Every woman has a different set of dating rules for the first date.
Who should drive? How long do you wait to kiss?
And, of course, how far should I let him go on the first date?
In a recent on-line survey, Dateable.com, an Internet-based romance community, asked women a series of questions on dating and what it takes for men to "get lucky".
First, Dateable.com asked:
How long does it take for you to get comfortable enough to have your first kiss?
About 50% answered within the first 2 dates [actual statistic: 47.5%]. What happened to the remaining respondents?
They say that it "depends on the person." What's it take for women to go further?
A full 28% say they are willing to "sleep with a man on the first date" and 41% say they are willing to go all the way the second time around.
The remaining 30% say they would wait at least "a couple of months" before they slept with a man.
How do women decide who'll get lucky on the first date?
Learn a few jokes.
Surprisingly, sense of humor ranked as the number one determinant in getting lucky within the first few dates (38%).
Financial success ranked second (26%). And, physical came in third position (20%).
A variety of other answers from "scent of a person, cleanliness and good breath" came in at 16%.
