The last 6 girls I dated each went on to marry the guy they dated after me.

Not the very last one, as that was too recent, but her chances are good!

So what does that say about me? Is it just random, or do I prepare women so well that they know exactly what they want and don't want afterwards?

And I broke up with 3 of them, the other three broke up with me (though one of the three that broke up with me was actually more mutual than anything else). So it's not that cut and dry.

Also, I'm not saying I wish I were married (especially not to any of them, except for maybe one of them...), or anything like that. I just thought it was an interesting pattern, and wondered if it were more of a coincidental thing or something more, something about me?

You're like an opening act for a headliner.

Are you particularly macho or "bad boy" acting? If so, perhaps they meet the next guy and he's more settled down and family oriented which triggers their nesting reflex.

If you hang around long enough you can catch one of them on the 7-year-itch bored and looking for a bad boy fling cycle.

Rinse off and repeat.

Me: "The title of the thread is 'The last 6 girls I dated each went on to marry the guy they dated after me.'"
Wife: "Oh, he's a lid popper."

So I that's what you are according to women. Apparently there's a type of guy known as a "lid popper". The more you know.

What I find more interesting is that you actually *know* that each of the 6 girls married the guy after you... Must mean the breakups were mutual with no real animosity involved, ie contact is still maintained in some way... So that counts greatly in your favor..

Ha! Not. At. All.

If anything, I'm more the settled down/family-oriented type.

I'm the kind/good guy, but not one to use my kindness to get favors. I grew with each relationship, but I was never the "bad boy" who would take advantage of a girl, nor one who would disregard her feelings. I've always been fairly empathetic.

Yeah, I'm either still in quasi-contact with them, or have some mutual friends or am still kinda friends with some of their family members. Only one of them got ugly, but we have some mutual friends.

Wait, is it a popper or a pooper? Big difference there!

C'mon, there's gotta be a penis size joke in there somewhere.

I am guessing it refers to how you'll have a jar that you just can't get the lid off. Hand it to someone stronger. They pop the lid, hands the jar back to you so you can finish taking the lid off.

Oh, and some perspective; I'm talking about actual committed relationships I've had (not just casual "dating", of which there's been a few) and with women since right after college, so almost 20 years now.

Can't say with certainty if it was his, but since she got pregnant 4 years after I last slept her, I'm pretty sure it ain't mine.

I had the same issue, but it was only 5 of the last 6 before I met my wife.
