College success and dating

It's a kind of field test to weigh the pros and cons and suggests why emerging adults during this time have multiple relationships, according to Romantic Relationships in Emerging Adulthood, a book by a Florida State University professor, Frank D.Fincham, who studies marriage and partnership with a focus in social psychology.The next four years will be some of the best and most significant of your life.

Weber calls this model a "shared identity" -- meaning each partner is their own person, but they're open and willing to share and compromise for the sake of the union.

There's a sense of maturity that goes along with this commitment.

“I believe that a healthy relationship is super beneficial emotionally and personally, if you find the right person,” said junior Kenya Lofton.

Congrats on your acceptance to Insert Here University!

You can also refuse to choose, and just rep the single life.

Regardless, the unique partnerships (or lack thereof) you choose during this time will affect how you date for the rest of your life.And when it all works out, cheers to them on their happily ever after and for never having to endure a terrible Tinder date.But even when your romantic partner stays the same, change happens in and around you all the time.Whether I am at the Hayden Library, Starbucks or just traveling to class I am overwhelmed with the abundant sight of couples flooding the ASU community.I started wondering if they are better off than the single population on campus — does dating make for a better four years?So when it comes to seeking companionship, the math works in your favor -- everyone you meet knows someone who knows the girl you like. And enjoy it while you can, because trust me: you're not set up for that kind of success in a New York City watering hole.
