So I am a senior in High School right now and haven't dated since my sophomore year because I got tired of the none sense accompanied with it. How much different is being college and looking for someone to be your significant other or potential spouse vs. the high school boyfriend/girlfriend? Right now I am kinda afraid of not being able to find someone to settle down with, I know its a large world and college will have an exponential amount more of people.

From my experience, there aren't too many real relationships or dating that goes on at first. Almost all the girls and guys are just looking for sex with as many different kinds of people as they can f***. Mostly everyone has just been given an unadulterated chance to explore their own sexuality.
After that there's this sorta weird boyfriend/girlfriend thing that goes on. I've seen this happen multiple times with roommates and friends but anyway, No one really officially has a relationship but they chose a significant other that would be supremely displeased if one or the other would go hooking up with someone else.
I'm not sure why this happens but I could only deduce that it was some kind of insurance policy in case that some "cheating" did go on. Usually these faux-ships don' last over the course of 2 semesters or sometimes 1. I roomed with a football player one year and he had about 6 or 7 of these going on at the same time with the each of the girls thinking they were the only one, unknowing of the truth. So its confusing and tricky. Good luck bro.0
