The first time you spend a night at a woman’s house is a big deal. This isn’t just a random hook up; she’s actually choosing to have you stay with her. That means you’re going to see her bedtime routine, spend a night sleeping next to her, and being with her for more than a couple of hours. You’re a lucky guy. Before you go over to her abode you should prepare yourself. It might sound stupid, but if you take some time to fully prepare then this can be the perfect first night together.
Get Your Stuff Ready
Make a list of everything you’re going to need to stay a night at her house. You might forget a few things, so as you go through your routine as normal you can take notes. Then the next day you’ll know everything that you need to grab before you go.
If you’re not the note taking kind of guy you can just get a basket or a bag, something that will hold all of your stuff. After you brush your teeth, put it in the bag. The same thing goes for mouth wash, hair brushes, colognes, etc. Don’t just stick to the night time stuff either. There will be a morning after. Of course you’ll also need something to sleep in and clothes for the next day.
Now, you might be hoping to get lucky tonight and perhaps sleeping clothes will be unnecessary. But here’s the thing, going into it assuming that you’ll be buck-naked is stupid. What happens if she’s actually just into cuddling? Or just started her period? Assuming will make you look like a horndog who thinks she’ll put out. The worst thing is that she’ll know it, too. You don’t just forget sleeping things and can’t cover up that you didn’t think you’d need them.
Have an Escape Route
It sounds really contradictory to say this, but you need to have an escape route planned. You don’t know what the night has in store. Yes, it might end up being awesome and you’ll never want to leave, but you might find a collection of doll heads in her closet. Always have a buddy who can call you with a mock-emergency that needs attention right now.
Plan Your Entertainment
She might already have some movies or something that you two can watch together, which is fine. But what about the movie, when it ends? There’s nothing that can kill a night together faster than having nothing to do. Dinner plans, game ideas, and general getting to know each other are the best activities for your first night.
Because this is such a big deal you might be feeling nervous. That’s totally understandable, but pretty unnecessary. She obviously likes you; otherwise you wouldn’t be at her place. The first sleepover can mean that you’re getting pretty serious, but right now all it is is taking one more step into a relationship. You’re not getting married, so relax.
