    No, not at all. That's a "one night stand".

    NO!

    "One-day-at-a-time" relationship is not the same as a "one night stand".

    A one day at a tie relationship is like "we'll take it one day at a time, and see how it goes".

    What a low-vibe forum this is
    A simple question went down to prove the differense btw "One-day-at-a-time" and "one night stand".

    First of all "one night stand" means - FLING!
    "One-day-at-a-time" means - relationship.

    Now. My hard guess wud be -
    сеймоментныe отношения

    What do u recon?

    There are relations like:
    a. to have a sex in the toilet of a night club

    b. to invite someone to some place and have
    a sex there so that tomorrow you both
    forget each other never to meet again

    c. to have sex for a week and then part

    d. ...month...

    etc.

    I think, the meaning of that term is somewhere between b and c.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    If that is your explanation, then your variant is wrong.

    isn't one-day-at-a-time relationship kind of like a non-commitment rlationship?

    Not necissarily having sex. maybe even no sex at all. But even so, I think its something that both parties don't commit to long-term and just take it "one day at a time" "step by step" "one step at a time" or however you want to put it.

    I'd say what you're describing would be better phrased a 'no-strings' relationship. To me, a 'one-day-at-a-time' relationship is different to that, it's a relationship that's free from the burden or the pressure of expectations, but it's not necessarily casual.

    Yeah, I don't know where these other jokers are coming from. I think TATY was being sarcastic, and the other posters just piled on. As far as I know, it means to take something slowly, without rushing (the exact OPPOSITE of a one-night stand). It's similar to the expression of "day by day". In this context, I'd say it just means these people aren't looking to force ahead, to rush a new relationship, to be overaggresive, etc. For example:
    "Mark's last relationship ended in divorce. He's very cautious right now -- he's just taking things one-day-at-a-time."
    "Jenna told Michael she's not ready to move in with him -- she's the one-day-at-a-time kind of person."
    And similarly:
    "-Wow. This is a really difficult class! How am I ever going to learn Russian?"
    "-Don't be overwhelmed! Just do all the homework, and take it one day at a time!"
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I'd say that a " one day at a time relationship" is not a relationship at all. It is just the begining of something that may or my not turn into a relationship after further time is spent together.
