Never-ending One Night Stand

How long ago did this hookup happen? A few months ago

What was your relationship status at the time? Same as current status

How would you best classify this hookup? Fuck-buddies / Booty call

How long did you know the person before this hookup? For more than 3 years

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? He was a friend who I thought would be more at some point but that ship sailed a while back. A mutual friend introduced us and we ended up hooking up shortly thereafter. I never thought I’d see him again until he added me on facebook and asked me to dinner. From there on, we were dating/hooking up about once a week and then he’d ghost. This happened on and off for about a year. He got a girlfriend, acted like friends and backed off. After (I assume) the relationship ended, he called me up again and we hooked up one more time. Then another time six months later we were on again for a short period. Then a few months past and it was the last time I had seen him.

I saw him as someone I really enjoyed spending time with and we already had amazing sex. Part of me wished it was more, but I tend to build people up in my heads.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? He texted me when I was out seeing a band play. He told me I should come over after.

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? He went down on me, which he probably only did once in the 30+ times we had hooked up. That was a surprise. We had vaginal sex, nothing too kinky but I do love it when we do it doggystyle. He’s a pretty incredible lover. He loves to cuddle. We did it in the morning too. Best wakeup ever.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, more than one

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, multiple

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? We went to bed, woke up, hooked up again and went to breakfast. I felt a little confused about the situation because of the way he treats me. Why are we at breakfast and talking about our families?!

I think he doesn’t want anything serious from me. We’ve never talked about it and likely never will.

I hope he finds happiness because I honestly think he’s confused about what he wants.
