    Discounting people you've dated on an occasional basis

    How long have your "long-term" relationships been?

    1) 14 years with my wife
    2) 3 years with a man I met after I was separated
    3) 3 months with a rebound guy
    4) 3 years and on with Caslon.

    I had a girlfriend for 5 years
    then a boyfriend for a year
    then my actual partner for almost 9 years

    The cool thing all of them are now really good friends, they still visit us and stay with us and we do the same thing with them...

    my ex girlfriend is even considering moving to our city now that she got divorced!

    OK, the response above me made me double over...witty!

    1st - 5 years
    2nd - 3 years
    3rd - 4 years

    The relationship with myself? ongoing [I felt like I should put "priceless" here for some Mastercard commercial]...

    1st ex: 1 year, he passed away from AIDS;
    2nd ex: 7 years - he could not relocate to SF with me in 2005 - this I feel could have been a life-long relationship had it not been for the move;

    Best friend: 30 years!

    PEACE

    First lover 2 years. I was young and learned a lot. The second one, 11 years. That ended last year. Still the best of friends though. The next one who knows. I'm not even concerned about it.
    I don't consider myself in the dating arena, I'm too independent for that. I never turn down people if they want to talk or go out on a date. I just feel if my destiny is to meet that special guy it will happen.

    I have a different agenda right now, and having a person in my life, is not that important. And for all the guys that have been in a gay relationship or are thinking about it remember, gay relationships are measured in dog years. Every year equals 7.

    Best to all of you
    Joe

    I spent 3 years with my first boyfriend until I found out he was sleeping with every man in town. 2 years with the guy after that until I realized he stoped pursuing his dreams and got too comfortable. and less then a year with my current ex who was by far one of the lousiest people I have ever shared an intamate relationship with. GOD was he lousy!
