The Magical Number 3 In Relationships

By , November 2, 2014 7:38 am

The number 3 turns up quite a bit when it regards the course of a relationship. In fact, many people call it a rule, such as the “3 date rule” for example. Many of these 3’s have probably figured prominently in some of your dating relationships but you may not have noticed at the time. Following are some ways that the number 3 is important when it comes to relationships:

Men don’t call you for 3 days following a first date: This might or might not be true for you. However, it’s a rule to men and it can go either way. He could be just waiting to see if you’re secure or needy. It may also be that he wants to re-evaluate the date before he calls you to ask you out again. So if you haven’t heard from him for 3 days after your date, DO NOT CALL him. He’s not in the hospital from an illness or an accident. He’s just not interested.
Sex on the 3rd date: This is a decision that no one can make except you. While you’ve probably heard this one yourself, you may or may not have had sex on your third date in past relationships. However, each person is different. Use your intuition and instincts when it comes to this. When you think about it seriously, you really don’t know each other well enough after 3 dates to actually have sex.
You should take down your dating website profile after 3 months: When you meet someone through a dating site on the Internet, it’s usually a good idea to remove your profile once the relationship is going steadily for 3 months. In that time, you should talk about it and mutually decide to take down your dating profiles if you’re both comfortable with the relationship. However, if 3 months go by and one of you isn’t ready to remove your profile, it’s time to re-assess the relationship as it could be one sided.
Introduce him to your children after 3 months: If you’re a single parent and you’ve made it this far with the relationship 3’s, it MIGHT be time to introduce your kids to your new man. Of course, it depends on your kids, your man and his kids, if he has any. Don’t rush this part. You don’t want to cause any more disturbances in their lives. If you’re comfortable at 3 months, meet up at public places and see how everyone gets along.
After being together for 3 years, you should get married: If you’ve been together for 3 years, you might already be living together, or at least spending every day with each other if you’re in a good relationship. For dating or engaged couples, it can be a good time to take that next step. However, if your man isn’t interested in getting married by this time, he may never be ready to make a commitment. In that case, it may be time for you to move forward to someone that wants to be married.
