Most Women Will Kiss How Many Men Before Finding the One?2comments
According to science, the answer is 15. Apparently some “study” by eHarmony (maybe, I couldn’t really find it’s source) has discovered the average number of men women will kiss before “The One.” Excuse me?
I hate to break it to science but if they mean kissing and not sex, sorry ladies, but you’re going to kiss way more than 15 guys before you land on the guy who’ll you’ll kiss for the rest of your life (amiright?) I feel like I’d kissed 15 guys by the time I was a college sophomore, and I was kind of a prude for a long time. Didn’t anyone ever play Spin the Bottle, or 7 Minutes in Heaven?
EHarmony surveyed a bunch of British women, so we’ll assume we are very similar to British women – we all love Downton Abbey – so similar enough? But here is the breakdown of averages, according to this study:
THE JOURNEY TO ‘THE ONE’
Number of relationships – Women 7; Men 8
Disaster dates – Women 4; Men 4
Blind dates – Women 2; Men 3
Stood up on a date – Women 1; Men 2
Online dates – Women 2; Men 3
Number of kisses – Women 15; Men 16
Sexual partners – Women 7; Men 10
One-night stands – Women 4; Men 6
Partners lived with – Women 1; Men 1
Falling in love – Women 2; Men 2
Is it just me, or do these results sound ridiculous? It’s done by an online dating company, but the average woman goes on 2 online dates? I guess they aren’t projecting a booming year in 2014. Obviously, this includes tons of people that haven’t dated online, but still… women average 4 one-night stands out of a total of 7 sexual partners? This just all sounds weird and fishy to me. At the end of the day, I think these studies are fairly lame. When you boil dating and relationships down to a number on a page, it’s practically meaningless. However, in reading this study, I did start to tally up my own numbers. Maybe that’s the fun of it. Enjoy!
