This week’s latest post from staff writer, Stephanie Becerra, delves into the subject of when to have sex in a new relationship. It’s a common question with a not so common answer. What are your thoughts on “the right time”?
When is it the right time to have sex? I’ve spoken to a lot of people about this and have received all types of responses. Some people say right away, others say on the third date, while still others say at least 6 months into the relationship. While 6 months may be a long time to wait, it may be the magic number. As much as we don’t want it to, sex changes things. If you’ve been seeing someone causally for a month and you jump into bed, things change. Either one of you will become more possessive and demand more from a still fledgling relationship or you may just lose interest. I’m not saying that sex is the only mystery in a relationship but it definitely makes it worthwhile if you wait and get to know the person you’re going out with. From personal experience, I’ve found that jumping into bed too soon ruins the dynamic between 2 people and interest is lost soon after. If you’re really serious about someone, wait. There is no hurry. I understand that hormones are a blazing at the beginning of a relationship but waiting will just make it all worthwhile when it finally happens. How long you wait is up to you. Follow your instincts and just do what feels right.
