So you’re past the first date, and you and your match are moving right along into what we at Match.com like to call the “getting to like you” phase. Based on our findings from the Singles in America study, we put together this dating timeline comprised of all the relationship “firsts” and asked singles to weigh in on the results! Check out when they think these dating and relationship monuments should occur below.
How soon should you call after a first date? When should your date meet the family? Everyone loves to compare notes on what’s normal when it comes to timing, but we’ve finally crunched the numbers to reveal timing norms and outliers on dating firsts! Pulled from our Singles in America data, we uncovered what singles deem as the right timing for dating monuments- everything from when to friend your date on Facebook, when to bring up ex’s (if ever!), to when to meet between the sheets. Just like real relationships, however, nothing is set in stone! As you’ll see in the video below, most singles have varying answers to when such events should occur in the relationship. Check out our findings and what singles said below!
