What to expect at 2 months of dating
One of the myths around long distance relationships is that they are always or more likely to fail than other kinds of relationships.
However, there is actually no evidence to suggest that this is true.
What’s more important, your insecurity and ADD or being in a relationship with the person you’re currently hanging out with?
I’ve said before in this column that sometimes, where love is concerned, there are no rules.
Non-marital relationships are not the only ones in which long distance may be a factor.
The study also sheds some light on that all-important six-month mark, suggesting that this is when three major relationship milestones take place: the revealing of one’s imperfections (173 days), the first argument (170 days) and when most parental introductions take place.
Once the crucial six-month milestone has passed, daters feel it’s safe to splash out on the relationship by spending the night away (seven months/ 204 days) or jetting off on holiday together (ten months/ 298 days).
It also takes us longer to hold hands with than to kiss a new partner, with 31 per cent claiming they would snog their date immediately, and 34 per cent revealing they would wait between one and two weeks to holds hands.
Meanwhile, more than a quarter (27 per cent) of Brits wait between one and two weeks to sleep with their partner, while 23 per cent wait one month.
