Dating defined by Charlotteans

Posted By on Thu, Dec 30, 2010 at 10:04 AM

Define "dating."

When someone says "I am dating ____ (insert name)," it could mean they are boyfriend-girlfriend, they are going to the movies and out to eat on a consistent basis, they are going home together after the bars, or they're just doing the horizontal hump. Basically, dating could entail anything more than friends — without benefits at least.

So what in the hell is dating exactly? Is it how you coin a relationship, or just a PC way of saying "fucking"? Can someone please explain it to me so when I talk about my relations I know how to "DTR" (Define The Relationship) ... because that's hard to do when I can't even define dating.

I wanted to know what you thought dating is defined, so I asked via my Facebook page, and here are some of the responses I got from my request to define dating ...

New Year's Eve ... perfect time for a one-night stand?

Posted By on Tue, Dec 28, 2010 at 5:08 PM

Some people will be ringing in 2011 with someone they will never see again. That's according to an article from Lemondrop, you're more likely to have a one-night stand on New Year's Eve than any other time of the year.

A survey from intimacy products manufacturer Wet has found that 33 percent of women admitted that they were more likely to have a one-night stand on New Year's Eve than on any other night of the year.

With another 29 percent of respondents saying they'd hooked up with a co-worker at a holiday bash, now's the time to spark up a conversation with your office crush. And you might want to show up prepared for some action: 57 percent of women said they'd snuck off for a quickie during a holiday gathering.

If you're going to do the NYE one-night stand, you should plan properly for it. That means, get a box of condoms. If this is a one-night stand and you won't see this person again, there's no need to hide your freak flag.

Make sure you two have enough money between you to pay for a hotel room. This is good in case either of you have stalker tendencies. Keep in mind that hotel rates in Uptown Charlotte will be expensive for two reasons: the bowl game that's in town and the holiday. You might have better luck near the airport getting a room. But after you drive all the way out there, you might change your mind.

Don't let the norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, vasopressin, nitric oxide, and the hormone prolactin fool you into thinking there's more there than it really is. You're just satisfied.

Even if you and your one-night stand decide to see each other again, a new study dooms your relationship.

Couples who had sex the earliest - such as after the first date or within the first month of dating - had the worst relationship outcomes.

"What seems to happen is that if couples become sexual too early, this very rewarding area of the relationship overwhelms good decision-making and keeps couples in a relationship that might not be the best for them in the long-run," study researcher Dean Busby, of Brigham Young University's School of Family Life, told LiveScience.

No cramming: Year-round resolutions

Posted By on Tue, Dec 28, 2010 at 12:17 PM

Making a New Year's resolution makes about as much sense as turning a robe backward and calling it a Snuggie. But this concept, for whatever reason, appeals to the masses. I mean, why pick one day of the year to resolve to be better?

Shouldn’t we resolve for self-improvement all 365 days of the year so we don’t have to cram?

So fuck a New Year's resolution, make year-round resolutions. Here are some suggestions.

• Resolve to take risks. Playing it safe should be kept to a game of slow pitch softball.

Don’t be afraid to fall. It’s better to have a broken heart that can heal than a closed heart that can never feel.

• Resolve to distinguish between your friends and frenemies, and to love your haters.

• Resolve to throw out the to-dos and to-don’t lists and just do more of what you want to do vs. what you need to do. Don’t be miserable a second of 2011. (Six month doctor check-ups and jury duty excluded. Those are necessary)

• Resolve to tell the inner critic in your head to shut the front door, and silence all negative and worrisome thoughts.

• Resolve to say yes anytime someone asks you to dance — even if they aren’t cute and you have no rhythm. It beats sitting out in the corner.

• Resolve to talk to strangers even though your mom told you not to when you were a kid.

• Resolve to live like you're on stage — life isn't a dress rehearsal.

• Resolve to follow the golden rule and treat others the way you want to be treated, and be sure to treat yourself that way, too.

• Resolve to go to the gym — but not just because you want to lose weight but because exercise releases endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Resolve to be happy!

But in regard to an actual New Year's resolution, may I suggest resolving not to pay $80 to get into an over-crowded party where the open bar runs dry by 10 p.m. And who cares if you don't have anyone to kiss when the clock strikes midnight — we’re not all on a deadline like Cinderella. Life isn’t a fairytale. But that doesn’t mean we can’t all live like it’s one.

So the best resolution we can make is to live happily ever after.

(And you should also resolve to read more of the Bang Town blog, my new home at Creative Loafing until Love, Brittney launches. Smile!)

Charlotte's a swingtown

Posted By on Thu, Dec 23, 2010 at 10:45 AM

Swingtown

Remember that smart, yet short-lived TV show Swingtown? Well, if you live in the Queen City, then Swingtown didn't end, it just got a local setting.

According to Swingtowns.com, Charlotte is one of the top swinging cities.

No matter if you're seeking some hot steamy evenings with Charlotte Single Swingers in town or friends with benefits, take it slow at first. If you appear too pushy in your initial contact, it can be a huge turnoff. The provocative part for swingers is the thrill of the anticipation of something new. Finding Charlotte threesomes online is simple. Once strangers, those who make a small effort in email and ims on the computer really do meet in person, and enjoy swingers offline!

This site is like Facebook for sex. You create a profile or an account, the site is also very private and discrete. In the forums, there are Christmas party listings, links to porn sites and there are swingers by state, city and so forth. So, if you're looking for another way to have fun, log on.
