Many people go to college with the intent to spend the time learning. However, you won’t be going to classes and doing homework all day, every day. What are you going to do in your spare time (when you’re not working, of course)?
So, maybe you’re not trying to find love, but that’s generally when you find it. College is a great time to start dating, meet new people, and have fun. You’ll meet a myriad of different types of people from all over the world, so why swear off dating with so many options?
Look In Class
One of the best places in college to find someone to date, and possibly love, is in class. You spend a lot of time there, and if they are taking one of your electives it’s probably because they are interested in some of the same things as you. Why not meet up for coffee or something after class and discuss class, life, relationships, whatever.
Maybe you will meet someone in the library, or maybe you’ll hit it off with someone that is in a study group with you. There are so many chances to meet someone you could really connect with when it comes to college and learning.
Go To Parties
If you aren’t having any luck meeting someone to at least date in classes, maybe you should start getting out more when it comes to college. You could meet someone at a party, and then you don’t have to worry about seeing someone in class all the time if things just don’t work out.
Parties might not be the best if you aren’t into the party scene. You could go to different college events, like protests or concerts, in order to find people into what you have an interest in. If you’re working while you’re in school you might even meet someone through work, whether it’s a coworker or someone that eats/drinks/shops where you work.
Keep It Casual
You’re in college, there is no hurry when it comes to finding love. Make your dates more a casual thing. Instead of romantic dinners, try going to lunch or getting coffee together. Go to parties together, or attend other events together.
Since you’re a busy college student, casual dating will work out better and it gives you time to get to know one another before you leap into anything serious. And, if the love bug bites you, then you can get more serious and do some romantic dates.
Finding love can happen in college, you just need to make sure it doesn’t take your focus away from classes. You can have the career of your dreams and the love of your dreams too!
