Having sex within the first few dates is somewhat common, but I recently dated a guy pretty seriously and decided to wait — not just for a few weeks, but a whole six months. The result? We never actually slept together and eventually broke up… but it had nothing to do with sex! I had spent a lot of time in my 20s completely ignoring my intuition when it came to guys, so I learned the hard way how important that voice is.
This is when most couples reach every relationship milestone
At some point, you settle into a routine, you might bicker a little more often, and you may have to work through some challenges. When do these little changes usually start to pop up? Right around the 3-month mark in your relationship—maybe give or take a month or two. You know those butterflies in your stomach we just mentioned?
After three months with someone, you begin to settle down. You begin to relax some. You let down your guard, you act more like who you really are.
