Today's question comes from Tom.
He writes, "Dear R-N-D, should I ever confess to a girl I'm dating about how many women I've slept with?"
My answer: Not unless the answer is 1. Even if that IS your actual answer you risk sounding like a girly-man who just couldn't get his act together enough to fool some impresonable and/or drunk women into sleeping with him. (Or even worse, a man who has respect for women and chooses to worship them for the goodesses they are - blech). And any number higher than your age makes you sound like a man-whore.
FYI - girls can see through the old "you're the only one that matters to me" line from a mile away.
So what's a guy to do?
You could go for the fail safe "baker's dozen" which not everyone knows is 13 (ie. giving you that one "freebie"). Or you could use one of the following actual math formulas to come up with a plausable number:
And Tom, you're welcome.
