Spinoff: How many guys have you dated?

dia99dia99 Posts: 1,998Registered Users
J'adore's comment about many of us having dated bisexual men and not knowing it (or mabye knowing it), made me think about the fact that I've only dated two guys in my entire life, and one of them is DaNa. I met DaNa mysecond year in college, and I didn't date in high school. I had the one boyfriend before him (freshman year and part of sophomore year) and then DaNa. I think meeting him and marrying young drove down my numbers (along with a really strict mom)!

Not counting someone you maybe went on one date with, how many people have you actually dated (and it doesn't have to be a sexual relaitonship)?

eta - that is supposed to be less than 3, but I messed that up.

    I have no idea. I was single 'til I was 30, then single again from 34-38, so needless to say I dated a lot of guys. I've only had 4 long-term relationships, though.

    Yeah, I don't have any idea either. I had someone ask me that trying to figure things out. If you mean actual *boyfriends* I would have a lower number, but spending months going out with a guy when possible who I never liked enough to consider a boyfriend, the guy should count for your poll, I think...

    Not sexual relationships.

    Actual boyfriends: Before my husband, I think I had 9 boyfriends.

    Had a few dates with more people than I can remember, but there are 2 that stick out in my mind as having had quite a few dates but never quite being as committed as boyfriend and girlfriend.

    Yeah, not just boyfriends, but actually dating enough that you would have said, "We're dating"...

    Too many to count. I started dating at age 12, got married at age 30, and never spent more than a few months solo.

    I am 26 and the guy I am dating now is my first and only guy I have ever dated...we've been dating exclusivly for a month...I am not sure if that counts as a boyfriend or not :? ...I would like for him to be my boyfriend.

    What about people with whom you had sexual relations, but you didn't exactly, um "date"?

    I guess I have "Seriously" dated 4 guys meaning I dated them for at least a year, and then dated about 3 others for a few months each...

    I voted 16-20 but I'm not sure really. I started "dating" if you want to call it that when I was 12 or 13. However, when you are that young, 2 weeks is a good run to have a boyfriend. Hee. I had my first serious relationship beginning at age 16. I have been in 4 serious relationships counting my existing one.

    I really have no idea. I'd have to go through all my old journals! Long-term relationships, only a handful. But more than one date, less than a few months, wow, a lot of guys. But for some reason we called it "seeing each other" or "hanging out." I had very few dates where the guy picks you up at your front door with flowers, etc... it was more like, let's meet at the bar or the park or the diner...

    I guess it depends on what is considered "dating". I don't know if I've ever dated, per se. I've never been asked out on a date, I don't think, because I pretty much was always in a serious relationship. Or maybe I was asked , but just don't remember. The men that I ended up having a serious relationship with were friends(or best friends) prior to deciding to make things serious. We always just "hung out". I never looked at it as dating, because before hand, there wasn't any romantic intentions. Not initially, anyway.

    Now, if you ask me how many relationships I've had, then I can tell you 4 since the age of 15. Each of the four ranged from 8 months(my very first boyfriend) to 5 years(with my current beau).

    I guess this means I've only dated four men.

    This sounds sort of right to me too, with different ages... but unlike PH, I have yet to meet my hubby.
