For some weird reason, people are very active when it comes to dating but struggle to find a way to proactively start seeking relationships that are for sex only. In some western cultures, despite the sexual revolution, we still somewhat look down on a person who finds him or herself in a hookup and do not support open relationships that much.

It is a strange development since modern culture is created for quick dates that rapidly develop into something intimate. The initial anonymity and ability to quickly exchange most important bits of information with a potential partner make it much easier for people to search for a one-night stand.

Nevertheless, some people are not that comfortable or experienced to start on their own. For such people, we have a couple of tips! Make sure to use free hookup sites that are actually free (for example, FuckBook).


Tips and Tricks

The vast majority of guides and helpful articles from pickup artists do have a lot of very good advice but one of the worst things about less experienced people is that they do not follow the advice. The number one rule is to follow tips however silly or weird they may sound. If they do not work out as you would like them to, you just ditch the idea and try something else. Do not discard an opportunity to start a conversation or impress a person just because you don’t believe that it might work.

Here are our tips:

  • Be proactive on hookup sites. While various studies indicate that the vast majority of women receive a lot of messages and attention, it does not mean that you should never try. Message as many users as possible. You will get eventual responses and mutual likes that can be converted in a real date.
  • Be confident. Even if you do not think that you are a 10 out of 10 guy or gal, do not be discouraged. Visual attractiveness is a very subjective thing. At the same time, if you stop at a certain moment, you may miss that one special person that actually likes you!
  • Have a good photo. It is really important to make a good first impression. What you need to do is to hire a photographer or use a very good camera and make a photo that would look good. The quality of the image also affects how your profile looks.
  • Pursue your matches. Some people are afraid to continue talking to their matches despite receiving a positive initial response. Stay proactive and “poke” people from time to time to keep the interest high.

Stay Sharp

Another thing is that hookup can be a bad experience if you are not careful. Some people are there to either scam you or have all the joy for themselves. Have a couple of extensive conversations with your match on hookup sites before committing to a real date. It is quite important to know a person that you are going to meet.

Since senior citizens have been found to be more vulnerable to online scams,  Safe Detectives has produced an internet safety guide for seniors. Do not invite a person to your place for the first time. It is much wiser and safer to just rent a motel room. Make sure that your first date is happening is a crowded place where you will be safe.

Prepare for potential problems. Warn your friends about your upcoming date and set up a date in a place that you know very well.
