    No. I never regret anything. I take life as a learning experience and learn from my mistakes. Great question though.

    Yes, i have turned down offers of love proposal several times to well done men who were interested to be with me. These were the times when i was still 16 - 23 years old.

    I have not regret totally, but sometimes i think what if i had choosen one of those men, one i adore most. Would my life be happy having a family, satisfying living in luxury? more luxury as what i have now? although luxury is not really what i crave for, i have a bit of it now.

    No regrets. If you said, "No" there was a valid reason whether you were aware of it or not.

    The great thing about living on a planet with 6 Billion+ other people is the odds are in your favor that there is more than one person you could find happiness with.
    Regrets are for those who have a negative outlook for their future.
    The sun will come out tomorrow. It's been doing so for billions of years!

    I turned down a proposal for marriage when I was 18.  I was much too young to even understand who I was, how could I ever get married when I didn't have my college degree yet?  I used to think I regretted it, but I really don't.  I loved him, but we were just not meant to be, and I'm okay with that.

    I turned down a long distance relationship just because of the distance. One of my biggest mistakes.

    For the rest of my life? Maybe or maybe not, Haven't got to the end just yet.
    But there have been times when things in relationships didn't work out and I have wondered "What if ...?"

    But I think I am where I am now as a result of those decisions, whether for the better or for the worse. I am not sure.

    I will have to get back on that, when the rest of my life is done. smile
