– Matt*I’m happy being single, but I also like the idea that there’s someone out there who likes you, thinks about you all the time, and wants to be with you.

Guys don’t ever approach me and people say it’s because I’m intimidating but I literally look like I’m 12 years old so I don’t get it.

I definitely prefer it to hooking up because it brings more of a human element back to sex. – Kara*I prefer dating to hook-ups, myself having been in two serious relationships during college, one of which is still going post-graduation. You see all types of relationships, and it just depends on what works for the individual.

– Sarah*Hooking up does seem fun, but I prefer the consistency and dependability of always having someone who will be there at the end of the day.

– Liza*Restless Hearts When I was part of the hook-up culture, all I wanted was a boyfriend.When you date someone you get to know them and you form a real connection.Hooking up is superficial and the human aspect is completely lost.I do have some anxiety about it though, because it’s been almost two years and he hasn’t said, “I love you.” – Isabella*I prefer dating to hooking up because of the level of comfort and support you receive from being exclusive.–Stacie*I love having a cheerleader, someone always rooting for me, being there for me through a long and stressful week, and I love being that for someone in return.– Bobby*I guess I’m a serial monogamist, but I’ve also hooked up a lot.
