Part II: The Hook-Up

If you read my last post, and you were a bit confused, this should clear up some loose ends.

What I was essentially pointing towards with my previous post was our society’s emphasis on hooking-up when it should be on getting to know the person and their character.

Assuming we all strive and believe in having a meaningful and lasting relationship with someone, the current hook-up emphasis is detrimental to this.

I’d like to ask a question: what is most important in a relationship? Is it the physical connection, e.g. sex? Is it an intellectual connection? Or is it an emotional connection?

Going off the original assumption, I think it is extremely difficult to have a lasting and meaningful relationship based off sex alone. As such, I think the emphasis should be on finding someone with whom you have an intellectual and emotional connection BEFORE sharing the physical part.

Make more sense?
