The Morning After a One Night Stand: Things to Do
The one night stand has been around for as long as men and women have been going out together. The one night stand has traditionally been an awkward situation for both parties, especially for the one who is not at home, but finds himself or herself in the awkward situation of waking up in a strange place with someone he or she does not know very well.
Get Out Fast
Many women wonder what they should do after a one night stand and many of things dependent on the relationship between the two in the one night stand. One of the first things that should be done is to get out of bed. If you have been drinking, you probably do not smell very good and it is a good idea to go home and clean up with a warm shower. You certainly do not want to overstay your welcome.
Read Body Language and Get Out Fast
Another good idea is to read body language. If you have not been drinking and your morning after aroma is not horrible, you should be sure that your partner for the night is not trying to get you out of bed and out of the house. When the night is over, it is over and you should go home. You might even want to get out of there before you even have to start paying attention to body language.
Turn on Television for Diversion
If there is a television in the room, turn it on. This will create a diversion as you look for your clothes. It will also help create conversation that will help reduce the awkwardness of the moment. While on the subject of technology, it is ok to turn on the television, but it is not acceptable to begin texting and posting the information about your night on Facebook. Playing around with your phone will only make you stick around too long.
Laugh it Off
It is important to be able to laugh about the event. The walk of shame can be funny rather than humiliating. Besides, you probably had some fun, so why not enjoy it! You should also not become the needy woman who must get his phone number, email address, Twitter ID, and birth certificate. It is also a good idea to not ask about your performance or comment on his, but just enjoy the walk and hold your head up high.
Avoid Breakfast with Him
Another good idea is to avoid going out for breakfast the next morning. You will not be at your best, especially in the looks department. If he wants to see you again, there are better ways to do it. Remember to decline nicely.
Sneak Out While He Is Sleeping
If you are able to, sneak out before he wakes up. This will prevent any awkward situations or strange conversations. You will create an air of mystery and you will get out while other people are sleeping so the walk of shame will not be so shameful. You might also be able to get out with enough time to enjoy some well needed rest in the comfort of your own bed.
