It's unlikely I'm going to find girls my age doing the weekly grocery shop for example! If you're like most folks in the West, attending university is the first time in your life you're finally out on your own. Often, that kid who was the coolest kid in school in 12th grade ends up being just another face in the crowd in college -- and that guy who was a complete geek in high school ends up find a degree of acceptance in university he didn't know existed for folks like him.
Put differently, it's the first time you've got near-total freedom, and don't have Mom and Dad looking over your shoulder, telling you to behave, and acting shocked when you want to do the same things now that were your age. No matter who you were before, you're probably going to find college jarring.
In college though, it's continually being redefined, because everyone is on such disparate paths. You can't change cities; you probably won't be traveling much; you will still eventually settle in with a clique of friends, most likely.
I recently got out of a 3 year relationship which lasted all the way through my time at college.
He writes: Dear Chase, First off, terrific website.
I haven't found anything on the web like the quality of articles you write and the depth you explore.
I tend to keep my focus on this site primarily to things that are as broadly applicable as possible -- things you can do no matter who you are or where you are in life to do better with women.
But the other day I had a reader write in asking about dating in college, and I thought the topic might be on worth getting a post up on.
