Start dating after college
It wasn’t until after I decided to take matters into my own hands and sent the first message that I actually had decent conversations with guys I wanted to know.Use it as an excuse to try something new When will you ever get the chance to spontaneously explore San Francisco at 2 AM, or eat your first oyster ever? Dates are the time to try everything you’ve always wanted to, and those you’ve never thought you would.There’s no better way to make a date fun than trying something unexpected and new.Talk it out with friends you trust It can be easy to ask anyone and everyone you meet about relationship advice…and that can get confusing since everyone has different opinions on what to do.It’s when you’re honest with each other that you reach a level of closeness you never thought you’d have.Talk about what you want and what your boundaries are from the start.Those who are worth it will respect that, and for those who don’t, kick them to the curb.
Embrace your mistakes I’ll admit that I kept seeing a guy I KNEW was bad news for months, even after swearing him off to my friends and family.I had strong doubts about this and after going against it, I still went out with the guy a second time…where I still felt absolutely nothing—and I knew this from the first date!I spent the rest of the night trying to be interested, when all I wanted to do was go home.It was after things fell through the second time around that I finally got the picture. Sometimes what you need is the reality of your actions (and that second break-up) to help you learn and move forward.Don’t force yourself to give a second chance I’ve always been told that if I’m unsure about a guy after the first date, then to always give them a second chance to see if you connect the second time around.
