11% liked hook-up culture? Hmmmmm, that must be the one hot guy in the survey who was getting all the sex.
My thoughts exactly! I agree the sample size is awfully small. To be honest, I’m surprised they would design such a small study.

Therefore I would say that 75% of women are significantly involved in hookup culture.
That’s a fair assessment. I don’t think there’s any other kind of culture to choose from. So you get a third of the students opting out completely. A bunch of the remaining students are hooking up reluctantly or regretfully. So yes, they are involved in hookup culture, even if it isn’t working too well for them.
You’d think with this many young people being dissatisfied, they’d figure out a way to stop and do something else.

Apex Fallacy anyone?
Indeed. As someone who only figured this out myself about two years ago, I’m not surprised. This is perhaps the biggest challenge to young men today. Just getting this across to women.

SInce it sounds like young people want an alternative to the hookup scene, what do you think is inhibiting dating? Is it just laziness? Fear of rejection?
