I would make this clicking, but TB can't get their sh!t together. Does your spouse or significant other know your actual number of sexual partners? Do you know theirs? Do you lie about yours and why? Do you think they are truthful about theirs?
thetheisens:I know dh's(it's very low), but he doesn't know mine. He said when we first started dated he didn't want to know and has never asked. My number is much higher than his. I have a friend who lies significantly about it to her husband. I'm not sure if I think it's a big deal or not.
Lying about it is a big deal, imho.
We know both numbers but that's a conversation we had a long time ago and totally irrelevant now. I can't imagine lying to my partner about that. If they don't ask, that's a different story.

I figured most people would have had this conversation when dating, but if you lie in the first place you would have to keep the lie up. I know that most people don't care now about who their SO has been with in the past, but how would you feel if you found out they lied in the first place? Which I guess is what you're saying, the lie is the big deal.
We both know, but we've been together since we were 20 and our numbers are really low. I think if I had had more experience I might not have been so forthcoming, and I probably wouldn't have wanted to know his number either.
He asked when we first started dating,I told him the truth minus my two rapes as I dont really include them.
He told me his number and I read a book years later that his therapist made him write, it had all his regrets,lovers,friends etc. So I believe his number .
Mine is higher than his and yet he is older. I lost my virginity at an younger age than him.
scarlettoctober:Yes, DH does.nbsp; I know his.nbsp; I don't lie about mine and I know he hasn't either.
We were each others' firsts. He knows I had two boyfriends before him, doesn't know about the randoms I made out with, though. And he doesn't know how close my one bf and I came to having sex. Since we didn't actually have sex, and he's someone who we're both still friends with, I figure it's probably better that he not too much detail about that side of things.
I know I was his first gf and as far as I know he only even went on a couple dates with one other girl (his bff's sister, right before she got pregnant and engaged to her on-again-off-again high school sweetheart). I think he probably hasn't even really kissed anyone before me, besides little pecks.

Yes - I know his. I was his second. He knows mine and it?s way way way more. I?m not proud of the way I used to sleep around, but I?ve no regrets either. It?s what was needed at the time.
DH and I met when we were 19 at Uni, and I was already known as a player I went with most of his friends before we became an item.
With that said, I still refer to DH as my first boyfriend, as he was the first and only guy I have ever emotionally invested in.
I knew he was only interested in a serious relationship, so I would never have considered just sleeping with him and then moving on. He was "all or nothing" and as it so happened, I was more than ready to settle down.
