Ummm less than 20… I think. Right around there somewhere. Never had a one night stand. I’m 35. I don’t want to know FI’s #. No one has asked me “my number” since like my late teens early 20’s. Do adults still ask eachother that?

Me: I think around 20. I don’t want to go back and count because I’ve tried to leave my past in my past, where it belongs..
Him: I think between 6-8.

Me: Around 20.
Him: I don’t know, and I don’t care.

Mine is 10. I’ve never asked husband, and he’s never asked me. Going on 10 years in November. It’s just something I’ve asked in the past with exes that I’ve mulled over, and it would bother me more than I’d like to admit. So it’s not a can of worms I’ve ever opened with him. My guess is his is much higher than mine, he’s a bit older and dated quite a bit. I know all about his serious relationships, but have never cared to inquire too much about his non-serious romps.

Mine is 1, consensually. FI’s is maybe 20? He’s a people person and conventionally attractive. I swear legs just fell open in front of him in high school.
(We used to just be friends in high school. I got to hear aaaallll the stories, lucky me)

me: 3 (all long term relationships)
him: high, lol
Apart from a quick get to know each other chat at the begining of our relationship, it’s irrelevant 🤷🏼♀️

Enough to know what we’re doing. Enough to never ever tell one another the actual # because it is irrelevant. Probably enough to not be exactly sure what the actual # is because its not some kind of competition. We are older, we lived a lot of life before we met each other.

If we’re strictly counting p in v esx, mine is 9. Fiance is the lucky 9th. Looks like I won’t be going into double digits!
No clue what FI’s number is. Guessing it’s higher than mine as he’s older (I’m 31, he’s 35) and dated his fair share of ladies before me. But we’ve never discussed our numbers so who knows. Not really information that I feel a need or desire to know.

8. Im almost 32. Fiance is almost 40 y.o. and I do not want to know his numner.

Amen. And the people posting here the caveats that all the partners were LTRs or other qualifiers… A person’s “number” doesn’t define them, doesn’t make someone a good or a bad person, and a higher or lower number doesn’t make someone better or worse than anyone else. Until we get away from the subtle shaming in these numbers, there will never be equality.
My number? Enough to know better than to talk about numbers.
DH’s number? Secure adults don’t ask one another these questions.

After reading all of your responses, I think it’s safe to say that my number is higher than most of those (I was single for most of my twenties, after all). Fiance and I have never had the numbers conversation, but it’s a pretty fair bet that his is lower, as he was with his ex wife for 18 years from the time he was 19 and was only single for a year before the two of us met. It’s honestly not something I ever think about anymore. I loved being single and had a blast, but it’s a pain of my past and my only concern now is the life that I have now.

Me: 50-something…I can’t remember exactly
Fortunately, Fiance isn’t even slightly bothered by my colorful past.

I don’t even know my number at this point.. not that it’s super high. It’s just never been relevant to keep track of.

My number is 3, including my Fiance, and FI’s number is 2 including me. Neither of us care and I personally don’t think anyone should be judged by the number of people the have sex with. As long as it was consensual (and safe) sex between willing partners, who am I to judge how many people that occurred with? Sure it’s a romantic notion to be someone’s first everything, but if you’re over the age of about 17 that’s just not likely 😉
