I can't stand to listen to Adele because she's always singing about the past and what ifs. It's level 10 cringe for me. Whenever I think about my exes, I don't think "What if?" I think "Praise little baby Jesus they're in my past!"

In response to a confession. Wow, you really really really don't like it when someone questions you in any way shape or form, do you? You're so used to everyone kissing your butt that you can't handle being second guessed.

Just to catch everyone on the night crew up to speed about the disasters below. I commented that I thought people entertaining "what ifs" about exes was a little cringey and gross and I wasn't sure why I felt that way. I was called weird and asked to attempt to reason that feeling. I said MAYBE because it was a display of discontent, even though people that do the "what iffing" would claim to feel content when doing so. This upset people and we went back and forth on this, and I said that you could "what if" multiple ways, but "what iffing" for someone better in a relationship , could not also mean you were 100% content. This is still the point of contention that leads to things like, " I think what if I had fish for dinner, and I'm content, got ya archer". So that's that, it's disappointing that I couldn't have just had an unpopular opinion, but it's been interesting, and I'm not upset with anyone, I still think most here are alright humans. Cheers.

"What if?" is so completely normal. Everything in life has this aspect. What if I ordered the fish? What if I picked the other paint color? What if I bought the other coat? Jesus. It's normal. What if you married your HS sweetheart? Yeah, what if? So what?

I'm in a happy marriage and have been for quite a while, but I still think what-if sometimes. Mostly its just me wondering how different my life would have turned out, the different paths I would have taken. Not that it would have been any better nor any worse...just different from what it's like today.

I think you can be 100% content and/or satisfied in a current relationship and still wonder "what if". It doesn't have to mean you want the previous person back or that you are pining away for them or unconsciously unhappy, ffs!

Im not really a fan of either of their music, but I think Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are the cutest couple. I don't know why, I'm not usually into celebs and their dating lives, but I love these two together!

Why do "what if" relationships gross you out? That seems weird. Many people have past relationships without the closure they needed or maybe the relationship ended due to reasons out of their control (young and parents forbade it, one person moved away, joined the military, etc). And some people are just nostalgic and like reminiscing about the past. Nothing weird or cringey about that, imo.

Came across my hs sweetheart on fb. Haven't seen or heard from him in probably 15 years, he lives across the country. We dated about 7 years. I'm happily married but seeing a current pic of him for the first time made my stomach do the same flip-flop that it used to do every time I saw him. He was my first love and I still do think of him a lot. I would never jeopordize my marriage but sometimes I wish it would have worked out between us...and to make matters worse he told a mutual friend recently that I was always the one that got away.

In response to a confession. Unless you sign in, it's not guaranteed to show up right away. I recently saw a post of mine that I had written months ago. I'd forgotten I'd written it and was nodding my head in agreement until I realized it was mine, lol.
