Trying to explain to a friend tonight how I cant' handle random hookups and how they make me feel generally uncomfortable, he didn't get it in the least. Is that really the common feeling towards the issue of relationships? I much prefer the emotional bond to the physical, and am more than willing to preclude or delay one for the gratification of the other. This concept was completely foreign to him. "How would you even meet women if you don't hook up with them first?" came out. Is it really such an awful approach?
