Maybe I feel this way because my dating life didn’t actually start until college, but I think it’s actually because the high school social bullshit falls away and people are free to like who they like – which is just as great as it sounds. College dating is different from high school dating because it comes with its own set of rules, perks, and pitfalls.
You’ll need to spend some time adjusting, since you don’t just graduate high school and know exactly what to do (that would be nice though).
There are some universal truths about dating in college that you need to know in order to have the best experience you can. Well, for most of you, it’s your first time living away from your parents.
Not only that – there’s not a single parent living in your whole dorm building.

Homework tips and ideas on how parents can help their child make the grade.
This clearly means constant hook ups, partying nonstop, and no drama, right? Everyone experiences college differently and there is no right answer about how to date and what rules to follow there…
Either way, college is still that time of self exploration, but it’s also the moments in life where you can make the best (and sometimes the worst) dating mistakes of your life.
Yet, the entire point of dating is to learn from your mistakes, and to keep trying new things; always learning something new aboutt yourself is bound to help you down the road, especially when you begin dating after graduation. Just “going for it” may be easy for some (for me it was always exciting meeting someone and going on dates,) but for others it could be scary.
