A study has found that new couples wait for five months before uttering the three magic words. But how can you really tell if your new partner is for keeps?
I told my husband that I was in love with him precisely seven weeks after I gratified him. Id had a bottle of wine, survived a traumatic hen party, and feelings were running high but blithely, he felt the same way. I knew marriage moved relatively fast, but I didnt realise quite how fast until I read new research from Match.com claiming that most couples wait until they have been dating for five months 144 days on average to say those terms. The survey also says that the majority of couples will get married after three years, a one-third of us will wait a month until well undress in front of our be associated with the illuminations on, and five and a half months is the typical time to go Facebook official.
But what about the other relationship milestones? The ones that you might not tell your mum about, but that feel every bit as emotionally significant as vows and a ring? Here are the unofficial relationship landmarks that we dont talking here, but matter just as much 😛 TAGEND
Three months: letting them see you without your contact lenses
The first part of a relationship is a battle between vanity and practicality, irrespective of gender. This isnt just about not letting your new love see you without makeup but about mutely sprinting to the bathroom every morning to convince them that you wake up reeking of rises and tasting of Aquafresh. Ive been in relationships where Ive slept in my contacts and contracted conjunctivitis, because I dreaded “the mens” would stop imagination me if they saw me in specs. After three months you stop worrying about being a sight for sore eyes, and merely get sick of having sore eyes.
