Just a few years ago, the word hookup could still mean going out with buddies or chicks for an alcohol party, without getting laid. Today, this definition is too popular and usually means casual sex itself.
“When I’m signing up on a hookup dating app, I certainly know what it means so I am ready to get laid casually”, Melinda says. “The same when my friends are joking about our possible hookups.
In a today culture, it means only one thing, a casual affair. It also means very quick sex at the club, sometimes within 15-30 minutes. I am always explaining this to the folks who aren’t aware”.
“When I was younger, I thought hookuping is equal to hanging out together. Then I have noticed most of people around use this word for describing the quick sex they had with someone, or with a stranger.
I am not making such silly mistakes since and say hookup only when I do mean my brief sexual experience I have had recently. Thus, it doesn’t create any misunderstandings between me and my friends”.
