Hi, it's been about a little over a year so since my first dissociation episode that caused us (me as a system but also my household) to believe I have DID. During this episode I spent a bit over a week with only the memories of an Alter that stopped fronting at 6 years old, that spell of confusion and having other alters locked out ended after we went across town to pick up a kitten for my partner. However that wasnt the last time (this year has been STRESSFUL) and hindsight is 20/20 so I've been able to see some of my past behaviors clearer, both literally because we can better work together to share memories and metaphorically because I can understand the motives behind some things better knowing it wasnt actually me. I have since discovered that I currently have 18 alters who I know of but I am definitely missing some. I seem to have some uncommon traits, for example I am transmasc however all of my alters identify as mostly binary men (plenty GNC but still binary men) including several young children who dont understand/remember transitioning and assumed we're cis at first. it also seems that my relationship is fairly uncommon, my partner also has DID and all of our alters seem to have some kind of positive romantic/sexual feelings for each other even if they dont have an active relationship or even have spoken to each other. my system is also mostly kid alters, I have 4 documented alters above 18 (I both as the alter typing and as a body am 24) and most of the rest are under 13 years old and/or are animal alters, including many of the ones I know are missing. I'd like to hear about other people's experiences with these topics or any other you feel relevant/interesting.

      Us as a system can understand what it's like dating another system. There are too many alters for EVERYONE to have a match but we have 2 individual spouses and one of them has DID while the other has OSDD. So I understand the unique outlook that systems dating systems can have.

        @StoneHaven_System we seem to have some kind of match for all our alters even if they havent actually discovered their match yet. Sometimes It feels like we have to wait for planets to align and then roll dice to see which alters get to meet each other and while some have been waiting patiently for a specific alter to front at the same time as them, others seem to suddenly fall in love with unexpected alters. The funny thing is we initially met online as teens, years before our actual meeting as adults, but got disconnected before we could exchange contact information and the two teen alters that met that time only recently got to actually meet and interact with each other because both of them front significantly less now.
