For guys and girls, what I mean by this is, do you believe there is a point where someone has dated "too many" individuals by, say, the time they graduate high school? If so, what is that magic number?
Is everyone looking for someone fresh and untainted by the dating world, or is a girl or guy whose had more experience better?

I really didn't date in high school. parents and small town were my excuse. Once, I started college, I really got into the dating pool. But, I married and divorced the first man I ever slept with. Now, I realize I didn't have enough dating experience to have any business getting married. Also, when you date a man and are not exclusive, so many women will date just that one guy, doing themselves a diservice. I learned to date a few guys (none exclusively of course) at the same time, let me tell you, it helps you understand what you need/want from a relationship, and if they are worth your time. Putting a number on how many dating relationships a possible partner has had is absurd. I went back to college, and realize that working full time, school full time, and raising my son, doesn't allow a boyfriend the time he deserves. So, I don't look for a serious relationship, but I find it is absolutely necessary to date still. To tell the truth, I do have a boyfriend now (first time in years), and he is absolutely a dream! Experience is better, because you understand all that you want/need from a partner. I really credit to knowing how wonderful my boyfriend is, because of my many dating experiences. Hope this helps.0
