Pros and cons of college dating
One really cool app is Bumble, which I only heard about recently; but the best thing about this app is that it requires girls to make the first move and talk to the guy, or else the “connection” ominously disappears forever; very cool, empowering, and just goes to show that the opportunities are endless.
The creators of these apps have very unique ideas in mind, and it’s not all about sleazy hookups (unless that’s what you want, of course, because there’s an app for that).
If you’re in a serious college relationship, you deserve some serious credit.
On top of your giant course load and social commitments, you’re able to balance yet another super demanding responsibility—being a good partner to your significant other.
It has evolved from just a part of our personal and social lives, to a massive opportunity-turned industry for people of all ages. Gone are the days of twiddling your thumbs, waiting to find a way to ask the perfect guy/girl out on a date.
The latter is the spice that we need when dealing with romantic possibilities; it’s the kind of feeling that we later recall as butterflies and knots in our stomach that make for a great story.It’s a lot easier to flirt – or even have a simple conversation – with people if you’re not directly with them and you can read their faces as reactions to everything you say. For a lot of people who may not have enough confidence to charm their way into a relationship in person, a virtual test run can be good practice, and can let you test out how good you are at starting and maintaining conversations.Even on a big college campus, as a senior I sometimes feel like there’s no one else left to meet.“We met online and really hit it off” is by no means embarrassing, but many feel it just doesn’t have the same ring to it.And let’s not forget that it can be very weird to find out that the person you spent your Friday night with through Tinder, actually sits two rows in front of you in Chemistry lecture.
