And online dating expert Benjamin Daly is all for it. Sex and relationship expert Gillian Myhillfor example, believes that, if you're sharing your reationship out, "it can be difficult to know who is the right person. Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist and Psycho-Sexologist Kate Moyle notes that communication breakdown can be a major issue.
But Myhill says conversation is key. Some relationships are open to having multiple relagionship and work well this way, but they work with organisation and rules," she says.
The reality is, while three months may be long enough to know you like someone, if it takes you a longer or shorter period of time to get there then that's totally fine. There's no set-in-stone rules in modern dating.
Our first date was just supposed to be sushi but we ended up spending the entire day into the night together. After that we just kind of knew that we relationhsip meant for each other.
It was a slow burn. We had just broken up with our exes the first time we had sex, and neither of us were really 'over it'. We became friends and saw each other very casually, until I got over the worst of the hurt from my last breakup and realised how wonderful my partner really was.
We've been together for eight years now. Two months later, I asked whether we should talk about being official.
He said he had assumed we were since the exclusivity convo. We had known each other for a month before that.
Been together about five years and we're very happily married. I don't think either of us would've been willing to try out dating one another if that wasn't going to be the case.
I met my boyfriend on Bumble two years ago. We talked for a week, went on our first date, hung out every day for the rest of the week and became official that Saturday.
