Along with your diploma comes a whole new dating scene.
The guys haven’t magically transformed into perfect gentlemen, but you’re not so different from your crazy college self either—for now at least.
Living alone in a big city for the first time with a real job and a whole new selection of men isn’t as simple as it seems.
Booty calls/hook-ups are not relationships You might have followed the “we’re together” mentality in college even if you were just hooking up and not going on actual dates.
But after college, you should expect him to take you out if he’s serious about being with you, not just take you back to his apartment.
If he doesn’t, you’re probably not in a relationship.
“I thought hooking up was the be-all end-all of dating since that’s all that I knew in college, but this all changed after graduation when I met a guy at work.
Our first date consisted of dinner and a walk in the park, not hooking up and sleeping at his place,” says Rachel* from Grand Valley State University.
