7 Women Share How Long They Waited to Have Sex with Their Significant Others

Having sex with someone for the first time is a pretty big deal. But for many women, waiting 'til the third date is silly talk. Nowadays, we all know that a one-night stand can morph into marriage and a six-month relationship without sex can end in the blink of an eye. The outcome of your rendezvous is ultimately a crapshoot, which is why it's super important to listen to your heart and not your vagina.

Here, seven women share how long they waited before knocking boots with their partners, and whether or not they'd do it differently today:

"I waited six dates (about five weeks) before sleeping with my now-husband. The number 'six' was chosen completely arbitrarily, but possibly because it was double what the go-to number was at the time (the famous 'three-date rule'). Generally, if I saw long-term potential with someone, I would wait six dates. Years later, my husband admitted that while he knew it didn't make sense, there was something very appealing about my making him wait." —Megan J.

"My boyfriend and I slept together the night we met, and I honestly wish we'd waited. We jumped right into a relationship for all the wrong reasons. He was rebounding and I was tired of being single. But we agreed that, even if we weren't messes that night, we still would've ended up together; we just would've taken things slower. We've been together for five years now!" —Andrea H.

"I met my husband on the first day of college, and we slept together the second time we hung out, which was a few days later. I didn't think I'd met my future husband at the time, but 13 years later we're married and have a baby on the way, so it all worked out!" —Jennifer L.

"My boyfriend of eight years and I waited a year after we started dating to have sex. It sounds extreme now, but when we met freshman year of college, we were both virgins. I wasn't in a rush to get it on, and he never pressured me. Finally, at a friend's birthday party, I asked one of the girls for a condom and hopped in a cab to his place. I texted him, 'I've got a condom. Let's do this!' And we did. The fact that he didn't question my judgment told me that he was more than ready. I barely remember it, but I have no regrets." —Elizabeth O.

"I met my boyfriend as I was leaving a restaurant and he was entering. There was an insta-connection, and I asked for his number. We met up to watch a game and talked until the restaurant closed at 2 a.m. The next day, we had lunch together, which led to sex. We've been together for five years." —Rhonda B.

"I've been with my partner for 16 years, and we waited about two weeks before we slept together. However, I didn't spend the night after the first time. Since mornings left me more vulnerable with no makeup and bedhead, we didn't wake up together until the third or fourth time we had sex. It didn't help that we were in college and had roommates." —Mia G.

"My partner and I met at the gym, and he asked me out while I was hanging upside down in my gravity boots! We went out that night on a super-casual date and ended up back on his boat. I silently debated whether or not to sleep with him. He was an amazing kisser, so I ultimately decided to go for it. We've been together for 12 years now." —Sally M.
