    Do you agree that people who have one partner are happier than those who have many sex partners?

    What do you think?

    I think people who do exactly what their heart desires is often happier regardless if no one agrees with it.  Most of the time people say they are happy, maybe reverse psychology works for them.

    I would agree that some are happier but not all. I don't believe men are monogamous by design and society attempts to force a change into that way of life. Some men are ok with this, others fight it tooth and nail. Women on the other hand, in my opinion, are generally interested in a single mate but may try on different shoes until they find one that fits. Happiness is relative to life's goals and experiences so these factors also come in to play. Short answer? Some are, some are not.

    I believe those who are with the partner(s) that are right for them are the happiest.  I don't believe any person has the right to dictate what makes someone "happier" than another. 

    I may prefer chocolate ice cream - but what right do I have to suggest that my preferences make me happier than the next person? Other people are just as happy eating vanilla or cherry ice cream...

    To each their own.  Who or how many someone chooses to have sex with is really none of my business as long as they are consenting adults.  I am personally happiest with my one partner - but that's my preference and doesn't make me better or happier than anyone else.

    I think that people who have only one partner have greater chances to build a good character and to grow spiritually. Having a monogamous relationship or marriage over a long period of time teaches you what love really is. Also, I believe that having many sex partners only shows that the person doesn't know what she wants or that she is emotionally incapable of making a strong commitment or take the responsibility of actually being a grown up.

    I happen to agree with you. having multiple partners can be very stressful especially when it comes to hiding one from the other or jealousy issues. Having one partner also helps to build trust in a relationship.

    Learning to truly be with one person does built character because it's a challenge.  To conquer the challenge made me proud and thus happy.  I remember being single and sometimes not having any of those sex partners available to me when I wanted, and that sucked!  With one person, a deeper, lasting, and more emotional and spiritual connection is made (so worth it)!

    I think it depends upon the people involved. My brother and his wife are each others "one and only" and they seem very happy. I have seen other couples that have had several partners and also seem happy.

    I have only seen disasters happen when people have more than one sex partner. There's always someone who gets hurt in that process.

    I am unsure of your question.  Do you mean simultaneously or throughout the course of ones life?  Everyone has there own prerogative but I think any situation is intensified when there is a higher emotional connection.  Chances are these emotional connections will not be present with multiple partners.

    One is sufficient and hard enough as it is!

    Oh gosh I do not need the BS from even the wrong one/one seriously, one can be too much.

    Gets old fast things with no depth, tried it before..always huge disappointment,not to mention the emotional price to pay.. Never again for as long as live to accept things that just suck the life out of you like some spiritual vampire.

    Basically, it depends on your sex.
    It's well-known than males are polygamous and females - monogamous.
    Therefore, in general, those men who have many partners are happier than with one partner and vice versa for women.

    Too many lovers at the same time = too complicated.  The person with one partner would be more content.

    no i don't agree in the least. it's the person's personality that makes them happy, not how many people they have had sex with.
