Recently, a “trend” piece was published about how the majority of college guys prefer hookup dating over relationships. Naturally, female college students are at an uproar over this alarming pattern. Here’s the thing: You’ve probably been hookup dating for maybe four to eight years, and hopefully have another four to eight years of hookup dating in the future. And if you are fortunate enough, you still have 30 – 50 years of one relationship to look forward to. Give it a rest, girls. Here are a few reasons why men choose hookup dating over a relationship.
Variety is the spice of life. It helps us to avoid turning into zombie robots. It even helps define men who they really are and what they want in a woman. You go hookup dating with just one girl and you haven’t the slightest idea what other lips, boobs, butts, and vaginas feel, smell and taste like.
• It’s convenient
Most men, if not all, are creatures of convenience. And while most would argue that it can’t get any more convenient than having a steady, dedicated girlfriend who can be at your side, in your bed waiting, this is highly debatable. If you fuck it up with your girlfriend, you’ll be spending days, weeks or months in the doghouse. Now if you fuck it up with a hook up, you can either give her a half-ass apology and hope to keep her in your circles or move on to the next girl that comes along. It’s that simple.
• It’s inexpensive
It’s pretty obvious that being single is way less expensive than being in a relationship. You will often have to dine in expensive restaurants and your girlfriend will go for the finer things in life. There will be birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, vacations, etc. Well, you get the picture.
• It’s educational
This goes hand-in-hand with variety as well, because the more you hook up with different girls, the more knowledgeable you are, not just in matters of sex, but also as a person. You develop different social skills like listening, empathy, sympathy and ultimately become well-rounded.
• It’s less stressful
It seems that everyone is stressed these days for whatever reason, so why add to the stress with being in a committed relationship where you follow all these rules and regulations? Yeah, I thought so.
