Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?

By The Way...
WikiPedia -- HOOK-UP -- People
# Slang term for courtship, especially of short duration
# 'Meet up.'
# Casual sex



Really, now, men, be honest.

What does "hook-up" mean to you when you see it in a post here? (not when you say it, but when you see it here at RCS)

Please help me understand this new word/idea from our culture.

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
What it means, is what you want it to mean....I use it as a slang of "let's get together for..." at work I say..."Let's hook up and get the display built as soon as possible"...meaning....let's all get the job done A.S.A.P. I tell a church member..."let's hookup for a bite to eat...meaning....hey, I'm hungry, want to go get something to eat?

I have heard it used as a sexual pick-up line and as an innocent use of english slang...again, it's what you want it to be...nothing more, nothing less...your bro in Christ...peace Cool

Thanks for your reply, NMW, but here's the question again...

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
When I was single, I thought "hooking up" meant that you met someone that you really hit it off with and had an understanding with them. You were dating, "going with" them. I thought of it as one step below that whole girlfriend/boyfriend level.

So...there ya go. An answer from a man.

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
Well, I know that this topic is supposed to be for men but I've seen it on people's profiles and wondered what it meant too. So, I voted to see what the percentage ended up being. As a girl, I guess I always assumed that "hook up" meant that you were looking for sex, if not immediately then at least soon.

Just a female perspective. I think this is an interesting topic and look forward to reading more input from guys...

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
basically, i think the use of 'hook up' depends on the person one is talking to/with, but most of the times, i see it used to mean 'lets get together for a drink, chin wag, or just for the sake of spending time together'. i agree, many people use ot to indicate having sex at a leter stage, but this is not always the norm....

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
If I were to use it, I would mean "to get together."

However, in the secular world it does have more of a sexual connotation. For that reason I don't know that I have ever used it as a stand alone phrase. "Hey, lets hook up."

I think even seeing it here on RCS I would question the persons intent.

Besides, and ladies you can confirm this, would you rather be invited to "hook up" or "to have a romantic dinner." I would think it wouldn't be complimentary to be related to a fish. Noticed, yes. Caught, not so much.

Ladies...?

I'd definitely go for the "romantic dinner" invitation, rather than "hooking up". Mr. Green

Re: Men, what does "Hook-Up" mean to you?
As a woman, I go with the majority on this. I met a few men on another supposedly "Christian" site and ultimately found that those who said they wanted to "hook up" meant that they wanted to basically man-handle me and see how far they could go before I would put a stop to it. Trust me, those men in particular lost my respect awfully quick. So yeah, because that is a phrase that is basically used in the secular world as a gesture to have a casual fling with someone, I wouldn't use it here on RCS. In fact, I would be very leery of anyone who does.

Blessings,
Cindy
