Dating in college freshman year
Don’t get stuck on the ones that are taken, you don’t deserve to have to wait around.If…you haven't completely cut off loose ends yet either.Let’s face it, leaving home doesn’t necessarily mean completely leaving behind old flames. But really, you are now on a campus with countless people and it is perfectly normal to want to let loose and enjoy your newfound freedom.You may have started college with a high school sweetheart still in tow, while you still had a “thing” with someone back home, or with a still-mending heart from a recent breakup. Go to your first frat party, explore the city, maybe have a few flings and just enjoy the year. If…you get tired of the field..no one else seems to get bored.From hanging out and watching TV in each other's rooms to meeting in the dining hall for every meal, we spent more than enough time together.Then, slowly but surely, things started fizzling out between us, and I started realizing I had invested literally no energy into making friends of my own.It is normal to still have feelings for those you have left behind, just remember to also embrace the opportunity around you. The first few weeks of freshman year have flown by and although the parties and activities have been fun, you feel like you just want someone to talk to on a consistent basis.

You are free now and college should be a time of self-discovery. How do you ask for their number without being obvious? No one seems to want to make the first move, so just go ahead and do it.
