Women, does it really bother you if a guy has been around the block?
Most Helpful Girl
My concern would be more along the lines of WHY has he been around the block? Is he one of those guys that is only out for sex? Does he have commitment issues? I'd definitely be on my guard trying to figure out what's wrong with him. But my absolute best male friend in the world definitely falls into this category of "been around the block" and I did date him once upon a time and would again if I were single. So if I knew the guy fairly well I might. Also, I might date him but have my guard up. Like. Not expect much from him. Have some fun but not expect a lasting relationship or anything. Which was what I did when I dated my friend.
I don't think I would write him off completely, but I would want to know why he's slept around so much. I would want to know what his more recent relationship history has been like. If he has slept around when he was younger but in more recent years has been in committed long term relationships more often than that's different in my opinion. And I would ask him what, if anything, he thinks makes me different than any other woman he has slept with and then moved on from. Why is this going to work out better?
But I think the bottom line is going to be how well do I know him? If I just met him I'm more likely to be turned off. If I've known him a while it's easier to overlook in favor of other qualities.0
