How many is too many?

Post by newkidontheblock » Fri Feb 07, 2020 6:06 am

After reading ‘a sad tale’ and other posts, I got to wondering, how many sexual encounters is too many for a serious relationship?

A question for the board. How many men would a girl have slept with before a guy think of writing her off as marriage material? Or vice versa? How many girls could a guy have been with before a woman write him off as someone to marry? Or consider an equal half to have kids with? Or can a taxi girl or playboy make a good spouse?

I know that missus wishes that the number would be zero, and it makes her sad every time she thinks about it.

A serious relationship for what ?

I had hundreds of serious relationships, some just shorter than others :-)

I'd say a girl who is sad every time she thinks about the amount of partners her husband had before meeting her is bad material to have kids with.

I totally agree. A girl who is sad every time she thinks about the amount of partners her husband had before meeting her is bad material to have kids with. And bad material to even be married to.

How about:

Oh I'm sorry baby way too many to remember. I think the girls name last night was prunella but that could have been one I did 20 years ago.

Or

How many? How many? I'd have to say about 5,000, but those are the ones that... [Mod edit: tone the language down pls]

It all comes down to getting experience. Would you fly in a plane when the pilot has no experience. or be taught to drive a car by a 16 year old with no experience. How are girls and guys going to learn different things if they dont have different meetings with many partners. This is the big problem when village girls / guys meet . White rice meets white rice, and a baby, is born the same as has been done for many generations before.

It's all about education and experience and that's not always available at school or home . So if you or your partner have had many other sexual experiences , that could be good for a relationship.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Couldn't care less. 1. 100. 1000. Whatever. Relationships are all about going forward.
