Relationships: How long should you wait before…


Getting back into the dating game always raises the same questions: when should you move in together? Should you become exclusive? No worries, we’ve got the answers!

 1- Calling back

The appropriate time to call after meeting a man or woman is hotly debated among dating experts. Typically, the ideal time to wait to call is two to four days, though no longer than four to five days. Calling too soon can appear desperate.

 2- Becoming exclusive

Couples usually wait until six to eight dates before they are willing to enter into an exclusive relationship.

 3- Cooking dinner

Typically, dating specialists suggest waiting until the third date to cook someone dinner at home.

 4- Having sex

A recent AOL survey says that 40% of women view an appropriate time frame to wait for sex as being one to three months, while 35% of men think the third date is fine. On average, couples have sex within about four to six dates.

 5- Trading house keys

On average, it takes between 12 to 14 dates before couples will trade house keys.
