Are you feeling like Samantha in Sex in the City? Can you count the number of one-night stands you’ve had in the past? Can you recall any of their names? Do you and your friends act like the Gossip Girls when it comes to sharing details about your recent sexapade with Mr. or Ms. One Night Stand?
I could not wait to write this post about a friend’s recent one-night stand. It has to be one of the funniest stories I’ve heard in a long time. Afterward I started seriously thinking about one-night stands and the toll it can have on a person and how it could possibly become the blueprint for bad dating habits.
I am truly starting to wonder if one-night stands leave behind an everlasting impression on a person or distract and change a person’s views on love, sex and intimacy because of a one night? Our next post will focus on these burning questions.
Nevertheless, you have to love your friends for the insane things they say or do when they are dating. Just the other day my friend phoned me because he had something important to tell me. “What could possibly be so important on a Saturday at 9:00 a.m.?” Will you believe he was calling to tell me about his recent one-night stand and how embarrassed he was?
It was Friday night and while attending a party he met someone who he chatted with all night. He decided to invite his new friend to his place for a nightcap. Now, we all know what that means. Another classic line I believe we need retire.
By this point of the story, I still am not seeing the importance of his call but once he started on the next day the story picks up.
While his guest was in the other room getting ready to leave, my friend, being a gracious host, yells into the other room, “Would you like some breakfast?” After his third attempt and no response he rushed into the other room to make sure everything was okay. As he approaches his guest my friend asked him, “Why didn’t you answer me?” “Did you not hear me calling you?” Shocked but puzzled his guest quickly grips a pen and paper and starts writing “I am Deaf”!
Dating can seem challenging, frustrating and stressful at times but based on my own personal experiences once you add one-night stands to the mix, you have a recipe for disaster. Stay tuned for further posts.
