How Long Do You Wait To Have Sex? 5 Couples Tell Their Story

For some, it takes walking down the aisle, for others, it takes one date. Some people consider sex to be a big step for which you should both be prepared while others see it as a deal breaker out the gate and if there is no sexual chemistry, there is no point in wasting each other's time. Not matter how you feel about it, the decision to sleep with someone for the first time is a very personal one. To find out more, Glamour asked their readers to spill the beans on when they first slept with their current partner and why. Here are 5 responses: "The first night we met!" says one 29-year-old woman who's been dating her boyfriend for about two months. "I won't blame it entirely on the amount of alcohol I had, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't play a part. We met out at a bar, then he and several of my friends came back to my place to continue drinking when the bars closed. He wasn't in any condition to go home after that, so he spent the night in my bed. Maybe it wasn't the ideal first time, but it worked out just fine!" "We waited until the ninth time we went out," says a 23-year-old woman who's now living with her boyfriend of 16 months. "He definitely tried to make it happen sooner! And while I'd slept with guys a lot faster than that in the past, there was something special happening between us, so I wanted to wait. I wanted to keep him coming back!" "It was about a month," says another 29-year-old woman who's been married nearly five years. "I was so into him, but I was also nervous about taking that step. At the time, I was just 21 years old and he was going to be my first! Once we slept together, though, we basically didn't leave his bedroom for a week. It was awesome." "We slept together on our third date," says a 27-year-old married woman of two years. "It had nothing to do with the third date rule, I promise! I don't believe in those rules. That's just how it happened naturally for us." "Two months!" says a 25-year-old woman who's been dating her guy for four months. "That probably seems like forever, but I was fresh from a breakup and just didn't want to get close in that way to a new guy just yet. I think waiting really helped me feel more confident when we finally did." What about you? Feel free to share your story and your reasons with us! Do you follow us on Instagram?
