Did they ever said it in the show, or are their any clues?

Yes, as I unintentionally said anonymously above, they said it many times. Think about how many times you've heard Jerry or Elaine say, "We used to date but now we're just friends". I'm guessing twenty, at minimum. I always thought it was their standard line and they even said it a few times when the need really didn't seem to be there.

They almost ran us out of Bayside for it, and I can prove it, if I have to. Smile

OK, my apologies. The question was how LONG they dated. I don't supppose that was ever really answered, huh? We know from The Deal that prior "relations" occurred 25 times according to Jerry and 37 according to Elaine. Guess that could be anything from several years to several hours! Smile

well...at least you try to answer. I don't know why but in my minds it's something like 2-3 weaks. Cuz in The Serenity Now, Elaine tells jerry : you break up with a girl every week. So maybe, he did the same with Elaine but just a little longer.

In "The Watch", Elaine and Kramer pretend to have sex five times a week. Assuming this is Elaine's standard weekly routine, and that She and Jerry had sex 25-37 times, we can conclude that they were having sex for 5-8 weeks. I'd add a week or so of pre-intercourse time, thusly, I guesstimate that they dated somewhere between 6-10 weeks. Do you ever get down on your knees and thank God that you know me, and have access to my mathematic abilities?

Why didn't you add the "at least three weeks" Elaine suggests to Jerry as the proper time to wait before breaking up with Katya after they'd had sex? Wink Better sharpen that pencil! Smile

Leave it to the C man to put an arrogant foot in an arrogant mouth. Nothing worse than someone blowing their own horn...especially with hot air. hee hee!

why is it that jerry and elaine remained friends when every other woman he meets he doesnt hang out with etc , maybe there was no time limit on how long they dated maybe they just moved on with their lives and never really broke up officially so in fact are still dating???

Um...I don't know about you...but dating usually involves having sex with each other, and not going out and having sex with other people...but maybe that's just me.
