    I dated throughout Middle School and High School, but I'd say my first "proper" relationship was in college when I turned 21, and this relationship is going on 3 years now (with it's ups and downs, of course)

    I had my first "proper" relationship at about age 20 or 21, but I've had a whole lot of "improper" relationships before and after that. I guess like most guys, whenever I wasn't in a proper relationship, I was in a variety of improper ones (hook ups / one-nighters).

    DannyW said15 years old and it wasn't great but it lasted longer than a year so I guess it counts as my first relationship.

    I had started a relationship last March and then it was a bit annoying because I had to go abroad so we we broke up. So now I'm in Spain and he's in Ireland but we're constantly talking anyway and we're getting together when I'm home for Christmas. So we're broken up but there's still something there.

    It has been my first relationship with a guy and it's just been unfortunate timing that we're in different stages of our lives. He's lovely though and I miss him.

    Not sure what constitutes "proper" in the OP's mind.

    I didn't come out to myself until just before I turned 28. Prior to that, there hadn't been any women whom I dated more than for a couple of months and there hadn't been any full-blown sex with any of them.

    My first sexual experience with a guy was just before I turned 29,and he and I dated for about a month.

    I dated guys here and there after that, and had sex with a few of them. But my first significant relationship with another guy didn't happen until I was 36. We were together a couple of years (including living together for a year) and then continued to see each other off and on and have sex and think about "officially" getting back together for a couple years beyond the time we "officially" broke up.

    My second significant relationship (which included living together and getting married -- and divorced) started when I was 41 and lasted 9 years.

    It's only since then that I can actually say I'm enjoying dating for the first time in my life.

    17, with another high school boy, lasted 4 years but I didn't officially come out till 25. My partner actually never came out (as bi), he went on to have 3 children by 3 different mothers, he still appears to be in denial to this day icon_confused.gif (he surprised me by showing up to my mothers funeral over a decade ago) icon_eek.gif (he is also the only guy I ever got into a fist fight with that was broken up by police, that is how we broke up, I gave him a black eye, I think it was a knee to the face icon_smile.gif he cheated on me with a women and had his first child with her in our last year together icon_mad.gif

    Proper meaning with your actual preferred gender, or meaning it was two people, falling for each other, sleeping together, etc...? I've had real relationships with girls before realizing I was gay. In that case I'd say 17? As for the guy version I was 30?

    Need to define "proper". But I guess at 45. I was a very late bloomer. It lasted about 6 months. So did the next one. With a lot of tricks and short-term BFs in between and after. I learned early that gay relationships tend to be fleeting.

    After that it got more permanent. A couple at 2 years, plus a partner who suddenly died soon after we moved in together. Currently we're at 10 years. I'd call that proper. But I had to wait until I was 58. The moral being: never give up.

    18-19.. It was over a year long relationship. We still keep in touch. I ended it because he was my first everything and I felt I needed to explore my sexuality/possibilities. It was a shallow thing to do (I was out of his league in the looks dept to say the least plus he was 6 years older) and sometimes I wish I didn't because I went through some traumatic experiences after that, but it is what it is and I'm in a good place now.

    I've actually had a very rocky and shaky dmrelationship life before I met my boyfriend. That's why I always tell people to never give up hope.

    Relationship #1: I was 22 and the guy was a 26 geeky white Wal-Mart worker. I promised to be his boyfriend if he won a stuffed animal in Dave&Busters (not expecting he was actually gonna win it). The relationship dissolved pretty quickly since he had no free-time; which was EXTREMELY important to me.
    -Duration: 1 month.

    Relationship #2: I was 23 and dating a cute 18 year old Latino HS Senior. We had awesome sex and he wanted me to be his boyfriend. I said yes but I would always find him on grindr after we would hang out so I distanced myself from him until it fell apart. I also figured that he was too young to know what he wanted so I left him alone. I was a top at the time and he would never clean out his butt before sex so that was another turn off.
    -Duration: 1 week

    Relationship #3: I was 23 and he was a 28 year old Italian-American dude who lived 2.5 hours away. This was the first dude that I actually took seriously. He was a nice guy with a heart of gold but he completely lacked ambition on life. Since I was ambitious, he assumed that I was looking for a billionaire or something. He was was away to emotional for me and always played the victim in every aspect of life. The long distance thing got pretty old too. I kinda sabotaged the relationship by acting cold and bitter.
    -Duration: 3 weeks

    Relationship #4: My current boyfriend! I was 23 and he was 21 when we met last year. Its been going excellent ever since where we even moved out together, took vacations together and have major plans in the future (he is in my pics). We also maintain a small youtube channel together (in my profile).
    -Duration: 1 year and 4 months.

    I was 31, it only lasted one year. My best ever relationship didn't happen until I was 58, and it was with a guy 25 years younger than me.

    I was 18, Ian was 20. He was the first guy I kissed and first guy I fucked with.
    We were together (sometimes by distance, sometimes co-habiting) for 5 years.

    Lasted till I was 19.
    Albeit, the first time I fell in love, was younger.
