College Dating

Everyone told you that college would be a goldmine of hotties, dating, and sex. But maybe it hasn’t quite met your expectations in the dating department. Perhaps you want to widen your dating network to look outside of your own school or maybe you’re interested in signing up for college dating sites and apps because you crave a real connection with someone at your school. Meeting people IRL just hasn’t been doing it for you. Although social media means it’s easy to find out about events, it still hasn’t been easy to find what you’re looking for. DatePerfect can help. Scroll down to discover how to get the most out of online dating for college students. More >>

You love the freedom that college offers when it comes to your major, the courses you’re taking, and the people you socialize with (and, duh, the whole no parents thing). But you also want to make sure that you’re taking the time to get the most out of college dating.

In other words?

Now is the time to test the waters.

If you’re not in a frat or a sorority, it can sometimes be hard to figure out how you’re supposed to meet people. Singing up with dating sites for college students can help fill in the gaps in your social life.

In some cases, you may have trouble meeting the people you’re looking for because you just don’t have the time to go out. Between your part-time job, working on your thesis, and meeting with your advisors, (and trying to find time to actually get some sleep), it can feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to add dating into the mix.

But hear us out.

College dating sites and apps can help you find what you’ve been searching for, no matter what it is.

Perhaps you just haven’t been able to find someone on campus who can keep up with you and want to expand your options.

Or it could be that you’ve gotten the hard partying out of your system and you’re starting to think about dating sites for college students to help you meet someone who wants to transition to the next phase of life together.

Maybe you’re no longer a college student (and haven’t been for a couple of decades) but you’re interested in dating younger people or other singles who share your school pride. You find that their energy is contagious and you love reminiscing about the college years (not to mention telling your favorite college stories or explaining how you got the nickname “double butter.”) Plus, college-aged singles are always up for trying something new, fun, and exciting — and you’d be lying if you said they didn’t make you feel young again.

No matter what you’re looking for or your experience with dating in general, we can help. DatePerfect has the lowdown on the best dating apps for college students. Whether you want to find love by graduation day, have a sexy spring break fling, or just take full advantage of your college years, we have you covered.
