Whether your definition of hookup is a kiss, making out, or sex, there is still the same underlying meaning: there are most likely little to no mutual feelings involved in the act. Why settle into something where you must invest your emotions when things can be less complicated and you get to have a little fun along the way?
Many of us don’t want to be in anything serious, and that is totally okay. For some, our future is our number one priority, and we want to find ourselves, so we don’t need somebody else to accomplish that. Others don’t want anything serious because like I said before, they just want a fling: something fun that they don’t have to wrap their heads around. Then, there are the other’s like me. I am tired of these short spurs of excitement with a guy that I don’t care about one bit; I want to have those same giddy feelings that I did in the past and take the time to develop a relationship with somebody where there are feelings slowly but surely. I don’t want to only feel a second of joy, but I want to share a bond of dedication, devotion, and warmth with somebody who feels the same way that I do. Am I saying I am looking for marriage right now? Heck no. I want to live my life. All I am saying is that I don’t want to be apart of an abrupt hookup where I barely know the guy, or don’t even know his name. Is this too much to ask for?
