People Who Had One Night Stands The Night Before 9/11 Share Their Experiences
Some one night stands are unforgettable.
Unfortunately, the reason a one night stand is memorable is not always great.
Redditor u/DD275 asked was very specific when they asked... "People who had one night stands on September 10 of 2001, what was the next morning like?" And people did actually have stories of trysts that turned tragic.
10. "He was spending the night in Jersey City..."
"Not me but an old friend. He was spending the night with an friends with bee of his in Jersey City (he lived in Brooklyn at the time). Long story short they literally wound up watching everything happen from the roof of her building."
9. "Trapped in the house with two crying women..."
"I used to work with a guy who this actually happened to. He was in DC so the Pentagon bombings were more what he was dealing with. It was apparently an older woman and she immediately called her friend over to commiserate and had put his clothes in to wash so he was trapped in the house with two crying women in front of the tv wearing nothing but a woman's robe."
8. "I woke up first..."
"I woke up first, saw the news, and had to go back into the bedroom to wake her up and tell her what was happening. That moment felt very intense. I had the feeling I had a dire responsibility to choose my words very carefully. We spent the next few days together. Then we dated for a couple of years and got married. We're still married and have a little family."
7. "I would have never been born..."
"Fun Fact: Both my parents were in the military at the time. If it wasn't for 9/11, then they would have never been stationed at the same military base, never have met, and I would have never been born."
6. "My news took a back seat..."
"I actually lost my virginity on Sept 10th 2001. I woke up the next morning excited to tell my buddies about my night. I didnt know about the attacks until I got to school and our teacher was listening to the news...obviously my news took a back seat to the attacks, until lunch time."
5. "She was from NY..."
"I got laid because of the 9/11 attacks. Quite literally i would not have met this woman if not for the attacks. She knocked on my door asking to watch the news because she was from ny and didnt have a tv of her own."
4. "There was a girl on a lot of missing posters..."
"There was a girl on a lot of missing posters back then. She went missing on 9/11 but didn't have any reason to be at the towers. Around 2011, they finally learned that she had a one night stand with a guy who worked in the towers and brought him lunch the next day. Terrible timing. She was from a conservative Indian family so hadn't told them where she was."
3. "Everything turned into a ghost town..."
"I woke up to a phone call from my mom, who didn't know where I was, saying "we've been bombed." I was a teen at the time and thought we were all just going to die. The weirdest part of that day was how everything turned into a ghost town. Driving home. No cars. Everything was closed. It felt like everyone died and I had missed it. I've never felt that same fear since that day."
2. "I'll never forget him..."
We met on 9/10 and he stayed the night at my house. He was a friend of a friend visiting from Seattle. We spent most of the day together in shock, eyes glued to the news. He went back to Seattle two days later and we haven't spoken since. I don't even remember his name but I'll never forget him."
1. "It was awful..."
"Not that awkward. It was awful and the awfulness was very...humanizing. We watched tv and had coffee. Nobody went to work (we were in nyc). We met up later that week. Stayed friends for a while. I just remember how sad it was."
