Well, seems as though no matter where my life turns i end up in the asylum... So my girlfriend of 7 months just told me she has had 16 sexual partners (including me) after having me previously believe only 4. I still love her and am not judging her on her actions before our relationship, the actual pain comes from that she didn't have enough faith in me to tell me in the first place. We had been dating for 3-4 months when the first number came out [didn't matter to our relationship] but as it is now i can't help but feel a sickness of being just a number. With 4 people, ok fine and dandy, i conquered blah blah blah that mentality of well at least she's with me now i must be doing something right. but gdamn, 16 makes it hard to feel "important" when something you hold high (sex, 3 diff. people for me but all serious) can be taken so lightly by others enough to not even remember some of the names.
