Poll: How many relationships have you been in?

Only had one so far. A friend hooked us up. Fell fast and hard for each other. Moved to fast ended after a month. Was great while it lasted. Oh and a month after dumping me she was dating/moving in with a 15 year old kid and his parents. The were engaged to each other after like 3 months. She ended it after like 6-7 months. Oh did I mention that she was 23? Yea. I personally learned the whole "Don't stick it in Crazy" shit. I got lucky this time. XD

Yeah, I'm not good at relationships. I'm 21 I've had 4 relationships make it to the 4 month mark and that's my longest. I tend to avoid going in for a commitment.

0. I'm not actively seeking a relationship but I hate the idea of "my porn doesn't judge" or whatever, if the situation arose I'd go for one but in the meantime I'm fine as is.

1 and knowing my luck probably the last.

I'm 25 and have been in 7 relationships, in addition to a long-term friendship that included sex. And a different one that was shorter-term. (Shortest official relationship was 2 months, longest was 3 years.)

Not planning on getting into another one for a while, though. Not until I'm sure it's the right one.

(Captcha: "Chuck norris." Oh God, when will he go away.)

I've had Six serious relationships, (still in the sixth) and though I cannot say that none of them had terrible moments, I still love and are friends with most of them. They've all taught me something about myself and life, good and bad, and I wouldn't change or erase any of them. My boyfriend now has been my best friend for 10 years now and given my experience and prior relationships it's given me a basis for the most natural and amazing relationship I've ever had and still have.

Best friend for 10 years before becoming your boyfriend? or counting the time he has been your boyfriend? or some third option I haven't thought of?

Either way this seems to give credence to the friends before relationship thing.

10 years before we got together and I think I may have been the only one to have been surprised. It's a very abstract and fulfilling relationship based on honesty (brutal or otherwise), love and understanding. I still consider him my best friend now as well.

I've been in 3, 2 serious ones. I'm actually planning on asking this girl out on a date tomorrow, so hopefully something will come of it :D. Too many one night stands/flings for me, I've calmed down

It seems in the friend-to-relationship transition there is always one who is suprised by it all (assuming that's what you meant)

All the 0's make me sad :(

I'm pretty surprised as well. 1/3 of the demographic is pretty substantial. I guess the stereotype is true in this case.

Twice with the same person. We were good friends for a while (that's sort of my policy now, be good friends with someone for a while to keep from accidentally dating because of novelty) and our first break up was very clean, went at it again a year or two later, and then we broke up because "she didn't want the drama to ruin our friendship" (see- she's one of those people who dates because of novelty and there were too many new people). Then she moved and I learned from the experience and it was fun while it lasted, but I'm glad that phase of my life is over. It was a pretty bad one outside of the company.

And if we ever see each other again, now we'll both be of legal age, and since there are bound to be some feelings left...

Technically I've been in 4 but I only count 2. The first two were just being overly flirty with a friend and they didn't last more than a week or two.

17 and been in one, last one ended awfully. It's a pain that I still need to see her face everyday at school...
Think I shall wait a while before starting up my next one

I'm 18 and I'd say 3, my first one in year 6 didn't really count. Currently in a 9 month old relationship and it's going fairly well.

One and that only one was a BIG mistake.
Good thing I ended it otherwise I would turn into a bad person.\

Someday I shall meet the ONE!

You know, I think it would be better to just let you have whatever opinion you want to have of me and move on.

Yes, clearly the one judging people unfairly is me.... you must tell me where you bought your anti-reality shield.

Clearly we both are wrong in different ways. We don't live in that kind of society. Don't want to hear another persons opinion something if it happens to be negative. Want to think the other person is just trolling and then we can assume we are right. To think, one day anti-reality shields will be made and it will be mandatory to own one.

no man, its just you that's wrong. I don't really agree with Phasmal or any women on escapist that much, but you make it sound like the primary purpose for relationships is for women to suck the money from you and for you to fuck them, that's wrong. Plain and simple.

Solaire of Astora:
2 internet relationships. 0 real life. 17 years old. I can really only think of 2 or so people in real life I'd even have a chance with that I'm attracted to, considering I'm a short (5'4") and skinny guy.

Even then, having a cleft lip and palate, no matter how fixed it is, really doesn't help in the being attractive department.

How do you define "have a chance with?"

Well...I suppose I mean that I really am of a small build. I guess a better way to word it would be that there aren't many girls in real life that I'm attracted to of a similar build. Since most girls want a taller guy and whatnot, it kinda lessens my chances. I'm also not much of a stunner with the way I look, though I attribute that to the whole cleft lip and palate thing. No reason to lose confidence though.

I like how you say, "no man it's just that are wrong." I am not really a fan of people that refuse to look at the world in both a negative, positive light. I don't really have time for people that say your wrong and then throw their opinion on you like thats going to change your mind. I can't speak for other people because I have not walked a mile in their shoes, so I am open to any persons view on something.

Depends how you count one really. I've had 2 official girlfriends, one unofficial (aka using the logic of nuh-uh we never said so so it doesn't count), a few dates that didn't work out and the one that got away.

