I don't think it's a timing thing as much as a person thing. If you're on a date with the person who's 'the one,' it doesn't matter if you sleep with them on date five or fifty. Lisa Concepcion, love strategist and founder of LoveQuest , offers a different opinion regarding the timing of first-time sex: Instead of putting a set number of dates or timeline on it, figure out what you really want in a potential long term partner — and don't give it up unless those important factors are hit.
When I made him get clear on who his ideal woman was he got really honest. He admitted he wanted a woman who knew how to cook.
While it may be hard, you should have a conversation with the man you are currently dating if you feel like you've had sex with him too early in the relationship. I don't think it's a timing thing as much as a person thing. Compatibility matters and sexual compatibility should be addressed from the onset. Instead of putting a set number of dates or timeline on it, figure out what you really want in a potential long term partner — and don't give it up unless those important factors are hit. So then when should we move a relationship into the bedroom? Many young Generation X'ers tend to move on to the next person if they didn't have sex on the first or second encounter.
He wanted a woman who had a solid group of friends, because he felt that he could tell a lot about a woman by the company she keeps. He had a dog that he had rescued, and found that women would date him but treat the dog as an annoyance. So I told him, 'No sex until she cooks for you, you meet her friends and she hangs out with your dog. Within the first date he learned that she had great friends — most that were educated with good careers.
She too had a dog, and had purposely raised it to be social so it would get along with other dogs. And she loved to cook. When you focus on what's wanted, the law of attraction serves it up. Within the first two weeks he took her out along with their dogs to a park to play and walk around. She offered to bring snacks. They were homemade and delicious.
She even made dog treats! Here two people meet and go through a series of interactions or dates. During these meetings, each will ask questions of each other and share information about him or herself for the purpose of deciding if there is enough chemistry to continue going out. For this reason, each person is likely to continue meeting other people as well.
Having sex during this stage is purely physical. For women who were raised to believe that sex is something you engage in for the purpose of entering into a long term relationship, sex at this stage could be wrought with guilt if the dating doesn't continue.
Stage two is where two people have decided that there is enough interest to continue to getting to know each other. True dating happens during this stage.
Excitement about each other leads to spending increasing amounts of time together. Dating usually lasts for two to three months. Having sex during this stage is more about lust than about love making. This is because the key relationship ingredient of trust is not fully developed and you need trust between two people to make love. For women who have begun to feel an emotional connection within the relationship, sex at this stage could lead her to hurt feelings should the relationship end.
In stage three, each person will make the decision of whether each wants to continue the relationship. This will lead the couple to discuss the topic openly and make an agreement about continuing to date or not.
Dating in this stage moves into something more predictable and is likely to be mutually exclusive. Many young Generation X'ers tend to move on to the next person if they didn't have sex on the first or second encounter. They may find that they don't even like the person, but in the heat of the moment they think nothing of having sex for the instant satisfaction it affords them.
They find it liberating that intimacy doesn't have to be wrapped up with commitment. To be able to walk away after having had sex, without even a backward glance is the new norm. However, if you are a person looking for more than just a fling, regardless of age or experience it is a good idea to develop a set of prudent dating rules before going out on the big date. Know your boundaries before you start dating. Not just the physical but also the emotional boundaries that come with sexual territory.
Emotional wholeness is crucial when making a decision of whether or not to be intimate. Think about your sexual boundaries before your big date.
Women typically enjoy sex more when the emotional connection is highly established and strong. Decide if you value a committed relationship: If you do value commitment then ask yourself if waiting until you get to know your date isn't a better choice than letting your libido rule over your head. Make sure your brain, heart and your sexual organ are in sync and align with your decision before you have sex. Have conversation with yourself before that big date so that you can build that firm resolve and stick to it.
Be aware of the risks and possibilities of STDS: A healthy dose of fear is a good thing. It will give you pause to consider whether or not to take sexual activity to the next level. Concern about STDS and unwanted pregnancies can help create sexual boundaries, particularly if you're not prepared to take the necessary precautions. This is a sure sign and may signal an overall non-readiness to engage in sex. Determine what you would like in a life partner:
