oooh great topic.  Before meeting Mr.Esq, I was in two very serious relationships, 2 less serious, but monogomous and long term, relationships and then there was a whole bunch of guys I dated anywhere from a few dates to a few months, (but nothing serious or committed).

Two other serious relationships and a few other not so serious… I guess I had to kiss a few frogs to meet Mr RIght! 🙂

I didn’t date a lot. I guess there were a lot of guys that only lasted through "talking" and a few dates to figure we weren’t right for each other. I had one on-again, off-again relationship with a man who loved me a lot, but we were better off as friends. Although I hadn’t dated a lot, I had seen enough to know my FH was a keeper within a few months.

only one serious relationship and one casual shorter one.  I’m so glad to have dated so little!  In my opinion it keeps the slate much cleaner and it’s a less dramatic and less baggage-filled marriage.

I was engaged previously before meeting Mr. Calioc.  I’ve been in 3 relationships that lasted about 1 1/2 years each, and at least 10 that were between 3 months and 6 months.  That said, I’m not the youngest bride on here at 35yrs. 

I’m glad I got all the dating and craziness out of my system before meeting my husband.  I was never ready to settle down before and I’ve had so many wonderful experiences.  Luckily, Mr. Calioc has had similar experiences as mine.

Before meeting myMr, I was in one serious relationship for a little over two years. There were a few little ones here and there but nothing serious. Then I met my man, and we INSTANTLY fell in love. We were engaged 8 months into our relationship. Now, we have been together for two years and fall in love more and more every single day! 🙂

I’ve only been to the "I love you" phase with 3 guys before my fiance…a couple other close ones, but most of my longer relationships had a long distance element, and luckily this one has all been in the same city..got engaged on our 2 year anniversary (friends before that)

Just one other before my hubs and it lasted for about a 1 1/2 years while I was in high school.  I’ve done very very casual dating, but I found my man and just aobut 6 years later I couldn’t be happier with who I ended up with.  I’m glad our history is similar because it brings us with not too much baggage, but just enough to have gotten life experiences we both needed.

I had a few other relationships… a couple that were 3 years in length, even.  But looking back on how I felt in those relationships and what I feel with Mr. Doctor, I see that though I spent a significant amount of time dating those people, it definitely wasn’t "serious". 

There may have been some intense feelings and quantity of time spent, but if I had to be really honest, I don’t even know if they were truly love.  I guess I never understood how fabulous a relationship could be, so I had no idea what I was missing.  I kept trying to make a pretty good thing into something more… but then he cam along and showed me what real love can transform your life into.

I really do feel like the luckiest girl!

My only serious Boyfriend or Best Friend was my Fiance.  I had dated another guy on and off for about a year and a half, and had a few dates otherwise, but I never really wanted to date around.  It just wasn’t for me. Looking back it might have been more fun than I thought to date around, but we have been together for about 9 years, and I wouldn’t want to change that for a few more toads.

My only serious Boyfriend or Best Friend was my Fiance.  I had dated another guy on and off for a year and a half or so, and I had 1 other fling, but they just didn’t stick.  I never wanted to date  around.  I was always looking for something long term and I finally found it with my Fiance.

This is a good topic! I had the infamous "high school" relationship. Lasted 3 years; can’t really say I saw it going anywhere though. I had a serious relationship that lasted 3.5 years (on and off) and many mini relationships (3-6 mths at a time) and dated a lot before meeting Mr. Sushi. I definitely got my dating crap out of the way. No regrets and no looking back.

Mr. Sushi had a casual high school hook-up and one serious relationship before me (his baby’s mama) and that’s pretty much it. He was the typical player, casually dating lots of gals at the same time.
