I've had 2 both of which didn't work out. I'm still breaking down what exactly went wrong but that's way to complicated for a response.

Basically, I think it boils down to me not knowing myself well enough and spending too much time trying to be someone I'm not. Getting past that atm.

Live in gf in college - she was older (grad student) and probably taught me more about being a man than anyone

7 yr live in gf in NY - we were together for the first year (Columbia Heighrs then Brooklyn), but then I went on tour, then she started teaching in Rotterdam, then she joined Martha Graham, then I went to grad school— getting a teaching job in tx finally killed that relationship

This one’s epic - met her in DC during a time I was having an affair with a married/separated woman
We had an LDR for a few months that faded away
We reconnected when I moved to Tx and tried to make another LDR work - it didn’t
After 9/11 ( I had moved back to NO) we got back together again
She even moved diwn to NO for a time - we got engaged twice, but neither kept

And now my wife of 13 years

I have had three.

1. Started in college and lasted much longer than it should have. We were compatible in college but definitely not after that and I was the one that lost interest . . . I should have ended it sooner than I did, regret stringing her on.

2. The hot-but-crazy rebound from #1. Also lasted much longer than it should have (more than 3 years) - became highly toxic.

3. My wife. Our second date lasted a whole weekend. Our third date pretty much hasn't ended for going-on 14 years now.

that too is one of my greatest regrets. Twice I was in relationships that I knew would not work long before they ended. Its not that I was consciously stringing them on but had I taken the time to really look at it I would have known that was what was going on. The second time I did that, the woman wanted children and I feel horrible about not moving her towards that sooner. At the time, I wanted kids too but never would have with someone I thought to be cat shirt crazy.
