You can’t help who you’re attracted to, but you can stop yourself from making stupid mistakes. You shouldn’t hesitate to try to get with any single, interested woman you find attractive – unless she falls into one of the four categories below. Here are a few hard and fast archetypes you should never, ever try to bed:
Your Best Friend’s Girls
Guys, this one should be a no-brainer. Under no circumstances should you try to hook up with your best friend’s current or former lover. If you value your friendship with your pal, then keep it in your pants. Even if she’s making passes at you, you must be the bigger man and reject her advances. If you feel it’s appropriate, let your buddy know that you’re worried about her fidelity. The odds that you’ll be able to sleep with your friend’s girl or ex and maintain a relationship with him and her are slim to none, so just say no. Even if your friend gives you explicit permission, be certain that he’s doing so because he’s comfortable with the situation. If you detect any jealousy or worry on his part, then back off.
Your Boss, Your Employee
You know that saying “Don’t dip your pen in the company ink?” It may not hold true in every scenario – after all, many people meet the love of their life through work. However, sleeping with someone in your office sets you up for a tricky situation, especially if there is an imbalance of power. You don’t want your boss to ever hold your sexual relationship over your head, and you probably wouldn’t be too happy if your co-workers suspected that the reason you were successful was because you were sleeping with the manager. If you are in a leadership position yourself, it’s simply unethical to sleep with one of your employees.
The Girl Who Won’t Use Condoms
Have you ever run into a woman who absolutely refused to use protection during sex? She may claim that it doesn’t feel as good, but anyone who is willing to compromise their sexual health for sexual comfort should be avoided. If you are infatuated with a lady who really doesn’t like condoms, why not suggest she give pleasure condoms a try. Ribs and studs can make all the difference. Still, if you know a woman hasn’t been using condoms with others, you might want to think twice before you invite her into your bedroom.
The Girl Who Broke Your Heart
Any guy who’s had his heart broken knows what true longing feels like. You’ll probably spend days or weeks wishing for just one more chance to have sex with your ex. It can be tempting to fall back into bed with a woman who recently left you, but unless she’s seen the error in her ways, it’s not a good idea. In fact, even if she apologizes profusely, take some time to make sure she’s serious before you hop between the sheets. Otherwise, you could end up with a twice-broken heart.
