogglingly cute, incredibly smart, and overall just awesome. Instantly we hit it off and start talking all throughout lunch ignoring our mutual friend, it was amazing. A couple of days later she approaches me at my locker and asks me the seemingly innocent question "So is there anyone that you like?", unfortunately for me I was (and still am) insanely shy and introverted (especially on matters on deep personal feelings), and I froze only being able to produce a feeble "I don't know." I never got a chance to speak with her again. That was 6 years ago, I'm still single having never had a girlfriend, and I'm 22.

I've taken almost every chance to do almost anything offered to me since my early teens; consequently I've done a great many things; some of which have been monumentally stupid.

Moreover when I still lived at home my parents exerted extrordinary pressure on some of my relationships; I feel that not letting one particular relationship with a girl who was also a close friend fizzle out naturally, but bowing to the pressure to end it pushed me to continue a form of relationship with somone I care very dearly about which has become both extremely intimate and meaningful but in some important aspects horribly dysfunctional. I'm not sure I regret it in the least, because I love her to bits, but I could do without the hassle sometimes.

Funny, I think my take on this subject is "Shouldn't have talked to her." That would have avoided so many problems.

I regret a lot of things. One thing I regret(all the time) opting out of weight training at school. And not going to the gym. I really need to work on my upper body strength...

You are rather lucky if not going to the gym is your biggest regret.

Mine would have to be to do with a girl. We were best friends, and are still really close and I'm pretty much in love with her. I regret just not kissing her one time... Now, one moment seems perfect looking back on it, but at the time I was too shy... *sighs*

I've just gone through a similar experience, though for me I never got to tell her how I felt. That one always sucks.

Mine? Not having a fulfilling childhood. I sheltered and Isolated myself, and was at least mildly depressed the entire time.

Now, I don't have any fond memories of younger days. None at all. Hell, I barely remember them - I don't have any clear memories up until the start of high school. All those wasted years......

.....and somehow I feel too young to be saying that. Maybe It's cause I'm only 18. :?

My only real regret right now (at 16, I don't have that much to regret) is not going out and doing things with people I know. I want to be comfortable going to social occasions with friends and being able to talk to new people without effectively 'acting out' conversations.

I regret not moving out when I had the chance. I don't live close enough to uni to go out at night without having to come back really early and I feel like i'm missing a lot of the student experience.

You can always do it next year, or kip on someone's sofa.
