Pros and cons of dating in college
If people constantly surround themselves with their fellow sorority or fraternity friends, they may be less willing to explore other options.
Non-Greeks can be refreshing and enlightening, and can introduce people to another world beyond designer heels, lettered tanks, sticky beer-battered floors and fist pumping keg stands.
When I first started my college journey, I remember a number of freshmen who were committed to maintaining a long-distance relationship.
At that time, I couldn't understand why a couple would willingly go through such a struggle.
While the connection was still present, it had waned to a point where it was barely recognizable to what it had once been.
It was a difficult decision to make, but it ended up being the right one for us.
Many of the couples I came to know had gone to high school together, and so they were used to seeing each other on a pretty regular basis.
Because of long-distance difficulties, we both felt as though the relationship wasn't at the level it needed to be at.
Whether it’s out of spite or pure drunkenness, people can find themselves in sticky situations.
“I know girls who’ve had sex or made out with an ex’s frat brother just to get back at him,” said Renee Leap, a sophomore at Cal State Fullerton.
Greek life can be one incestuous mess, as it is common for people to hook up with the same fraternity brother or sorority sister.
Though that is inevitable, things can get complicated if someone else from one’s sorority or fraternity hooks up with an ex they still have feelings for.
