"Gets broken up with?" "Two?"

Up here, and I assume it is similar in most smaller, Midwestern college towns, it is she who is usually the initiator of the breakup. And the breakup come in threes.

Charlie Freak's postulate:

The first breakup (the HS boyfriend) is initiated by the girl any time between the summer before college starts and the semester break of freshman year. Triple the chances if it's long-distance.

The second breakup (the new discovery) happens around age 21 when she is able to get into the clubs/bars and starts to think the person she's with is "too serious." This one may be initiated by either side, however - I'd say 75/25 in favor of the woman initiating.

The third breakup (the macho badass or fun frat guy, depending) happens around age 23 when she is ready to graduate and realizes he's not marriage/baby-making material. Can also be career-motivated. Decent-looking, smart single women in their mid-to-late 20's simply don't exist here.

Anyway, I can't tell you how many times I've heard "dude, how did you know?"

It's science.

poison_amy: Slut, not whore.


Well, attention whore, according to your profile.

I'm of the opinion that everyone (of every gender and orientation) is to some degree a whore.  Almost everyone will trade sex with someone they're not that into for something they want at some point in their lives... It's just that most of us want something other than cash (IE attention, emotional support, ego enhancement, bragging rights, novelty, fantasy fulfillment, a fancy dinner, whatever).  

People will go to great mental lengths to lie to themselves about the quid-pro-quo nature of (some of) their sexual encounters just to avoid the mental stigma of admitting to themselves that it is a transaction.

Dude, I was in my 20's once, have the T-shirt, etc. Although for me it was dumped once and dumper 2nd time. Third time lucky (but she had already followed the postulate to the letter).

I see it happen to bandmates and employees all the time and it messes with their consistency. Also, it really irks me when bandmates "can't" take on a lot of gigs, practice, or whatever because the clingy control freak in stage 2 won't let them (hey, it's not like you are married and have kids!). Then she dumps him, goes into stage 3 and bandmate is utterly destroyed for about two months. shiat show for sure.

Bonus points if she shows up to a gig with her friends and tries to act all blasé and aloof (look at me, I'm having a great time and this doesn't affect anyone!), triple points if she shows to a gig with her new guy.

Seen it at least a half dozen times, maybe more. As my daughter would say... annoyin'

The only real problem with the polyamorous is that they can never shut the hell up about it. I've never been able to figure out if they feel the need to constantly troll for the next bit of strange or they believe they're just so daring and unique that they can't help but "brag." The whole thing comes off like the fat shopgirl who wears a bustier and studded dog collar. Yeah, you're so sexual. Put it away, darling, nobody cares.

Most never find "the one", they meet someone when they're young, they fall in love, then they do something stupid to f it up...because we do stupid shiat when we're young. You then spend years trying to find someone else that made you feel like you did before. Most fail.

Then "the one" turns into "you'll do." Millions deny this is them, but your friends and family know, they know.

theflatline: Ok, this is based on a study answered by Eharmony customers.  Which means:

1.Eharmony customers are socially inept to begin with.
2.Liars

This other bit I find hilarious.

Men, on the other hand, face being stood up twice and will have six one-night stands before they meet their ideal partner. This figure could be coming down, though, because a separate study suggests that men are becoming less afraid of commitment.
They also want to settle down at a younger age than a decade ago, a survey of 2,000 adults by dating site eHarmony found.


Really? Only six one night stands, do friends with benefits count?  Did they survey the Amish?


Also this.

The survey coming from eHarmony is automatic cause to suspect the results.

Also, I've heard virtually everywhere else that men are actually moving farther and farther away from traditional marriage and commitment. With the way civil courts, divorce, child support, and domestic violence laws are written, marriage is more and more of a losing game for men every day. I'm very curious how eHarmony got that tidbit from the results.

simkatu: If the average hetero man is having 7 one-night stands, then the average hetero woman is also having 7 one-night stands.


Know how I can tell you've never taken a statistics class?   Statisticians don't say "average" because it's ambiguous.    They use "mean", "median", and "mode" (among others);   "average" can mean any of those things and more.

Mean is what you learned in elementary school: sum of the values divided by the number of values
Median is the value such that half the elements are above it and half are below it.
Mode is the value which occurs most frequently.

Let's say you've got 100 guys and 100 girls.  

Guys 1 - 10 all fark girls 1-16.  Guys 11-70 fark girls 1 - 8, plus one other girl nobody else farked (guy n farks girl n+6).  

Just to make it fun, let's assign some high school clique labels to the various groups.

