    (CNN) -- When Jennifer Nicholas sees television shows or movies where characters "hook up" or have sex with "friends with benefits," she cringes, because that's how she got herpes.

    "Getting an STD wasn't even something that crossed my mind," said Nicholas, 39, who learned that she had herpes at age 22. "One day I'm at the doctor's office and it was, 'Surprise! You've got herpes.' "

    Getting a disease is pretty awful (especially for women) but the emotional carnage that these hook-ups cause a lot of women is even worse.

    I've known too many women who wasted a huge amount of time partying and sleeping around for years and years. Then they suddenly want the whole husband/child/house thing. Unfortunately, the kind of guys they consider suitable are already involved. Worse yet, if a suitable guy isn't attached but he has known the woman for any length of time, he's less likely to consider her suitable. There are party girls and there are potential spouses but there isn't always a lot of overlap there. :(

    STD's are like peanut butter. Not much good if you don't spread it around.

    Ditto for the man crop too.

    I never slept around, because if I ever got even close my mother's face would appear in a little grey cloud above me with that 'look' and put a damper on everything.
    I always thought I had to marry my victims first.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Almost all the females out here are the party type... Three are interested, I however, am not. All three have reputations of being doorknobs....

    My mom is crazy about a lot of things, but she gave me pretty good advice about sleeping with men outside of marriage. She told me "every man wants to marry a virgin, but none wants to leave any virgins behind in their past".


    She went one further and told me that my dad married her because she was the first girl to say no to him. That was information that I really didn't need to know when I was 13 or 14.
