But is pinning down the definition actually useful? I hooked Alice up with Tom last year, and now they're getting married. Why would a stranger ask me if I use Tinder? Because only one man reported any unwanted sex, we could not test for significant hook up x gender interactions. Why does every girl on a Tinder is a dog lover or not for a hookup? Assemble or wire a mechanism, as in Dick helped us hook up the stereo system. Connect a mechanism with a main source, as in The computer had not yet been hooked up to the mainframe.
In theory, if all students adopted Holman's definition, they would all have a better idea of what exactly their peers meant when they reported a weekend hookup.
'Hooking Up' -- What Does It Really Mean?
I hope we'll be able to hook up for coffee or something while you're home for Christmas break. In a sexist sexual climate, "we hooked up" could be the great equalizer. It means that she is inviting you to have sex with her! She may sudgest a hookup meaning a coffee date or something in a more direct conduct of human nature. Do relationships from Tinder get serious, or do people just use the app to hookup? It's a way for them [students] to communicate about it but without having to reveal details.
