Why Having Sex On The First Date Is The Worst Idea Ever

Going to bed with someone too soon confuses your emotions.

First date sex can either be really great, super awkward, or a single occurrence with the person you are doing it with. Really great first date sex is just that ... really great and may even turn into a few more dates that conclude in more great sex. Then, there is super awkward first date sex that you do when you're trying to get over an ex, or do because you really thought the guy/girl you met and talked to all night in the darkly lit bar was super cute and the future love of your life.

OK that was super dramatic, but I have made the first date sex mistake a few times in my dating life, and I have come to the conclusion that it speeds up (an often one-sided) emotional attachment without a mental attachment.
