Benefits of dating in college
After college, it might seem like letting someone buy you a drink and trying to chat over blasting music is the only way to find potential dates.And while this endeavor can be a lot of fun and a great tool to blow off the stress of the work week, research suggests these meet-ups rarely lead to anything serious.
Here’s a stat that might surprise you: Unmarried people in their 20s are less likely to use condoms than adolescents are.
Condoms may no longer be cheap or free at the campus health center, but birth control isn’t an area to scrimp and save.
Whatever the price, it’s a lot lower than the cost of a baby or treatment for an STI.
Worst-case scenario, you’ll come out of it with some crowd-pleasing horror stories.
In college, it’s kind of tricky to date or hook up with multiple people at one time — odds are pretty high you’ll run into one of your flames while making out with another one at a party. As long as you haven’t agreed to see anyone exclusively, it’s totally OK to date around (this is apparently known as “multi-dating”).
Everyone knows someone who met her husband/wife/life partner/cat-sitter on the Internet.
