When it comes to dating, I’ve always been super slow. I’ve waited ages before sleeping with new boyfriends. In college, I waited five months to sleep with one boyfriend; and three months to sleep with a later boyfriend. After graduating, I waited more than a year to sleep with a boyfriend I met here in New York.
By the time I met Alex, I was 28 and more confident and bold. Plus, I was head-over-heels for him after our very first date. So, for our third date, I suggested that we “watch a movie” at his apartment. We rented Chinatown, and halfway through, he paused the movie because I wanted to ask a question about the plot….yada, yada, yada, we made waffles the next morning.
I’m curious: How long do you wait to sleep with a new boyfriend or girlfriend? First date? Three dates? Weeks, months, years? Until marriage? Have you ever regretted waiting too long or too little? Spill the beans — and feel free to comment anonymously!
