Why do you feel if you met later in life you would have gone further than what you did? Truth is we all have a journey and in that journey you will have regrets per say, slips, trips, and falls. The most important factor is what did you learn from this experience and can you make the next relationship better than what the regret was? It was not meant for you two to be together no matter how you try to sugar coat it all good things come to an end and some good things aren't meant to be. Later in life when you find that one or that one finds you; you won't even second guess or think twice about how far you and your ex would have went. Take it for what it is worth and move forward. Nothing in life is free Take care
I am a very deep individual VERY deep ;-) K-I-R
I agree with originnone that earlier would have changed things.
No, but I have wished the timing had been different.
It's the opposite for me. I met my last boyfriend - by far the kindest and sweetest boyfriend I have ever had - about 2 months before my life became a living hell and I dealt with it by treating him like garbage. I always tell him (we are still friends) I wish he had been known me before things changed because I was so different before. He deserved the kind of girlfriend I have been to guys who cheated on me and beat me up. I spoiled them and gave them 100%. He should have had that. I gave him nothing and I will always regret that.
Whenever I meet people I like, I always wish I had met them earlier, when I didn't have baggage yet.
Oh, yes, when I think of how nice everyone was to me when I was young, I can't believe how I took it for granted. People drove me everywhere, invited me everywhere, and I just vamped around, thinking it was going to be like that forever.
