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.
Hooking up is superficial and the human aspect is completely lost.
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.
Don't lie to one another about relationship-y things.
No feelings — if someone gets feelings, we need to either end things or both need to take a step back and reevaluate.
