It depends a lot on where you live after college (cities are much better for dating) and what you do outside work. Think of all the things that had to go right for me to be in that spot. Note: I did have many hook ups but they were either married woman (blah) or really young.There are so many ways to meet people that don’t involve going to bars. I was divorced after 20 years (to college girlfriend) and back into dating in my early 40s. I must be the only older guy not really interested in girls 20 years younger. I ended up with 12 years younger, so she matches my maturity level.And many people DO at some point settle down with someone, which to me shows it isn't impossible to date and meet people after graduating.
I’m a senior in college and will be graduating in May.
I recently got out of a 1.5 year relationship with a girl who I saw a future with, but unfortunately she fell out of love with me.
Or, whilst on the date, pick a subject that you’re enthusiastic about, such as a hobby.
She will sense your confidence as you talk passionately about it.
I have been told that I am amazing and an incredible boyfriend/person, but I am worried that finding a great girl after graduation will be difficult due to working a lot of hours (Engineering) and not being around tons of single girls.
I’m not one to go to bars/parties - mostly the gym and church.
I will try and reply to everyone when I have the time! In college, you get to know a bunch people passively. The difference is not between pre- and post-graduation.
the positive commenters mention exploring different hobbies and joining clubs and activity groups. You're thrown together through classes, frats, what-have-you anyway. The difference is between people who have learned to cultivate a social life that supports dating and those who have not.
All of my engineer friends who found someone while studying did so through hobbies. You'll need to find some social activity you like and make an effort to talk to people.
Hey man, I had a girlfriend from graduation till about last year. Don’t be afraid to go out on your own sometimes, get a shot or two in you first if it helps, and go make some friends. Adult sports leagues work pretty well, but I was lucky enough to find a group that also enjoyed hanging out for poker games, game nights, going out drinking, weekend trips, etc.
