Is It easier or harder to date in college?

I'm in high school and going to college and I don't have a girlfriend. Is it easier for me to try to get a girlfriend before I go to college or wait till I go?

  • I completely agree with ashley90... wait until you are in college. I spent my whole freshman year of college in a relationship with a guy who was still in highschool... and it didn't end well. First of all, the maturity gap between highschool and college is HUGE and I don't think a lot of people realize that until they have been in college for a few months. Sure, people in college may party more and other things that may be labeled as irresponsible, but people are just so much more mentally and emotionally mature. Being on your own, while thrilling at first, eventually causes you to become more responsible, when you are responsible for going to class, work, activities, completing homework, etc.

    I'm a junior in college now and there is even a huge maturity gap between freshmen and juniors. A lot of freshmen that I've encountered still seem to think that they deserve to be babied by professors once they get to college, and its a big slap in the face when you realize how different it is. You change so much when you are in college, you are exposed to so many different people with different beliefs and morals and you can really change more than you think. So I would strongly suggest waiting. Plus, if you find a girlfriend who is still in highschool, and then you move away to college, you'll have to deal with possibly a long-distance relationship.

    In college the types of people are much more diverse than any highschool, and there are so many ways to meet people!

  • That's a good question. I HIGHLY suggest you wait until you are in college until you find a girlfriend because I've found with experience that people tend to want to meet new people and new experiences once college starts. I also suggest you take it slow and just be single and meet people once you get to college.

    That being said, it is probably harder to get an actual girlfriend once you get to college simply because people are wanting to be single more in college than in high school. You'll find that people just want to experience life without being tied down for a while in college.

    But still, I recommend you wait until you are in college.

  • College is a much easier time to meet girls than high school. There are a lot of reasons that I'm not going to go into here, just trust me on it.

    And also if you're going to college soon, then getting a girlfriend right before you leave will only make the relationship extremely strained.

  • If you're doing undergraduate and living on campus, you should have no problem. If you live off campus and go to graduate school, like me, it's hell. You should be fine by waiting.
