Following on from the I have never...... thread, how about things that you either have done and never want to do again, or just don't want to do ever?

I don't intend to...

Fly anywhere ever again
Wear makeup again
Go to a bridal shop with a DD to look for a wedding dress (if they want to get married again in future, they can look for their own dresses!)

I never want to...

Have a tattoo
Watch a zombie film

Don't agree with no makeup and reluctant to fly but agree completely with the others!
I'd add - never ride a roller coaster, never try bungee jumping!

mcem, please feel free to fly anywhere while clarted with as much makeup as you like! These are purely personal and not intended to dictate to anyone - I'm with you on bungee jumping though, and the small experience i have with (tame) roller coasters would put them in the 'never again' group too.

Long time ago a horse loving friend of mine persuaded me to give it a go, oh good God it made me very aware of my where my inner thighs were located for at least a week afterwards shock I just couldn't tap into my inner John Wayne spending most of the ride in abject fear I was going to fall off, they're just too big a beast. Not that I don't appreciate their beauty, I just don't want to be on the back of one thank you!

Nothing really - whenever I say that, I seem to have done it by the end of the week!

M0nica Wed 17-Jul-19 11:33:02

I never say never. I have been caught out too many times.

midgey Wed 17-Jul-19 11:34:31

Never going to Alton Towers againenvy not envy!

Never giving birth again grin

No more long-haul flights.

No more fortunes spent on toys,etc. at Christmas to end up in the bin in the New Year. ( my GGC )

Would never have re-married ( 25yrs widowed ) nor look for a partner, as selfishly I wouldn't want to nurse anyone in later life.

midgey Wed 17-Jul-19 11:41:22

Nice one Sodapop!

Visit a theme park or water park.
Go shopping at the weekend.
Go jogging (have RA now).
Sunbathe in hot weather, can't stand the heat any more sad.

never ever get involved with a man again, am happy on my own

annep1 Wed 17-Jul-19 12:43:24

I will never sadly visit the US. Haven't the courage to fly so far.

Will never again go to a concert that is so loud I have to wear earplugs.

Will never eat snails.

KatyK Wed 17-Jul-19 15:30:02

Go to work.
