I think different people have different meanings for the term “hooking up”. I always wonder exactly what it means when they use the term on shows like Jersey Shore and the Hills.
Is it making out? Or having sex? I’ve heard people use for both instances.
Does it depend where you live?

In my area it means having sex.

I’ve also heard it be used for both. But lately it seems like it’s more about sex. Like “yeah we kissed blah blah blah but didn’t hook up.” It used to be more innocent to me, not so much anymore.

it depends who is saying it… it can be let go out and spend some time or lets go out and have sex… it depends who say it

I think the definition has changed as we have gotten older. THink about it, when you “hooked up” with someone in high school, it ment much more innocent transgressions that it does for us now that we’re older!
now, i take it as having sex.

To me it means making out. But to most guys I know it means having sex. It’s variable depending on who’s using the word.

When I use to say it I would mean it as sex. Most of my guy friends use it to mean sex also only because they dont see making out as being a big deal and needing to be mentioned. LOL

I consider “hooking up” anything more than kissing/over the clothes stuff (which I would classify as “making out”). I suppose sex counts, but usually I’d just say “had sex” (or more colorful language) if I was talking about actual sex. Then again, I don’t consider HJs, BJs, etc. “sex” where some people do.

I think I take it as having sex. But I think that’s what I’ve always thought of it as…

In college it meant fooling around/everything but actual intercourse. So you either “hooked up” or “had sex.”

In my area hooking up means to have sex. When they say, “Let’s hook up…” it can mean let’s hook up for lunch!” (completely innocent, year right!) or it can mean let’s hook up and have a one night stand or just for a booty call.

Over here it’s mainly referred to a one night stand. As in “Yeah, I hooked up with her a few times”. But it’s not a very common saying.

I always thought it meant “sex”, but then I met a few girls from New Mexico who used to say they “hooked up” with guys all the time and I thought they were such tramps until they explained that all they were doing was a little heavy smooching.
Silly me 🙂

I have only heard it meaning that you are having sex with them without being in a relationship.

I think of it as the weird place between making out and sex.
