College is a time to explore relationships and the kind of people we want to share them with. It’s also a time to figure out what you want, and sometimes committing can be more than your “better half” has to offer.
But now is the time to figure it out. This conversation can go one of two ways: You could get what you want or you don’t. I know. This can seem incredible intimidating. I mean, who isn’t terrified of rejection? But it’ll be worth it in the end. Regardless, the future you get is what you want later on.
Unfortunately, a lot of us become complacent in relationships, especially when we don’t know how to introduce the other person to our friends or we aren’t sure what kind of public display of affection (PDA) is acceptable.
If your significant other admits his or her undying love for you, welcome to Cloud Nine; you just found yourself entering a Facebook-official relationship. But if it’s the opposite, don’t fret. You can’t go into this thinking it will be a relationship-ender.
If it doesn’t work out, think of the time you could have wasted with this person and the door you just opened toward finding the person who really does want to commit to you.
Just remember: Life’s only beginning for us y’all, especially right now. Live it fully, and if the time isn’t right, live it single.
