Are you struggling with dating after college graduation?There is a big difference between a college relationship and a mature adult relationship.Let our dating coach's response to this reader help you.Dear Lori, my boyfriend and I have been together for over a year and a half. I am a freshman in college and he just graduated from college. He comes in every other day and stays for weekends. I miss the man I fell in love with at first, not this stressed out man that takes his stress out on me. I know there are other guys that would love to date me but I don't want to lose him; it's been so long.Should you not meet these expectations, the worst that could happen was a poor grade and perhaps upset parents.The most stressful aspect of your lives during this time came at finals.This makes a lot of sense and is a very wise decision on your part.This is a time in your life when you should be enjoying the lighthearted and fun experiences college provides.
I'm not the type of guy that likes bars or clubs, and I don't want to go to church for the wrong reasons. I hang out with friends as much as possible, so any connections they have should be available but that is really quite dry.
Finances and living arrangements were based on being students and although you might have felt that college life made you independent, both of you were still dependent.
The expectations in college are based on what your professors expect from you.
You can get all the advice you want about volunteering, or participating in certain activities, but if you are only doing those things with the hopes of meeting someone, it won't work, because it is not sincere.
I would tell you to continue to participate in the activities you like, because eventually if you keep participating in these activities and groups that are related to these activities, you will run into people who know a woman who may be a good fit.
