Can anyone give me some context on how the hookup culture is like in Singapore?
I come from a traditional family and was not exposed to this culture growing up as the friends I make are generally of traditional and religious upbringing, similar to me. After entering university, I realised many of my university friends/acquaintances are in fact engaging with hookups rather often.
I’m a little embarrassed to ask them myself but is it normal for people to be hooking up with someone new every 3-5 days? Recently I have come to know a nice guy who has taken an interest in me too.
However, he disclosed that he had been hooking up with many girls for about 9 months, prior to meeting with me. I’m honestly not sure how to feel about that and did not pry too much into the details as I’m afraid of what I might hear.
While I do have an interest in entering a relationship with him in the future, the idea of him sleeping around with multiple girls in the past seems rather disturbing, and some of the girls happened to be in the same course as me too.
My friends, however, told me that it’s almost impossible to find someone who has never hooked up before at our age range, and I should learn to be more open towards this. Do people and guys in particular, really not get emotionally attached after engaging in such an intimate act with others?
Can the mind really detach itself from the body when one is hooking up? I find it hard to understand but if anyone can share some advice…
