There are a variety of milestones that are attained in every relationship, milestones such as when a couple feels comfortable enough to do particular things in each other’s presence- from farting in each other’s presence, to burping, to brushing ones teeth, to eating, dressing up, UN-dressing, sleeping naked etc.
New research from Mattress Advisor has shown at what point people feel comfortable spending the night with their significant other and certain habits they both possess. Whether you’re worried about your morning breath or snoring in your sleep, every couple has been there. Just like the first time you meet each other’s friends and family, the first time you sleep over at each other’s house can be very revealing.
Mattress Advisor surveyed 1,009 people currently in relationships about how long it took them to do certain things in front of their boyfriends or girlfriends, and here are their findings.
It takes men 2.8 months before they feel comfortable sleeping naked with their partner but it takes women a whole month longer at 3.9 months.
When it comes to walking around the bedroom naked, men do it at the 3.1 month mark and 4.5 months for women.
Men feel comfortable wearing a retainer to bed with their partner quite quickly as they tend to do so at 3.4 months.
It takes men 2.8 months before they feel comfortable sleeping naked with their partner but it takes women a whole month longer at 3.9 months. Women take more than double the amount of time to do so as they do it when 8.8 months passes. Women had a slightly harder time than men feeling comfortable with some of these actions.
Making certain smells in bed and going to the bathroom with the door open took nearly 9 months on average.
Using the bathroom with their significant other around took women almost 11 months, which was over 3 months longer than men
It takes men 3.8 months to feel comfortable enough to shower with their partner but it takes women 5.2 months.
On the other side of the sheets, women were more comfortable snooping through their partner’s phone while they slept, according to the findings of the researchers.
Also, leaving a toothbrush at their partner’s house or leaving the bed unmade took women an extra month than men, on average. Women also moved slower when it came to when they let someone stay over at their house
It takes women nearly 4 months, on the average, to feel comfortable having their significant other initially stay over at their house. Men moved at a slightly quicker pace, consenting to sleepovers almost 3 months into their relationships. Many people feel a lot more comfortable having someone sleep over at their house rather than going to someone else’s house to sleep, the research revealed.
It took women over 4 months to be comfortable sleeping at their partner’s place whereas men needed over a month extra to initially sleep at their partner’s house.
