After going through all the right steps, doing all the right things, and ending a successful night, you have reached the final frontier: how to handle the morning after. As sophisticated, adult men in 21st century Britain, we’re going to say that it’s not good form to kick a woman out directly after you’ve done the deed. We’re not saying that you need to cuddle or make her an elaborate breakfast, but it’s just common decency to invite her to spend the night if it’s late. (This doesn’t apply if it’s still early in the evening – namely, before 11 P.M.) Though, facing the morning after is a different type of art. Once you wake up and get out of bed, there’s a very specific series of steps you should follow to avoid any drama, and one of those things is what you wear once you crawl out from under the blanket.
Pajamas are always acceptable and neutral, as long as they’re not made of any exuberant fabrics like silk or resemble something the protagonist of a Victorian novel would wear. Keep it simple, like only donning flannel bottoms. Your goal here is to be casual and relaxed, and your attire should express the same sentiment.
T-Shirt and Underwear
A little risky, since anything that involves old t-shirts and unattractive real world underwear means that you’re treating her more like a familiar companion and not a sexy friend. Would you wear a ratty t-shirt and your underwear in front of a girl you were trying to hook up with? If the answer is no, then don’t wear the same outfit after, either. It implies that you feel comfortable enough around her to be your “real” self. This sounds like a good deal, but the problem is that she’s going to read into it, and start wanting to get serious. Don’t lead her on, and keep it distant and classy.
Too intimate! It is fine to sleep naked, but once you and your lady friend are both up, don’t go gallivanting around not wearing any clothes. People who walk around naked are usually completely at ease with one another, and you don’t want to make her think that you’re thinking of you both as an old married couple. It’s either going to end badly for you, or she’s going to be freaked out.
The best approach of how to get out of bed and keep your routine going until she leaves is to be calm, collected, and courteous. Throw on a pair of flannel bottoms, get out of bed and leave her clothes folded on a chair if she’s not up yet (it’s polite to pick them up off the floor, but don’t act as if you’re leaving them out for her), and when she does get up, offer her coffee. Another good thing to remember: it’s only polite to wake up an overnight visitor if the hour goes past 10 a.m. See her to the door wearing your casual attire, thank her, and wish her well. You have just successfully closed the deal.
