There is a misconception about college that leaves many a lonely college student wondering where they went wrong. The myth and misconception that many young college students have about college is that they will easily and instantly be able to find a date simply by attending classes. However, this is definitely not the case; single men and single women do not just walk around asking people to dates every day. This is not to say that many students do not find dates but rather that the people who want to find a date will find a date if they are willing to put themselves out there and work to get one. There are many ways to find a date in college, which can be as easy as asking the person you like if they would just want to hang out, but the best way to find a date is to just go where the singles go.
There are usually a few hot spots around campus where many students gather to either eat or just enjoy each others’ company. This is a great place for one to find dating prospects! Another great idea is to check out speed dating venues and online sites which offer speed date services. Speed dating allows singles to meet multiple different people in a short amount of time so they can efficiently and safely find someone they can connect with in a low pressure environment. Many students prefer speed dating environments because it allows them to be a ‘dating’ situation which cuts down on the pressure and awkwardness that exists in normal dating situations. Once a single meets another single they are attracted to in a speed date venue they can then choose to pursue them for something more or move on to other singles, which is beneficial for everyone.
