7 Ways to Tell It’s Just a Hookup

Pin it

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!)

 

1

It Only Happens While Drunk

Maybe you hang out sober, but you certainly don’t hook up unless some sort of alcohol is involved.

2

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.

3

You Only Do Pre-Hookup Things

A drink? Sure. A picnic in the park? Not gonna happen with a hookup.

4

You Don’t Call Each Other

You only text or email.

5.

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

6.

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.

7.

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.
