Mensagem:  Hi pessoal! :) :) :) I would agree with Tom's definitions of hookup and pickup (nouns) and to hook up/to pick up (verbs) as being their most generally accepted usage in the US. That said, to hookup is an individual preference and needs to be taken in context in that I may use hookup/to hook up one way and someone else might use it in another; most assuredly some people do use hooking up to mean meeting up with a boyfriend or girlfriend for an encounter [the seriousness or the duration of the relationship would have no significance in this definition and the extent of the sex in the relations also would be all inclusive – one hookup might have a lot, one might not – depends on who's gettin' lucky!! :)]. Maybe "ficar" might loosely mean "to date casually," which implies no commitment, time or otherwise, and implies possible sexual relations. It does not mean, unless you're oriented in that direction, that you are going out with someone of the same sex. I can hook up with a girl friend for dinner but I'll be darned if I will casually date her! Does this help at all? If not, then just count it as my two cents' worth :) :) :) Um abraço, Ana
