If you've seen Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio's movie Who's Eating Gilbert Grape, perhaps you know Gilbert is having an affair with Betty, a married woman who is much older than him. Theoretically, that's an extramarital affair. But realistically, that's a typical local hookup – they live in a small town with a small population: Betty is lonely in an unsatisfying marriage, and Gilbert is a horny y0ung man who needs to get laid. At that time, people didn't have the Internet or social media at home, so everyone knew everyone in a small town. That's why it was easy for people to find local hookups
in the early 90s.
However, things have changed a lot now. These days people stay at home to surf the Internet or stare at their smart phones for the dopamine brought by social media. Consequently, in this day and age, we have fewer opportunities to find local hookups in real life than those who were sexually active in the 90s. Yet fortunately, nowadays we have many hookup apps for us to choose and join, thereby finding local hookups fast. Nice and easy.
Because most hookup apps use GPS to identify a member's location or IP address, these apps can send you the right local candidates near you to your smart phone directly. This is indeed an effortless way to find local hookups (✿´‿`) ☺
