Can you just be friends with someone after you hookup?

Like you just had 1 night with them, and didn't want to fuck anymore and just wanted to be friends?

  • Most of my hookups have become repeat hookups. I have made some wonderful friends by hooking up with them as strangers then we became friends. I have one friend who I've been trying to get into my panties for over 40 years but it doesn't look like that will happen. However I can't say I hooked up with someone once then never fucked again but remained friends.

  • I know people who do this all the time. Sometimes they don't bring emotion into it. Just a bit of fun for them i guess. Its not really my thing though

    • And they nvr have sex or kiss again? If I do this, and touch him over and over I might not handle it.

    • Do you mean not handle it in he will grow feelings or you will?

    • Either or.

  • I mean there will probably be one sided sexual tension but a friendship should work as long as the feelings are sexual and not romantic.

  • I'm friends with everyone I hookup with. No sense being rude about it.

    • How do you handle that they're fucking other people and still talking to you?

    • What do you mean? I'm fuckijg other people and still talking to them, so why would it even upset me if they do the same?

    • I'd get jealous if I liked him!

  • Yes you can. But it won't work in every case. Why would you hook up with someone and want to remain friends, but not have sex again with them? Assuming it was good sex. If you are friends, had sex and enjoyed it, and then are feeling horny again, why not hook up again?

  • Bad idea. Never have. Never will.

  • yes you can...

  • I think that it's hard to be "just friends" after something like that, for better and worse.

  • Yes but it's highly unlikely to happen. You two met with the intention of never seeing each other gain, so turning that around may be hard to accomplish.

  • I'm friends with several people I've hooked up with!

  • of course you can, but it might be a bit more difficult after that. but depends from person to person

  • Yes.

    Does that happen often? No.

  • I don't think friends as the sex memory would always be there. I would probably think about having sex with them again

  • No, I couldn't.

    • I agree

  • Always!

  • I'd say yeah. I once hooked up with this guy I had known for a long time though we weren't really close friends. After the whole thing we actually started talking more and became closer friends..

  • im just friends with my ex

  • Nope.

  • Interesting. I think so!

    What about being friends (met her when she had a bf) by virtue of getting on with her in a preassigned course group at university. Keeping in touch and clicking. Then when she becomes single, can you hookup and still be friends?

    • Can you?

  • Yes you can. I'm not proud of this but I've slept with almost every female friend I've ever had and some were multiple times and some it was just a one night thing but I'm still friends with most of them. So yes it's possible. Just have an open mind and don't dwell on things or let emotions get the best of you. And don't get paranoid thinking about what the other person might be thinking.

    • How did you achieve this? If they become single (having met them in a preassigned workgroup at uni, clicking, but she has a bf) after you already know her, how? Really like them, but also want to be friends after any intimacy?

    • @howardque well they were all different situations, some were friends I made through other friends, some were friends from school or work, some were my parents friends kids that I knew for a long time some were single and some were not... One was my moms friends daughter. I wasn't single and neither was she. I also never make the first move and I let them come to me. Anyway we met again at a wedding after not seeing eachother in a few years and we exchanged info but we clicked right away. She was in town again about a month later and we hooked up. Then we continued to hook up and have a long term Long distance relationship for almost a year. She left her be but I didn't leave my girlfriend and we had a fight and didn't speak for a few months. Then I apologized and now 4 years later she's truly one of my best friends and I genuinely love her. I'm not in love with her but we're awesome as friends. Plus there's always this little fun sexual tension between us that's kind of awesome.

    • @howardque the key is to not over think things and let them happen naturally. And if it's just a 1 night thing and you both agree on it when you're done you just act as if it's just another thing you did with your buddy and not make a big deal of it

  • I don't do hook ups and even if I did I don't have any women friends, so no I wouldn't. I'm only friends with men.

  • Personally, I don't hookup with someone who I don't have feelings for; so no, it can't really work out.

    • But fi there's feelings on hookups doesn't it hurt when he's gone?

    • Yes, especially if at the time you don't know it's a hookup. My last time was almost 3 months ago, and I'm not over it.

    • I can be really emo too! Maybe, I'll... How often do you see him?
