Your Girl Friday: How Do I Prepare For an Overnight Date?by Your Girl Friday on October 7, 2020
"I have my third date with a girl I really like this weekend and I feel like it’s probably going to end in a sleepover. I don’t want to be all Ted Mosby, but I want to make sure I’m prepared to sleep over there. What should I do?" --Male, 28
First off, congratulations for making it this far. You met a girl. You like her. You're hoping for some sexy times. But the biggest mistake you can make right now is assuming that date number three is going to end in a sleepover. Remember: Assuming makes an "ass" out of "u" and your travel toothbrush.
If it happens, great. If not, you'll live, right? As I see it, you shouldn't bring anything special with you, because that may turn her off. She might be offended by the presumption that you'll be getting busy, and decide that you're not worth sleeping with anyway. Allow yourself to go with the flow and be with the moment--with protection, of course--and you'll likely end up fine.
You can always run home and brush your teeth later, anyway."Your Girl Friday" is your reliable source for honest advice. Every Friday, she'll demystify whatever dating problem is plaguing your love life so you can start the weekend off right. No question is too small, too silly or too weird.
