College freshman dating tips

In my honest opinion dating will just hinder you from doing all that.I’m not going to sit here and tell you that you should never date in college but I am saying to weigh your options and to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before you get into it too fast. Not even three months into my collegiate career and I was already head over heels for him.I was thinking like Machiavelli, adopting an “ends justify the means” mindset – except, I didn’t have a particular end in mind. In a way, the ends do justify the means when it comes to how you spend your time in college – but you need to clearly define the ends and make sure that they’re what you want.Don’t blindly take the advice of advisors and recruiters and simply do things because they “look impressive”.It’s a well-known fact that reading textbooks is about the most effective way to check yourself into a short coma, and textbook authors’ academically bloated writing styles are almost never engaging.In short, textbook reading can often be a pretty big waste of time.You don’t know what you want yet, who you’re going to meet and you will probably change your major about 1,000 times; there is no room for serious dating.Until you find what it is you are looking for, I suggest you focus on yourself, make memories with your friends and tell dating to move out of the way, at least for a little while!

I’d recommend doing reading assignments when the semester begins, and then gauging their usefulness by comparing what you read to what’s presented in class and what ends up on the first test.

I thought, hey this is the perfect way to start my freshman year of college, new school, new boyfriend, I felt on top of the world.

But as the relationship went on I found myself missing out on things that I planned on doing in college before I even met him.

That’s why I’m including this controversial tip: don’t do all your assigned reading.2014 update – I made a video that goes more in-depth on this tip: are few and far in between.

For the most part, you’ll have professors who present most of the important material from the text during class, and include most of what’s on the test in their powerpoint slides.
