Quite frankly, we waited until we could be alone together in romantic circumstances. We were 14 when we started dating, 15 when we started “fooling around” and having oral sex, and 17 when we had sex.

Fooling around? About a week. Sex?  About three weeks.

Reason? I just wanted to see if I was into him enough to give it up.  Gosh, I sound awful.

We’ve been together for nearly 7 years, btw.

We waited about 2 months–he was my first and only, and I’ve never regretted it!  At the time, it seemed like we’d waited forever, but when I say “2 months” that seems like no time at all!  Oh well…worked out!

Yeah, I’m in the three dates camp. And I forced the third date by just showing up at his house. 🙂

Almost 21 months. We waited for religious reasons. We were each other’s firsts.

LOL @tea and @hotchild… i was going to say a combo of both your responses… (i swear i’m not E-ZZZZZ) lols.

 we met the day after fourth of july a tuesday (my first day at work)… went out as a group that friday… first “date” that following monday… and we fooled around all week.

sex – we waited three weeks?…i think he could’ve held out longer, i just couldn’t wait anymore.

we saw each other almost everyday (literally) if that makes up for any s*utty behavior on my part. 😛

(i should note, Fiance is only my 3rd partner) first was bf of almost 5 years, the second was a one time deal with my “best guy friend” after the break-up, and Fiance third!

We waited about 3 months.  Not really because we wanted to, but because we were long distance at the time.  With him, things just seemed right so I didn’t feel bad for wanting to try it sooner!

Darling Husband is my second one. We waited about a month after we were officially a couple, but we had been spending a lot of time together for three months by then, and knew each other for 9 months.

With the first I waited 6 months; we had been friends for two years (friends meaning I was madly in love with him and he was too but we were too shy to do anything about it).

ummm…second date?  😀  We had met a month before, talked regularly, and ended up having sex two weeks after our first date.  I have to say, our second date turned into an entire weekend.  It was so worth it.

Fiance and I are in our mid/late 20s, so the “waiting” boat had already set sail for us! haha but we waited at least a couple of months and had one or two sleepovers (just sleeping) before we did the deed. It was nice to wait a while… We wanted to be more emotionally intimate before we were physically intimate. and we wanted to take things slow.

Its been my experience that all of my married girlfriends waited longer to be intimate with their now-hubbys than they had with other bf’s in the past… worked well so far!

My husband and I were eachother’s first.  We waited over a year before being intimate (we were also long distance at the time).
