1) It doesn't matter what's normal or common. It only matters when you want to have sex.
2) I think a lot of this changes as we get older. It's more "practical" for lack of a better word. I guess by that I mean we aren't high energy teens who are love struck and ready to take on the world. It is what it is, and what we are looking for is more low keyed and down to earth. I think it becomes more about companionship, compatibility and some common interests. It's more of an addition to our lives, than the main focus of our life. We already have a life, and have had it for a good while now. So anything else is an addition to that. It's a different perspective on things than when we were 20.
3) I think responses to a question like this are not representative. I think it's far more likely for people actively dating to answer. Some people don't date at all. A significant number of GaG members are virgin. Many have never dated or kissed. They aren't answering, and I suspect more casual daters aren't answering much either. So I think the results are skewed in favor of more sex than is the norm.

My current guy and I slept together the first night. that's pretty much how I roll though. The longest I have waited is a week or two.
