Time Out surveyed 11,000 people in 24 cities around the world about dating. The poll concluded that daters should wait for 3.53 dates before having sex. It’s very precise and a little tricky to plan, but that’s what you’ve got. Not everything is easy, particularly romance.

Here’s how you do it: Set a stopwatch during your first three dates, and determine the average. Then divide this number almost in half. Because it’s 3.53, not an even half, so this will require some multiplication and your phone calculator. You can figure it out yourself, you’re an adult, who is maybe about to have sex, so that’s fun for you, so stop complaining about math.
