When it comes to college there is a lot of grey area in the world of dating. For those looking for a real relationship and a connection, lines can get blurred between friends with benefits and a traditional relationship. This is when it is time for you to take a stand and eliminate the grey area’s in your own life. Take a second to evaluate your life choices, how are you currently meeting the men/women in your life? If it is from drunken escapades, tinder, bumble or another hookup app, chances are you aren’t looking in the right places.
People attract what they put out into the world, so if you want to attract a partner that is looking for a real relationship act like it. When you go out don’t be the person who disappears at parties with a stranger, or be the two in the morning booty call. Be your most beautiful self and recognize that your worth is so much more than you are giving yourself credit for. You deserve someone who will sit with you on your worst days, binge watch Netflix with you, and even take on new adventures with you. I promise that 9 times out of 10 the stranger you went home with last night will not call, text or even make eye contact with you in the dining hall the next day, because what they wanted was a warm body.
People who go looking for relationships don’t find them most of the time. The best relationships are the ones who find you when you aren’t expecting it. You will one day be in class just taking notes when you turn around and there they will be. When your day comes smile, and enjoy the ride because loving someone is one of the most incredible experiences a person has in their life. Until you find your prince charming, enjoy your life, go on adventures alone or with friends, conquer your fears, travel and accomplish goals.
