Slutting it up with the slayers is what happens to many women between relationships. After a woman breaks up with her boyfriend, she will spend some time slutting it up with attractive males, before she looks for a new boyfriend.
Some individuals appear to prefer one form of mating over the other (Simpson and Gangestad 1991, 1992), and many people use short-term mating in certain contexts (e.g., vacations) or particular phases of the life course (e.g., immediately after the dissolution of a long-term relationship).
Many articles on the Internet suggest that no-strings-attached (NSA) sex is a good option if a woman is between serious relationships.
That said, a no strings attached relationship
could be a good fit for you if:
You’re in between serious relationships
right now and just want to have some fun in the meantime.
Don’t squash your other options. This is an NSA relationship
, so, that means you can date other people. Actually, I recommend that you do so. Don’t feel that you have to put your dating life on hold because you’re having NSA sex.
In fact, I would see an NSA relationship
as a healthy pause from serious dating. So, it’s okay to take a break from the dating scene and have NSA sex, however, don’t spend too long down that road because you won’t be fulfilling your emotional needs.
Having a casual relationship
with tons of hot sex is a way to get over emotional burdens such as breakups, depression, loneliness, etc.,
