Body count is a touchy subject that will bring judgment from others. One way to handle that situation is to keep your mouth shut. Certain things shouldn’t be discussed because they are your personal business. Once you open that door, it will bring more questions that you don’t want to quite get into.
It’s one thing to tell your bae that you have a past that you aren’t too proud of–but to give an exact number, some people can’t handle that information. Honestly, what is considered too many? Everyone is going to have their opinion about what is considered too many in their eyes.
Many people experimented while they were young and got it out of their system to mentally and emotionally prepare themselves for one person. Will you fault them for being single and doing what they wanted to do before you?
Asking anyone about their body count isn’t a wise decision. Who’s to say that they will be honest with you? They could have slept with 20 people, and then when you ask them, they tell you five. Are you going to investigate it later? What does that number mean to you?
If you are dating someone that treats you like a king or queen, and they haven’t given you any reason to doubt their loyalty, their past is just that. It’s about what they are doing now. Only you know what you can and cannot handle. So, use your better judgment when handling a situation of this sort.
Remember, some people do change!
