Ladies, how many of you have had these problems?
There is no better home than your own home. You realize this when stay over at a guy’s place for a night after a hook-up or just like that. You have a dozen or more things to worry about which are on your head and you can’t stop thinking about them. It is not your home so it is not your comfort zone. It is completely normal to worry about these things when you are away from home because you don’t want to mess things up for yourself and the guy you stayed with.
Here are those 16 meddling thoughts you keep having throughout the night.
1. How Am I Going To Get Home?
It is not very likely that you brought your car when you rushed from the club to his home. You probably jumped in his car so chances are that you are without means of conveyance when you wake up the next morning. Your phone is dead and he is still sleeping. How are you going to go home? You feel like you are on an island with no human life in contact until you realize that you can always take a cab.
2. I Have To Set My Alarm For The Morning:
Whether you are drunk or sober, naked or dressed, you are constantly telling yourself to not forget about the alarm. It does not matter how your night goes, your morning has to be the usual, work-on-time morning. You have to get home so you have to rise up with the sun and get going. So among all the thoughts you have on that eventful night in a strange guy/boyfriend’s apartment, you try your best to not screw up the next day.
3. I Hope He Has An Extra Toothbrush:
If you are not planning to sneak out while he is sleeping and are on good terms with him then you might worry about not having brought your toothbrush along. You seriously did not put so much thought into one night-stay, nobody does. You secretly hope he has an extra toothbrush so that he does not have to kiss your bad mouth and back off because of the foul smell. You really hope he has one otherwise, welcome embarrassment.
4. What Hints Did He Take?
Whether it was a guy you have been dating or some newbie, you wonder what he thinks of you after the night all sorts of questions start popping up in your head. Was it too soon to spend the night? Does he think I am an easy woman and is only interested in me for sex? The last thing you want him to think is that you are all for sleepovers. These are all very unnerving thoughts yet you welcome them.
5. It’s Possible He Is A Serial Killer:
You have seen all the movies and TV shows to know how good sociopaths are at hiding their true identities so you let yourself assume the situation if he turns out to be one. You are home alone with him; he could not find a better time to kill. All of it sounds insane but you know it is possible so you start thinking back to that one taekwondo class you took in sixth grade before you push all the doubts away.
6. Should I Take My Makeup Off Or Not:
If it is your first night with the guy you will wonder if he will like you or not without makeup. We know we love our no-makeup selves but guys can be jerks. You don’t want to waste the night by putting him off’ by taking your makeup off and at the same time you would love to feel more comfortable without it. It’s a dilemma inside your head and you can’t decide whose preferences matter more.
7. Where The Hell Am I?
It’s likely you did not see where he drove to, what turns he took when you were rushing to his apartment. Even if it was a one night stand or the first time with the guy you have been going out with, you have no clue where he brought you because you were just so blind with excitement the night before. The first to do after waking up is trying to figure out where on earth you are.
8. Can We Just Sleep?
If you are lucky, the guy will be equally tired and will go to sleep as soon as you two have had all the fun. If you are not so lucky and he starts talking about the current affairs of his life, you get ready to have a miserable next day due to lack of sleep. You want to stop him, lean in to his face and whisper Can you shut up? I am really sleepy but you can’t, you just can’t.
9. Should I Tell Him I Have Morals?
One night stands imply a lot of things about the people who do it. If you are not the kind of person who sleeps around for fun you might feel the need to make it clear to the guy you slept with. You are confused as to you should or not because, does he care about your integrity? On the other hand, though, you don’t want the wrong word to get out about you.
10. Where Is The Nearest Bathroom?
You try to figure out where the nearest bathroom is as soon as you step in the house so that you know where to go in the middle of the night. You know it’s normal but you don’t want to take any chances at embarrassing yourself so you try to figure it out by yourself and save him the thoughts of you sitting on a commode doing what one does on a commode. You inspect his house quietly.
11. I Hope I Don’t Snore:
If you live alone you probably won’t know if you have been snoring recently so sleeping with someone will be taking a chance. Especially for the first time, this uncertainty will make you nervous although he will quietly go sleep on the couch if you do snore. But nobody wants their sexy image they created moments ago to be ruined instantly so you really hope you don’t snore and ruin it.
12. This Is Different:
If you have always been the one to host your boyfriend or random guys then sleeping over at someone else’s place will be a different experience in a good way. You will not have to care about the mess they create because now you are the mess creator. You won’t have to worry about them finding weird things at your home for which you are expected to give explanations. You are the guest now; you don’t have to care about anything.
13. Can I Wear My Mouth Guard In His Presence?
You have a teeth grinding problem which gives you bad headaches the next day so you wear your mouth guard almost every night. But with a guy on your bedside, you are not sure if it is the right thing to do. What if he goes for a kiss in the morning and your mouth is full of smelly, clumsy mouth guard which freaks him out. You can’t decide between staying sexy and avoiding headaches.
14. He’s Dirty:
He is dirty, not in a sexy way but actually dirty, untidy. His bed has less place to place butt and more clothes than his cupboard would have. You can’t say if his sheets were ever given in the laundry and how long the pizza box has been there for. You will be impressed if he’s a tidy man but if it is the opposite, happy sitting on random objects you did not know were there. It is also kind of a turn-off but you try your best to not say it on his face.
15. I Miss Home:
You realize how great of a blessing your small apartment is after spending a night at his place. Yours is ten times cleaner (or maybe not), has all the things you need and, most importantly, it is yours. No matter how comfortable his comforter is it won’t be as good as your own squishy pillows and your jumpy mattress. You will feel homesick only after a little while of spending the night with him. Home is where the heart is; you just can’t wait for the alarm to go off and sneak out (if you did not forget to set the alarm).
