Many people believe that having sex on the third date is the norm, but not according to a new survey.
In fact, it has been revealed that 32 per cent of women wait three weeks or until their fifth date before jumping into bed with a new partner.
Of the 2,225 people surveyed by sex toy firm LoveHoney, women were also discovered to be more reserved than men with 15 per cent saying they would have sex on a first date compared to 26 per cent of men.
And even less women were keen to go the whole hog on the second date with only 13 per cent saying they would have sex as opposed to 16 per cent of men.
One thing both sexes seemed pretty keen on though was kissing – 72 per cent of both men and women said that they would be happy to kiss on a first date.
But what might surprise people is that men are actually more likely to be the romantic ones.
A quarter of the men questioned by the company said that they first mentioned love in the first month of dating, whereas only 16 per cent of women did.
In fact, women are happier to wait until the fourth month to tell their new partner that they loved them.
And three quarters of men are would say that they loved their girlfriend first whereas only 44 per cent of women would make the same move.
Men also like to introduce their partners to their parents quicker, making the move around the eighth date, despite the fact that only 27 per cent of women would be willing to meet them at this stage of the relationship.
Men also change their Facebook status to indicate they are in a new relationship far more quickly than women.
Just over three out of ten men will do this after eight dates, compared to just 27 per cent of women.
Lovehoney co-owner Richard Longhurst said the survey shows that men ‘like to get a move on’ – not just when it comes to sex, but commitment too.
‘They are keener to tell their partner they love them but also to outwardly recognise this commitment by changing their Facebook status and introducing their loved one to their parents,’ he said.
‘Women are a little more wary – preferring to take their time before revealing similar levels of commitment.
‘I think what is encouraging is that British men’s stiff upper lip seems to have disappeared completely.
‘They are prepared to be far more open about their feelings and tell their partner their true feelings. That has to be good thing.’
