Like any kind of dating, there are do’s and don’ts of affair dating that will keep things running smoothly on all fronts. Especially if your affair isn’t with a stranger, there’s even more at stake. Remember to stay sharp, and never get caught.

 

Do Use Protection

Always use protection! One surefire way to out yourself is by giving your partner a nasty infection that you caught from your sidepiece. Think about how awful that conversation would be. Just avoid the whole thing by using protection.

 

Do Hold Out For The Holidays

As much as you want to see your affair partner for every holiday, it’s better to wait it out. After spending the day with your family and friends, they’re more likely to wonder where you are and what you’re doing. My advice would be to wait 2 weeks after any holiday before hooking up with your affair partner.

 

Don’t Over-Share

If you’re meeting someone new for a discreet encounter, don’t share too many details about your identity or personal life. Remember, they are a wildcard and you don’t want them showing up at your house or place of work as an unwelcome surprise.

 

Don’t Dip Your Pen In The Company Ink

Even though it might seem like a good idea, because you already know them, sleeping with someone from work is always a mistake. It can get awkward around the office, and there is the possibility of it complicating your work life in other ways like obstructing promotions or having it used to blackmail you. Be smart and just say pass.
