What was your relationship status at the time? Single

How would you best classify this hookup? One-night stand

How long did you know the person before this hookup? For less than a year

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 a short brunette, pale but not super pale. We were friends but I only truly knew her through other people.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? It wasn’t very spontaneous. We were texting for a while and planned to have sex at some point. She invited me over to her house to hang out. Once there she talked about how inexperienced she was (though not a virgin) and how she was wanting to change that.

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 strictly missionary and uncomfortable. She just laid there, stiff as a board and not knowing what to do. She wasn’t a good kisser either. I was using protection but after some time, I felt the condom break but we continued and I pulled out when I orgasmed a little after. It was just an inexperienced girl not knowing what to do and it ended sort of the same way, uncomfortable.

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, one

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? She fell asleep starfished on the bed with her two dogs so there was no room for me to sleep comfortably so I left around 3 am. The next day, I did not regret the hookup but I knew it would never happen again. She is still a friend of mine but we don’t talk much now, which is fine because we never talked that much before.