So among guys you've got:
10 who got laid 16 times (the jocks)
60 who got laid  9 times  (the average guys)
30 who got laid 0 times. (the dorks)

And among girls you've got:
8 who got laid 70 times (the sluts)
8 who got laid 10 times (the cheerleaders)
60 who got laid 1 time (the average girls)
24 who got laid 0 times. (the uggos)


That's 700 acts of coitus divided by 100 people for each gender, for an arithmetic mean (aka an "average") of 7 acts of coitus per guy/girl.    However that doesn't tell the whole story, and it's not what we mentally visualize when we talk about an "average" person.   When we think about populations, we mostly visualize the modal group as being "average"/"normal".   Occasionally we visualize the median, rarely do we think in terms of the mean.   

The 60 "average" (modal) guys are farking 9 girls - they all have steady girlfriends, but they're all also banging the 8 sluts on the side, while their respective 60 "average" (modal) girlfriends are being faithful and have only farked their "average" boyfriend. 

The cheerleaders are just about tied with the "average" guys in terms of total partners, but they're not even close to the sluts who are farking everyone except the dorks.   Meanwhile, the jocks are getting jiggy with all the sluts AND all the cheerleaders and skewing the "average" (mean) for the guys, while the dorks and the uggos are all at home playing WoW and posting to Fark.

None of the "average" people had anywhere near the "average" number of partners.  You can also say that "on average", more girls than guys have had sex, but "on average" the guys have had more sexual partners.   

"Average" is such a nebulous word.   It can mean all sorts of different things, which is why people who know math (AKA people who weren't journalism majors) avoid using it.

If the average hetero man is having 7 one-night stands, then the average hetero woman is also having 7 one-night stands.   It's always funny how they say men have so many more sexual experiences than women on the average, when that's clearly not the case.  Men are lying and saying they are having more sex than they are and women are lying and saying they are having less sex than they did.    A heterosexual one-night night adds one tally to the men's count and one to the women's count.  Divide by the number of men and women and you'll find the numbers match.

Of course frequency distribution might matter.  Perhaps there is a single woman that is having sex with every man that is skewing the results, but I find it more likely that people are just lying about their experiences to make themselves feel closer to the societal expectation for men and women.

Take 10 guys and 10 girls. 1 guy farks all 10 girls, the other 9 get none. The average for guys will be virtually 0 (.1) while the average for girls will be exactly 1.
.


Oh, not to be annoying, but that's just wrong. (10+9*0)/10=1, not 0.1, so still same average for both genders.
I am not insisting the numbers HAVE to be the same. I just would like to see a case in which, among equal numbers of heterosexual consenting adults, they are not. Because everyone keeps on saying I'm wrong about this, and I might be indeed... But where is the proof? I have yet to see a legitimate mathematical model.

I'm certainly not denying that there's a transaction. Obviously I'm getting something out of it or I wouldn't do it. However, the prostitution or whore label is generally reserved for use when there is a monetary transaction.

I don't call them friends with benefits, because we don't hang out for any other reason...


Sounds like the woman who lived across the hall from me in my first apartment out of college.   I called her the naughty nurse.   She seemed to have a similarly sized stable of regulars, based on the rotating lineup of cars parked in the guest spot.   I wasn't self-confidant or self-aware enough at the time to shoot for a spot in the lineup, something I now regret.    Fortunately, I got over that.

Women who enjoy recreational sex are a distinct minority.   Those who admit to it openly are even more of a minority.   I've learned that y'all are a rare gift that shouldn't be squandered.   I married the next one I found, and we've been happily and polyamorously married ever since.    Her dance card is a bit less full than yours... she has one regular at the moment; the most she's ever juggled since we've been together is 3 with 1 of them being long-distance.    I'm nominally seeing two other women, although between my travel schedule for work and their careers, scheduling is a nightmare.

That said,  how YOU doin'?

Charlie Freak: It's scien

I think it varies significantly by education and social class.

The patten you describe sounds like the typical 4-year college girl relationship arc, but there a lot of others, most of which are a lot more dysfunctional.

The most common pattern I've seen in the millennial generation is date some "bad boy" loser (musicians seem to a popular choice), get knocked up between 19 and 21,  either get dumped by babydaddy or kick him to the curb.  Most of the time they swear off men for a few years while raising the shiathead's spawn, then desperately start searching for a serious mate when the kid starts school.  The minority option is to date a string of successive deadbeat shiatheads, and do the same thing all over again, and/or give shiathead #1 a second (or third or fourth) chance to change (which he never does).
