Can a great relationship really start off as a one-night stand?
If we really think about it, chances are most people have had a one-night stand by time they are 30 years old. Even though most people see it as just having a good time, there have actually been times where strangers who had sex ended up dating each other. Be honest, we know we're not the only ones who think that hearing stories like that makes us wonder if it's seriously possible for lust at first sight to turn into a great relationship. Although this may sound farfetched, it may be possible to turn a one-night stand into something more—that is, IF you know exactly what to look for.
When dating experts Lisa Steadman and Charles J. Orlando talk about whether or not hooking up can lead to a happy relationship, we couldn't agree more! Going home with someone on the first night doesn't always have to end in a broken heart; if you are looking for someone who values convenience and chemistry over anything, maybe you should try to turn that one-night stand into a relationship. That being said, there's no guarantee that the guy you hooked up with will turn into Mr. Right (and isn't just Mr. Right Now).
The truth of the matter is that one-night stands are based solely upon the chemistry between two people. The problem with this is that most people don't base their relationships only on chemistry. There are a bunch of things that you need to ask that person before you can even think about getting into a relationship. After all, people need common goals—if you have absolutely nothing in common when it comes to what you want for the future, what is the point in getting serious?
