Dating vocabulary update

I just read a NYT piece about "hooking up" in high school. This shines light on my more recent dating experiences. No wonder I've had problems whenever I mentioned "dating" or "girlfriend". I was using the wrong vocabulary! "Hooking up" is now the preferred vocabulary. Damn, wish I known that years ago. Didn't have a useful term for it.

This also makes me go, "No wonder I was having a hard time. Dating is far MORE shallow that I thought it was." Well, looks like I can't put this to use in the near future. Well, I'll put this into my notes for when I'm a dirty old man.

As for the article, I would say that I'm amazed at the sex in high school, but who am I kidding? Same activity, different technology.
