She made me feel smarter than the other guys in the room, and better looking…confident. It was a wonderful life for a long time, but like all good things, it had to end. Regrets? I have none. Too many people dwell on what ifs. Don’t confuse regret with disappointment. I am what I am, and I’ll always be.
