College dating advice for freshmen
My friend who broke up with the boy she dated her entire freshman year said that it was a great relationship and that she doesn't regret spending her freshman year with someone.
She is glad she didn't randomly hook up with several boys and learned a lot about herself in the time that she was in the relationship. After all, I personally haven't met anyone that regrets being with the person they dated even if it led to a breakup.
To get started, Her Campus has put together a list of the DOs and DON’Ts of college dating.
Who, you ask, knew there was such a science behind college guys, anyway? Well, maybe, but there might be a little bit more to it.
But be warned: a regular hookup doesn’t mean professing your love for one another is the next step.
Now that you’re a few weeks into your first semester, you may be anxious to test the waters in your first college relationship. You may feel obligated to go with the crowd and leave your comfort zone to pursue a relationship; but at the same time, maybe you’re afraid that your hookup(s) will give you an undesirable rep.
We joke that they'll be married one day, though she doesn't like to think that far in advance.
Yet she does say that even if they don't get married, she'll look back at those four years and remember that she shared college with someone truly special.
When it comes to the definition of dating on college campuses, hooking up is typically much more common.
Many of us have ended up feeling awful as a result of a college relationship, but never feel afraid to confide, get guidance, and treat yo'self!
Let’s be honest: dating in college is a lot more complicated than dating in high school.
When I was first getting ready to pack up my bags and head to college, the number-one rule I was told was "don't get into a relationship your first year of college — just enjoy yourself."Though I listened, two of my best friends did start dating within the second month of their freshman year.
One who is a senior now and still in the relationship and the other broke up with her boyfriend at the end of freshman year.
