  1. I strongly agree with Skye’s argument that debating relationships and hook ups is stupid. It is stupid because each situation is completely different. The debate should be on an individual level. The people partaking in the relationship or hook up need to decided what is best for them in that moment. If a relationship is best for them, then they should be in a relationship. However, if hooking up is better for them, then they should not be in a relationship. Deciding if one is better then the other is all dependent upon the people and the timing. Individuals outside of the situation should not care about it because it does not effect them. Additionally, they probably do not understand what the two people in the relationship or hook up want. Overall, if the people in the relationship or hookup are happy, then people should just leave them alone.

  2. I agree with what Skye says in the video. I’ve never really understood why people care and get so upset about what people choose to do in their free time. It’s really no ones business weather you’re hooking up or in a relationship or neither and the fact that people try and make it their business and act like one is right or wrong makes no sense. It’s one thing if a friend is asking for your advice but if no one asked your opinion then just keep it to yourself because this issue doesn’t affect your life at all.

  3. I couldn’t agree more with this video on the debate between relationship vs hookups. I for one have come to realize, one thing doesn’t work for everyone. So while one person may feel they have to be in a relationship, whether for the right or wrong reasons, isn’t necessarily the ideal for another person. It is such a stupid debate because how can anyone assume, or say either one works best for everyone. I also believe that some people just aren’t made out for relationships, and there may be times when a relationship does work and times when hooking up fits someone’s lifestyle a little better. Either way what someone else decides to do is none of my business.

  4. To say that I agree with Skye would be an understatement. While I would have to say that people are entitled to have their own opinions, it is when these same people believe that they have the right to force their worldview on others that it becomes a problem. This push for conformity is something that I have never understood, especially in terms of relationships. Every situation, and every single person is different. Your opinion may be the correct one for you, and it may work the best for your interests, but it does not and cannot be the correct opinion for every single person out there. Some people prefer hookups because they do not want a relationship. Some people prefer being in a relationship. How does it affect you at all if they prefer one over the other? I know plenty of people on both sides of the spectrum that are happy in their situations, and the great thing about it is that if they are unhappy, they have the choice to do something else! It is up to the individual to make their own choices; it is not up to society to make these choices for them.

  5. I loved this video. I fully agree with the Skye’s assessment of the (totally unnecessary) Relationships vs. Hookups debate. Not only is it absolutely no one’s business what anyone chooses to do with their body or free time, but it is invasive to assume an outside opinion regarding said decisions is even remotely relevant or valued, and it only further perpetuates the incestuous society we’ve already cultivated by concerning ourselves with other people’s PERSONAL business. Why anyone feels the need to busy themselves with sexual habits other than their own is beyond me. Some people simply do not prefer commitment, but to shame them for their expressed individuality because it contrasts one’s own idea of the “ideal” social norm is foul. Internalized misogyny, which I feel is the primary source of hookup-culture shaming, is disgusting and low, and should not be encouraged or tolerated.

  6. I completely agree with this argument presented. In today’s society it has become prevalent that people are always so concerned about what other people are doing, and “who’s with who”. However, why does this concern so many people? If the issue doesn’t directly effect you, I don’t think you have any right to know what other people do with their spare time. If everyone just stuck to their own business I think the world would be a much happier place.

  7. I could not agree more. This shouldn’t even be an issue. As long as nobody is getting hurt, let people do what they want with hookups or relationships. If it’s consensual and all parties involved are adults, let it be. People are obsessed with sticking their noses into things it does not belong. Stupid arguments like this can be seen all over. Look at the preachers you see on the sidewalk spouting biblical nonsense all day. Who cares if somebody thinks differently? The world would be a boring place if everybody held the same beliefs.

    Side note: People can do what they want in other countries, too. America is not the only place with freedom.

  8. Before I watched the video, I assumed that the video would be about how hook-ups are ruining our culture and arguments similar to that. But I was surprised to see that the argument was actually about how both relationships and hook-ups shouldn’t be a concern of outside parties, which is something that I do agree with and hope that others may follow the mindset as well.

  9. I really love Skye’s perspective on this topic. I think that people have put way too much thought into relationships vs. hookups and there seems to be this huge stigma around hookup culture as a result of this. The fact that Skye took the approach and just kind of said ‘hey, it doesn’t really matter what people do with their spare time’ was refreshing. This is definitely a topic that people waste their time arguing on when it really doesn’t affect anyone.

