There’s a thin line between dating and just hooking up. Here’s how to tell the difference:
1. You’ve never been on a date
Have all your “dates” been hanging out at their place or your place? You can’t be dating if you don’t go on dates.
2. You’ve never met their friends
If you just started dating this isn’t that big of a deal, but if you’re a couple months in and you haven’t met at least one of their friends, that’s a huge red flag.
3. They’ve never met your friends
Same goes for them meeting your friends. If they’re avoiding engaging in your social life it’s a pretty sure sign they’re not taking you seriously.
4. When you ask what you are, they evade the question
Maybe you’ve learned a thing or two about being direct and you’ve asked them. If they’re not being upfront about you are, or aren’t, that’s a huge warning sign.
5. You only talk or hang during Booty Call hours
If you only ever hear from them between 11pm – 3am chances are you’re just hooking up. If all of your hangouts are planned or occur during this time, sorry, but you guys are just hooking up.
Hopefully now you can recognize the difference between dating and hooking up. No judgment if you’re just a hookup, as long as you want to be. If not, now you know how to recognize if you are.
Good Luck Out There.
