If You Put Out On Your First Date, It Will Probably Be Your Last
I don’t understand why universities do some of the studies they do, but I’m glad they get them done. Thanks to Texas University’s great use of their psychology department, we now have an estimate on how long your relationship is going to last in relation to how fast you have sex with the person you’re dating.
Although most people think that this study was a total waste of time, I actually think it’s useful information! People have been working the theory for years that the third date is the right time to give out free sex, but what if we’ve been mistaken? What if it’s the 5th date? Or the 17th? Well, thanks to Texas U, we don’t have to guess anymore. Here are the results of their study:
First time having sex together: First date. Average relationship length: None.
I guess when your mother tells you should wait to have sex, she has a good point. According to the study, people who sleep together on a first date generally do it not because of the chemistry they have, but because they both know it’s going nowhere and want some action before it’s too late.
First time having sex together: Three weeks after the first date. Average relationship length: 2-5 years.
It’s assumed that people who wait between two weeks and a month to have sex for the first time, ideally at three weeks, have a higher chance of staying together because they have a chance to build an emotional relationship before getting physical.
First time having sex together: Five weeks after the first date. Average relationship length: 5-15 years.
Couples who are willing to wait five weeks to sleep together get the added benefit of the emotional bond that can form in the first three weeks, but they also get more in sync with one another’s movements, which will make their first time in bed more compatible, making you both more comfortable with each other and strengthening the bond you’re already formed.
First time having sex together: Two + months after the first date. Average relationship length: 2 Months.
When couples wait over two months to have sex for the first time, the anticipation usually builds to a point where expectations get too high, and both parties are either so let down by the experience or embarrassed by the way it played out that they go their separate ways shortly after their first encounters.
There you have it! If you’re about to get down and dirty, do it at the right time for a higher chance of success.
