If one person in the hookup thinks of the situation as more couple-like than the other, this can lead to serious hurt on that person’s end. Does this mean we think our hookups, no matter how casual, should be exclusive?To Coleman, this is just another indicator that regardless of whether it’s official, you and your hookup may be a couple.“The minute you hit long-term, you’ve become a couple,” he says.
Born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Richie grew up on the campus of Tuskegee Institute.Coleman says that the duration of a consistent hookup matters.“Once is an occurrence, twice is a repeat, three times is a pattern,” he says.“It's still a ‘no strings attached’ thing, but we wouldn't still be hanging out if I was only seen as a booty call.” Some nights, she says, they hang out but don’t ‘hookup’.“It can definitely be harder on your feelings, but I feel like there's a little bit more caring [in a long-term hookup] than a one night stand offers.” Another junior girl in our survey said her 3-month-long hookup was casual for the first couple months, but then became more serious.“Usually a long term hook-up results in a relationship,” she says.“Which I think is better than a one-night stand.” One junior boy even noticed his feelings for his current hookup of one month.Ultimately, since these long-term hookups aren’t usually declared as exclusive, “jealousy always interferes when the other person finds someone else,” Coleman says. Pittsburgh University senior, Jordan, says, “If both people are clear that you are just hooking up then there is no reason to be upset if they hook up with someone else.“If you’re jealous that he’s talking to another girl, or has pictures with another girl, you are, or want to be a couple.” One junior guy at Syracuse University said that his hookup of one month was exclusive with no strings attached. However, if you have stated that it’s just hooking up, but you are doing so exclusively, then be as upset as you want!In 1968 he became a singer and saxophonist with the Commodores.They signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1968 for one record before moving on to Motown Records initially as a support act to The Jackson 5.
