He knows my odd little quirks, and can read my moods, and we’re completely comfortable around one another. Why Six Months Is No Longer Trivial At the weekend, I went to Go Ape with a group of The Rugby Boy’s best friends, and one of them introduced me to her brother-in-law.‘This is TRB’s new girlfriend’, she said, without a thought. It’s only the third time I’ve met her, and for all I know, the last time TRB saw her brother-in-law, maybe he had a different girlfriend. because after 6 months together, things don’t feel all that new at all.But that’s tricky because gals are torn over tab sharing: Some are reluctant to pay while others are adamant about their ability to pay.Our Money, Sex & Love survey illustrates that the question of who pays has gotten complicated.And suddenly being in my thirties adds a different spin to the relationship.The Six Month Mark The thing about being with someone for 6 months, is that it feels like a relatively long time. We spend 4 or 5 nights a week together, out of convenience, as well as comfort, and in the last 6 months, The Rugby Boy has become my best friend.We were both 'sure' it was going to be forever.
But it’s becoming a courtesy for gals to offer after that. But tossing them an offer throws them into a fool’s game: If guys accept or refuse, they risk offending gals.
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 Older You Get, The Quicker Stuff Moves I’ve commented before about some of my original 30 Dates, and just how much their lives have changed in the 18 months since the challenge ended. One guy who asked me out during the challenge (but who I turned down, because I knew him already) even has a child now! And so, whilst 6 months may seem rather ‘new’ when you’ve been with your husband over 10 years, when you’ve been single (and picky!
) in your thirties, getting to the 6 month marker with someone is a rather big deal.
