I wish I did not spend time on writing things like these, but I have to get this out of my system...

Last evening, while browsing through the clothes at my favourite boutique, I ran into my ex girlfriend. There is no bad blood between us and it was good to see her, but the experience was a trigger for my thoughts about my dating past. While I was at another boutique, I came across some t-shirts which had funny messages printed on them.  That brought to my mind the messages my girlfriend used to send me and I came up with some things I wish I had said, or not said, to exes, recent and from the distant past.

I wish I'd said less about your appearance, more about your ideas.

I wish I had said less about my exes - that was stupid. And a little mean.

I wish I'd said nicer things about your messages; they weren’t that bad.

I wish I'd never said "I love you" when we were drunk. You were right; I didn't mean it and it did not sound genuine.

I wish I'd said "I look ridiculous in these" when you told me to buy those yellow leather shoes. I did. I've worn them only once, and everybody thought I looked like an idiot.

I wish I'd said "no" when you asked for money. That was not the kind of help you needed.

I wish I’d been more straightforward about my pet allergy - I couldn't bare the sight of your pets every day we were together.

I wish I had told you why I was mad in some situations because your assumptions and the assumptions of your friends ruined my life.

I wish I hadn't said those hopeful things about us and the future while we were breaking up -that was pathetic.

I wish I'd said it over the phone - I thought you needed to hear it in person, but it was cruel to make you wait.

I wish I'd said less. I was worried you wouldn't think I was interesting.
