Dating at different colleges
Are you willing to sacrifice your full college experience for this person?Feeling love is an incredible thing, something that a person should feel lucky to have experienced, so it is natural to want to hold onto that.
Staying in a committed relationship with a person you are only going to see during school breaks and perhaps during the summer is going to seriously hinder your ability to be socially active.Here’s the question: can you be in a relationship and still do all of that? We started thinking about this after seeing this post in the message boards. Should you break up with your high school sweetheart just so you can experience other things (and people)? Check out what these girls think, and then give us your opinion in the comments.xbubblexwandsx asked: I have a friend who argues that the college experience must include “branching out socially, growing alone” etc.So you must ask yourself, is the person you are with now worth all of this time and energy?You do not want to put yourself in a situation where you are planning your life around someone who you never see.Although it may be hard to believe, there are more good looking, smart, funny, cool, interesting people than the one you are dating, and if you look around, you are probably surrounded by them.
If you shut yourself off from the network of people around you, you are going to miss out on perhaps someone even better suited for you, with goals and plans similar to yours.
If you have a happy and balanced relationship, having a significant other during your college years isn’t going to hurt you or ruin your experience.
You can absolutely still get the most out of college without sleeping around – hooking up with lots of people might make a great experience for some people, but everyone is different.
To maintain a relationship, you have to have a positive attitude, support one another, communicate regularly, and visit each other when you can on weekends and breaks.
It is also important to develop your own new social networks, so having some distance from your significant other isn't necessarily a bad thing.
College is supposed to be the best four years of your life.
