I couldn’t resist. Especially after watching the video. At first I was in complete agreement with YourTango‘s Experts. And then they got stupid. Watch:
So, the correct answer is NO. But if that doesn’t work, the correct LIE is 8. Because any number higher than 10 makes you sound like a slut.
I swear my neighbors could hear me laughing as I watched this last night. 8! LMAO hysterical.
Anyway, I’ve written about this number nonsense before and I’m a firm believer that it’s a ridiculous question for grown-ups. I care that my partner has been practicing safe sex. And I care about his medical history. Numbers don’t matter to me. In fact, I’m fairly sure that some of my partners (those that haven’t spent most of their adult lives married) have racked up numbers into the triple digits. And I’m OK with that.
I’ve only had one guy, a fairly serious bf, press me about my number. I understood, knowing him, that it was an issue of curiosity and wanting to get to know me better. And that no matter what I said, he wasn’t going to care much. And still I didn’t give him a number. Because I didn’t know. I was in my mid-30s and had long since stopped counting. So I gave him a ballpark figure and he was perfectly happy. I, however, was annoyed as hell that he made me go there. Obvious statement: it didn’t occur to me to lie. Why the fuck would anyone do that?
So… I want to know. What about you? Do you keep track? Do you share your number with your partner(s)? Do you ask your partner(s) about their numbers? Do you or have you ever lied about your number?
