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!
