I'm just wondering. Let's say that you date someone, break up, and then get back together. If someone asks you, "How long have you been dating?", what is the appropriate answer?
- Count it as the overall months together. (From both the first and second time.)Vote A
- Count it from whenever you two got back together.Vote B
- Don't count it at all.Vote C
- Consider it off and on for (amount of overall time).Vote D

Well that's the issue I had. My boyfriend and I dated 6 years ago (we were 14 and doomed for failure) lasted 6 months, broke up. Got back together a week later, lasted 3 weeks, broke up, got back together 3 days later, lasted nearly a year, broke up, got back together, lasted 7 months, broke up, got back together, lasted a year and a half, broke up, had some more short little relationships in there - about have a dozen, then finally got back together when I was 18, and we've been together officially since then. We just count from the last time we got together. So we say we've been together officially 2 years, 2 months, and days. Unofficially forever.3
