    I don’t know for sure, but I said 3-5. By I don’t know, I mean I “dated” people for a couple of weeks or whatever, so I guess that counts, but I only had 1 serious relationship before FI!

    Had several serious relationships; the HS-freshman in college long distance thing- 16 mos, a college bf – 3 years, then a post-grad, 16 mos relationship before I met my hubs; we were engaged within dating 8 mos but we just knew!  I never believed in it, but it’s true – that feeling…

    I didn’t make a selection because I was actually dating NOT to find the one. I never had marriage and family as a goal in life. I had my daughter but it wasn’t exactly planned =) I had pretty much settled into a good life with myself and my daughter by age 25. I had my child, my career, my own home, my dog and had no desire to meet “the one”. If a guy expressed interest in something more than companionship, I kept it moving. I met my Fiance a few weeks before my 31st b-day (I am 34 now) and right from the first I knew he was different. He made me nervous b/c instinctively I knew he had the power to change my well-ordered life…LOL. He chased me…and I ran slow so he could eventually catch me…LOL….and the rest is history =)

    1st = hs bf dated for a year

    2nd = hs sweetheart dated for 5 years (senior year of hs through 1st year of law school)

    3rd = fi

    I was on the dating scene when I was 18 and then I had two serious relationships 2 years plus, before meeting FH now its more than 2 years of being with him. Both other relationships I wasnt prepared to get married, the timing was not right. the second long relationship, could have been the one, there was never arguements and I really did love him, he just wasnt prepared to wait another year. which is fair enough. But since meeting my FH I realised.. that he is the one that im meant to grow old with, and he makes me the better person and always encouraging me. Many of the reasons why I love him so and cant wait to be his wifey 🙂

    I dated a LOT of guys in high school. I was a bit of a man eater. If I had met my Fiance in high school, there is no way we’d be together now. I always found something wrong with the guys in high school. A few months here and there and then chew them up and spit them out.

    Fiance was my third serious relationship. I dated one guy seriously from high school after graduation – got cheated on. The second guy, I dated after college but he was still going to school and wanted his own life out of state after he graduated – no harm, but not for each other. Then I met my Fiance. He’s absolutely perfect for me, would never cheat and is not going anywhere.

    Well I have dated several guys in the past, but never had anything serious with them.  Only had two serious relationships, the SO being number two.

    More than 25, but that’s just dating. I was good at picking winners. (Aka not winners).

    I had only one serious relationship, but did kiss a lot of frogs before finding my hubby. Good thing it only took kissing to realize they weren’t worth it! 🙂

    I chose 16-20. It’s probably more, but that’s a rough estimate. I casually dated plenty of men. Hey, I’ll be 29 in 2 months.LOL

    Papa Bear is my 1st and only serious relationship.Smile

    he’s the first and only.  i’d have “dates” to the school dance and stuff like that in high school but it was always an “as friends” kind of thing.  started dating 1st year of college until now, 6 years later.
