Where am I?

Hookup.Auction is a new type of dating site. Instead of browsing profiles, you browse (or create) Hookups.

What is a Hookup?

A Hookup is a an ad for a date. Each Hookup has a gift attached - either a request for a gift (“Take me for tea at the Ritz”) or the offer of a gift (“I have a spare ticket to see Ed Sheeran”). The limit is your imagination.

Who can create a Hookup?

Anyone site user can create a Hookup.

What is a gift?

Anything you like. Be creative… Want to eat at that cool new restaurant? Ask for someone to take you there. Got a spare concert ticket? Find someone to take with you. Want to check out that new exhibition? See who else likes the same artist and offer to take them along.

Can I offer/request cash?

You can if you like, but this isn’t an escorting site. Hookups that try to openly trade gifts for sexual favours will be removed. Try being more creative - what’s your dream date?

Do I have to create a Hookup?

No you don’t - you can just browse and bid on other people’s Hookups if you like. If you don’t create a Hookup, you’ll be invisible to other site users until you place a bid.

Can I create multiple Hookups?

Go for it! Create as many as you like, and (for now anyway), it’s free.

My Hookup isn’t showing up on the site

It should appear as soon as you publish it. Check that you’ve put it in the right region, and (most important) that you clicked “Publish”.

How do I remove my Hookup from the site?

Just go to My Hookups and either click “Hide” or “Delete”.

How do I contact someone?

There are two ways to make contact:

  1. Create a Hookup and wait for bids. When you “Like” a bid, that person is added to your contact list.
  2. Bid on someone else’s Hookup. If they click “Like” on your bid, you can then message them.

Once you’re a contact, you can freely exchange emails and see each other’s photos.

Are my photos public?

No - your photos are private until you add them to a hookup, or add someone as a contact. Contacts can view all your photos.

I added a photo but it doesn’t appear on my Hookup

Your photo must be approved before it appears. If you attached it to a Hookup, it will appear automatically when it is approved.

What is an “adult” photo?

Adult photos are those showing nudity or anything sexual. Adult photos can only be viewed by logged in users. You cannot set an adult photo as your profile pic.

One of my contacts is annoying me

You can block a contact at any time from the contacts page. They will no longer be able to message you, bid on your hookups, or see your photos.
