After five years, you realize that there are bigger hurdles to overcome."It was a good amount of time that passed before we slept together. We ended up spending that entire weekend together and have been inseparable ever since.Everything happens for a reason, and now I'm marrying my best friend.Alex, 24, Los Angeles Relationship length: 6 years Waited: One night."We were friends first, and beyond the undeniable chemistry, we had both communicated that we wanted to [have sex], so it felt right.No regrets."Stephanie, 25, Brooklyn Relationship length: 1 year, 3 months Waited: Three dates"I knew I liked/trusted him from the moment we met.Natural progression of love, friendship, and comfort with intimacy.

I wish I was less nervous the first time we had sex.

(FWIW, studies suggest that there’s good reason to get it on as soon as possible if you want to cash in on awesome honeymoon-phase sex.)Like we said, there’s no “right” time; deciding when you’re ready to have sex with someone is really a different-strokes-for-different-folks kind of thing.
