Re: How many relationships have you been in?

Two serious relationships before I met and married my first husband at age 19, that lasted 25 years. 6 years later met and married my second husband age 50. Don't intend to ever date or marry again if he dies first.

FWB none. One night stands none.

A lot.

A couple left life long impressions on both sides but only one lady managed to land me and I'm still with her.

Re: How many relationships have you been in?

Depends how you define "relationship".

I'm 44.

I've had my share of sex partners between ONS, FWB, and other types of casual arrangement, but less than a handful of relationships as I define relationship.

Follow the evidence where it leads and question everything.

Re: How many relationships have you been in?

Iíve had 2 very serious relationships. Lived with both, almost married one and did marry the other. Would have been a disaster to marry the first. Turned out to be a mistake to marry the second but it is what is...got three amazing children from it so I canít regret it.

Just started seeing someone new...so far so good. Keep your fingers crossed for me

Re: How many relationships have you been in?

I'll play.

Fifty Seven year old male.

In regards to what I would define as a "Serious" relationship, I've had six:

In two of those (girls #1 and 3), I turned down Marriage proposals from the girls involved.

I turned down an invitation to shack up from girl #2.

Girl #4 could have been the one. She was a Minister, and logistics simply made things impossible.

During a two year relationship, I proposed to girl #5. We lasted six months after that. I pushed her hard to the point where she broke up with me. After the crap she pulled on me (won't get into it,) 1) I wasn't going to give her the satisfaction of playing martyr to her family and 2) I really wanted my ring back.

I met the "Rebound" girl (#6) coming off that relationship 27 years ago. We've been married for 25. Sometimes the rebound person is the one.

63-year old male. Two real relationships, plus one unrequited crush, and one brief (a few weeks) crazy gf.

I 'stoled' this template from @Lila. I liked how she explained the lengths of time. Gives me something to go with. The numbers are mine.

Age: 57, going on 10

Gender: Male

Long-term relationships (>1 year): 2

Short-term relationships (6 months - <1 year): 0

Casual dating relationships (>3 dates but < 6 months): 2

FWB: 0

I should have clarified that casual dating does not mean casual sexual relationships. I meant it as a catch all for people who I may have started seeing, we enjoyed each other's company, but then for one reason or another, things didn't pan out long term.

Want to talk about that, @leec? I'm sure that you have something you need to talk about, having married and (presumably) divorced so relatively early.

Are you in counselling?

If not, do you think that might help you?

(>3 dates but < 6 months) ?

Yes and those where in the '90s, more than 20 years ago.

I've out on 1 date since 2012. It was one night/evening and I did it because I wanted to break the ice and see if I could do it again. I made a mistake because I wasn't really attracted to her, but I enjoyed her company and made a friend. So, all good.

I haven't found anyone my age to be attractive. I'm too old for those I do find attractive. It's pretty much over for me. I'll try, but I need to start doing things that I like and seeing if I find someone to date that way.

No sex in this latest one. No sex for many years. Sucks, but what can I do? I'm talking to a psychologist.

Edit: Zero casual sex, ONS, etc. NO sex in many years. That's an issue I have to work on with my psychologist. I have some deep scars from my second marriage.
