When your partner or some hottie asks how many people you’ve slept with, be prepared there may be no safe answer. It can lead to a major blow up, with one person feeling very jealous and a little insecure. After all, talking about the past could lead to big problems in the present.
You may be the one who has shagged a lot of people and look like a slag, or you may look like a virgin compared to your partner. I remember a flight attendant told me she compared numbers only to find out that she had slept with 30 more people than her partner! Now that’s awkward, maybe she taught him a thing or two.
Of course, the answer will depend on who’s doing the asking, but go ahead, tell us what you think is the best answer.
