Midweek Hustle: Do Numbers Matter?

Our actions and decisions today will shape the way we will be living in the future.

Happy Humpday Purgators!

Numbers are a complicated thing, we’re not just talking about math (which yes, can be frustrating) but more so the number of sexual partners one has been with in the past.

What is the perfect number? Is less really more? Do people really care? These are all questions we and so many others have asked.

Call us curious but when discussing this topic we were both really interested to know what the perfect number for men is and since we don’t have the authority to answer on behalf of them we decided to share our female point of view.

The Brunette: I personally do not care how many people my partner has slept with, they could have been with a million people for all I care – as long as they were safe. Since I tend to lean on the curious side if they decided to share that information with me I would not be upset. Maybe because my number is not necessarily low, I don’t feel like my partners number is much of a threat.

The Blonde: I don’t really care how many people my partner has been with but that is information I do not want to be privy to. I’ve always felt this way and I can’t really put my finger on the reason why, it may be because I tend to be a bit of an over thinker and the thought of my partner with other women is not something I want in the back of my mind. I’m happy being left in the dark about some things and this is one of them.

We did a quick Google search to see what the general consensus of the general public was and found that according research done in the U.K, 37% of men said the ideal number of their partner would be between 8-12 and 38% of women agreed with the men. We also found that 29% of both men and women disclosed their number once exclusive.

We’re curious to know what your thoughts on this topic are. What is your ideal number for your current partner? Do you share this information and do you want this information shared with you? We’d love to hear from you, leave a comment below or tweet us @FirstDatePurg.

  1. As long as I’m the last partner my current partner has, and they’re aware of their own health status, I could really care less about their number. That said, it might be because I can’t remember my own number and even if I did I’d never share it. The last time I gave my number to a girl I was maybe 22, 23 so….8-9 years ago
