Dating a college classmate
Have you ever thought about dating that cute boy/girl in your class?Well for most college students it hasn't turned out very well.Students start school in late August and have two “semesters” in which to earn credits.By next school year, however, all of Ohio’s public universities will be on semesters (I believe). You have finals in a few weeks, which means you may or may not have another opportunity to mention it.Also, if something goes wrong, you'll need your core group of friends to hold you up and be there for you. Having middle men and friends that like to interfere ('help') only makes problems worse. Whether you're 15 or 55, keeping open communication with the person you're dating is absolutely essential.High schools are full of rumors and drama - don't get sucked into arguments caused by something a friend of a friend might have seen. Most of bad break-ups and horrible fights of high school dating could have been avoided if the couple had made an effort to talk to one another about problems instead of jumping to conclusions. Don't push your boundaries, and don't let anyone else cross them.
Try to find someone that you think you can relate to - socially and mentally. Nothing is worse than being the one who 'shoulda-seen-it-coming' when a person's old habits repeat themselves. Separate your relationship from your school responsibilities.For those of us on the quarter system, flirting with classmates has to be done in a timely manner. And, at a school the size of The Ohio State University (55,000 students), I wouldn’t feel too confident about whimsically running into him again.We only have ten weeks to make our moves, so it’s necessary to balance aggressive flirting with appropriate restraint. In class, when the professor isn’t lecturing (of course), slip in a, “so, what are you up to tonight/this weekend?I really can't tell if she sees me in any romantic sense, is just being polite, or is just another introvert who feels more comfortable around me. The only thing that you haven't done is to make it official.Anything specific I should look out for, or do to find out? At the school library or one of the tables and see how things go. Don't over-value flirts, they're just there to keep you interested.3. At the school library or one of the tables and see how things go. I don't know how to kiss, its overwhelming, just imagining makes me shutdown. Damn, I sound like a 12 year old on her 1st classmate crush. If this is what you call "dating" then I am "dating" a few people at the same time.
