We included the location factor to see how these relationships varied across regions as well.
Specifically, we wanted to learn the following: We defined each region as the following states: Midwest Region: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin Northeast Region: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont South Region: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia West Region: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming The results of our survey were very interesting.

These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.Some guys I"ve dated never say I Love You, while others say it within two weeks. I'm thinking more of a fairly new relationship, but am also curious as to the average time before people move in together, talk kids, etc.I guess I'd just like to get an idea of the basic timeline for taking steps within a relationship with someone.I'm wondering about timelines because the reactions from friends and colleagues has definitely erred on the "so soon?" side (it's been nine months so, you know, long enough to have a baby…). "Luckily when we start hating each other I'll have the full Sky package to keep me company", was my response.
