I know romance movies rarely resemble real life, and playing the "What If" game is fruitless. But I've always been curious about romantic regret, especially with my Fuck You I'm Walking Out and We Shall Never Speak Again approach.

But now that I'm seeing this play out with a friend, I'm curious about the GT crowd. Did any of you have similar experiences and/or regrets when you walked away abruptly? How did you deal with it? Did you go back and give that person a second chance? If not, did you ever regret not doing so when the drama died down? Did the other person ever try to get back in contact? Did you feel like shit if s/he didn't? Are these plenty of questions?

I'm running out of advice.
