Dating after one night stand

Like the old adage that as a woman you’re just going to lie there crying silently while being finger-banged by someone who hasn’t cut their nails in months.See also: the idea that they’ll never lead anywhere.There are a few surefire ways to get revenge on an ex.And if you don’t want to go the burning their shit and slashing their tires route, there’s always the subtle shade throwing.One night stands should not be given that much attention by others who are not involved.

Well, probably because “dating” means different things to different people.

It's a familiar scene: a thriving nightlife, a club or maybe a wine bar where glasses are clinking and singles are mingling before drifting off into the shadows — two by two.

It's not the perfect picture of romance, but when you're caught up in the moment, a warm body feels like a fair substitute for love, right?

Public opinion is a moot point, because it is neither helpful nor necessary.

It only comes out that way because men are crucified for not wanting a relationship, while women are stigmatized for the very same reason. If a person chooses to do it out of pleasure and not love, they should not be judged for it.

But actually, ACTUALLY one night stands can turn into relationships more regularly than you might think.

According to one study, 27% of respondents had had a one-night stand that led to a relationship. Lydia: I was at uni, and we went on a random night out.

So when I met someone in real life, or IRL as the millennials call it, I was shocked. I feel like I’ve been dating since the dawn of time. Have you ever met someone where time and space stops? We had instant chemistry, instant attraction, instant depth, and we couldn’t keep our hands off each other.

I’ve had countless setups, am active on the apps and even had a stranger in the steam room try to introduce me to his daughter (yes this happened). In the cab ride to his condo in West Hollywood at the end of the night, while intoxicated, I thought ... I woke up in his penthouse the following morning, wondering where I was.

He surprised me, texting and calling that night, and the next day, and the day after that.

One random encounter with a stranger, colleague or friend that turns into a steamy night of passion. Statistically, men are more likely to initiate one night stands.
