We didn't see each other again because I was just really embarrassed that I let it happen in the first place. How old were you when you had your first one-night stand? When she came over, it just happened and I went with it.How often do you tell the people you're having one-night stands with that it's just going to be a one-night stand?

It doesn't always work though because no matter what you tell some women, they still expect more, but for my own conscience, I feel I did the right thing. I also always text them the next day and am really nice to them because sometimes I want to add them to my friends with benefits roster.

Man B: My one-night stands have always been spontaneous, so I've never been in the position to tell them it would be a one-night stand. How do you deal with misunderstandings about the seriousness of the hookup?

After that we never spoke again and I didn't have any interest in seeing her again.

Did both parties seem OK with the one-night-stand-ness of the situation?

Man B: We were both OK with it because we'd always had sexual tension between us and figured it was inevitably going to happen at some point.

At the time, it felt physically satisfying and it was a totally unexpected surprise, but looking back, I completely regret it.Plus, I've seen what people become when they get in relationships, and I really don't want or need that in my life right now.I've tried having friends with benefits, which is obviously ideal, but one person always ends up having feelings for the other person, and if you are only having sex with that person, than you really are kind of in a relationship without even knowing it.I went back to see her again to hook up another time, but our dynamic had changed and I was very confused.We eventually talked it out and she explained that she just didn't feel a connection with me. I had put myself out there and went against my normal pattern of traditional dating to have a chance at casually hooking up with this girl, and getting turned down put me in a really bad place for awhile.One-night stands can be mind-blowing or regret-inducing, and you never really know which it's going to be. I'm very into one-partner sexual relationships, so every time I saw her on campus, I felt like like I was staring directly at my mistakes.
