How can you form a long lasting, dedicated, long-term relationship from an encounter(and that’s all it can be called) that’s designed from the start to NOT generate that kind of relationship? Simply? You can’t. That’s akin to lighting a hand grenade into a disorganized library and expecting the explosion to reorganize everything.
Hooking up has replaced traditional dating on college campuses, and has also become prevalent in the general population and culture. The hallmark of hooking up is the clear understanding between both parties that the encounter will be free from any expectations for further contact. It is designed to avoid the possibility of commitment. However, hooking up is still the primary pathway to a potential romantic relationship.
