For twenty-somethings who live far away from family, it’s getting harder and harder to fly home for Thanksgiving—who has the funds AND the patience for that type of family dysfunction when Christmas is right around the corner?!

In response, many of us choose to take part in Friendsgiving—the usually cheaper alternative to Thanksgiving that allows us to choose who we want to spend our day of cooking and bingeing and drinking with while skipping out on the Ambrosia salad.

Because Friendsgiving is so much less formal than Thanksgiving, setting up the guest list—or, more accurately, sending a last-minute mass text—is usually pretty straightforward. That is, until it comes to the hookup, the FWB, the booty call—whatever you call him or her. On one hand, inviting this person could be a great chance to showcase your hosting, mixing, and cooking talents. On the other, if the booty call has not been test driven in a group setting before, well, Friendsgiving may not be the best occasion.

If you’re wondering if you should add YOUR casual hookup to the Friendsgiving table, put him or her to the ultimate test—our totally foolproof flowchart!