  10. I agree with the majority of Skye’s argument. She makes a valid point when she states that what other people do with their spare time is not relevant to us which is true but in my opinion is too broad. We should care what people do in their free time, but we shouldn’t care what people do in their free time when it comes to their sexual life. She is 100 percent right when she says that whether someone is hooking up or in a relationship, it’s not our business. Skye makes a solid argument when she discusses the counter arguments; women rights and the modern family values. Although these may be values that some people hold not everyone does and this proves the point that someone’s sexual life is their own and they can do with it what they please.

  11. I agree with what skye is trying to say in the video. I liked the point she made about how arguing this subject is stupid because eveyone is in different. A relationship may be better for some people but there are also people who may not be ready to be in a relationship, so there is no real answer to this argument. I also liked how she talked about worrying about things that don’t affect you. I think often times people worry too much about what other people do and not enough about how their actions effect their own well being.

  12. I agree with the video and how it addresses that the significance of relationships and hookups is nobody’s business except the individuals who it concerns. It is common knowledge that young people are sexually active and these “hookups” sometimes result in awkward confrontations between the partners. I think that the individuals who are spending this time with each other know what type of relationship they are looking for and should make that clear with their partner without creating future problems. Skye does a phenomenal job stating that people should not fret over the status of others relationship and that this type of activity will happen in our society regardless of the image that’s put off.

  13. I think these points are completely valid, and I am so happy someone finally said it. As long as it isn’t messing with your own relationship… get over it. Also I think this brings up the fact that it really does not matter because from person to person it is totally different. Different people can handle different amounts of commitment and attachment, or lack thereof, so we all just need to let everyone figure it out themselves

  14. I really liked the way Skye answered this very popular social question. So many people today are so overly concerned with how they appear to other people. But really when it comes down to it, what other people think of you doesn’t matter at all. You should do, and be concerned, only with what makes you personally happy. As many people before me have stated, it’s nobodies business, and your sexual life shouldn’t be affected by what others say or do. There really isn’t a right way to do things, the right way to do things is the way that makes you the happiest. Also, no matter what you do there will most likely be people telling you that you are doing it wrong, so be independent and decide for yourself what you think is right.

  15. I feel 50/50 about the arguments made in this video. I do not see anything wrong in the concept of hooking up with consent from both parties. Although, hookups without consent either can sabotage existing relationships or be a case of sexual assault. I think that if people leaned more towards relationships then the concept of loyalty would be stronger in today’s society. I do agree that it is none of my business if so and so is hooking up with so and so and frankly I don’t care.

  16. In my opinion I do not think this topic should even be argued, because it shouldn’t matter what others do unless it affect you personally. Many people could be bias towards this argument due to either religious affiliations or personal opinions.

  17. Stupid is right! This is the last way to bring a modern change especially for women. I agree that it is no one’s business what others are doing in their personal relations whether it is a hookup or a serious romantic relationship. As long as people are safe and are doing what they feel is best, more power to them.

  18. I really liked the video and her point of view on the topic. Her argument on the topic was honestly enlightening and something I’ve never heard before. I think that the side you fall on depends on your value of sex as well. Some people see it as an act of bonding and compassion and others just don’t. Not that there’s anything wrong with either view but I think it’s important to note this because this is the reason why it is so controversial in our culture today.

  19. I completely agree with her argument in this video. I’m not saying that I agree with hookup culture or anything like that, but I do feel like people get so wrapped up in everyone else’s business that they don’t handle their own. If everyone were as concerned about real issues in our society as they are who someone else is “hooking up” with then the world we live in would be a much better place! I think Skye is right to say what you do is your own business. To add to that, people need to spend their energy on things that can make a difference, rather than gossip and other such garbage.

  20. I completely agree. What people choose to do with their time and their bodies is their business. I read on one of the Potty Mouth articles was that this hook-up culture has not really changed. This is not a new thing. People have been having casual sex for decades and nothing is different now. People just want to make a big deal out of it because of the recent changes women want to be making in our society. Just because an issue is just now coming to light does not mean it is a new issue.

  21. I totally agree with Skye’s point. i have always felt that as long as it doesn’t affect you you should leave it be with these types of things. everyone should be free to make their own choices and without fear of someone telling them that what they are doing is wrong of immoral. I feel that so long as all participants are safe everyone should be able to do what makes them happy.

