Rob Schisgall English 103 11/24/07 Hookup Culture Draft 2 In order to properly evaluate the significance of our generations “hook-up” culture, one must first understand the difference between a causal hook-up and a relationship. Although the differences between hooking up and being in a relationship seem to be black and white, a large grey area creates much of the confusion that so often seems to plague any type of “relationship”. Therefore properly defining a hook-up becomes a major issue as many people find it hard to associate the term with a very short period of courtship. On the other hand, traditional relationships are most commonly viewed as a long term engagement in which couples get to know each other through a series of dates. Nevertheless, discerning the origin of the hook-up culture and the evolution of traditional dating may help to completely delineate their differences. Consider the phrase "hooking up," a casual reference to casual encounters that is part of the American collegiate vocabulary. Nevertheless, finding college students on actual dates these days is a rarity. Primarily stemming from our societies no-strings attached attitude, most college students live within what we call a hookup culture.
