Dating an upperclassman
Phone calls between Texas and Massachusetts won’t bring you back together – it’ll only keep you from meeting new people that are just beyond your dorm room door. As casual as these settings are, it can be a great place to get to know a guy or meet someone new. A mother’s wisest words – if guys see you going out night after night, how will they ever get to miss you?Take it easy if you’re just getting your feet wet with the whole dating game, and don’t feel a need to rush into anything intense. Show face as often as you can without being that girl that everyone expects to run into.
Know your boundaries and ask him – whether you know him well or not – to respect your boundaries; if he doesn’t, walk away.Here are the guidelines of how to deal with the ones who are, and the ones who aren’t. These guys will be super fun to hang out with once they get to know each other well, and you’ll be the cool girl who can get in on that action when you need a break from girl drama.On top of it, you might really connect with one of them.Attention from upperclassmen is surely a plus in any freshman’s book, because they’re seasoned.They know what’s up in this whole college world, and it can be quite nice to have a hot, older guy show you the ropes – he’ll let you know what parties are happening, bring you to date parties, introduce you to his friends and be a pretty face to show up in your tagged pictures on Facebook.Just because he’s sitting alone and doesn’t speak to anyone in the class doesn’t mean he’s a total lunatic.
If you’re interested, all it takes is a slow pack-up-and-hang-back after class to initiate conversation.
Upperclassmen usually aren’t in it for the long haul when they seek out a freshman girl that they’d like to hook up with.
Just because he’s lent you a bunch of attention one night, don’t assume that he’ll be chasing after you for the rest of the semester.
But high school is also a chance for a fresh start, and by making the right first impression, you’ll win plenty of new friends and feel at ease when you walk the halls.
As a freshman girl, eligible cuties seem to be everywhere – and guess what? The attention can be fun, but when it comes down to it, the dating game in college is one that you’ll learn a lot about as time goes on – you might not be a pro right off the bat.
Find out where the hot spots are each night of the week(end), and make sure to show up every once in a while.
