I tend to go on dates and hook up at the beginning of a relationship, which seems to work well for me.
– Alison*I find that what I want is a friend-with-benefits relationship, but guys are so bad at sticking to the rules.My rules are: either person can end it whenever, no harm done, no questions asked.Last week we spoke to three sociologists who debunked some of the myths surrounding college dating — namely that hook-up culture is more of a subculture, and yes, dating still exists. We interviewed 30 campus co-eds to find out, and asked them whether or not they prefer hooking up to dating or vice versa.Their answers span the entire relationship spectrum, proving that attitudes towards college relationships are diverse and changing. Everyone at college is afraid of losing touch after graduation, so taking a chance on keeping someone around in a serious way is scary.– Matt*I’m happy being single, but I also like the idea that there’s someone out there who likes you, thinks about you all the time, and wants to be with you.
Guys don’t ever approach me and people say it’s because I’m intimidating but I literally look like I’m 12 years old so I don’t get it. It's really nice to have someone always there and interested in my day and who wants to spend time with me.I like being in a relationship better because I like thinking about another person all the time, and I feel like I’m more centered when I’m in a relationship.– Nathan* I hooked up a lot freshman year — I even hooked up with a guy off Tinder — but now I’m in a relationship and I’m really happy.Then I had a friend-with-benefits who I dated on and off.I wasn’t that into it and I didn’t want to be in a relationship.I do have some anxiety about it though, because it’s been almost two years and he hasn’t said, “I love you.” – Isabella*I came in with a girlfriend freshman year, which I ended up regretting.
