Yea I am beyond shocked at my past dating exploits. I just look at them then and now and just say ‘um really? What the devil was I thinking?’

@Bunny_the_Bride:  Absolutely. I lived with a guy for 5 years who was really nothing more than a glorified friend with benefits. What is really sad is that I wanted to marry him! I thank God every day he didn’t want to! 

My husband is truely the love of my life.

I too am amazed at all the insane crap I’ve put up with from men over the years, so yes, I can relate. If I were older and wiser back then, there’s nooo way I would have put up with any of it. I guess those experiences have molded me into a gal that can’t be bothered to indulge childish/uncaring/demeaning behavior which is a good thing now, but I hate that I had to learn those lessons the hard way.

Although I am thankful to have dated a couple of very nice guys prior to meeting and marrying my DH, I also was in some relationships that were not at all good for me.  I was much younger and had a great deal to learn about life and relationships in those days.  However, I also realize that I likely would not have become the person I am today had I not had those negative experiences and learned those valuable lessons.

What I am extremely thankful for is that God and His guidelines protected me from making any serious, life-altering mistakes while I was in those relationships.

I only dated one guy prior to my husband, and quite frankly, the only reason we dated as long as we did was because I was too dense to realize he didn’t like me, and because he was the first guy to ask me out.  The first time he didn’t call me should have been my first hint, instead I drew the process out for a few months.

I’m not married yet, but I’m very thankful that I ended my previous five year relationship. I’m so much happier in my current relationship with my FI. I’m not sure I would have know my FI was the right one without experiencing some of the things that went wrong in my previous relationship though, and I’m grateful for every experience, good and bad, because I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am today without them.
