Don’t get me wrong, sometimes one night stands are great. More than often, though, they’re a fuck-up from start to finish. Here’s an expectation vs reality based on some of my worst (but funniest) experiences.

1. You meet in the club

Expectation: Some romantic smooth chat

Reality:

2. Then there’s discussing whether to go home or not, where you may try and pretend this isn’t something you “usually do”

3. Then there’s the cab ride

Expectation: Chatting in the cab, discussing your lives

Reality: Ferociously snogging whilst probably eating cheesy chips at the same time

4. Then you get home

Expectation:

Reality:

5. How we think we look when we get into bed:

How we actually look:

6. Then there’s the sex 

Expectation:

Reality:

8. Post sex cuddles

Expectation:

Reality:

9. The morning after

Expectation:

Reality:

10. Then there’s bumping into them a few days after

Expectation:

Reality:

Ah, one night stands in uni, gotta love ‘em.
