How long should you wait to kiss when hookup

opinion

September 18, We might live in an age of hookup apps and swiping for partners, but a new study shows for relationship success, couples should wait until date eight to do the deed.

Results showed the average person polled would wait until date eight in an ideal world before taking things to the bedroom.

The study by Groupon found men feel sex is appropriate at any point from date five onward, but women would rather wait until date nine, on average.

Men were nine times more likely to be OK with sleeping together on the first date 9 percent vs. And while 39 percent will still pucker up if a date has gone well, even more 45 percent say a first-date kiss for them will rarely or never happen.

The younger a person is, the more likely they are to smooch at the end of a first date, according to results. But even getting to that stage is far from easy due to the obvious pitfalls of dating: Nearly a third of those polled have had a horrendously awkward time due to the other person eating off their plate, drinking from their glass or telling them what to order.
