Ever heard of the "third date rule"? I bet you have. It's that lame dating rule of etiquette where you're supposed to wait until the third date to have sex. It's all entrenched in traditional (read: sexist) values, casually disguised as "playing hard to get."
As someone who spent many years never listening to this rule, chasing the D all over town, and then finally deciding to get a boyfriend, I can tell you this practice is a load of shit. I fuck on the first date because it's the only way to live.
I'm not trying to say you HAVE to have sex on the first date if you don't want to, I'm just saying you shouldn't feel guilty should you decide to go for it. It's 2016. Waiting around, soaking up BS, outdated dating code is such a waste of time.
Don't deprive yourself of a good eggplant or cat-heart-eyes emoji, friend. Go ahead and get down on the first date.
Bad sex is not a fun surprise
I get that people want to wait to "get to know someone" before they bang them. If that is your MO, you do you. You should only sleep with someone when you're ready. Whether it's the first date or the 20th date, that's up to you.
