Singles Advice For Women By A Single Guy
In this post, a girl wonders whether or not she should be embarrassed by walking down the street in her previous night’s clothes after having spent the night with a guy.
Dear Ask The Man: After meeting a guy in a bar, we went back to his place and had sex. In the morning, I was still in the clothes I had worn the night before walking back to my car. There were a lot of people out and I had the feeling everyone was staring at me. So my question is, should I be ashamed of doing the so-called “Walk of Shame?”
The Man: Not at all. It is a perfectly natural and common ocurrance, a way of life, really, especially if you live in an area with a lot of singles.
Instead of being embarrassed, you should be happy (that is, assuming everything went well with the guy). Instead of dreading that walk, you should look at it as refreshing stroll. Reflect back on the good parts of the previous night and put a little extra bounce in your step.
Sometimes, people may wave and even holler at you while you’re making the Walk of Shame, but don’t try and hide or cover your face. Smile and wave back at them. Usually, the ones saying something are the very ones who have done this themselves several times. (And yes, even guys can do the Walk of Shame.)
If it does bother you, when you go out and you think you might wind up at a guy’s place, put in light shorts and a top in your purse or car (along with some flats, which you should always have in your car anyway) so you’ve got something else t wear in the morning instead of your heels and wrinkled dress.
