Hooking Up With No Regrets


Hooking up takes skills, and not in the way you’re thinking. Joanne Davila, PhD, and relationship expert Kaycee Lashman have identified some skills women (and men) should have in their repertoire in order to hookup without regrets or emotional ramifications.  They begin with the premise that healthy relationships, whether long-term or short-term, begin with knowing yourself: insight into your goals, your needs and your limits.   Since it’s not all about you, mutuality is equally important.  Finally, emotional regulation will help you respond to experiences healthily and make decisions successfully.
