Dating to relationship how long
Obviously, the conversation itself and the timing of it are extremely important.
But when it comes to “the talk”, is there a difference between how long men think you should wait versus women?
Once I did get serious, I expected it to take a lot longer to connect with someone, but the timing was just right.” —Kristin Canning is the health editor at Women's Health, where she assigns, edits and reports on emerging health research and technology, women's health conditions, psychology, mental health, wellness entrepreneurs, and the intersection of health and culture for both print and digital.
I’ve been here too many times to mention but I’ve never quite known if there was an unwritten rule for how many dates before relationship talk should make it into conversation.
We spend weeks using memorized and mirror-practiced pickup lines, months remaining in undefined grey areas, and many of us have even put off the idea of “the one” in favor of just having a good time for years.
But the truth is that when we actually do find someone we’d like to date seriously, everything changes, and just like that it’s time to talk about being exclusive.
There’s nothing worse than being in a new relationship only to realize that he/she is still swiping right on Tinder.Plus, to complicate things even more, there are many people out there that expect exclusivity from the start.In Europe, for example, casual dating or dating multiple people at once is looked down upon and very uncommon.Surprisingly, 75% of women thought you should wait at least a few months while 43% of men thought it would only take a couple of good dates. But a Google Consumer Survey conducted by Mic of 3,058 people last February found that the most common timetable for having the exclusive talk was just less than four weeks.Even more surprisingly, 45.2% said they dated their significant other less than a month before becoming exclusive and 28% of respondents said it took them one to two months.
