Serious relationships - Six, and I would include my current one even though it's only been a little over three months. I couldn't tell how many dates I've been on. Probably around 100 or so.

1. High school boyfriend for 2 years
2. Current relationship for 18 years and counting

Interspersed amongst them were probably 3 or 4 casual boyfriends

I did date one man recently for about 8-9 months. But we never actually said we were in a committed relationship or anything. In fact, it was when I asked him if he considered us boyfriend/girlfriend (we'd been dating exclusively) that he kind of flaked out on me and broke up with me. But we are still close friends.
Wow God bless you.

I've been on about a half-dozen dates. A few were even with the same person. But, I've never been in a serious relationship.

from 1997-2004 I spent most of my time traveling and living in 7 different countries and sleeping with over 200 women. As 1 of US Marines in country, tail seemed to come flying. I basically had to tell them what they wanted to hear and split town when my time was up.

But really only 3 serious GFs.

The US is such a buzz kill with all this getting to know each other crap..

Omg... I am doomed to be alone forever. I stopped counting at 9 serious relationships. Like relationships that lasted a year or longer. Sadly, the most recent relationships have been the worst. I found better guys when I was a teen.

I have dated (one date or more) at least 150 guys over the last 20 years. I met 32 between August and November of last year. I quit dating in December and have turned a few guys down.

Hmmm . . .

HS- 1 for ~2yrs (mutual break up due to me being a crazy adolescent B)
College- 1 for ~3 years (dumped him for being a D)
Grad Sch- lived w 1 for ~4years (mutual break up)
*Early career- 1 for ~2yrs (*we broke up because i wanted to eat cookies before he cooked dinner, best break up story ever! )
Ex Husband- dated and married ~7yrs (mutual break up)


So about 5 so far. Not counting anyone who was casual/non-commitment dating or anyone i dated for under a year.
