College Relationships

Relationships in college are tricky, since the parties involved are typically are young and straight out of high school.

These individuals are energetic, explorative, careless, spontaneous, and emotional.

Students in this category can often find themselves in relationships on upon entry to campus. As expected, many are nervous on what is asked from and expected of them. In many cases young students put overwhelming amounts pressure on themselves. It is advisable to seek out help and advice from experienced and older people when one is in such a relationship. This is because most of the individuals in these kind of relationships are young people with little experience in this aspect of life. As much as one is expected to be actively participative in the relationship, there are limits in that respect.

Emotional attachment is the most common issue in college relationships; it may be translated as being clingy if it is too much and being hurtful if it is too little. The partners in a relationship will need to moderate their show of affection, but are expected to limit their attachment to their companion. According to Essay Kitchen – as much as people in a relationship need to be close, it is unnecessary to show excessive affection, possession, jealousy and attachment.

One can expect the relationships to have greater emotional comfort.

Often, issues regarding freedom affect college relationships, since most college men are straight out of high school, they are away from their parents watch and it can be expected that they want to try out new things. The adventures with their partners will cover sleepovers, late nights out, and one should anticipate other  happenings involving intimacy. One would expect that the partners would offer each other adequate breathing space, and still be spontaneous, sensitive and adventurous.

It is, therefore, important for partners in any relationship to be realistic, committed and show maturity in handling each other since after all – it is just college.
