Hooking up with a guy who lives down the hall from your dorm is common, but is it okay? There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages of living in a coed dorm. One of those advantages is that the guy who lives down the hall or a few floors down from you might be really cute and you might hook up with him. But is it really all that great? Here are some of the pros and cons of hooking up with a guy in your dorm hall.
One of the biggest pros is that it’s easy. Of course, actually knowing someone makes it a lot easier to have sex with that person. So, if you are feeling a little horny one night and don’t feel like making an effort, that guy down the hall might be a perfect option.
On the other hand, the con of having sex with the guy down the hall is that it might get a little confusing afterwards. What happens if you feel attached and don’t know why? What if he thinks more should happen, or worse, falls in love with you? These would be nightmare situations, especially if one person doesn’t feel the same way as the other, and especially because you live so close to each other.
A big pro however is that there is no real walk of shame – at least if you don’t count the few steps back to your dorm room. This is great if you want to keep the whole encounter on the down low. Also, you don’t want the whole campus thinking you’re a slut. So, hooking up with the boy down the hall is great if you want to protect your privacy. That is unless he doesn’t tell all his friends.
Another con, however, is that your feelings might get in the way. Yes, those feelings that can make it complicated to hook up with someone and live so close to them, can also be applied to when you are at a party with the guy. What happens if you see him with another girl and start to get really jealous? Jealousy is one of those things that is strong enough to destroy a basic friendship, so you want to be careful before you hook up with him. Maybe your shouldn’t if you know you are an extremely jealous person.
Lastly, in general, you want to weigh your options before you hook up with that guy down the hall. It might seem convenient, fun, and sure, a little naughty, but it can be one of the most convenient sexual exchanges you can ever have – hands down. You want to be careful, however, to not get too close. He is your neighbor after all.
