Is dating easier after high school?

T4R I talked to a few friends that have been out of high school for a few years and they say dating is easier. Is it true?

  • I find dating in Uni a lot easier. Part of that is because I used to live in a village with only a handful of girls and had a lingering rep as the unpopular geek even after I started working out, becoming more confident and better looking. Moved to a city for Uni, no one knew me and I was able to reinvent myself. Spent a few months as that guy who pulled girls in my social circle until I met my current girlfriend.

    • I think my situation was the best. I just didn't care at all, and eventually when I was 17 a girl came after me. We've now been dating for 3 years. Moral of the story, don't fret and don't care about it. It's not a big deal, eventually something will happen.

    • I'd say it's easier. There's less pressure about it.

    • Yes because when you ask out a girl and she says no it's not like you will see her everyday now.

    • There is only one constant with women, and that is that they are puzzling.

      • It depends on who you go after and where you are in your life. On the positive side, there's going to be more girls out there who have "grown up" and actually have their life on track. But there's also going to be a fair amount of girls who are still immature and act without considering the consequences. My older bro's current girlfriend is the first one, and everything seems to be going great. His previous one... Let's just say she was an angry drunk and he just bailed out of that relationship. My bro's got his career going, while I'm broke and still trying to finish my certifications. So obviously, I'm not on the dating scene.

        • If you're attractive and successful So basically we're all screwed. I've never even held a girl's hand and I'm 21 in two months.

          • Yeah. But don't worry about girls; put time into bettering yourself. Girls love a guy with goals.

              Yes -Less stigma of 'what everyone else' (read: classmates/friends) think. (You like [i]HER[/i]?) -Less relying on parental approval -People tend to grow up pretty quick after high school and things become much more real. -Less preconceived ideas about other people or what people may have thought of you No -It's still rough actually asking anyone out the first time or 2, no matter when it is. -No more parental financial backing you may have had funding dating in high school -Everything IS real. Well except for the false faces and expectations.

              • 'Dating' in high school mostly just means you can impress your friends by saying you're dating somebody. It was all about self-esteem and all that. I assume it'd get easier when 'coolness' isn't a factor.

                • Yes. Everything is easier after high school. Except life. Life gets much harder when you have to pay bills, get a job etc. Then you realise high school was actually great.

                  • I'd say they're very different. Highschool was easy only if you had a car or if you double dated with someone who did.

                  • Dating in highschool sucks unless both parties are willing to put forth the effort, making it similar to a marriage. And as much as it sucks, it's necessary. You need to learn to pick up confidence early. I only know a handful of people who did nothing during highschool (sexual or otherwise), and are now in a loving relationship in college.
