I recently started dating a girl and I know she's curious about my past love life.
She asked me how many serious relations I've had but I'm pretty sure she'll eventually ask me how many girls I had sex with.
Considering this number is 17, i'm afraid she'll feel bad or intimidated.
What sould I do? Be completly honest or find an acceptable number?
Thanks for your opinion.

Honestly is USUALLY the best policy, and in this case I'd say yes be honest. But you can soften it up a bit. Maybe try telling her, "I may have been with 17 girls, but hopefully you'll be my last" or something to that extent.
W/e you do, the goal is to make her feel like she is special. Like she is the one you're meant to be with, not those other girls. If she feels intimidated, it'd likely be a sense of "well, who am I compared to all those other girls?" You need to answer that question! Let her know often exactly who she is to you. Make her feel special like she is not just another girl, let her feel like THE girl. You've had many others, but now you've got the right one... That's the impression you're going for.
It helps if you can feel it yourself, like she is the girl you've been looking for.1
