I have never had a one night stand………………..I’m giving you a few moments to pick your jaw back up. Lol. I know it may be surprising that a 33-year old single male has never had a one night stand before, but I promise you it’s the truth. I have never done a wham, bam, thank you ma’am (or sir…lol). Right after I started dating one of my ex’s, I told him that I’d never had a one night stand before. He immediately replied, “I’ll let you believe that lie.” Dude, seriously??? I was telling the truth, and I still am! Toddley is a one night stand virgin.
One night standing is something I’ve just never been able to bring myself to do, and my anxiety plays a big part of that. This is actually one of the few times I’m glad for my social anxiety. In general, I’m uncomfortable approaching strangers, but I’m nervous as hell to approach someone at the club or bar, and I pretty much never do. Whenever I go out clubbing, I always go with someone.
In fact, 2015 has marked the 1st time that I ever went clubbing solo in Atlanta, and I’ve been here nearly a decade 😮 On that historic night when I ventured out into the Atlanta nightlife alone, I was so proud of myself. I even went to two different clubs. I got eyed a lot, but no one approached me, nor did I approach anyone. Still, it was a major feat for me, and I was happy. #IDidThat 🙂
Plus, I’ve always been too paranoid about diseases to just randomly hook up with a stranger. So thank you, Anxiety, for keeping Toddley at bay. Lol.
Still, it seems like everybody and they mama has gone home with somebody at least once in their lifetime. A friend of mine once told me that he’d slept with about 150 different guys, and that a friend of his had slept with around 300 guys. Huh???? How on earth does one accomplish that? Even an ex of mine decided to have a one night stand while on vacay, just so he can say he’d had one before. It was like a bucket list item for him.
It doesn’t even matter what your race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation is either. One night stands do not discriminate. Straight people have them, gay people have them, black people have them, white people have them, Asian people have them….and the list goes on. An article on match.com even states that 44% of adults have had a one night stand. That’s a lot of people.
I applaud the one night standers out there. Y’all are braver than me. It takes a lot of courage and work to approach someone, make conversation, flirt, suggest going home w/ one another, figuring out whose house to go to or where to get a room (hell or even going to the bar’s bathroom for the truly freaky people out there), then actually going through whatever acts y’all choose to do, all while being complete strangers. Wow! Toddley can’t do it! Kudos to y’all though. Lol.
Maybe one day I’ll have a one night stand. It might be fun to do the walk of shame at least once in my life. Amber Rose sure seemed to enjoy it in her video for “Funny or Die.” If you haven’t seen it, it’s quite hilarious. I posted it below.
Where are my one night stand virgins? Am I the only oddball out here? Toddley wants to hear your thoughts on one night stands 🙂
