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 somewhat attractive, a little on the voluminous side, but not really fat. She held a high position in a well-known German company. At that time, I was starved for approval and sex and ready to accept pretty much anyone. We met through a dating ad in a magazine, pre-internet-dating. I did not think much about her at all, I just wanted to fuck somebody.
How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We had had a drink at a bar and talked. Some days later, we went to the movies. Being the nice naive me, I asked if I could put my arm around her shoulders. She said OK. Then I suggested we go to my place.
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? We sat on my couch for a while, made out a bit. While I went for a bathroom break, she placed herself in my bed naked. I licked her pussy, fingered her, but my dick did not get hard enough for fucking because the attraction was not strong. I was trying to be nice about it, but the fact was there. We talked a bit, and I think she went home that night.
How sexually satisfying was this hookup? A little
Did you have an orgasm? No, not even close
Did your partner have an orgasm? I don’t know
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? There was some weird back-and-forth during the following month. I was too shy and too insecure to hook up with anyone else. We talked on the phone and she said, that I had called her a few times in the middle of the night and that that was not cool. A few weeks later, she called and apologized since she had found out that the true identity of the night caller was some other guy. We went to a fleamarket together and had some lame conversation. She helped me pick sunglasses. That was the end of it.
