One-night stand?

Q: When is a one-night stand not a one-night stand?

A: When it becomes a two-night stand, and then a three and a four...

I'm relatively new to these boards and I was wondering about one-night stand etikette, if there is such a thing, and whether there were any unspoken rules of the game.

My experience mostly dates back to quite a long time ago when I worked as a piano player in the restaurant of one of the boats going between Sweden and England. Naturally, in the circumstances, it was almost the perfect place to meet women, there was plenty of opportunity for one-night stands, and all of them but a few turned out to be just that (there were always the return journeys ). In one case, however, we clicked in almost every respect, so much so that I moved to Sweden and spent the next 14 years in a relationship with her. So in this case, even though the night began with no particular intents, it became the prelude to a long love affair.

For the past six months, I've been young (ish) free and single and my most recent experiences come mostly from meeting women at night clubs. This can be a tricky business (compared to working on a boat, at least). So far, so good, but what if the woman I meet becomes infatuated with me, or vice versa? If the feeling's not mutual, then this can lead to all sorts of problems. For example, I saw a British TV documentary which described one poor bloke who had a one-night stand and ended up being harassed for two years afterwards!

So here I am in another new dating environment and I would really appreciate any experiences (both good and bad) that people would like to share, as well as any general advice about how to approach things on these boards.

I love the use of the word young(ish)!
