4. No parting shots once the beer goggles wear off.

Yeah, your one-night partner might not be as hot as you thought they were after you had a few drinks, but it’s a bit unfair to let them know that after the fact. In the end, if you thought you were getting it on with a Maui Taylor lookalike who turned out to be a Maui Pacquiao once your hangover sets in, well, how is what she looks like her fault?

 

3. Don’t let the next day’s opinion matter too much to you.

Conversely, if the next day reveals the both of you made some bad choices, who the hell cares? That’s the beauty of a one night stand.

 

2. There is no shame in the walk of shame.

What “shame?” You just got some, baby! Simply put, make it a point to, barring horrible circumstances, at least thank your partner before you go off your merry way. Then hold your head up high.

 

1. Don’t overstay your welcome.

It may have been awesome, but it might just have been you. Either way, don’t expect to hang out for the rest of the day when the morning comes. Make your graceful exit, and you can be sure that if they ever want seconds and so do you, they will let you know. Create an illusion of scarcity, and you will hold the cards.
