“Both are commitment free dating type”
When you’re looking to hook-up with someone more often than not you’re looking for something with very minimum commitment. Sometimes it extends to knowing their background, sometimes it means that you know their name and that’s it. The two most popular kinds of dating for commitment-free guys are one night stands and arrangements that are no strings attached. While they’re both grounded in the same ideas, they’re not quite the same. So you’ve got to think about it and ask yourself what you want out of your next hookup: no strings? Or a one nighter?
No Strings Attached
No string attached is a phrase that’s been applied to this particular dating style because it’s free from all of the traditional stuff. You don’t have to buy flowers or take her out, hell you don’t even have to see her aside from when you’re having sex. The idea here is that you get to have fun with this person and you both agree that you’ll leave it all in the bedroom. That’s not quite as literal as it sounds, but your only relationship requirements are that you’re both alive. No strings attached relationships often go on for more than a night. They’re generally kept under three months, since after that real relationships start popping up. This is a good option if you’re really trying to stay single, but would like to have a comfy lady to cuddle as well as have sex with. Ultimately this will end and you may or may not end up with feelings for the person. Theoretically, not though.
One Night Stands
“Intimacy without the intricacies of a relationship”
One night stands are often romanticized as a steamy, anonymous romance. Truthfully a one night stand is with someone that you vaguely know of and take home while drunk. They’re rarely planned, but if they are then it’s going to be with someone you know or have met online. The movie version of these is a woman on the town finding Prince Charming and taking him home for a roll in the hay. For us guys it’s never that easy. Since these one-nighters are steamy and anonymous, that also makes them bad. When people get the chance to do bad things it makes them feel naughty, so one night stands can turn casual women into freaks just because they’re so forbidden. Use that to your advantage if you’re the type of guy who doesn’t care about the lady, just that sex happens at you.
Which One’s for You?
When you’re deciding between the two you’ve got to consider what you want out of the whole thing. Getting to know the woman a bit more and sharing times with her will cause memories and experiences. Some people are into that while others would prefer to satisfy their needs without having to connect with someone else. There’s no judgment, but it’s better if you want to keep things anonymous to go with the one night stand. Avoid hooking up with those that you know and go for the bar flies instead.
