College relationships and dating other people
Couples generally do not have much conflict at this stage of the cycle as each is really trying hard to impress the other person.
Going slowly in making any decisions about a relationship are more likely to be better ones than moving quickly (unless it is clear that the relationship is not a good fit).I tend to keep my focus on this site primarily to things that are as broadly applicable as possible -- things you can do no matter who you are or where you are in life to do better with women.But the other day I had a reader write in asking about dating in college, and I thought the topic might be on worth getting a post up on.The initial meeting may take place over the internet, through friends, in a church or social group, at a party or bar or any one of a myriad of many different places.Different arenas for meeting allow for different opportunities to get to know each other and see if there is enough curiosity or interest to take it to the next level which would involve arranging a second or third meeting.” This stage may last for 3 or 4 months depending on the individuals and their maturity, experience and self-understanding.
Towards the end of this stage, and hopefully at other times throughout it, it is not unusual for questions of “is this the right person for me” to emerge.
Unfortunately, some people don’t fully experience and process each stage as an opportunity for personal growth or to make a healthy evaluation about the relationship or about themselves.
Stage 1: Initial Meeting/Attraction Dating relationships have to start somewhere.
Pushing for an answer; however, may cause real problems in the relationship.
Each person needs to listen to their own inner voice and wisdom.
Stage 2: Curiosity, Interest, and Infatuation During the second stage, attraction and infatuation are most pronounced.
