I always knew that one-night stands weren’t for me, so I surprised myself when one day, I decided to test that theory out. I was having a dry spell and missing the physical intimacy you get with someone you find attractive, so I started surfing the online dating platforms when I ran into the man I mentioned in my first post (I could have never been able to do it with a stranger) He was the one who had said he could not feel a connection with someone unless he slept with them. When I found him online, I was thinking that he would be a good candidate for a one-night stand because I did not want something serious and not wanting something serious was his motto. He also had talked a big game about how good he was in bed when we were dating, so I thought he would be a good choice. Suffice it to say; I don’t know how to pick a good candidate for a one-night stand because it did not go well at all, and it was not an experience I would want to try again.
Even though I knew deep down that one-night stands weren’t for me, I am glad I did it because I am no longer curious about it, and I know myself better for it. I need to have a deep connection and know someone well before the physical part of the relationship can take place.
Have you had a one-night stand even though you knew it probably wasn’t your thing? Did it change your mind about them? Did anything unexpected happen?
