Is Timing Everything?

In the early days of a relationship, we're all on our toes, anxious to avoid anything that might threaten our fragile new love. We over analyze the meaning of every possible decision, on both our own parts and those of our potential partner.

One of the biggest - read: most anxiety-inducing - decisions is when to first get naked together. If you get intimate too early, will she think you're a player, just out for a quick score? If you wait too long, will he get bored and move on?

We wondered: when it comes to sex, is timing everything?

If the guy likes you and takes you seriously, he likes you and takes you seriously, whether you wait two weeks or two hours to have sex.

Sure, a serious relationship might come out of first-few-nights nookie, but let's face it, it's probably not that often. Isn't it better to take it slow and see how things develop?
