Spill the Details
Even if you share your location, your friends won't necessarily be monitoring your every move. So if you have the opportunity, keep them posted on what's happening. A simple text giving them a heads up of where you are or where you're heading with the person you're hooking up with is always smart. Also, let them know your hookup's info! First names, last names, and even an Instagram account is helpful — that way, your friends know exactly who you're hanging out with. If you don't know your partner's name or the part of town/campus you're at, re-evaluate the situation. You should never feel weird about pausing a hookup to ask for more details and make sure you feel 100 percent comfortable with the situation. And just as you checked in on your way over, shoot your friends a message letting them know when you leave or if you won't be coming home for the night.
