One-Night Stands: the Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and the Odd

Nina Crespo’s romance novel Rules of a Rebound got me thinking about one-night stands. Of course, Natalie and Rome got their happily ever in the story. Still, I wondered about all things one-night stand in real life. Like how often it happens, how men feel versus women, how often it becomes something more. So Liza went googling. The Good If you’ve had a one-night stand (or two or three), don’t sweat it. You have loads of company.

So, I am reading 4 Reasons to Date Someone Who’s Been Divorced. First off, I learned something new. Seems there’s still a stigma attached to dating divorced people.

So here it is.   1.  How they treat their former spouse is a GOLD MINE of information. I am divorced, and my former husband and I are still…
