Numbers don't really mean a whole lot in this instance; I mean, what if you were 25? 35? Then what would six sexual partners mean to you? It's all about relativity.

Besides, just because this person may have had a number of sexual partners you consider excessive doesn't mean that those were meaningless encounters; just because you would be "#6" doesn't automatically mean you would be just a number on the list. HOWEVER--if there are other things, personality-related things, that are causing you to feel that way, that's another story.

I don't really have a number that I think is a lot for a number of partners. I think that's one of those things that has to be looked at on a case-by-case basis. But nobody wants to be just a mark on somebody's bedpost, and if someone's making you feel that way, that's a sign that you should watch out.

This thread will be moved to Relationships so more people can answer your question.
