Even though online dating seems like a new concept, you still have to treat some aspects the same as regular dating.
It’s good to get to know the person first by chatting, and even video chatting before meeting in person.
Whether that person is on the same campus as you or if they’re hours away, it’s still good to have some time to yourself.
I can understand wanting to video chat all the time because you’re excited about the person.
You can match with someone right down the street from you or even across the world.
I’ve known people who have found their significant other through dating apps, even though they’re on the same campus.
However, dating in college can be complicated depending on the type of school you’re going to. Online dating has many forms, such as chatting anonymously, on an actual dating website, or even an app on your phone.
Perhaps you go to a school where you’ve tried to find someone in in your classes, at a club meeting, or even at a party, but you just don’t want to take that next step with them. I personally didn’t find anyone on my campus but that doesn’t mean that you’re destined to be alone in college. Technology has allowed us to find someone we’re into simply by pressing a few buttons and taking a questionnaire or two.
You’re in college, surrounded by thousands of new faces and you’re ready to find that special someone.
It can be awkward having to reject someone or even being rejected because the goals of the relationship didn’t match when you met in person.
This way, you’re able to find someone that looking for the same thing as you, and you can avoid the ones that aren’t.
Also, meeting for the first time can be awkward, but you just have to keep in mind that they’re probably the same person that you’ve been talking to online and you have liked that person enough to want to meet them.
You may have some backlash from people, asking why you can’t just meet someone at a party or in class. College, even though is partly about meeting new people, doesn’t mean that you’ll meet that special person there.
