Occasionally intense chemistry is overwhelming, and it doesn’t mean your relationship is doomed if you did end up sleeping together on the first date. But when you get intimate too quickly, you may feel like you know each other better than you actually do, Chlipala says.
The fix: You want a girl who wants to spend time with you inside and outside the bedroom. But if you hop right to the sack, you may be sending the wrong message. If things moved too quickly right off the bat—or if you're trying to break a bad habit of sex early on in the dating process—forget the drinks and dinner scene. Touring a museum, going on a hike, or riding bikes around the city are all fun ways to suss out if you’re compatible when clothes are on.
