Sex & the Single Woman: Calling Miss Manners!

No amount of etiquette lessons can prepare a girl for politely handling a booty call. In an age of rapid technological improvements and instant communication, booty calls are taken to a whole new level.

Today’s example is a fan favorite: the text message. Used for various forms of communications, it is a common platform for soliciting company on cold, lonely Saturday night.

But what happens if you are interested, but don’t want to be just a one night stand? (Or worse, or regular text message request?). Or what if you are interested but are not available to respond? And what happens if you have no idea what you want but you know you want something, and you aren’t sure if you should just go for it?

Whew. It’s a lot for one woman to think about.

I handled the situation the best way I could. I lightly hinted that I was not available because I was actually out of the state.I don’t know what I want from this guy–he’s super cute but I don’t think a booty call is on my agenda. But I certainly don’t want to rule out the possibility that he might call again.

What do you think? What is the best way to handle a beauty call?
