Tip of the Week

Dating Do's and Don'ts

Dating can be a confusing land to navigate. It becomes even more difficult when the added stresses and burdens of school are added to the mix. Students have different expectations about relationships, monogamy, commitment and how much time should be spent together. Sometimes, this is an easy process when two people are able to share similar expectations about that for which they are looking.

Other times, expectations about a relationship can be a bit more poorly defined.  One person is looking for a hookup. The other person is looking to the future.

The very nature of “testing the waters” to determine whether or not someone likes you is ambiguous. This ambiguity can lead to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. The following suggestions can help students better navigate the world of dating.

To see these suggestions, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
