I was married to the love of my life a little less than four years, but was devoted and loyal to him for ten before that—basically for all of my twenties. I was so in love—and in lust—that I never felt like I was, well, missing out. While I totally understood sleeping with someone you weren't in love with, I never could quite grasp the idea of having that someone be a person you met less than 24 hours or maybe even two prior. Now, don't go labeling me as an ignorant, unaware, or sexually timid woman who wasted her early adulthood.
Don't Worry: Catching Feelings After a One-Night Stand Is Super Normal
Ten Signs Your One-Night Stand Is More Than That | Thought Catalog
I'm all for getting some casual ass after a night out. There is nothing wrong with a one-night stand. But you've gotta admit, one-night stands are a tricky business even for the most seasoned casual-sexxers among us. On one hand, you scored some tail.
One-night stand: what, why, and where
One night stands are a gamble: a great one is a memorable flash-in-the-night and extremely good gossip fodder among friends , but a bad one is a complete waste of time and valuable sleep. And without a real Human Connection to bind them to your memory, mediocre one night stands fall into the deep pit of forgotten things that you remember only occasionally, when something else reminds you of them. Or when the guy you hooked up with shows up as a "person you may know" on Facebook a few weeks later. We met when I was in Brussels, and the whole thing felt like it was out of an art house film. We had this amazing connection, but she knew I was going to be leaving the next day.
Casual hookups are the supersized fries of dating. But oh boy, sometimes nothing else will hit the spot. These days more women are on board. Last year, nearly half of women in a Match.