  22. Once again I agree with Skye that it’s every person’s right to choose how they live their life, so long as it isn’t harmful to others. Despite the opinions of steadfast conservatives, people who choose to have casual sex are not likely to cause the downfall of society and their actions are not dangerous. It seems ridiculous to me to condemn someone for enjoying having sex even when they are not in a committed relationship. However, I’m happy to say that I’ve noticed a lot less of that mentality in my generation than the ones before us.

  23. I totally agree with her points in the video. Honestly, as the two individuals give consent and are being safe, who really cares. You can’t tell me that what we now call “hookups” haven’t been happening since the beginning of time. If someone wants to be in committed relationship, that is totally fine. If someone wants to explore their sexual sides with multiple people, I also think that is fine. I don’t think it should be as big of an issue as people these days are making it.

  24. This video portrayed both of the scenarios in a positive and negative manner, which allowed it to be viewed objective and unbiased. I personally value relationships more than hookups because the only you get out of a hookup is sex, which is not the most important factor between two individuals. However, I agree with Skye that it is not our business to judge others on there personal choices. If they want to have a relationship that is fine and if they want to hookup that is their choice. Trying to shape everyone to follow one way or the other will just cause havoc in the end.

  25. In all actuality, I agree completely with the video. I feel as if this is a controversial topic, which causes judgment to be a huge downfall in society. It is idiotic to judge others for their actions because primarily it is none of our business. I see so many different ads to take surveys on whether dating or hooking up is better, and to me I think, “why does it matter?”. What people plan to do is their business, and until it affects me personally I believe that it really is none of my business. Also, why don’t we start worrying about more important issues instead of pointless things.

  26. She makes a good point in this video. People spend way too much time worrying about things that other people are doing that really do not concern them. This is such a widely talked about topic recently. There is no point to even debate it for a couple of reasons. The first being that no matter what some article online says about hookup culture, people are going to do whatever they want to do and there is nothing we can do to change that. Secondly it really is not anyones business what strangers do in their spare time.

  27. Skye gave the same reason three times: it does not concern you because it is non of your business. While I can definitely say to a certain degree there is some truth in that statement, she overgeneralizes a lot. If it does not concern me, why should I care about rape or women rights? It is not affecting me at all. Here is the short answer: I should care because it is wrong.

  28. I really liked this video. I feel as if this topic of discussion is extremely relevant in our society today. I think it is important for everyone to understand that what other people do with their personal lives does not affect them. I think it is very important to establish relationships, however if people want to just hookup then they shouldn’t be judged for what they do in their personal lives.

  29. She’s right this topic is completely ridiculous and shouldn’t even be of anyone’s concern. I wonder what would happen if this topic ever made real ground in the world, what people who favored either side would even do.

  30. I could not agree more with Skye’s argument. What someone else does in their spare time should never be anyones concern but their own. No one has the right to judge what someone else is doing physically or how they choose to create relationships, as long as they take the right precautions. However, It starts concerning people once that person is not taking proper precautions. The more you “hookup” the higher chance there is to spread STDs. If one person is being unsafe they are putting everyone else around them at risk because of their actions. Also, personally I am concerned with the hookup culture. Personally, I am not a hookup type of person. Therefore, it hard for me to create serious relationships when that isn’t what people are looking for.

  31. I agree with Skye on this one, because the difference between the benefits or pitfalls of a relationship or a hookup vary greatly from person to person. For one person a relationship might be great and it is not on the shoulders of those who disagree to chastise them for that belief. Whatever is best for the individual is their decision and is not the concern of people who are not a part of the hookup or relationship between the two individuals. Its not only in this debate where people are sticking their nose where is doesn’t belong, but in issues all over our world which only makes them more convoluted and dumb.

  32. I would have to agree with Skye in the video because what people do in their spare time should not concern you. They have the freedom to do what they want and when they want, despite what you think about them. As a society, I think we are too judgmental of others and as a result, it could lead to stereotypes and low self esteem. If you are the type of person that likes to be in a relationship or hook up , then that’s your decision. Like the video mentioned, if both parties gives consent, then it isn’t a problem for me. I would suggest that you stay safe and use protection, so you won’t put others at risk but other than that, these things shouldn’t concern us.

  33. The conversation of hookup vs. relationship on the college campus has begun to be a hot topic in the recent years and as Skye said in the video. Why does it matter? People should be allowed to do what they want and not feel like they are being judged for their actions that they chose to do. As a freshman I personally do not want a relationship so early in my college career but if two people like each other and want one then there should be no reason for them to feel worried of what other people will think.

