Want to find someone online to rock your world?
Then hook-up sites are definitely the right choice for you!
Hook-up dating is a perfectly legitimate way to find a partner for casual sex, and whether you meet online or at a book store doesn’t make much difference.
What does make a difference is that the Internet is the perfect playground not only for anonymity but for praying on unsuspecting victims as well.
Therefore, it doesn’t hurt to go over some of the do’s and don’ts on hooking up over the Internet so that you get the most out of the experience while still staying safe.
Do: Enjoy Anonymity
The ability to stay anonymous while cruising through the world on online hook-ups is phenomenal and you should definitely take advantage of it. Not looking for a serious relationship gives you the freedom to be whoever you want to be without the fear of being judged.
Anything goes online as long as the other person has the same preferences as you do so make yourself clear in terms of your attitude towards sex in public, threesomes, and your general recreational sex habits.
Do: Stay Safe
Meeting someone online can be extremely exciting and brief hook-ups are definitely a thing, but people are often dishonest online so be careful whom you’re meeting, as well as when and where.
Chances are you’ll be meeting someone you’ve never seen before so picking a public place is certainly a good idea. Also, trust your instincts and if something feels strange, just leave.
Online predators count on their victims to feel ashamed afterwards, but exposing the person on the site where you met and talking to friends about it can ease the shock and protect others too.
Do: Stay Comfortable
Comfort is key to any good hook-up. Casual hook-ups can be many things, including messy and embarrassing, and making sure you’re on comfortable territory is crucial. If you prefer going back to your place, say so openly, and if neutral terrain is what you’re looking for, such as a hotel room, be prepared to split the cost.
Don’t: Expect a Call
Don’t expect the other person to be romantic, to send you flowers to your work or call you the next day to see how you’re doing. Keep in mind that casual hookups rarely turn into relationships so make sure you’re clear on what you really want.
Don’t: Take The Hook-up Too Seriously
The point of online hook-ups is to have fun and enjoy casual sexual encounters with no strings attached. Most hook-ups turn out to be one-night stands and in all likelihood you will never see that person again.
Don’t: Overstay Your Welcome
Hook-ups are made to be short and sweet regardless of where you meet, so when you wake up the next day and you’re in bed with the person you slept with, don’t stay for breakfast, a long shower or any other activity that lasts longer than 10-15 minutes. Politely pick up your stuff and go, no harm done.
