The Top Relationship Regrets

Your Rachel McAdams prayers have been answered: Although the actress has been out of the limelight recently, she’s back in a new movie called About Time with co-star Domhnall Gleeson. The premise? After several failed attempts at wooing Mary (McAdams), Tim (Gleeson) discovers he can travel through time—so decides to use this power to redo those uncomfortable encounters and get his dream girl to fall for him.

The plot got us thinking: Who doesn’t wish they could go back and change an awkward hookup or an embarrassing tongue slip? So we asked readers to share the top relationship moments they wish they could go back and do differently. Here’s what they had to say:

Happily Ever After
“I’d redo our wedding kiss. During our ceremony, he put my ring on the wrong hand, and the entire venue started laughing—including us. Our kiss was lost in the hilarious moment, so I wish we could have savored it and made it more special.” —Anonymous

Poking Fun
“I’d change the first time my boyfriend and I had sex. Without thinking, I asked him if it was in yet. I totally wasn’t making fun of his size (I was just so excited to get busy!) but it clearly upset him. We’re close to our five-year anniversary—so the incident definitely wasn’t a deal-breaker—but I still think I should’ve kept my mouth shut back then.” —Anonymous

Slurred Lines
“I swear I’m not a huge drinker, but the first time I was meeting my fiancé’s parents, I needed a drink to calm my nerves. Well, that one drink turned into two, and I ended up slurring my words as I greeted them. It wasn’t exactly the best first impression I could have made on my future in-laws.” —Anonymous
