From Vibe Vixen — It’s morning. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping. You roll over to get just five more minutes of sleep. Then, you notice the unfamiliar texture of the pillow against your face. And the bed doesn’t quite feel like your bed either…oh damn…
Last night’s mischief and mayhem come quickly back to the forefront of your memory. There was a party, some drinks, some dancing…a lot of dancing, some flirting…a lot of flirting…and here you are. In a stranger’s bed.
And now comes the proverbial “walk of shame”…but it doesn’t have to be that way. While it may be awkward to face the morning light wearing last night’s club dress (especially if it’s Sunday and others are heading to church), beating yourself up about what happened isn’t going to make things better.
The first thing you want to do is run back through the night’s events and make sure as best you can that you chose to have this little rendezvous. If you struggle to remember how you got there and what happen after you arrived, you may have either been drugged or drank far too much. If things are not adding up, don’t hesitate to call a crisis center to help you sort through your concerns once you are safely out of the house.
