– Hans*I’ll do the hook-up thing for a while, get tired of it, get a girlfriend, get tired of being a relationship, and then do the hook-up thing again.– Mark*Friends With Benefits I think dating still exists to a degree in college, but it's intermingled with the hook-up culture.I tend to go on dates and hook up at the beginning of a relationship, which seems to work well for me.–Chloe*I met this guy through a mutual friend and we started hooking up.It was hard to come to terms with it and get over the hurt, but I did get closure in an unexpected and nice way. Moving through different stages with this guy — from heartbreak to dysfunction to honest, real friendship — has taught me more in sixth months than I've learned in years.
My rules are: either person can end it whenever, no harm done, no questions asked.Last week we spoke to three sociologists who debunked some of the myths surrounding college dating — namely that hook-up culture is more of a subculture, and yes, dating still exists. We interviewed 30 campus co-eds to find out, and asked them whether or not they prefer hooking up to dating or vice versa.Their answers span the entire relationship spectrum, proving that attitudes towards college relationships are diverse and changing. Everyone at college is afraid of losing touch after graduation, so taking a chance on keeping someone around in a serious way is scary.But now that I have a boyfriend, all I want is to hook up with other people.– Anita*I came in with a girlfriend freshman year, which I ended up regretting.Every once in awhile we do something fun like cook together or go out together but we usually just hang out at each other’s apartments.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.But I'm really excited about love and believe in it all.I’d still fall for someone regardless of whether we’re graduating.– Bobby*I guess I’m a serial monogamist, but I’ve also hooked up a lot.I’ve been in five relationships in my four years of college — one of them was five days so I’m not sure if it counts — and between those relationships, I’ve hooked up with 34 girls by my definition of hooking up.
