Avoid the Walk of Shame: What to Do the Morning After

"You need to avoid this"

“You need to avoid this”

Having a hookup that lasts the whole night is an excellent experience, but the morning after the action can be a bit awkward. You might be tempted to sneak out of her apartment, and that’s when things get awkward. You trip over one of her ridiculously high heels and wind up falling flat on your face, baring your goods to the world, which obviously wakes her up and makes for an awkward conversation. Things can get a bit awkward whether you’re at your place, her place, or a motel room. You don’t want to end your encounter on this sort of note, but how does one avoid the walk of shame? It’s tougher for women than it is for men. We have some tips that will help you avoid the dreaded walk of shame and make sure your encounter ends on a good note, not a weird one. Here’s what you need to know:

Make Her Breakfast


If you know how to cook, this is the time to make your skills shine. If you make her breakfast the morning after, she’s not going to have much to complain about in terms of awkwardness. After all, she gets to have a meal after a night of passion, so what’s to complain about? Of course, this may not go over that well if you’re at her place and she doesn’t want you rummaging around in the kitchen, so be wary of your surroundings. If you’re at your place, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go ahead and make her breakfast. It will give her something pleasant to wake up to, at the very least, and she could wind up feeling so grateful that she drags you into bed for another bit of fun.

Stick around in Bed for a Second Go

Maybe you don’t want to get out of bed to bother to try and make breakfast, or maybe you’re at her place and you know it wouldn’t be welcomed. If you’re not feeling it, you may as well laze around in bed and see about getting her interest in another round of sex. Don’t do anything creepy while she’s asleep, but kiss her neck a little and see if she seems interested in having more fun. Be sure to ask if she’s up for it, though – you don’t want to assume that she’s down with it.

Know How to Sneak Out

“Sneak out before she wakes up”

Sometimes you just have to sneak out. No shame. Make sure you take notice of the room’s layout before you get hot and heavy so you know the best way to leave in the morning. Tiptoe out of the bed as carefully as possible so you doing trip on anything that may have gotten tossed to the floor throughout the course of the night. Make sure you know how to get out of her house, and make sure you don’t leave anything behind. You should be fine, but just make sure not to make too much noise. Having her wake up in the middle of you sneaking out would be awkward for sure.