Captcha: that's right. Woah.

EDIT: I'm 21, 22 this year.

I'm 16, and I've been in two "real" one's. First one ended because I was basicly just a slab of meat used for sex to her, and the second one was head over heels for me (#swag), and eventually got weird and annoying.

There is no one and a half option? I wasted half my life in a one-sided relationship, which consisted of me getting my heart stomped on by one fucking asshole "player", only to have my family say "awww you broke his heart."

I broke his heart? when did that fucking happen was I in a coma? and afterwards he has the nerve to say we are friends? we aren't friends, I don't make friends with jerks who still live off their parents like parasites and impregnate their girlfriends after two months of knowing eachother...

Forgive me if I'm not tolerant about people who go into relationships thinking "this is where I'm going to put my dick in while I'm being used for money".

None so far. For most of my early-mid teens I didn't really get any opportunities for a relationship, even though I wanted one like hell. Now that I'm older and could get a relationship if I tried, I choose not to. I'm still young (19), I ain't ready for those sorts of commitments yet. Not for a few more years at least.

0 and i mean a big 0. i'm twenty one and ive never kissed a girl, or even gone on a date. i've only recently had my first crush that wasn't based on lust (im really picky) and it turned out she was not interested in me at all, although i am glad we are still friends even after the whole awkward situation that confession brought up :p.

I'm 20 and I have never really been in a serious relationship. I almost was, and that was through asking this one girl in High School out to the Senior Ball. I had a crush on her for a while, and even confessed my feelings towards her. She responded pretty well.

Unfortunately, when I did ask her, she never really gave me a straight yes or no answer. She just said that she needed to look for a dress. So I waited for a response. About a week and a half before the ball, I texted her to see if she made any progress. As I couldn't rent a tux without knowing if she was going to go or not. She told me she couldn't find one, so I decided to ask if she just wanted to see a movie instead. At first she agreed, but then she started postponing the date because "she needed to ask her mom first". Eventually, nothing happened between us and we just went on being friends until the end of High School.

Six months after graduation, I found out she got married to another guy.

...

Yeah...:/

Right now I'm infatuated with another girl in college, but nothing is going on right now. We haven't talked much yet due to her usually showing up right when class is about to start. And I get sort of nervous whenever I talk to girls I'm infatuated with. Not sure what's wrong with me. :(

Well... I've been three maybe?

The first was in middle school. A girl asked me out that I didn't particularly like. I said yes anyway. I avoided her a lot. I didn't turn out well. It lasted almost a month xP.

The second was in high-school... Similar problem. Girl asked me out. I didn't like her... still said yes. "Maybe I would eventually like her?" Bitch took me to a twilight movie. (being slightly satirical... don't worry.) Lasted about 2 months

The third... started last Halloween. I got asked out again...

But I actually like this one =D. So wish me luck on that.

I want your honest opinion of what a relationship is? I want you to find me a relationship that exists where a man is not spending more money than the women. I want you to find me a guy that is happy spending all of his money on a girl and getting nothing in return. I only see this happening when the guy is really good looking and the women is below average. I am sorry to burst your bubble, you have to spend money to find love.

Most. Depressing. Thead. Ever.

Edit: Unless there's one about Fry's Dog floating around somewhere.

0 out of choice. Mainly because I knew that having a girlfriend would require time(which was mostly spent trying to do well in school or playing video games) and possibly money(which I don't have a lot of that often). Plus I'm not exactly a very social person and rarely get out of the house.

Shawn MacDonald:

My last relationship. She felt like it was patronizing for me to pay for more things than her.

Shawn MacDonald:

My friends last relationship. She payed for the apartment and groceries and all he did was get pissed when she went out with the girls at night. Their both 20 btw so it seems a bit odd.

Shawn MacDonald:

Their both about a 7.

Shawn MacDonald:

Fixed that for you.

0, because I'm a social cripple! :D

I'm joking about that either, I'm 26, and it's rather sad to watch me interact with someone that's hitting on me.

Dear God why! D:

Zero. I had opportunities back when I was younger (6-9 years ago and one girl when I started college) (22 now) but I wasn't interested in dating. Then when I became a little interested I had become an anti social shut in thus dooming myself. I got out of that phase and back into the world but I'm stupidly shy and I'd have to hire someone to put a gun to the back of my head for me to ever make a move on anyone. So I'll die alone without ever dating or kissing anyone. Oh well, that's life.

0, I'm not going out of my way to get into a relationship. I'm having a good time on my own for now(oh boy, that sentence can be read the wrong way).

I'm 21, I think people are too worked up over this kind of thing.

I am 24, I've had two serious relationships.

1st: Ex.boyfriend, that lasted a few years.
2nd: My husband. We'll have been married for two years this July 18th, all-together for five years and a few months. I don't keep track of things like first dates or things like that very well. I could be off by a few months.

I have dating many people. I would say 7-9. Two of those were serious relationships. The latter are the ones I am counting.
