Dating for hookups is far easier than dating looking for relationships.
Hookup dating is mostly all about physical attraction and vibes.
Smoking, drinking, political views, religious views and education does not usually matter that much. Other things that usually do not matter is whether anyone wants a family or is really ready to settle down.
When dating for hookups you should still prepare! Remember that you could find a yuck or an ick or others may find an ick in you, so nothing is guaranteed.
