Dating advice for women in college
Devote the years you’re enrolled in college first to your education and pursuit of a profession.
Of course, that’s second to keeping alive your relationships with God, your family and friends.
For now, my daughter’s attending a community college. In either case, as she meets new young men, new opportunities a different world than what she’s been used to will open up to her.
“There are plenty of people having more traditional dates and having long-term relationships.Let me suggest that college-bound high schoolers add one more item to their collegiate checklist: the gender ratio.If applicants and their parents want to know whether the dating scene at a particular college is geared more towards wild hookups or traditional relationships, the best barometer will always be the ratio of women to men on campus.She was homeschooled, and her interactions with boys were limited in comparison to girls who attend high school.Now that she’s entered adulthood, drives a car, and goes more places without a parent tagging along, the opportunities for dating are multiplying.
And, no, it’s not the mostly male colleges where the hookup culture reigns supreme. Because the way today’s heterosexual college students describe sex and dating at their own schools matches up with the scholarly research on gender ratios and how they affect behavior.
