Tell us about your PARTNER(S). What did they look like? How well did you know them, had you hooked up before? How/Where did you meet them? How did you feel about them before the hookup? She was my next-door neighbor. We had chatted and flirted a bit. I liked her, because she was pretty and bubbly. But she was young, so I didn’t think a relationship would be on the cards.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? No planning on my part. I was home one night and she knocked on the door and invited me round to her flat. She told me her flatmates had gone out and left her on her own, and that it was her birthday. After a while we started kissing, then had sex.
What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? It was a bit short and awkward. Both of us were a bit embarrassed, I think. We just kissed for a bit, then had straight sex. I think I wanted to go down on her, but she didn’t let me. The sex wasn’t amazing, and I came quite fast, but I liked her and her body a lot, so it was still very enjoyable.

What happened AFTER the hookup? How did you feel about it the next day? What are/were your expectations/hopes for the future with this person? How do you feel about them now? I felt great about it, very flattered that this lovely woman had chosen me to help stave off her birthday blues. I tried to call her a couple of times, but she didn’t answer my calls, and she moved away shortly afterward. I don’t think she was hurt or upset, just didn’t want to take things any further. I hope that’s right.
