STOP AND COUNT.
1. The number of homes you've lived in. I lived in my parents' home from birth until I was 22. At 27, I built (personally, with my family) a rather grand home on an 'executive-sized' suburban lot in which we raised our family for 22 years. As part of my divorce, we sold our marital home last April and I acquired my present spectacular waterfront property.
From the ages of 22 - 27, I rented five or six different houses, apartments and rooms as my career took me from Quebec, Ontario, Newfoundland and British Columbia. I liked every place in which lived but for me, owning my own home was of primary importance.
2. The number of cars that you've had. I have no interest in cars other than to get me from "A" to "B" and will never buy a new car, ever in my life. I tend to buy cars which are two to six years old and drive them until they are around fourteen years old.
The cars I've had include:
-early 80s Ford pickup truck. Loved it! The vehicle of my youth!
-late 80s Dodge Colt (Mitsubishi). Drove it in major cities all over Canada.... My favourite ever car.
-mid 80s Ford Tempo. Biggest pile of ka-ka ever built.
-early 90s Mercury Sable wagon. Boring "okay" familly car, great for carrying loads of kids. I drove it until the frame rusted through and it collapsed on the highway....
-late 90s Chevy Astro Van. Fond memories of this reliable gas guzzler as we used it for driving trips all over the continent.
-six year old Toyota Corolla. My present car. I like it! I am now 'sold' on Toyotas, but a full-sized pickup truck would be a better fit for my rural lifestyle if it weren't for the terrible gas mileage.
3. Approximate number of sexual encounters you've had.
My wife is the first and only woman I had sex with |(I was a virgin well into my 20s.) We had a lot of it in the early days of our marriage but it dwindled off to no sex at all within five years.... for reasons we now all know, but I didn't figure out until ten years later. I was gay!
Since January 2012 when I signed up on pof.com, I've hooked up around once a week... maybe a little bit less, if you count casual encounters such as back seat blowjobs. I could hook up every day as I still seem to be very popular with desirable guys of all ages, but job and family demands and hosting problems limit my availability.
4. Number of siblings you have. I have one older brother. Although I'm the youngest in the family, my role was that of the "older, responsible, first-born child" because my brother had his problems and dramas growing up. Most parental attention was (and still is) focussed on him.
My wife used to get enraged by the way my parents treated me as compared to my brother but I always told her, "It has made a stronger, more independent person."
