It reminds me of this meme that has a picture of all these kids throwing their graduation hats in the air and the caption says, "congratulations, you just completed the easiest part of your life." Unfortunately, from my experience, this is true. I am turning 40 in a few weeks, and after college it was/is VERY hard to do much of anything. We all had jobs and futures and hopes that we would not be in the economic position we are today.

Once you graduate, you will all scatter out into the world.

All those things help but if I'm not able to actually meet someone then its hard to show them that lol I think it will be easier to actually have a relationship after school since life will be more serious and less drama...the trouble is actually finding someone.

I agree that most people in college "just want to have fun" and not get attached which sucks for me lol I'm just a little worried because I thought I'd marry my high school sweetheart (that lasted through college but ended unfortunately) then I wanted to meet someone at university which almost happened but didn't.

I was also LTR-minded from a very young age and it made being single a very frustrating experience.

I teach at a small university in a city of 30,000 and a lot of girls practically run to the altar right after graduation. Whybdid it take you 2 years after college to get a relationship?

I agree that most people in college "just want to have fun" and not get attached which sucks for me lol It's just as easy. And, you'll be spending 40 hours a week with them, going out to lunch, after work parties, etc.

Online dating here is terrible its like either 18-19 year olds who just like to drink and party or 20-24 year olds with 2 kids (soooo many single parents).

Those you meet now may not be as good long term prospects as you'll meet in the real world.

Very few people end up long-term with their high school or university partners.

If I was single until 40 I'd be pretty upset about that tho, I've got plans so really hope I can execute them.

Problem is having those plans to get married is hard because its reliant on meeting someone and you have no control over their feelings I was single the entire way through college and for 2 years after.
