Dear Friend, I don’t have too many major regrets in my life but of the few that I have, yours pops into my head most often, and the feeling is so bitter-sweet. One night you drove me home from the party, we were parked outside my apartment. And we were joking and laughing. Somewhere in there, I don’t even remember how, you slipped in “we could go out” comment and I was so surprised and shocked and I couldn’t believe it so I laughed it off. And we just kept talking and never mentioned it again. I still regret it. Not often. Not every day but I do wonder how my life would’ve been if I had not been so scared. You see until that point, I had maybe been on three dates in my whole life. You didn’t know that no one did. But I seriously didn’t ever know how to act. Your Friend From Long Ago.
