One Night Stand Rules

Have you ever woken up on a strange bed one morning and thought, ‘How on earth did I get here?’ That is something that may happen not just once or twice, but maybe a couple of times. One night stands though hardly ever spoken about have their own hidden rules. Knowing these rules will spare you from suffering that small heart attack come the next morning, or even days later.

First, remember that there only has been one Pretty Woman movie, and chances that you will be as lucky as her are close to nil. Rule number one therefore is to always let a friend know where you’re heading to and with whom. So many people have fallen into traps of meeting someone, going to bed with him and later vanishing in to thin air.

Meeting that special someone of the night is not just an impromptu thing; but something that has to be well planned. While planning, you need to ensure that you look and smell good. Therefore, take the initiative of dressing in some nice underwear, shaving and treating yourself with some nice perfume.

No matter how hot in the moment you are, or how tipsy you may be, always use protection. Never expect that the other person will have some for it’s your responsibility to take charge of your body. It may sound to be a lot of work but, it’s a lot better than getting that phone call telling you that you should get tested.

One night stands are only meant to last a night, so never take in a stranger into your apartment for the night, for they may come back knocking the day after. In case this is unavoidable, ensure that they do not spend the night. If they do, don’t be harsh on them. Before driving them out of the door, offer them at least a cup of water or coffee before driving them out. Since they had the courtesy of having their mouth all over your genitals just a few hours before, extending this hand of courtesy won’t kill anyone.

A lot of people freak out when they remember that they have to do a walk of shame. Just remember that people perceive you the way you want to be perceived. Since you are from having a great time, you should flaunt about it and start doing a walk of fulfilment rather than a walk of shame. Lastly, don’t exchange numbers. This one needs no further explanation!
