I have just met someone but feel guilty/really not good as we slept together first meeting.

I am a single mother my child was away with father for weekend. I was in town having a tea when I caught a guy's eye and he asked if he could join me. We talked lots and obvious we both liked each other a lot.

We met up again in evening and went out and I ended up staying at his. He has called me up since and we have met again.

I just feel I have put it on a platter for him and I want to really get to know him. I just am not sure if he has other motives.

Have I ruined it?

CRazzyyAce Wed 07-Sep-16 14:05:34

Maybe, maybe not depends on what his behaviour has been like afterwards

If he's the sort to judge you for having slept with him the first night, he wasn't worth keeping around, imo.

hotsunnyweather Wed 07-Sep-16 14:11:25

First time we slept together was a Sun and Mon 4pm he sent a message that saying "last was fun, let's meet up soon"

We talked a bit on the phone on the Tues and then he came round Tues night. My child was away with father that night.

He calls every now and then and asks a lot about my ex husband and my life. I am careful not to disclose too much. He talks a lot about himself.

I spoke with him yesterday saying I really wanted to get to know him.

He doesn't know that I had not slept with or had a relationship with anyone for over a year. This is why I feel my guard was down and I slept with him so quickly. That really isn't me.

If he likes you, it won't make a bit of difference.

If he's the kind of guy who thinks poorly of women who sleep with him first date, then you're better off finding out sooner than later. As a hypocritical sexist shite. grin

I don't want to tell him that as he might think I used him for sex which isn't the case.

I did say that I didn't want to be a sheet of paper igniting and that I would rather be a slow burning candle.

TippiNoodlegruder Wed 07-Sep-16 14:15:23

I agree with hmm if he judges you for it (and that's really nonsensical because well, you did it WITH HIM) then he's not the type of person whose opinion counts. I slept with my now dh on our second meeting (and it would have been the first if we'd had the time) and it was great! We both wanted to, that's the only thing that needs to be considered really.

hotsunnyweather Wed 07-Sep-16 14:18:50

He hasn't judged me as far as I know but I just hope that he doesn't think that sex is always on the cards if we meet up.

I really would like something more than sex. I have told him this too.

He initiated me spending weekend with him in his part of town. He runs a lot as do I and he suggested us having a run together. I suggested we see an exhibition in town and or go to see a movie.

I do find him very sexually attractive and I know he feels the same. Just feel I gave too much early on. I need to hold back.

I guess it has been a long time and I am more than a bit rusty when it comes to men.

Haven't you already got another thread about this with people replying on it?

ALaughAMinute Wed 07-Sep-16 14:21:38

If you're going to sleep with someone straight away you have to be confident about it and hold your head high. You've done nothing wrong so stop beating yourself up about it. Act with dignity and enjoy! smile

ToxicLadybird Wed 07-Sep-16 14:23:43

If you like each other, then so what. I did the same and we've now been very happily married for almost 20 years. Just relax and enjoy yourself.

GreenHen Wed 07-Sep-16 14:41:15

I slept with my husband on our first date (stayed at his house). It just felt right and it still does nearly 14 years later.

Why would he judge you negatively if he did exactly the same thing?

I had a few other dates in the couple of months before I met DH - I didn't sleep with any of those. Take it as a good sign. I don't get the impression from what you've said that he was just looking for sex.

Cocklodger Wed 07-Sep-16 14:44:16

Married to DH for almost 9 years. together about 13/14.
Slept with him on the first date.

Clickclickclick Wed 07-Sep-16 14:44:54

Why do you need to hold back? Do what you want to do, what feels good to you. It's sexist to judge a woman badly for behaviour that a man would not get judged for.

Handbagsandgladrages Wed 07-Sep-16 14:45:42

Why the fuck would he judge her when he did exactly the same thing hmm

AyeAmarok Wed 07-Sep-16 14:49:02

The only men I know that would have a problem with this are not very bright, pretty gross sexist misogynists who see women as lesser beings than them. Not one of them I would consider to be a catch.

So don't worry.

If he's nice and he genuinely likes you, then it won't make a difference.

Sex is generally how people fall in love (provided one does it enough times with one person!). Nothing wrong with having sex with the man when you met him, certainly nothing wrong with having sex every time you're together.... is that not normal? It's healthy and fun to shag!!

More important than all this guff about using each other etc, is did you enjoy the sex and would you like to do it again? If so, you should!

There's no such thing as using for sex ime... women (and men) sometimes decide that they've been used for sex but all that's happened is the other person had set with them once and didn't feel a connection in bed, so obviously they don't want to do it again. It's not using, it's just not wanting to repeat something they didn't like!

Leopard12 Wed 07-Sep-16 14:50:50

I'd try and avoid sex for the next few meet ups ie meal but then you need to get back to your dd, have an excuse to shower at your place or work (alone) after your run or a daytime trip and see if he's still as keen and if you both actually like each other rather than just sexually

hotsunnyweather Wed 07-Sep-16 14:51:02

After I sent this thread first time it was not showing up so I re sent it. I have only answered this thread. sorry sad

One of my friends said I gave too much, too quickly and as he is very good looking he must be doing this all the time.

I do feel I haven't done anything wrong but I do feel he probably has a lot of girls on the go. I understand though it is only a few days since I have known him.

I did feel worried and that it was too fast when he said we should have sex without a condom on the second time. Honestly I would like that a lot but I said I would rather wait and he replied he would get a full STD check as he got drunk a couple of times and had sex with a girl he had just met over a two week period that has just finished. I am not sure if he still is seeing her.

hotsunnyweather Wed 07-Sep-16 14:53:24

My friend also said if you sleep with a guy on first date 9 times out of 10 they do not introduce you to family and friends.

StillDrSethHazlittMD Wed 07-Sep-16 14:57:05

If this is genuine, run for the fucking hills.

hotsunnyweather Wed 07-Sep-16 15:02:32

If I call him he usually doesn't answer and if he does he says he is doing something but then does call back in an hour or 3.

I am idiot as I am more keen than him and I think he knows it.

This morning at 9am I sent text Big kiss X. At 10.30 He sent Hello yummy mummy.

I played it cooled at first and then at 2.45 just called him and he said he would call me back.

Fact is if he is with a woman and bonking it is early days and I don't want to say anything unless it becomes more between us.

ALaughAMinute Wed 07-Sep-16 15:03:30

Having sex on a first date or meeting is one thing but having sex without a condom when you don't know someone is another matter entirely. If you had sex without a condom you should get a STD check, never mind him!

If he wants you to have sex without a condom tell him to fuck off!

AyeAmarok Wed 07-Sep-16 15:08:30

Em, this is starting to all sound a bit strange. Your attitude to it, your friends' attitude to sex, and him wanting to have sex without a condom...

I think maybe I'd just leave it until you're in a more confident frame of mind and know what you're looking for.
