Poll: How many people have you dated seriously?
meh · 16 years, 4 months ago
The tricksy thing is deciding if I should run by "That I considered serious at the time" or "That I still consider serious in retrospect."
Luckily, either of these ways of looking at it put me in the same category - I'd only jump once if I cheated and included the rare odds and ends that weren't "serious" (at least not to me/by my way of thinking) to me at the time.
So, uhm, yeah. *nodnod*

I picked 1-3, but if my longest relationships have all been 4 months long, can they really be considered all that serious? I'm only had one relationship that I thought might actually be "the one" but sadly, it wasn't.

It's hard for me to pin this down because what's "serious". There were many relationships in my teen years that were exclusive and somewhat long-lasting. I would have considered them serious. But looking back they seem less so. If you mean serious as in...prospect for marriage and/or lifetime committment, that shrinks it.
It's hard to define these things when you've never dated casually. :)
So...3 if it's the latter definition, 11 if it's the former.

that's if you count on-line realationships, otherwise zippo.

I put one to three because of the nature of the word "serious," and no, I'm not going to say if it was 1, 2, or 3. Anyways, I define "serious" as "gee, I might actually be able to stand dating this person for longer than three months/a year/a lifetime...

dating doesn't work for me. i end up playing all sorts of insecure little headgames with myself. so... i haven't "seriously dated" anybody.
however, there have been 2 people who i have loved enough/felt compatible enough with that i would move to a fishing village in coastal Spain with them and spend the rest of my days playing a lute and serenading them as they fried our dinner trout.
