Navigating the evolving dating scene is difficult enough-never mind the inevitable question of when to take a new relationship to the next level. While it's different for every couple, it's always intriguing to see new perspectives, especially when you're active on the dating scene. Users on Reddit were just as intrigued, starting a thread about first-time sex with a new partner. Below, read up on just how long five different heterosexual men wait before having sex in a new relationship, as originally reported by Huffington Post UK:

"If I'm investing into something that is more intimate than 'just' sex, I can't really put a time on it. Maybe three months, six months, who knows. If it's just a casual relationship and we're not both having orgasms within a week… Mucho problems."

"One to three dates.В I'm very comfortable with sex and want the same in my partners. If we're not on the same page, I have a busy life and don't have time to spend with someone that's not compatible."

"Probably a month at most, but I'd have to REALLY like her."

"I'm married now, but my wife and I had sex the first time after only a few dates. We were in our late 30s and both felt that sex wasn't as big a deal as it was when you're younger."

"I've been waiting over a year and a half in my current relationship. My girlfriend is a virgin and made the decision to wait until marriage. So I'm in this for the long haul."
