to virginity.

I have lost my virginity.
{Lost.
To be unsuccessful in retaining possession of; mislay
To be unable to keep control or allegiance of
To consume aimlessly; waste}
Though I lost it some time ago, it is just now that I have started to miss it.
I looked under the bed. In the closet. In the top drawer under the socks.
I looked in London and Paris and Hong Kong again.
I’ve lost it.
You see, I didn’t appreciate it much when it was around, but I have a newfound respect for it and would like to see it returned to me.

It's better to regret something you did than to regret something you didn't do.

I notice you didn't think to look in Creswell. Because, honestly, London, Paris, and Hong Kong are sooo much better than Creswell.

Is your name Plato? Are you a philosopher? Your quote applies to this entry almost as well as dog feces applies to linoleum floors. The writer here is showing regret in something she DIDN'T do-retain her virginity/appreciate it while she had possession of it. No more half-assed pseudo-philosophy from you, please.
