    Why do guys not mind how many sexual partners a girl has had when it comes to hooking up or a 'just sex' but do mind when it comes to settling down and a relationship?

    I find the same is true of female attitudes.

    Because when they are hooking up, sex is the only thing they are looking for. Whereas, in a relationship there is 'love' and all that wish-wosh, therefore, one would care to know how many people this person has been with, in order to judge their 'experience', so to speak.

    If it's just for a one night stand, you care about what that person looks like/acts like now.

    In a relationship you care about how this person acts, acted and will act.

    This explains the differences in opinion between hook ups and relationships.
