Instant attraction can be a wonderful thing. You lock eyes, there's an instant frisson that gets your heart pumping, and you begin to wonder what it would be like to take things further.
With consent and safety precautions in place (these are of the utmost importance, especially when dealing with someone who is essentially a stranger), there is no reason you two can’t enjoy a night of mutual fun.
However, even if they appear to be exactly the kind of person you're looking for, that doesn’t necessarily mean that going home with them is the best idea. I know that with hormones high, especially if it has been a while since your last sexual encounter, there is a temptation to ignore the signs and throw caution to the wind.
Unfortunately, this could end in a disappointing evening in some way. It can be hard to take a step back and evaluate the situation logically, but watching out for these warning signs will hopefully nip any potential for disappointment or disaster in the bud…

The start of a new year gives many of us a chance to take stock, re-evaluate and do some reflection on what happened in the previous year, and what we’d love to work on, try out or do just a little differently.
Some people can go a little overboard with their goals and resolutions, but remember, the year doesn't necessarily have to mean you should aim for a whole new you or a vastly new life.
If you had an awesome 2016, don’t feel like 2017 should have to be a complete turn-around in a new direction… keep heading on that awesome path!
