My girlfriend has had 32 previous sexual partners

I am 27 and have been going out with a 26 yr old girl for just over 2 months, and I really like her. She is interesting, attractive, sexy, clever and funny, and I am in love with her. I was planning on telling her this last weekend, but in the course of a drunken q & a conversation, she told me that had slept with 32 people before me. I have always disliked promiscuity and I am now really unsure of what to think.

She explained that most of these occurred when she was young, and that she is longer “easy”. ! To me, this is an awful lot of people to have slept with for a young girl. Am I being stupid and oversensitive about this? I understand that the most important thing is what she is like now, not what happened 5 or 6 years ago, but I can’t stop myself thinking of her going out purely to find more men to sleep with, and that I am now going out with the girl who used to be the town bike (she once slept with a bloke just to find out if he had a large penis. On deciding he didn’t have a large penis halfway through the act, she just stopped and walked out.)!

Am I being stupid and oversensitive about this? And am I being really unfair on her for being bothered about it? I really hope you have some advice, because I am struggling.

I’m 32 and I can count the number of women I’ve been with on both hands. I’m sure if I had been with some comparable number of woman I might not be as jealous. It hurts, but what’s the alternative? I love her and don’t want to lose her. I believe that she loves me and that we don’t just have sex, but actually make love. Corny as it sounds, there is a difference. She’s been with other men so I don’t need to worry how I stack up; after 60+ men, she chose me. I was the one no other man could compare to.

So we should all have some dignity and stop wallowing in self pity. …
