One-night-stands can be the most amazing or the most embarrassing experience of one’s life and these casual encounters are becoming more and more common these days with increase in popularity of dating apps like tinder. Some people enjoy the uncertainty and no-flings attached nature of these stands while some end up having a bad night. I, for one, had a great night because I followed some fool-proof tips on how to act before and after the encounter.
I am sharing the top 7 rules you should keep in mind while going for a one-night stand to head out of it keeping your dignity and sanity intact:
1 . Get to Know a little bit about Person Before….
Don’t be too savage sleeping around with anyone.
I know that being too interested and personal can potentially become a problem in cases of quick flings but make sure you’ve idea about the person who going to share bed with.
Like, you can use Tinder or similar apps. You can read their bio and get to know about them.
2. Always know what your exit excuse is.
Do not just scurry out of the house in the morning after the act is over.
Plan a graceful exit by thinking of an excuse beforehand so that you do not fumble in front of him. My favourite excuse is that I have an early shift or I have to pick up groceries before I head home.
This makes me feel very responsible and sensible in front of the other person.
3. Have a conversation about what your partner likes and wants.
Please do not go forcing yourself and your demands on to your partner before you understand your partner’s likes and dislikes first.
This can make you come across as more of a molester than a lover. If she likes it gentle, go gentle.
If she is adventurous, try new things. Do not create a mess of body fluids if your partner is not ok with it.
4. Do not be creepy and behave nicely and respectfully.
Be nice. That’s one of the things you never do even in an open relationship.
Offer him or her a breakfast in the morning out of courtesy. Do not behave creepily and ask for unnecessary information that has nothing to do with you or this one night stand.
Do not ask about job locations, exes, family details, or use her phone or laptop without permission. Do whatever you both like but treat each other with respect and dignity even if it’s just for one night.
5. Do not pester him or her for their number the next morning.
Do not ask for your partner’s number if she is not willing to share it.
If she does, please do not test the number in front of her to see if she has given you her real contact details.
One night stands are meant to be for one night and the person who had it with might want to end things there even if you want to take them further.
6. Do not lie about your name or means of living.
Lying about what you do for a living or your name is one of the snarkiest things you can do on a one-night stand.
Make sure that you remain honest to a certain degree even when you know it is just for one night.
I am not telling you to share your most intimate and exact contact details but just your name and job description.
7. Always wear protection and do not do drugs before a date.
Wearing a condom shouldn’t be enlisted on this list but sadly a few people need to remember this as a rule of thumb. Always wear protection so that you and your date do not have to worry about infections or worse things later. Also, do not drink heavily or do hard drugs before the one-night as this can not only make your partner uncomfortable but also leave you with your own issues to deal with like difficulty in getting an erection.
8. Do not get friendly with his or her family members or pets.
The last thing your date wants to see you doing is getting friendly with his or her family or cuddling a pet.
They have opted for a one-night stand for a reason and that they do not want a relationship out of that night. Be courteous but do not get over-friendly and leave when it is the right time to go.
So these were my one night stand etiquette and tips to help you learn how to conduct yourself on fling nights. After all, you never know which night turns into a loving and nurturing relationship because of your nice behaviour!
