If you've had a previous relationship which was fairly long (2+ years), and you enter a new relationship which is going great, would you find it a great achievement if it outdoes the time of the previous relationship? So if your previous relationship lasted 2 years and this goes on past that, would you be more hopeful maybe?

Don't bump threads so quickly, its annoying. Give people time to reply.

How long a relationship lasts isn't necessarily an achievement. People can spend years in abusive relationships, some people have a wonderful marriage that lasts only a few months because one of them is terminally ill or one dies because they are old. Turning your current relationship into a competition with your previous one isn't healthy. If you are happy, just enjoy it for what it is.

No.
I don't measure the quality of a relationship in terms of how many months/years the relationship goes on for.
Each relationship is different, couples stay together for as long as they are able to and want to.

I prefer to focus on the feelings, affectionate actions, memories and other positive elements to determine the success/value of a relationship.
Friendships too.

No.

My two longest relationships are ones I really should have gotten out of a lot sooner. There's no point in me measuring anything against them.

Yup this is very true, some couples may move faster than others as well, or how close and how well you get along
