Quality over quantity
Even though chatting online with various random guys is more fun than chatting to one, researchers say dating one is a better idea than dating many.
And the dating success Cameron Diaz, Natalie Imbruglia and Gwen Stefani who say they struggled to find a boyfriend in high school enjoyed in later years seem to prove these findings.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota found that the way teenagers date could have a big impact on their relationship success in later years.
And those who had fewer but longer lasting teen romances were found to be the relationship queens once they hit their twenties.
Girls who dated between seven and nine guys when they were between the ages of 15 and 17 were found to have quite a bit of relationship issues after celebrating their 20th birthday.
This was compared to girls who had one or only a few boyfriends when they were these ages.
The group who didn't date as many guys had more luck in love as twentysomethings.
They reported more intimacy and honesty in their romantic connections than the frequent daters.
But those like Cameron Diaz, Natalie Imbruglia and Gwen Stefani who struggled to find dates in high school seem to be better off than their frequently dating classmates.
