7 Ways to Tell It’s Just a Hookupby Chiara Atik on April 09, 2012
Are you two just hooking up, or is there something more going on? In can be infuriatingly difficult to tell sometimes! Below are 7 signs that it’s definitely just a hookup. (And here are 7 ways to avoid “the hookup zone“, if you want to!)
It Only Happens While Drunk
Maybe you hang out sober, but you certainly don’t hook up unless some sort of alcohol is involved.
You Never Plan in Advance
You’ll randomly see each other at a party, or maybe text earlier in the day about plans that night.
You Only Do Pre-Hookup Things
A drink? Sure. A picnic in the park? Not gonna happen with a hookup.
You Don’t Call Each Other
You only text or email.
You Rarely Eat Breakfast Together
Hook-ups will get dressed in the morning, kiss one another on the cheek, and head out — MAYBE throw back a cup of coffee. If it’s more than a hookup, one of you will usually suggest breakfast…
You Don’t Go to Parties Together
Sure, you’ve been known to surreptitiously leave parties together, but you certainly don’t arrive as a couple. You never make plans to grab a bite or a drink beforehand: that’s date stuff.
You Don’t Text In Between
After hooking up with a date or someone who is interested in you, romantically, you can expect to get a follow-up email or text from them within within the first day or so after hooking up. With a hookup, you won’t hear anything until the next time you guys, well, hook up.
