It is an even bigger milestone when you have both met each other’s parents.
Making it past six months means you are definitely in a relationship and you will have evaluated whether the person you are with has real long-term potential.
Once the crucial six month milestone has passed, daters feel it’s safe to splash out on the relationship by spending the night away (seven months/204 days) or going on holiday together (10 months/298 days).
The two year marker for a relationship is very serious indeed.
Meanwhile, more than a quarter (27 per cent) of Brits wait between one and two weeks to sleep with their partner, while 23 per cent wait one month.
However, three fifths (60 per cent) would introduce their partner to their best friend within the first month.
The one month marker is significant as usually people will have decided if the relationship has a possibility of long-term potential.
If you’ve been dating for a month, you will not know for certain if it can be a long-term deal, but you will normally be able to tell if it’s only going to be short-term. Your first fight will demonstrate whether the two of you can actually have an argument and make up afterwards.
Taking things to the next step, over a quarter (27 per cent) of Brits wait between one and two weeks to sleep with their partner whilst 23 per cent wait one month.