  34. I completely agree with her argument. For, who’s to say that anyone is wrong. I am not an extremely religious person, but I strongly believe in the quote, “May those without sin cast the first stone”. I love that quote because not one person in this world is perfect, therefore why do people judge others. Just let people do them. Nobody likes to be judged based on their actions so why would one judge another. Overall I really connected with this video because it is so true.

  35. Relationships vs. Hookups has really hit my generation and what our norms about finding significant others are. I have seen it first hand that there is so much back and forth of positive and negative connotation with hooking up, and i have agreed with Lily from the start, “Why do other people care?”. What i can relay which is an absolute positive is that in High school this topic took dominance because everyone did care what everyone else was doing, and found it hard to care about themselves. Though i have only been in college for a short time, no one really cares here what you are doing at all. It shows how the more mature you get the more and more you start to focus on yourself and not care what anyone else is doing or thinking.

  36. I completely agree with Skye’s argument. What people do in their spare time is 100% completely personal. It is no one else business what you do when no one else is around. Why are people so curious? Wouldn’t it be easier to just worry about yourself and what you’re doing rather than worrying about someone else’s activities that have absolutely nothing to do with you are are not effecting you at all? I will never understand why people feel it is their place to judge others on what they do. Is America really free? I feel that we all are expected to live a certain perfect way, and if you do something outside of it then people look at you like you’re a criminal or such a bad person just for breaking the norms and doing what they want to do.

  37. I found this video very amusing. While watching I did not know what to think about this persons argument until the very end. The purpose of this video is not to choose sides but to not care. I loved how she clearly bluntly stated that it does not concern us what other people do in their spare time or with their relationships. From what I learned in this video, its people lives and they should live it the way they want. Its does not require our input and we should mind our own business

  38. This is an interesting topic since I’m in college and experienced first hand this culture. Just like Skye said this doesn’t really concern anyone. Hooking up is a relationship. Just a different relationship where the main objective is to have sex. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that but I personally would never do that. We all have different relationships with friends and family we shouldn’t treat the hook up relationship any different than those types of relationships.

  39. Skye is preaching the cold hard truth in this video, people these days should have way better things to do then to argue and worry about the relationship of two other people. In my opinion, if two people are happy and comfortable with what they are doing, then let those two people do their thing. You only live once, so enjoy the relationships, hookups, or whatever you have with somebody else while you can.

  40. Even though I favor one side over the other, that is MY decision to make as it should be other people’s decisions to decide one or the other. I agree completely that someone else’s life, whether they are in a relationship or sleeping around is none of my business and I really just don’t care! Anyone has the right to choose and their decision will have no affect on me.

  41. I completely agree with Skye on this topic. The individuals in our society are always worried about everybody’s business. JUST MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! It isn’t that hard to just keep to yourself and follow the path that your life takes you. There is absolutely no need to get involved with anything that has nothing to do with you.

  42. I liked the video. What makes the video enlightening is that Skye’s point of view is honestly very simply. Just leave people alone. I really don’t care if you want to either be committed to one person or if you want to have multiple people to sleep with. Why should I force my thinking and my values onto people? I wouldn’t appreciate that so why should I do that to someone who isn’t even bothering me. It all comes down to just simply being kinder to one another.

  43. Skye is absolutely correct; It really doesn’t matter what people do with each other if it doesn’t involve you. Not just on this topic, but with all kinds of things, people get so worked up over it when it has nothing to do with them.

  44. Although I feel her arguments about relationships versus hookups were a bit repetitive, I agree with them. It shouldn’t concern you whether or not a person hooks up with a bunch of people or is in a committed relationship. I applaud both of those types of people for just doing themselves the way they want. It doesn’t make a certain type any less of a person or greater than, it’s their choice and you should respect that. People worry too much about the little things.

  45. I totally agree with Skye. I believe that if two individuals are mutually okay with being together without labels that others should let them be. This is hard for two people who just enjoy being together, whether it be platonically or sexually, to pursue a relationship because of society’s standards. People try to dictate how an “ideal” relationship should progress when in reality, if someone appears happy, why not just let them be happy regardless of their relationship status.

  46. I agree with Skye! In high school, I think that this was a huge issue, because everyone really cared about what other people were doing with each other. In college, I find that people still care and like to talk about it, but definitely not to the extent that they did in high school. I just do not understand why people think that they have the right to judge and criticize what other people are doing with their lives, when it does not affect them in the slightest. Over break, my sister was talking about how annoying this girl was because she was still just engaging in hookups. It just does not make sense to me that she is still talking about someone she hasn’t seen for almost seven years. That girl’s life does not affect her in any way, so I don’t get why she wastes her time thinking about it.

