How to NOT fuck-up a Hook Up :-)

After charming the object of your desire through a fast and furious exchange of emails and/or phone calls, you finally manage to score that hook up. Still, there are things you can do to totally screw it all up. Before that big date, make sure you avoid these common bad behavior blunders.

Not Looking Like Your Photos
If you misrepresent yourself by posting fake or outdated photos of yourself, you’ll only be wasting each other’s time. Once your date realizes you’re not the person in the photos - or that you look significantly different than the photos - 9 times out of 10 they’ll walk out on you (and you gotta wonder about the 1 person who’ll actually still sleep with you).


Being Unclean
Nothing turns off a new sex partner faster than having bad breath or any kind of offensive body odor. Before that hot sex date, take a shower, brush your teeth, and use a little fragrance or body spray.


Being Overly Aggressive
When you’re meeting someone for a first-time hook-up, it’s natural to be a little anxious. That’s why it’s important for everyone involved to be on the same page. Monitor one another’s comfort levels, keep things light, and don’t make moves unless it feels totally right. Respect is key when engaging in casual hook ups: overstepping your bounds could mean an early end to the date.


Changing The Game Plan
When you and your hook up plan to meet, discuss everything beforehand and stick to the plan. For example, don’t bring another person into the mix if you’ve already told your date it’s only going to be you and them.


Not Having A Hook Up-Friendly Pad
A clean place with zero distractions and all the right accessories can improve the chances of everything going your way. If you have roommates who are usually there playing video games, get rid of them. Also make sure to have the right supplies for your hook up. Don’t have condoms? Run to the corner store, stat. It’s also nice to have plenty of bathroom needs for your guest: fresh towels, a toothbrush, mouthwash. For maximum effect, light scented candles and play chill music.


Being An Amateur
Not knowing what you’re doing in the bed could also screw up a perfectly planned hook up. Trust us, the last thing you want to happen is for the other person to stop and say “let’s just talk” when you’re already revved up and ready to go. Buy a how-to book or video about how to enhance your sex skills.


So the lesson to be learned here: just because you’ve scored a hook up doesn’t always mean that the deal’s sealed. Play your cards right, and you’ll be playing with a cute new sex mate. Play them wrong, and you’ll be playing with…well, you know.
