Wij all ask our friends, ‘When did you know your playmate wasgoed The One?’ or, ‘How long did you wait before you kissed?’, so it’s good that Match have researched the nation’s dating journey. If your relationship isn’t falling within thesis timeframes, use them to adjust your expectations. However, one statistic I disagree with, is how long UK daters are waiting to get unwrapped with the lights on. Wij always advise daters to ‘love your imperfections’. Strut your stuff pridefully! The right fucking partner for you will love you for the naked truth, inwards AND out.”
