No matter what, ending a relationship is never a pleasant experience. You have to adjust to life without a familiar partner, you lose out on the good parts of a bad relationship, you can’t remember how to be single, etc. But sometimes a breakup is painful for another reason — you regret ever breaking up in the first place.

Here, 18 people talk about what it’s like to regret your breakup.
