Dating and relationships in college

dating and relationships in college-50

Here's why: Our generation has embraced the “hook-up culture.” Casual sex has been occurring for decades — everyone's been doing it for years.

The problem is that we, as a generation, have become so reliant on “hooking up” that we rarely make a more intimate and emotional connection with one another. It's the lack of actual courtship — giving out your phone number, making plans, dinner and a movie, meeting the parents, etc. Young, single ladies nowadays are often wrongfully stereotyped as being “too emotional,” “crazy” or “desperate” for wanting to strike a deeper connection.

We're busy building our empires and figuring out how to achieve our own goals, too. The male idea of “what women actually want” needs to be revisited.

But is it really so terrible to want to have someone with whom to share our success? Women are more than capable of having a casual sexual relationship.

Perhaps no relationship other than that with our "self" matters more during our college years than the relationship with our love interest.
