You may be ashamed to say it but let’s face facts: One night stands are becoming more and more common these days. You may not even be going out looking for one and it may still be the result of your good, relationship-minded intentions. So, what do you do after a one nighter? Can you really turn it into something serious? The answer is yes, if you follow these rules.
There’s no more awkward a moment than waking up next to someone you just had sex with that you don’t even know. It was a one night stand. What do you say? If you want more than just that one night of sex, you need to address the awkwardness with some humor and make your intentions clear. Take her out to breakfast. See if you match up for more than a night and put in the effort. It may result in exactly what you were hoping for!
2. Follow through
If what you really want is a relationship, then you need to do more than just say it. You have to follow through. What does that mean? That means actually dating this girl and letting her into your heart. If you can’t shake the idea that she’s just a one night stand, then she will never be anything more than that in your heart either.
3. No sex
The worst thing you can do in this situation is keep having more sex. If this is going to be a real relationship, it can’t just be about sex. Jumping back into bed only takes you back to the one night stand. Besides, if you want a relationship, don’t treat her like a booty call or ongoing fling. Respect her and yourself – and control your urges.
Sometimes it may seem like getting into a relationship is almost impossible. That gets even harder when you wake up next to a one night stand. But if you follow these rules, you’ll be able to take a moment of bad judgment and turn it into something much more.
