week seven: mistakes*

43/365. Leo H. (2002)
Met at a party, said you liked my hair. Went outside to your truck and played guitar. Years later, I'm glad I was smart.

44/365. Eric Mc. (1998-2003)
Said you loved me in my scrubs - we were on-and-off for years. I came home for break, found out you'd been engaged all along.

45/365. Tommy R. (2006-2007)
Most beautiful man I've ever been with. We had fun, but you weren't very good for me. Then you played me for Angelina Jolie.

46/365. Lawrence U. (2005)
One misguided date, months of emailing out of obligation. We weren't right - not even as friends. Should have stopped it when we were civil.

47/365. David G. (2002)
She thought we'd work because we're both singers, but she couldn't have been more wrong. Wish I never gave you the time of day.

48/365. Marc M. (2006)
We fell fast, heavy - I secretly believe we were perfect together. Still don't know what made you quit me, but you shattered my heart.

49/365. Dante D. (2003)
Random hookup at a party - you were my biggest regret for a long time. Had to ask your roommate your name the next day.

There is no such thing as a sexual mistake. The most embarrassing hookups make the best stories for drunk times with your closest girlfriends. :)

THEIR loss, their mistake.

Hey, whatever happened with the whistling guy?

Becky, I totally believe in sexual mistakes. Nothing to be embarrassed of, but definitely something to learn from.

On a related note, I don't understand why it's not PC to talk about mistakes and regrets. We're all human, and we all mess up. We all know that we could've handled certain situations better. Why is it bad to acknowledge that? Of course our experiences make us who we are, but that doesn't mean we can't reflect on what it takes to be a better person.
