How to Start Dating in College

“How to start dating in college” should probably be an entire college course in itself.  After all dating is a huge part of our lives, yet nobody really teaches us how to do it right.  If you’re a college student looking to have more success meeting and dating women, here are some tips that will help you learn how to start dating in college.

Keep an active social life

An important yet often overlooked tip for how to start dating in college is simply to keep an active social life.  Continue meeting new people and try to make your social circle as wide as possible.  The more friends you make the more opportunities you’ll have to be introduced to single, attractive women through mutual friends.

To keep an active social life make a point to get out there and join as many clubs, teams, or organization as you can fit into your schedule.  Even extracurricular classes (like golf or ballroom dance) can be an excellent resource for making new friends.

Keeping things low-pressure

Once you meet a girl you’re interested in plan a time for the two of you to get together.  This could mean asking her on a date, but if you barely know the girl then she may be hesitant to agree to that.  So in times like this your best bet may be to invite her to join you and your friends at some social event – like a party, or college football game.  Group outings like this don’t have the same pressure or expectations as a one-on-one date, but still give you a chance to get to know one another.  They can be a great first step when figuring out how to start dating in college.

Create opportunities for meet-ups

If there’s nothing interesting going on at your school then create a fun event you can bring women to whenever you want.  Perhaps you can start up a weekly game night with your friends, or if you have access to a kitchen start a weekly pot-luck dinner.  Having a regular get-together like this gives you something fun and low-pressure to invite women to.

Be inclusive

A big part of learning how to start dating in college is keeping your options open.  So when you’re out meeting people, remember to be as inclusive as possible.  Say hi and be just as fun and social with the guy in the corner as you would with the hot girl.  This is going to help in a couple ways:

First, by being cool with everyone you show you’re not one of those guys just looking to suck up to the good-looking girl (which immediately separates you from a lot of the guys out there).  Second, when a girl sees you being fun and social with everyone it’s going to get her attention.  She’s going to start wondering who you are and want to get to know you better.  Finally, by being social with everyone you give yourself the opportunity to make your social circle as wide as possible.

Meeting women

Some guys think the only time to meet a woman in college is at a party.  But if you know the fundamentals for meeting women and making a good impression, then you can meet women absolutely anywhere – the street, in class, the dining hall, the library – anywhere.

The fundamentals for meeting women start with two simple things, being confident and friendly.  So when you see a girl you want to meet walk up to her directly, make eye contact and give her a warm smile.  From there, just be genuine and say something like “Hi, you’re really cute, my name is ___” (lots of guys are afraid to be this up-front, so this can score you big confidence points).  Or, if you want something a bit more playful you could say something along the lines of “Well you look like trouble…” (A banter line like this is great for starting a conversation in a high-energy environment, like a bar or party).

Remember, you don’t need to “wow” a girl right off the bat with some amazing “pickup line” in order to get her attracted.  Just by being confident and friendly you’ve got a great chance of getting the girl interested in you and curious to get to know you.  (For more on how to meet women go to:

Getting the date

As mentioned earlier sometimes the best way to keep things low-pressure is to invite a girl out to a social event where you can hang out with a group of friends.  But if you’re really interested in a girl and want to make sure you become more than just a casual hook-up, then you’ll want to invite the girl on an actual date.

When it comes to planning a date know that you’re in the driver’s seat.  You’re the one putting out the invitation, so planning the logistics (where you’ll go, how long it’ll last, what you’ll do) is up to you.

Perhaps the most important thing to figure out for a first date is what you’ll be doing.  The key is to pick a fun activity that you’ll both enjoy.  This way you won’t feel all that pressure of having to keep each other stimulated through conversation.  Bowling, mini golf, or even checking out a museum can make for a more interesting date than just sipping on beer at a bar.  To find fun date ideas, check out the local/college newspaper and see what kind of festivals or activities are going on around campus and in your town (for more dating tips check out this article on first date advice).
