Had a couple of hook-ups, didn’t regret them at all but they weren’t anything special.
Then I had a friend-with-benefits who I dated on and off.
But I'm really excited about love and believe in it all.
It satisfied both of our needs without the pressure of a relationship.
But soon, he got abusive, saying he wanted nothing to do with me sober and then asking to have drunken sex. I think that friends-with-benefits can work, but you have to treat each other like friends.
– Matt*I’m happy being single, but I also like the idea that there’s someone out there who likes you, thinks about you all the time, and wants to be with you.
Guys don’t ever approach me and people say it’s because I’m intimidating but I literally look like I’m 12 years old so I don’t get it.
– Sarah*Hooking up does seem fun, but I prefer the consistency and dependability of always having someone who will be there at the end of the day.
– Liza*Restless Hearts When I was part of the hook-up culture, all I wanted was a boyfriend.
I tend to go on dates and hook up at the beginning of a relationship, which seems to work well for me.
–Chloe*I met this guy through a mutual friend and we started hooking up.
I wasn’t that into it and I didn’t want to be in a relationship.
In the end it’s all about dating, but only if it’s with the right girl that makes it worth it.
– Hans*I’ll do the hook-up thing for a while, get tired of it, get a girlfriend, get tired of being a relationship, and then do the hook-up thing again.
