    Nope. There were a few fights that made me wonder if we were still going to be together the next day after talking about why were had fought, but we always managed to work through them and have never broken up since getting together over 3 years ago. 

    Funny thing, but it is a huge peeve of mine when people tell me something like “we’ve been together for 3 (or however long) years so I feel like we should be engaged (or married) already” when really they dated for a few, broke up for many months (and saw other people) and then got back together. It’s like, no. You have been together since you got back together. It probably just bugs me so much cause I’ve never broken up with my SO and their comments are usually preceeded or followed by a judgement about how “soon” my DH and I got married.

    We have never broken up. Weve been steady together for the past 5 years. There have been moments where I was really scared that it was going to be it, but we always were able to resolve any problems.

    Ya lol a few months after we started dating we broke up for some stupid reason.  We were 22 then so I blame it on that haha  Everythings great now, 5 years later! Only one break up for a couple of days

    Nope never.  Have had a few major fights over stupid things but we have always been able to put them behind us and we’re about 7 days shy of 4 years together.

    Almost he freaked out 6 months into our relationship worried about getting married and that his feelings werent enough. I simply told him that though I want to get married that doesnt mean it has to be right now it has to be on our time line and if he spent too much time trying to read his feelings he’d miss them. I backed off from our relationship  forcing him to set up dates etc and he came around 8 months later he brought up the M word  :) .

    No. I’ve never gotten back together with a boyfriend after we broke up. I’m very much “you’re in or you’re out” kind of person. Once we break up, it’s done.

    No. Definately had tough times, but we’ve always worked through them.

    Never, and never even felt close to it. We have had times (like chances to move across country) where we had to decide how to adjust things or little disagreements but it has always still felt like we were in it together. Our relationship as always felt very secure that way.

    I have never been a “on and off” person though either. When there was a breakup in past relationships, even in a LTR, that was it. If we broke up there was good reason, even if that reaon was we weren’t very good at working through things without breaking up!

    I voted “other”….a couple times that we fought we came close enough for me to wonder if we’d be together the next morning – but we never actually really broke up. Sadly it was mostly about if we were ever going to get freaking married and guess who initiated those conversations most of the time.

    I came reeeally close to breaking up with him one time, but we worked everything out in the end.
