We all have moments when we think about a guy that was potentially 'the one that got away'.
It's that icky, I-was-so-into-you-but-inevitably-left-you-and-now-always-wonder-what-our-lives-would-be-like-together feeling.
And as it turns out, we aren't the only ones who ponder on the thought from time to time.
The answers that rolled in hit us right in the feels.
One guy missed the signs
"I didn't make a move despite her basically throwing herself at me." — Showmethebiggirls
Another took 'their one' for granted
"Indecision and unawareness to how much they actually meant to me." — Actionheroname
Petty arguments got in the way
"We got into an argument one night. Instead of talking it out, I just left." — Itsnotmyvanity
Worst. This guy chose the wrong girl.
"I dumped her for the one I should have let go away. The only relationship mistake I regret to this day." — 6-8_Yes_Size15
Someone couldn't say sorry
"By being too stubborn to apologise" — Driguess
Another had military training commitments
"Had to go back to north Carolina because I'm in the Marin Crops" — Dirtybrownwt
And one dude got dumped with no explanation whatsoever
"She just fuckin' left" — Yurfeetrslumpin
This lonely heart's thread really tugged at our heart strings, but lets be real, if neither party tried to salvage a good thing years ago, chances are the breakup was the best thing that could've happened, even if that 'best thing' hasn't happened just yet.
