Things you missed out on/sacrificed?

What are the things you think you missed out on as a youngster/single person?

Im engaged with my first child on the way and we couldnt be happier,

but with the commitment comes sacrifices, im more than happy to make these sacrifices as I know I want to spend the rest of my life with my girl,

I made the most of my single days if you know what I mean so I have no regrets there but one thing that I regret/missed out on as a single bloke was a "proper lads holiday", I wished I had, had one of these before I settled down,

What are the things you think you missed out on as a youngster/single person?

Sleep, ****, work, gym, sleep !

    Well I spent my entire 20s in a relationship that was doomed... somewhat gutted about missing out on the fun I could have been having and the money I could have spent/saved on myself.

    Never been a big clubber or night owl and the lad holiday thing, well none of my mates have really been into that either. Certainly no regrets as I may not have what I have now had my life taken a different path

    As a youngster, probably chocolate/sweets, parents just couldn`t afford it, we were lucky if we got a bar between 3 of us a week lol.

    As a single person don`t feel like I missed out on anything, I`d done all the things most lads would want to do by the time I was 18/19.

    Sacrifices ? It never felt like that really, I was a stupid naive youngster when the first was born but adapted very quickly to my roles and responsibilities as a Dad, if anything it was the making of me, got me to pull my finger out with regards to many aspects of life.

    I didn't miss out on much when I was a child but I did sacrifice my brother to the moon gods.

    Ditto. Got out at 27. Promised myself to have a year or two shagging around and promptly got involved in another relationship.

    Thank god she seems to be the best thing ever to happen to me and a keeper. I really hope so, otherwise i'm gonna be totally gutted by missing the last few years of my 20s LOL

    So you didn't have any sex with stunning women when you were a teenager either, huh?

    What a lot have said already-missed some awsome holidays in my teens due to doomed relationships-and turned down a few ladies for the same reasons

    I'll cross that bridge after i've burned it.

    Seems I'm the other side of the coin, I'm coming up to 21, this friday actually, and have barely seen a night in since 16. Shagged around more than enough too.
    I wish i had not been (was not still) so wild. I could have gone to Oxford to do Physics, but got invoved with a girl during my A-Levels, went from AAAB in my AS-levels, to BBDD in the last year, did literaly no work, lost my oxford and Durham place. We broke up 2 years after, then started being a man slag again.
