How do you all add dating time? From the first date, the first kiss, the first relations, the first family meet-up? I have girlfriends who were not claiming their significant others for real in high school or the beginning of college, but when they're recalling the relationship their math gets all fuzzy and they come up with this erroneous number of years.
Then I have guy friends who are married, who KNOW they were in a relationship with their wife for a long time before the man actually started counting being together. Like how is she telling folks y'all been together for two years longer than you telling folks y'all been together?
In real life though, does it matter? For those of you that are married or in long-term relationships, is it a point of contention? Does your husband/wife/significant other get mad when you mess the months/years up? I guess in the grand scheme of things, it probably doesn't matter, but I'm so good with numbers that it just messes me up.
On another note why is when a guy doesn't want to be serious (yet) he tells you how many dates you've been on. We've only been on three dates and you're trying to lock a brother down. But when that same dude is trying to smash he counts the very first time he saw you as factoring into your decision. But we've been knowing each other for six months. DUDE, the time that you were watching me and I didn't know you DOES NOT COUNT.
