They are not for me. It would be too hard for me knowing I would never see that person again. I like to feel love and trust with someone. I always thought or think I can if there is a connection there, but if their is that person would stay in your life.

I understand what your saying. You are one of those people who get easily attached to someone. We are one of a kind. Thank you for the response!(^^,)

I don't think there is a legal issue when it comes to one-night stands. A brief, intimate encounter between two consenting adults is not wrong. They are not breaking any laws with their actions. Personally, it is an act, I will probably never indulge in, but not because it is legally wrong, but because it just doesn't fit me and my own moral code. However, for those who participate in such actions, I do not pass judgment on them. If that short moment of contact with another individual satisfy whatever desires they have, then so be it. As long as everybody are adults and willing, I don't think the law should get involved. One night stands is something between the two individuals involved alone and nobody else.

So i guess what you are saying depends on a persons own judgment or belief on the issue at hand. I like the "excluding the law" part because it should not be considered indeed. Thanks for the insight.(^^,)

I have had a few one night stands. I really dont see anything wrong with them unless you do it all the time.

So frequency for you is the factor that makes one night stands somehow wrong. Thank you for the response!(^^,)

A one night stand is a very moral issue in my opinion and depends upon how each individual stands on those morals. Some would say it is OK, some would not. For me it is something I have never done, I have always made a point of getting to know someone before we take it any further, you never know it could lead to something wonderful if you know the person. From a legal point of view I would say that as long as the people involved are of legal age and cosenting then it is quite legal.

You make a very good point. It is those who practice it which makes the act legal and moral. Thank you for your opinion about this matter.(^^,)

They dont realy bother me at all, i know lots of people who have had them and it doesnt make me think any less of them but i personally have never had 1 and never intend too, its just my personal oppinion and i dont think i could bring myself to do it. But good for all the willing participants who enjoy them thats what i say! Best wishes Lucy x visit my website http://forgetmenotmemorialcards.co.uk/

The law, in this case, has nothing to do with it IMO(in my opinion). If both individuals consent I see no reason why it should be anyones business but their own. Certainly some grumpy highly religious person somewhere else who would oppose such a meeting between consenting individuals would have no right to interfere. If thats what people want to do I believe they have the right to, and if they do not want to havee one night stand then don't. Very simple IMO Dan

As long as people set the boundarids and ground rules from he beginning that this is a one-night stand, and they are not looking for commitment, or that this could turn into something more, or whatever. As long as both people are in agreement, people can do what they want.

I totally agree with you. It is still a free world. And basically people can do what ever they want as long as they like what they are doing. Thanks for the opinion!(^^,)
