9. Expecting Monogamy After Sex
For a lot of women, sex is the ultimate form of intimacy, and we expect that if we give a man our bodies, then he will give us his heart. WRONG. Not saying all men are “hit it and quit it” type dudes, but unless you’ve had a conversation about your relationship and expectations, don’t think that sex automatically makes him your man. If you’re trying to use sex to manipulate or “trick” him into catching feelings for you, you’ll be in for a rude awakening. If you’ve already managed to catch feelings for him, you should probably hold off on having sex with him until you know his feelings are mutual. Otherwise your feelings will just grow more intense after you have sex with him and you will be in a very bad place. Be honest with yourself about where your relationship truly stands and make sure you’re having sex for the right reasons. If you have a motive, then check yourself, because it could backfire on you. Sex is just sex, until you have the talk.
