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 petit, and cute with short hair. Nice round breasts that weren’t too big but just enough. I knew her for years as she was the younger sister of one of my friends. We dated briefly years before the hookup but she was broke it off before we ever had sex. I always wanted to be with her and thought she was the one.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? It was at a family party that her sister, my friend, was hosting. We were exchanging glances thoughout the night and brief conversation. She messaged me the next day and wanted to know if I wanted to hang out with her that night.

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? I was still a virgin at the time and she was not. We started making out and she would help me and make sure that I was comfortable and ok to proceed at each step. I gently started fondling her boobs and grabbing her ass. We moved to the bedroom and got undressed. I started to kiss her body and licked her nipples. I came down to her vagina and tried to lick her clit. She had to help me out a little but I eventually found it. She, in return, sucked my dick. I penetrated her vagina and we fucked in a few positions until I was about to come and she told me to pull out and I came on the sheets. It felt so good when I was inside her but not as good as I expected. She talked me through the whole experience and was really sweet.

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?

But I felt like we could move forward with this. After a few more hookups she told me she just started dating another guy and they were serious. I felt hurt and betrayed.
