Sex after one month of dating
By Courtney Edwards As a Black man, embarking on the relatively difficult task of finding a soulmate, I am consistently asking myself this one question: How soon, after meeting someone, should I become sexually involved with her? Was I just looking through the scope of rose-colored lenses? And after the deed was done, my ability to discern whether I really liked her because I felt this strong personal connection and affinity, was greatly compromised.
"There's really no formula that I've encountered," says 28-year-old Andrew Reymer, a single resident of Baltimore, Maryland.Furthermore, waiting to become sexually involved with someone may not only contribute to a longer, more fulfilling relationship, but it could potentially keep you healthier in the end.Sexually transmitted infections, or STIs, are a real risk.I just had to make sure that I was sexually involved with the person because I liked them and not simply liking the person because I was sexually involved.Again, if the goal is finding a person to be with for the unforeseeable future, then what’s the hurry? Studies show that the longer couples wait until having sex the more positive the outcome of their relationships.
