Has anyone else had casual sex and realized it wasn't for them?
I've had a few one nightstands and - most recently - an acquaintance that I hooked up with... and it's occurred to me that casual sex doesn't work for me. I mean, it's fun to have but afterwards I feel like "blah".
Maybe it's because I've never had a mind-blowing good time, or maybe it's because I enjoy having a girlfriend, I don't know.
Anyone else feel like this?
Reading the comments, I was surprised at the number of comments from men saying it really doesn't work for them. I went through and tallied up the numbers as best I could:
A few guys expressed that it's better than nothing, so they continue to have it when they are not in a relationship. Only a couple of people on the thread have not had casual sex and would appreciate the opportunity.
The comments from the women who like casual sex were particularly interesting, and in keeping with my belief that a small minority of women are just wired differently:
I'm a dude and I've done the exact same thing. Lately that is all I've been getting was casual so i'm working on it, but it is super tough.
Yep. This is me. I feel filthy if we're not seriously into each other.

I've done the casual sex thing a little bit, and I completely agree with you.
