Why Jumping Right Into Bed On Your First Date Is A Bad Idea

We all know that the first date is always the most important date. After all, it's pretty much the foundation of a new relationship. Sometimes, it goes so well that you two feel really connected and want to take things up a notch. This the moment when you'll have to make a choice: Do you risk your budding relationship by having sex or wait until you've gone on a few more dates?

When Matchmakers Paul C. Brunson, Peggy Wolman, Jasbina Ahluwalia, Michelle Jacoby, and Marla Martenson talk about why deciding to jump right into bed after a first date is a bad idea, we couldn't help but agree. First off, not only will having sex so early on leave a lasting impression on your date that you can never take back, it will possibly open you up to getting hurt. If casual sex is not what you were looking for, doing this could end up emotionally draining you. What's worse is that it can also change you. It's important to be prepared to deal with whatever the aftermath is. Even though there are some studies that say otherwise, it's hard to decipher what your date's true intentions were if he is so willing to get to the physical without the emotional.
