Well, I've been playing for 5 and a half years now. My fingers still skin a little tiny bit every now and then, but it can also be because I have a nail-biting habit.

I don't bleed anymore like I used to the first year and it's only painful after long periods of playing, but it's not so severe.

Depends on how much you play and how fast you play I guess. But no not really. Though callouses will build up, they will be torn by the strings cutting against them.

I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...

mine did for about the first 8 months... i would also play a lot. just make sure to not get your fingertips wet when showering. you should also try to take a break for a few days to let your fingers heal up. try doing that afew times and everything should be good.

i've never bled, and most of my playing is done on acoustic, but it might just be that you have thin skin?

Its probably different for everyone, but I only skinned for a few months and I never bled.(although that could be bass strings more wear your fingers than cut into them) I did have some blisters though. So yeah, different for everyone.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Never shower --> play guitar. Bends are killer. I would know.
