I was chatting with my brother yesterday, and he mentioned a friend that’s been in two very long term relationships back to back — he’d never really dated anyone else. My brother couldn’t imagine what it’d be like to have dated so little!
I was in one very long term relationship before meeting Mr. Bee, and other than that, I didn’t date very much.
What about you? How many serious relationships were you in before meeting your Mr. Bee?

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.

Honestly me and the Mista has been together for 11 yrs and this is the only serious relationship I’ve had and I wouldn’t change it for the world!!

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.
