As a freshman girl, eligible cuties seem to be everywhere – and guess what? The attention can be fun, but when it comes down to it, the dating game in college is one that you’ll learn a lot about as time goes on – you might not be a pro right off the bat.To get started, Her Campus has put together a list of the DOs and DON’Ts of college dating.
No, we can’t be certain that what all guys are looking for is sex, but that’s definitely a part of college hook-ups.
He might want it and he might even ask for it, but if you’re uncomfortable, it’s not up to you to give it to him.
While a lot of guys don’t even have the courtesy to take a girl out for dinner – or even coffee?!
– there are some who like to kick it old school and go for the dinner and a movie.
They know what’s up in this whole college world, and it can be quite nice to have a hot, older guy show you the ropes – he’ll let you know what parties are happening, bring you to date parties, introduce you to his friends and be a pretty face to show up in your tagged pictures on Facebook.
That said, don’t feel the need to hook up with him purely because he’s “older and wiser…” because he may just turn out to be pretty stupid.
Take it easy if you’re just getting your feet wet with the whole dating game, and don’t feel a need to rush into anything intense. Show face as often as you can without being that girl that everyone expects to run into.
If they’re showing up for class at all, then you know they’ve at least got something going for them.
And hey, maybe he’s even smart and organized enough for you to make him your “study buddy.” Study dates are pretty much the best dates most college girls can hope for within the first month or so of school (news flash: college guys are usually cheap).
