    It’s different for everyone! There is no set number. My husband has been my only boyfriend. I was a very picky person πŸ™‚

    I think it’s different for everyone. I had 2 boyfriends before my Fiance but I knew both of them weren’t serious- even though I was with each of them over a year or two. I was super young w/ both of them. I met my Fiance when I was a soph in college.

    I voted 2, but thats couting the relationships I had at 15 and 16, so….not really real. I don’t think its a mater of needing to dig through a certain number of people. I think its a question of compatibility and caring and commitment. There is no “one.”

    I just counted serious relationships which would be 3. Darling Husband would be 4.  i dated a few other people in there but nothing longer than a couple months and not to the point of it getting serious.

    I voted for 2 because Fiance is my 3rd boyfriend… or should I have voted for 3? I just ask because 0 isn’t an option and some people might be marrying their first boyfriend, so it took 0 other men… otherwise maybe I misunderstood and voted wrong, lol.

    I had two boyfriends before FI- both serious (2 years, then 1 year). One was when I was 14-16… I still think that counts. It was real and at the time I thought I would marry him so… I’m counting it. But it varies for everyone, so while some people date around a lot, some people don’t need to date much at all before finding the right one.

    In my younger years, I pretty much went from one relationship to the next… I had 4 fairly serious boyfriends in highschool and 4 after high school before I met Darling Husband.  I dated them all for more then 4-5 months.

    My SO has been my only serious Boyfriend or Best Friend, so I voted 1. We met when I just turned 17 πŸ™‚

    How do you definite date? Do you mean people you went on a few dates with, people you dated for at least one month or longer, people you were serious with? I think the results will be a bit distorted as most people would define dating differently. If your numbers stop at 15+ and your definition is anyone you went on 3 or 4 dates with then you won’t have an accurate picture as many of the brides on this board are in their 30s and I imagine have gone on a few dates with way more than 15 people in their entire lives.

    I voted for three, but all of them were high school boyfriends who I dated for less than three months each.  I dated Darling Husband in high school, too, but for two years.  After we broke up, I had a few more brief relationships (the longest was six months and was never really serious), but Darling Husband remained my only really serious one.

    I went on 1 or 2 dates with a couple people (but I don’t count those).  DH was the one and only boyfriend I ever had.

    I think 6 over 10 years.  They were mostly fairly long relationship, 2 shortest ones were 6 months, 2 for a year so, 1 for 6 years, and then my now husband. I dont consider the guys that I went on like a date or two that didnt amount to any sort of relationship.
