According to a research survey conducted by Neal Roese, professor of marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business, Women are more likely than man to have regrets about their romantic life. In the field of romantic relationships, everyone seems to have made decisions they had come to regret, says Neal Roese.
In the survey, about 370 adults across the US, between the ages of 20 and 80 years old, were asked to tell what they felt was some of the biggest issues in their past they regretted. The survey which was conducted over the phone concluded that about 44 percent of women listed romance, however only 19 percent of the men mentioned it, Roese said in the study published in journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. Much of the romantic regrets were about "the one that got away, a missed opportunity or someone you knew in college with whom it didn't quite work out," he said.
The second-most common regret centered on family issues, such as a desire to have been kinder to a loved one. Others regretted not attending college or not divorcing sooner, or choosing material items over a life's passion.
Roese said many of those who took part in the survey were eager to do so, and some even became tearful as they spoke.
This survey directly points out how women, are most effected by their past romance. Making them wish and wonder how they may have fixed the burned out flame “old romance”. Furthermore, it points out that we all have regrets whether it be romance or not attending college. I think the reason more women regret their past romance, is simply because of our society and the environment in which we live in.
Women are much more emotionally attached then men are, they care about finding the right person and if they fall short of this goal they will have regrets about it and long for it in the future, thinking they may have been better off with someone from a past relationship. When it comes to admitting regrets, romance happens to be the most common source of nagging anxiety, particularly among women, according to an American researcher.
