Dating is a tricky business, but if you're wondering when you're gonna meet the perfect guy or gal, this research, takes out a little bit of the guesswork.
So, how do you know if he’s “the one” or not? That’s something only you can truly tell, but there are a few sure-fire signs that you’ve met your soulmate – we’ve rounded those up here, FYI.
Now though, a new study has revealed the age you’re most likely to meet your soulmate, and the results may surprise you. Apparently, the average age people meet their life-long partner is 27, according to the survey, carried out by dating website Match.com – that is, 25 for females and 28 for males.
The dating website interviewed over 2,000 British guys and gals about their love lives, asking everything from when they became Facebook official to when they first met their partner.
According to the research, *drumroll please* the “L” word usually comes after about five months of dating, closely followed by the first big argument at about six months in. When it comes to sleeping with a partner, the average amount of time to wait is one to two weeks. They also found that most people waited six months until they were given their own drawer at their SO’s home.
Kate Taylor, a Match.com dating expert, said: “While each relationship moves at its own pace, daters are often reassured by comparing their experiences with others.
“We all ask our friends, ‘When did you know your partner was The One?’ or, ‘How long did you wait before you kissed?” she said.
Kate added: “If your relationship isn’t falling within these time frames, use them to adjust your expectations.”
