2 years ago, at 35, I started actually "dating" someone. She was looking around for the perfect man for her, I even found out she would keep a list of pros and cons about each guy she was dating. We were dating for about 4 months, during which time she had been on dates with at least 6 other men, before we actually called it exclusive. I wouldn't do that again, as I'm only into dating one person at a time, I was basically having to compete to win her. She was open about it, she wasn't going to have sex with any men until it became a relationship, our relationship didn't even last a month. I would never go through that again.
After that, I've been out on dates with several women, only 2 went beyond a first date, by my choice, and they ended up becoming relationships, I was the only man they were dating at the time. So 1 out of probably 8 women I've dated would see more than 1 person. All of these women were looking for long term relationships and not just casual dates.
It makes me wonder are most women in their upper 30s more into dating only 1 or do they usually date multiple men
