Dear Poll: How Many Relationships Have You Been In?

You learn something new with every life experience, including relationships. That said, I certainly don’t think you need dozens of relationships to know a thing or two about how they work. Some people are daters, and some prefer monogamy, and of course there’s everyone in between too. So just for curiosity’s sake, tell me, how many actual relationships have you been in?

It depends on what you consider a "relationship". I personally dont think like little highschool bf's mean much.(Unless one of them was your first love and all that) I dont think just here and there bf's count either. A relationship (to me) means you shared something very special, and admired that person for whatever reason. So idk how it works for everyone else.

One serious relationship which is my current one (8 months and counting). I don't really count those in high school 'cos they never lasted more than a month. Dated a few guys after high school too but none was as serious as compared to my current boyfriend. :)

I've been in two relationships since highschool. I don't really count my HS relationship ... but maybe I should. It lasted 3 years, but it was off and on and very unstable; so on second thought ... I shouldn't! :)

looking back, i've been in 5 REAL relationships that i would really consider to be worthwhile, although i've dated quite a few others for decent periods of time. there are a lot of guys that i dated for 6+ months but i think that i knew in my heart that they weren't going to go anywhere, but that they were just fun so those i'm not considering to be actual ones.

I'm a "serial monogamist". First relationship was four years, then another was three, then one, then two. And I'm only 24! Ugh.

I've had four- which includes my husband. Two were in high school (one was 6 months, the other almost 2 years), one was in college (for over 2 years), and my husband (we've been married for almost 3 months).

I've been in 8-9 things I would call relationships. The shortest was 3 days and the longest so far was 3 or so years. I'm 24 though... I think this is OK?

4 relationships although none were REALLY long term but still constitute relationship status. 3 guys I dated but they fizzled. Needless to say, I've been completely single for 2 yrs but technically single for 4 yrs.
