Dating rules how long to wait

If a man called on the way home I’d think he was a bit too keen.

It’s nice when a guy likes me, but not so much that he won’t leave me alone.

If someone’s that easy to impress, they’re not much of a catch!

And if I had to do it all over again, I'd have gotten the whole virginity thing out of the way A LOT SOONER.

I think I've had my fill of short-term relationship experience.

Now, I'm ready to wait till something more serious comes along.

However, very recently, I had a bad experience after having sex too early on--after dating a very mature 25-year-old guy for less than a month.

Before we met, he'd made it perfectly clear that he wasn't looking for a serious relationship; and after we met, he told me he's planning on leaving New York once he finishes up grad school next year ... Regardless, I thought I could handle having a short-term thing with him (perhaps in part because I was so intoxicated by his ridiculously sexy body). But shortly thereafter, saying he wanted to save both of us the pain of getting more deeply involved in an affair that would have to end before long (huh? It felt very abrupt, and it was very painful for me.

So eventually, I decided, eh, what the hell, I'd give in to his demands! Studies have shown that the bonding hormone, oxytocin, gets released in both men and women when they're touching, holding hands, kissing or snuggling.
