I'm a young man and I have a few questions for the ladies about casual sex... 1) Is it... Creepy? Understandable? Pathetic? Other? Due to some emotional, mental, and financial problems of mine, I simply couldn't manage any kind of long-term relationship. Even casual dating or friends-with-benefits would be difficult to the point of impracticability. Even if you don't believe me, if you were to assume this is truly the case, my only options would seem to be casual sex and celibacy. Since celibacy sucks, I'd really like to just find a girl with whom I can spend an evening, once or maybe occasionally. Does this make me creepy? Does it help that I'd be happy to make a date out of it (with dinner, etc.) to make sure we like each other fairly well, or that I'd try my best to make it a mutually fulfilling encounter? 2) Do girls ever enjoy or actually desire and seek out such things? I know that there are girls whose personalities and lifestyles (partying, clubbing, etc.) facilitate such encounters, but what about the other girls? What about the ones that you're most likely to see at the store, or the library, or around town, or whatever? Do they ever think about how long it's been and think it'd be nice to just spend some time with a guy satisfying some urges? Well, I imagine that there must be some girls like that, considering how many girls there are in the world, but how common is it? 3) If so, what do you do about it? Do you ask your male friend if they want to come over? Do you hang out somewhere in the hopes that someone will try to pick you up? Do you invite hot strangers over to your place? Do you use the internet? Or do you just endure the "dry spell"? If you hang out someplace, how do I tell if you're there to be picked up or just to relax or whatever? Of course I'm hoping that something said in reply to my post will directly benefit me, but mostly I'm just curious, so don't feel obligated to give me advice.
