iHookup is an online dating site that caters to flexible, fun and adventurous people chasing the thrill of physical attraction. This site is the brainchild of a handful of forward-thinking women who realized that women like hooking up as much as men do... and there are plenty of other women out there who aren't ashamed to admit it! We say if it feels good, do it!
We've got nothing against relationships. We tried it, had some laughs, shed some tears, and now we're ready to move on and sow our online oats. iHookup is all about rubbing your single life in the face of traditional dating sites. So what if you just got out of a relationship and are looking to engage in some no-strings-attached study sessions or you're just passing some time before you meet someone to tie your wagon to. We're not your mom and we'll never ask you when you're going to find a nice boy or girl to settle down with. We're also not that annoying relative at your cousin William's wedding (yeah, we give that marriage 2 years, tops) that asks you if you're going to be next one down the aisle.
We started iHookup because we felt that traditional dating sites were ignoring the fact that physical attraction is the most important element of dating. You want to hear their voice, watch their body language and see what they look like in real life before you decide to play the whole dating game with them. You know the one - you spend countless hours sending messages back and forth, maybe you're lucky enough to move to the phone, and in a couple of weeks, you might nail down a coffee date...only to find out there's no physical attraction. Back to the drawing board...
On iHookup, you cut out the middle man (the middle man being the pointless and painful dating game). Right away, you can see if you and your hookup de jour share that intoxicating chemistry. No more wasted time equals more energy spent on people you actually have fun with... and trust us when we say that you're going to need all the energy you can get.
No need to thank us - that's just how we roll.
Hookup: So many definitions, so little time. It can mean an alliance, an arrangement of mechanical parts or when someone can get you a deal on those sweet speakers you've had your eye on. Those definitions are pretty boring. Others see a hookup as when two people meet to hang out, make out or do the dirty (or any variation of the three). Yep, that's the one we're going with. It can mean a casual relationship that takes place over time or it can be a one night stand. Hookups can start casual and turn into something more serious, or they are agreed upon as a "friends with benefits" arrangement. No matter which one you go with, the hookup is a casual creature that works best when the two people involved keep it easy and breezy.
Physical Attraction: A spark between two people that puts butterflies in your stomach and an ache in your loins. You can't explain it and you don't have to. It's all about attraction and the intense rush that comes when you physically connect with another person. You just want to rip off your clothes (and the clothes of the person you're with) and just get down to business. Physical attraction burns hot and fast. It doesn't last forever and that's perfect - you don't need it to.
"Un"-relationship: The committed relationship's evil twin brother. When you're in the un-relationship zone, you don't want to be committed to another person. The only thing you want to be committed to is having a kick-ass great time. Fun, adventurous and flexible - that describes a person who's ready to try out an un-relationship.
Two Night Stand: When you want to go back for more after the first hookup, but have no intention of meeting up again after the second time. Because everyone knows, after you hookup three times, you're on your way to a relationship. This type of hookup means you like what you tasted the first time around, but after taking that second bite, you realize you're tired of eating that particular dish and want to move on to the next entree.
Friends with Benefits: Screw BFFs - it's time to make some FWBs. You like this person enough to hang out with them, but there's no kind of commitment in the cards. There's no hand holding or PDAs when you hang out - you like each other's company, you get along and when the mood strikes you, you move it on into the bedroom. You don't get your FWB a Valentine's Day card, you buy them a beer and get it on.
Activity Partner: You need a +1 - you've got an extra concert ticket, need a tennis partner or someone on your arm for your cousin's wedding. What you need is an activity partner - someone to hang out with platonically who also happens to share your interests. You find yourself needing an activity partner when your friends start getting married and aren't available to drop what their doing to go to a kick-ass concert you just won tickets for.
We have nothing against relationships. We think they are great. But we understand that people go through different phases in their lives and a relationship might not be at the top of their "to do" list at the moment. You may have other important things on the go that make it impossible to fit a relationship into your life at the moment, or maybe you still have a bad taste in your mouth because of the way your last one ended. Whatever your reasons are, we get it - we're cool like that.
When you talk about physical attraction, it's all about the body. We here at iHookup dig getting naked, but we also know that people don't want to see a stranger's private parts when they log onto our site. That's why you can post all the naked pictures you want in your private photo album. This way, you don't have to share your naked form with the rest of the dating community and you can save a little mystery for when you really want to grab that certain someone's attention.
