I can't really answer this - things just sort of 'happen'. I had a boyfriend in high school for about two months. Some FWB's. My ex-husband. A couple of blind dates and meetings that only lasted the one date (one walked out within two minutes because he couldn't correlate the witty, funny woman from email with the ugly, fat woman who showed up; another I got along well with and he asked for my number, then found the love of his life the day after). Met Master at a dating site, met in person and really hit it off, and we're exclusive to each other. Anywhere from six to eight misadventures, I suppose, but never did any real dating.
