It seems like every 20 something woman I meet has a past with a string of old boyfriends, partied and had fun in college, experimenting with different guys, etc. I was busy working and going to school during that time and didn't have much time for fun or to get crazy. I admit that kinda bothers me a little so maybe you ladies can set me straight. Are there women who don't really go through that phase or is this pretty much a rite of passage these days? Am I just looking in the wrong places or do I need to be more open minded?

I can't speak for other women, but personally I never went through a wild phase. I've always done things in moderation. That said, it does seem like there are a lot of people of both sexes who have increasingly gotten more wild in their 20s over the past 10-15 years or so. I would recommend that you research the places you are visiting before actually going there, so that you can kinda expect the types of clientele who might be there.

I went through a wild phase in high school. Got it out of the way early

You are indeed a very very 'moderated' lady.

I went through a wild phase. I stopped going to church for 6 months and started drinking Dr. Pepper. That's about as off track as I get!

OMG, you daredevil! What's so vicious about Dr. Pepper...? Or is it just about any soda?

It's caffeinated!

I never went through a wild phase, either. My parents were always pretty cool, so I didn't have much to rebel against.
