What’s the Biggest Regret of Your Life?

According to a new study, almost half of women still have deep, deep regrets about the One Who Got Away.  The study also found that men regret the one that got away . . . but their “one” is a high-paying job.

The study was done at Northwestern University.  Researchers surveyed 370 adults, ranging from 20 years old to 80, and asked them to list their biggest regrets.

The number one answer for women was ROMANCE.  44% of them said the biggest regret of their life was, quote, “the one who got away, a missed opportunity, or someone you knew [once] with whom it didn’t quite work out.”

That was more than double the amount of men who had a romantic regret . . . only 19% gave that as their number one answer.

Men were FAR more likely to regret something in their career.  35% of men said something work-related was their biggest regret, making it the number one answer. Less than a quarter of the women surveyed said that.

Family issues were the second-biggest regret for both genders.

The main family regrets were generally from people who were estranged from a family member . . . and in some cases didn’t get to apologize before that person passed away.

They haven’t released the specific order of the other regrets that got big chunks of votes, but they said those include not going to college, not getting divorced sooner, or choosing money over passion.