  47. I think at the videos core, it was good. People tend to obsess over other peoples decisions with hookups/relationships. Slut shaming has become a lot more “popular” because it is easy (not saying it is right) to judge and compare other peoples sexual choices. Though she repeated that it is none of other people’s business, I really think that is the main idea of this. Unless someone else’s sexual encounters and practices directly affect you in a negative way, there should be no reason to shame someone for their personal decisions.

  48. I couldn’t agree more. There are pro’s and con’s to both committed relationships and casual hookups. But in the end it all boils down to what someone wants. Some people like having someone they can consistently count on to be there. Other people may feel that hookups allow them to remain independent and not be tied down by anyone. To me, arguing over one or the other is ridiculous. As Skye said, why do you care what other people do in there free time. Two people getting married or having causal sex does absolutely no harm to you or anyone else. Therefore, it’s none of your business what is best for them.

  49. I completely agree that it isn’t anyone’s business what people do on their personal time. Women should be free to do what they please and not have to just be focused on relationships. When people have consensual sex it should be between them and no one else’s business.

  50. Something I’ve come to realize on this topic is that everyone is different and what everyone wants is different to, so whether or not a person wants a relationship or just a hook up, really comes down to the person. Everyone is different and that’s okay.

  51. I think that more people need to understand the message of this video. It’s funny to me that people still bother themselves with the relationships of others when it absolutely does not affect them. Whether two people are committed to each other or simply having casual hookups, the only thing that should matter is if they are happy with what they are doing. Everyone is free to choose what kind of relationship they want and it’s stupid for someone else to feel the need to judge them for their choices when, as Skye put it, it doesn’t concern them.

  52. I agree with her in that this was a stupid video to make, as well as watch. The idea of hookups versus relationships do not affect anyone as she states so what is the point in wasting time on it. Everyone is different and prefers different things so we should just let people do what they want. People today are so focused on other people and making sure that they are doing right things when in reality, people should be minding their own business. This video was kind of pointless to watch because the only thing she really explains is that it doesn’t affect anyone so what is the point in caring. If she had stressed that it is not your place to get involved than that would have made a better video.

  53. I love how obviously freedom of privacy Skye is and I completely agree with her point of view. People in our society spend so much time debating topics that don’t effect them in any shape or form (i.e. Same Sex Marriage, Abortion, etc) and it’s ridiculous. The energy we put into trying to change other people’s opinions on these things could be put into efforts to make our society better. Instead of arguing with someone on the internet about how our generation’s “hook up culture” is so terrible, you could be out like… I don’t know, planting a tree or something else positive. Conversations like these are just a waste of time and energy.

  54. Relationships and hookups are a mutual bond between two people, no one else is involved. I realize that many people value the title of a relationship more than what it stands for. Each person was brought into this world without someone who is vital to their life afterwards. Moving on is tough, but no one should rely so heavily on another because the purpose of a relationship is to progress together.

  55. So many people nowadays want to know what is happening when two individuals are just hooking up or are in a committed relationship. We are so used to everything being out in the open. In this video Skye hits the nail on the head by saying that it is no ones business on what two consenting adults are doing, even though everyone wants to make it their business. Instead of being in everyone else’s business we should be concerned about ourselves and not what are friend is doing in the room next door. Casual sex and committed relationships are just apart of life and if you want to tell people about what you are doing that is fine, but if you don’t that is fine too. No one should judge you based on what you are doing with another consenting individual.

  56. With this mentality people could get away with anything! I agree that sometimes things aren’t worth arguing over, but saying that one shouldn’t care if it doesn’t involve them is not a good argument. What is someone is murdered and we are told to not care because we were involved in the murder?

  57. Whether or not two people are involved in a serious, committed relationship or just hooking up for the time being doesn’t matter. This is because it only involves the two people who the specific relationship involves and no one else, there is no room for outsiders here. People become too wrapped up in the idea that they need to push their own views on others constantly when in fact they don’t because a relationship may work out better for two people if it is just a simple hookup or if it serious relationship, it depends on the people involved. The video did a nice job explaining the simplicity of this complex.

