Mid and late teens, there were a couple of girls who liked me, good looking too. Deep down I think I knew, but didn t have the bottle to ask them out. A few years later, obviously too late friends and sister confirmed they did.
Anyway, a few years ago I was sat in a pub with a lad I drink with regularly and we are discussing “trivial regrets” from yesteryear and I told him about the good looking girls I had missed out on.
He looked at me and said, even if he had known girls had liked him, he d have only fucked it up, anyway.
I laughed and said, so would I.
