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? I sat down next to Tom at a random sports bar while I was traveling for work. I was there on my own, bored by my hotel room, and really wasn’t looking for anything. Truth be told, I’d already had one random hookup on that trip (the subject of a different post) and didn’t want to be greedy.

Tom was nice looking, probably mid 30s, average height and build, sarcastic smile. It was raining when I got to the bar, and my wet umbrella brushed against him when I climbed into the seat. He was watching soccer, I was watching basketball. We chatted a bit off and on. I thought he was cute and funny. I made a comment about never getting hit on at bars, and he replied, “You mean until now?” I asked if he was hitting on me (genuine question, I can never tell). When he said yes, the mood changed like something might actually happen.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? We flirted for a few hours over drinks and then it was suddenly time to leave. We paid our checks and went toward the door. His place was close by, but my hotel was around the corner and I was more comfortable there, so we walked to the hotel hand in hand.

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 got to the hotel and we both went at each other. We were naked on the bed before he stopped and let me know he didn’t have any condoms. I told him I had some, and got them from my bag. He looked like a kid on Christmas.

I don’t actually remember all the positions we used, but Tom was definitely decent in bed. He was recently separated and I got the sense he hadn’t had sex for a while, and definitely not casual sex with a stranger, so he was enthusiastic and appreciative. We didn’t talk much except to direct each other as to what we wanted. It was good, cathartic.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Very

Did you have an orgasm? No, but I was close

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? We finished and hung out on the bed for a little bit. I offered to let him stay in case he wanted round 2 in the morning, but he wanted to go home, so I had a great night of sleep instead.

The next day, I realized that I didn’t actually know his name. I did know the name off the company where he worked, so I did a few minutes of research trying to track him down. Then I decided that I didn’t actually care, so I let it goo.