  58. I agree that it doesn’t matter what kind of relationships other people have because it isn’t your relationship. I think that people should be allowed to have any kind of relationships they want because different people need different things. Some people just need quick hookups and others need long lasting relationships. Some people are scared of commitment and others thrive in it, but it all depends on the individuals in that relationship. People should focus on their own relationships rather than interfering in others.

  59. I am very passionate about this topic and like the argument laid out in this video because it brings out the great point that just like any current controversial topic, we should focus on ourselves and how we feel about certain things and not pay attention to others. It is as simple as that, what others say or do really doesnt have to affect us; however many times we let it affect us regardless which is sad yet it is common human nature to be influenced. This video is great and does conceal the message to not let what those say change what we do yet there is so many young people who do something like a random hook up because they feel okay with it but afterwards society makes them feel guilty and I hate the fact that this is still an issue.

  60. Relationships versus hook–ups is a big topic especially in college. And a lot of people are consumed in what others are choosing to do if it’s either trying something long or short term. A great point brought up in the video is to not worry about what others are choosing to do because as long as they are happy with their decisions then that should be the only thing that matters.

  61. I agree completely with Skye on this topic. It is absolutely no one’s business what everyone else is doing in their spare time. She is spot on when she references the fact that this has been going on for a while. The concept that we are in a “hookup culture” does not seem accurate to me because the fact still remains the same that individuals have been both hooking up and also in relationships for many years. Like many of the issues in the world today, this one could be completely avoided if people were to only be concerned about themselves and not the lives of other people.

  62. I thought this video would have more factual information in it regarding things like statistics on STDs, which lifestyle leads to greater happiness, etc. Though I agree with what she did say, I think that it wasn’t executed as well as it could have been.

  63. I agree with her that the debate between relationships and hookups is completely ridiculous. Relationships are not the only answer to being happy and hookups are not scandalous and are not anyone’s business but your own. No one should care what anybody is doing, especially if it has no connection to you.

  64. I agree with what Skye had to say but I had a hard time following the video. She acted very uneducated and repeated the same phrase over and over. While it got her point across she could have used more information to back it up. While I agree that peoples hook ups and relationships do not concern me and I shouldn’t care what people do in their spare time it’s not my business. But, at the same time the world views hookups negatively and relationships positively in general. That is not always the case. Some relationships are horrible and need to be ended. Some hookups aren’t bad and may even lead to a relationship. Overall I agree with Skye what people do doesn’t concern me and I shouldn’t care.

  65. I love this topic because it is a subject that gets a lot of controversy and not a lot of people can agree on one thing. Or people agree with what others say because it is more socially acceptable. As what Kathryn and Lily stated before me, I believe that what people want to do with their time is their business and only their business. I will never understand why what others do in their own time affects the lives of others and why they are curious about it. Our society now gets so nosey because of how we have been growing up to be and social media/technology is a major factor in that. Everyone posting their relationships and activities on social media is a reason why others get so glued to other people’s business. Relationships shouldn’t be part of a social community where others are concerned about your personal or sexual life.

  66. Again, you have a very good point in this video, but it is presented in a very unconvincing fashion. I’m starting to see the parallels between the arguments on various topics. The common argument is that people should not care what others are doing with their free time. At the same time, the whole premise of this blog site is to get people to change what they do with their free time, not to be indifferent with what people in theirs. As an intellectual, I can’t say that I was able to take away any major persuasive arguments. Like I said, I agree with the point made, but do not agree with how it was presented.

  67. I do agree with the bit that she does mention about the subject, but she executes her ideas very poorly. If you watch closely, she mentions “it is not your business” about 7 times and basically doesn’t talk about anything else. She describes these 3 main points as: 1. Don’t care how others spend their time, it’s not your business , 2. It doesn’t concern you, it’s not your business, 3. It doesn’t concern you (which can also be said as “it’s not your business”). Another reason why I didn’t really want to watch the video from the start was because she outright said that she didn’t want to make this video and used the word stupid excessively. I don’t know about anyone else watching out there, but I was pretty turned off to her thoughts and ideas after her saying that. Aside from all of this, I do agree with the ONE idea that she states and continues to repeat for 2 minutes, but it does seem thin and could’ve been explained better.

    1. I agree that relationships and hookups shouldn’t be judged or should be solely one way or the other. I don’t think there is a right or wrong choice depending on what you want. However, I do believe that you shouldn’t let hooking up get to your head because having someone stable and constant is important it life to make you truly happy and satisfied.
