New survey reveals British men's biggest regrets
A survey of British men and women has revealed the most common regrets Brits have from their youth.
Participants - who were all aged 26 or older - were asked to look back at their lives between the ages of 18 and 25 and determine their biggest regret from this time.
Almost one third of men (32%) said they regretted getting a tattoo while 28% of women identified a one-night stand as the thing they wish they could change, following a survey conducted by vouchercloud.com.
Of the men who said they regretted a tattoo, 24% described their embarrassing ink as 'tribal' while 23% had unsurprisingly developed second thoughts about one they had gotten as a joke.
Almost a quarter of men (24%) said they regretted previous drug use, while 31% admitted feeling guilty over things they had done when drunk.
Only one regret popped up in both groups, as 12% of men and 18% of women felt that they had a child before they were ready.
The top 5 for men was:
- Having a tattoo done - 32%
- Behaviour whilst under the influence of alcohol - 31%
- Drug use - 24%
- Sustaining sporting injuries - 16%
- Having children too young / before I was ready - 12%
While the top 5 regrets for women were:
- Sexual encounters and/or one-night stands - 28%
- Not learning to drive – 25%
- Broken friendships - 23%
- Having children too young / before I was ready - 18%
- Having a tattoo done - 14%
