    19 and no dating experience, but I want to start.

    Going to an all-male high school, I never really had any opportunity to date as a teen. Now that I’ve started college and am back in a co-ed environment, I feel like I should try dating, but I have no idea how to go about doing it. I feel mature enough to handle a romantic relationship, but I’m just not sure what the best way to establish one is. I’ve been getting involved on campus and making both male and female friends, but nobody really date-able. I know I’ve only been here a month, but I’m just not sure if I should continue waiting, or maybe try online dating or something. I’ve seen people say that I need to wait for things to fall into place, but I’ve also seen people argue against this and say that dating is a necessary social skill to learn during college.

    I’m just confused. How important should dating be to me right now (obviously not more important than school, of course)? How should I go about entering the dating scene? I want to find proper advice that’ll work for me.

    Hi. I’m experiencing your same issue. I’m 19 as weel and I have no dating experience but I’d really like to date someone or get to know a girl better. Mk family and my friends told me the daating experience is important but it’s not the main issue of your life. Also my relatives amd my buddies told me not to date your friends or people you know well. If you wanna date someone, go for strangers. You don’t need to wait. Just go and join people. Sometimes you can be rejected but if you keep on , you’ll make it. Unfortunately all my friends are very boring and lazy so I’m gonna do this all on my own and that’s a little bit of an issue. So surround yourself with active people and go for dates if you really feel like it. You won’t regret.

    Even having never dated before, I can completely understand this. I had one good female friend back home; been friends since elementary school and I couldn’t imagine us in a romantic relationship. Same can be said for the girls I’ve been meeting on campus; while they started off as potential romances, my feelings began to fade once I learned they weren’t available (I didn’t tell them how I felt or anything; just found out about their status through casual conversation). This is kind of why I’m leaning towards online dating; both of us would know our intents toward each other. But at the same time, doing that kind of feels like going against nature, so to speak.
