    bad timing, missed chance...Regrets?

    Has anyone ever met someone who they really liked, or even wasnt sure they liked them...Maybe hung out a few times, or dated briefly..The person was really into you, and yet you just werent ready for anything...Either because you werent over your ex, or werent ready for a relationship.......And does anyone regret missing out on trying with that person...Anyone ever contact that person afterwords and find it was too late, or possibly had a real chance to date again??? I'd like to know

    I've had people I regreted rejecting because I just wasnt ready to date and my mind was on someone else, and then years down the road I still wonder what if? I also am in the opposite situation where I think this person likes me, but is just not right timing as they are getting over their ex...I wonder if time will pass and they will regret it......

    ANy stories like this???

    Yes, yes, yes, YESYESYES, 1000 times yes. She was wonderful and I just didn't see it until it was too late. I am a sorry fool.

    WHat happened..what happened!!! Thats tough...Lionel...You are back with an ex you coulldnt get over when you were with the other girl, and now you miss the other girl? Maybe it is a case of wanting what you cant have? Or maybe you never should have gone back to your ex? So both who responded..Did you both break up or go your own ways and not see eachother and contact for awhile? When did you realize what you missed out on???? When did you start to regret it? did she try to be with you and pursue you, and you turn her down??? DId you date long? Sorry for all the questions...always seems like wrong timing ruines everything...Its more about our everchanging feelings and emotions..How can someone be so humg up on their ex and not see what is in front of them until it is too late???

    hmm...Makes me wonder if you just didnt want them when you could of had them, and then want them when you cant have them..Is that the case? O r do you really think it was bad timing, and things could have been really great if the feelings were mutual...Wondering how long it takes people to realize this..Probably after they are done pining after their ex....which means it would be a long enough time for him/her to move on...ANyone try to contact that person later and try again? Interesting only the males have answered this post for some reason..

    Nope - it happened to me too...

    He waited 1 1/2 yr and by the time I was starting to show interest... he vanished...

    I miss him and realize now how much I really wanted him and not my ex. How stupid could I have been?

    My telling him now how much I care for him is not changing anything... sad for me.

    Yeah it was just like that. I met her about a year ago and she was too young. I did not know this at the time since we talked about lots and lots of art history, so I assumed she was twenty at least. Wrong 17, so I back off 100%. She is a friend of my friends younger sister who would come by his studio every now and then. So my friends sister says she thinks im attractive, I thought, yeah 24, my own place, my own money, of course she is. Plus Im hung up on my ex at the time and dont want any type of blood sucking going on. I was wrong. She came back into the picture about three months ago and was pretty damn flirty.

    I liked it, but im honest when it comes to relationships. She is really sweet, and fun, but now Im back with my girl. I think the worst part is that she hangs out and is totally mature about it, outside of random flirting. It makes her soooooo hot. A few weeks ago her, myself, and another three friends; one girl two guys, are gonna go out. She for got her purse in my place, so I had to walk her back ALONE. I WAS SOOOOO NERVOUS. I hardly ever get nervous around girls, let alone an 18 yr old, but this one is different. Funny too since ive got her on myspace, and girls comment all the time and my g/f never bats an eyelid. But when this girl did she was like "Whos that, how do you know her?" I laughed at first and thought. "My g/f knows my type" I explained who she was and nothing eve came of it. Im still madly in love with lady. But the wondering kills me.

    wow...I know its strange to be on both sides of this....You cant blame yourself for wrong time..You were in a different place when you didnt want them...You were wounded and needed your ex to make it better...Not someone else..You cant see someone for who they are if you are too busy thinking of someone else...So cats meoww...Did it take a year and a half to get over your ex?? Ouch..or was it more like you were on and off dating him, while the other guy waited for you to decide? Were you friends while he waited...I just as rather not be friends with someone Im interested in, and move on and hope if they call Im still interested....
