Sex & the Single Woman: Good, Clean Fun

Current dilemma my roommate and I are discussing: how does one go from being a strictly-relationship girl to only wanting to hook up?

We are both in the position of being interested guys but not really wanting to date them. Coming from a pair of women who are traditional, exclusive-dating kind of people, this is very out of character. At the same time, she just ended a serious relationship and we are both facing moving to new locations in the next year, so it makes sense.

What we need to do now is to figure out how to separate ourselves from our strict pattern of dates, follow up phone calls, monogamy. We need to realize that it’s okay to — safely– explore what’s out there without an absolute commitment. No labels are necessary, especially the cliche three words: friends with benefits.
