Are You Gonna Stay The Night? My Guide To The Perfect “Overnight Bag!”

Staying the night is more than just the lyrics from a song by Zedd. It’s that time while dating–or hooking up–when you’re having “intimate” time with your partner or potential (Mikey slang for cut buddy/love interest). Even here there are rules to apply. I could mundanely list every single detail that should encompass the night, but let’s keep it real. When doing the wild thing, spontaneity is preferred! I will, however, dish with you on the basics;the most basic of basics, when it comes to this exciting dating “must have”–an overnight bag!

What Is It?

Your overnight bag is just that an overnight bag! The bag you’re going to put all the essentials you need to get through your intimate night. You might think this is a no brainer, but toy’d be surprised how many people lack the knowledge of that they’ll need for the night–even if they’ve been doing it since “Rugrats” were popular. First, your overnight bag needs to be a good bag, and when I say good, I mean one that isn’t tattered, being held together by a thread and a prayer, and efficiently mobile (not so big you can smuggle refugees in it). A medium-sized bookbag, gym bag, or purse will do. Restrict this bag to overnight use. Criss-crossing use can have some unpleasant side effects to the contents of your bag as you’ll find out in just awhile (i.e. No overnight/gym bag, no overnight/accessory bag, etc.).

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
