Hook Up VS. Girlfriend/Boyfriend?

~~What makes you see someone as a hook up, compared to relationship material?

Is it the emotional connection?

Physical attractiveness?

Intelligence?

Does it depend how desperate they come across or needy... etc?

  • if I hook up with someone and we both seemed to have enjoyed ourselves, but not in a way that seems like anyone could have pleased them just as well (either because they are desperate or because they don't care who they are with), I'll want to hook up with them again. If this persists it may as well just be a relationship.

  • The standard for a relationship is MUCH higher than for a hookup. The girl for a relationship must be very intelligent, very attractive, and have a great and connective personality.

    The girl for a hookup has to be not ugly, not fat, and not perceived as a high risk of STDs.

  • Emotional connection.

    I don't do hookups but I'm assuming that's part of it. I had a friend who said it was also physical attractiveness. He'd sleep with just about anyone but the girl had to be hotter for him to want to date her. That's not my thing though 🤷🏼‍♀️

  • There is an emotional connection it's past the sexual stage. You know and care for each other

  • All those things matter

  • Hookups are so dissatisfying. Relationship is the only way to go.

    • Hookups bring temporary happiness 💯💯💯

  • Physical appearance is the biggest thing. Then emotional connection

  • Hookups bring temporary happiness where Long-term Romance
    can bring everlasting love and happiness.

  • I don't do hookups.

  • Never had a hook up or a girlfriend 😢

  • Hook ups are immediate sexual relief. Long term boyfriend or gf's are everything else, including sexual relief !! :)

  • When I didn't get her last name.

  • All of the above i guess. Some girls i feel like yeah i want to tap that or maybe she's not wanting a boyfriend but is ok with the sex. Where as some girls i would like to cuddle with.

    • Interesting.

    • @NickiB divert your eyes!! No!!! Don't look!!! Lol

    • It's too late.😕 i feel like I walked in on my parents doing it.☹

    • Show All
  • I don't do hookups.

  • We just need to click and then spend time more often. If she's hot, but there's no way I can see a future, I'd be more likely to just hook up.

  • I never do hookups, just relationships

  • Honestly just timing and personality.

  • Keziah, so good to. See you again. When I meet a girl I don’t really think about a relationship. If it happens, it happens. But she has to be at least cute, good personality, intelligent. Usually, I am just looking for a girl to fuck, but in many instances we are friends for a long time.

  • I think a strong sense of self worth is important. A girl that will spread her legs for just any guy is going to be seen as just that, but a girl who makes it clear that she won't be used for quick pleasure is more desirable for a relationship.

  • Their morals separate hookup from relationship

  • Isk tbh
