Dear Poll: How Many First Dates Did You Go on This Year?

Dating can he extremely tiring, especially if you're looking for a husband. Charlotte from Sex and the City said it best: "I've been dating since I was 15, I'm exhausted, where is he??"

Some women are lucky enough to find the one on their first or second try, but for others, it can feel like a lifetime to meet that special someone. To all you single ladies out there who are still searching, what I want to know is: How many first dates have you been on this year?

I decided to join a dating service this year for hipsters in my area because I'm 32 and not getting any younger and I wanted to meet somebody!!! I went on 17 first dates total. It's not as fun as it sounds. I actually feel lonelier this year than I did last year when I went on just 2 first dates. Oh well, I tried.

Well my relationship of 2 years ended, then a few months later I went on about 4 first dates. Hopefully this one in particular will lead to many more dates and fewer other first dates. ;-)

Only 3. The first one was bad, the second one I ended up being with for a lot of the year, and the third was the guy I've been seeing for the past few weeks.

Zero! Me and my fiance have been together for a year and 3 months. Took me so long to find him! "A girl will sometimes go through many frogs before she finds her prince" That saying is what kept me going until I got him

I so related to that Charlotte quote a few years ago...I was so tired of crappy and/or failed relationships and just didn't want to settle. But now I'm happily married, so he's the only one I've "dated" this year!
