Have you ever woken up the morning after a one-night stand and wondered, “What was I thinking?!”
I certainly did in my younger days. Today, I have the wisdom of some twenty years in my back pocket. With that, here’s the very best advice I have — and some of my colleagues have shared — on how to make those one-night stands work for you.
First, know that one-night stands are a common part of early adulthood. They’re a great way to let off a little steam, hook up with a hot guy, and expand your sexual repertoire. But they can also be land mines for low self-esteem, shame and judgment.
The way to avoid any negative ramifications from casual hook-ups is to be clear about what you want and why before you engage with someone. Here are 6 things you can do (or not do) to make a fling fun rather than awful.
