Dating and sex rules
That’s why taking some time to get to know someone is often the best way of ensuring you have no regrets when you do decide to sleep with them.
Netflix and chill is fun and all, but don’t ever invite someone you hardly know over to your house, or go over to theirs.Whether your relationship is casual, exclusive or headed somewhere serious, it’s good to know that you’re on the same page as your partner before you take things into the bedroom.This is especially important in the early stages of dating when one, or both of you, might still be dating other people.This shared awkwardness can often feel more intimate than the sex itself; these are the moments that you really let your guard down and let your partner see the real you.If you’re still at that stage of dating where you’re presenting an almost perfect picture of yourself – with barely a hair out of place – then perhaps stop to think whether you’re really ready to take things to the next level.If you have a five-date rule but end up sleeping with someone on the second date, you don’t want to spend time beating yourself up about it.
And what if you have great chemistry with someone and you want to have sex, should you deny yourself?
We don’t want to believe that someone we’re on a date with will slip us any drugs, but it does happen.
Don’t accept a drink from your date unless you open it yourself or watch it being prepared by a bartender.
Similarly, you should never have sex with a new partner because you feel under pressure to do so.
Only take the next step when you feel ready and it is a decision that both of you have made together.
So, when it the best time to become intimate with a new partner and will the timing effect your future relationship?
