Five Ways to Tell if He Simply Wants to Hook up ...

By Sasha

I’ve collected these observations from my own experience or from my girlfriends who made sure that I’m warned. Men can be such predators, they said.

Let’s define “Hook Up”

(Urban Dictionary)
verb: to engage in any type of sexual activity.
noun: 1. purposely ambiguous, equivocal word to describe almost any sexual action. usually used to exaggerate or minimize what exactly happened. a hook-up can range from a make-out session to full out sex.

2 Person You Hook up with

Informal. to join or become associated with

The former is the definition that we are referring to while the latter is still a bit ambiguous, however, it has captured the thought in essence.

Let me list some ways on how to detect these predators, so, you can make a run for it.
• From the moment you guys started talking, his stares can be likened to leers.• His touching you becomes a little too frequent — lingers at best, exploratory at worst.• He decides to give some special attention to your hair, i.e. compliments that it’s smooth, playing with it, etc.• He makes plan to move to another “un-named” venue, masking it as “let’s see where the road will take us” sorta’ thing, which usually ends up with the two of you “parking”.• He sets a meet up LATE at night, passing it off as having a midnight snack or drinks at HIS place (it’s a booty call, girl!).

I’m sure there are more to this list. So, ladies, if you know of any other way to tell, do share. I’m sure the gesture will be well appreciated. If you have stories to share in support of these things, do tell! We’d love to hear from you!

Boys, if you happen to stumble upon this post, know that this is written just for fun and was not meant to offend anyone. If you have something to say in defense to your gender, you can leave a comment, we can all discuss it. We’d especially appreciate it more if you choose to add onto the list, though.
