In college you're new to the process of "adulting" -- but you are adulting nonetheless.
Hell, I would've had a 4.0 GPA if I hadn't devoted myself and my freshman year to my high school boyfriend, then unnamed members of the baseball team during the rest of my liberal arts career.
Freshman-to-senior year is one giant learning curve, and everyone is naturally naive.
The negative here is this: "You can experience passion, connection, and deep admiration in a college relationship," explains Weber, "but young people often confuse love with sex, and lust with intimacy." Settling too quickly can lead to an unfulfilling long-term relationship, or getting your heart broken.
There are some students who just aren't into the dating game.
They'd rather put their time and energy into academics, athletics, and fostering platonic friendships.
