Dating advice secrets men
Do you really think that the people you love won’t be supportive?
Can you not imagine your friends and family being happy for you?
British daters also see 144 days as the perfect time to embark on a more modern dating milestone: updating their social media relationship status (157 days).
Once the crucial six month milestone has passed, daters feel it’s safe to splash out on the relationship by spending the night away (seven months/204 days) or going on holiday together (10 months/298 days).
Sometimes the reason for a secret relationship is down to the fact that you don’t really want to be together, or know deep down that you shouldn’t be together.
Finally, in terms of when people can expect to find love, the research found that 27 is the average age British daters meet their partners, with women more likely to meet them earlier in life at age 25 than men at 28.
Over a quarter (28 per cent) said they would wait at least six months before leaving their toothbrush round their partner’s house, whilst 40 per cent said the same for being given a drawer at their partners house.
A third of Brits (33 per cent) will have their first conversation about their long-term future within a year, whilst the big commitment milestones of engagement bling, wedded bliss and babies all happen after the first year.
It’s important to try and give friends and family the benefit of the doubt when it comes to secret relationships.
The longer the relationship is kept a secret, the more likely it is that the other significant people in your life will be hurt when they discover the truth.
