There is no way I’m going to sit around and wait for stuff to develop and progress between me and some dude.
I’ve spent all of college pining for a relationship, but I don’t think it’s what I really want or need at the moment if I’m being entirely honest with myself.
With respect to seniors, Sherman says, “I can't think of a better time in college to explore a hook-up than right before graduation (sort of like meeting someone while on a trip abroad, knowing you'll never see them again! But there is still the life experience and emotional maturity to consider, and some seniors will have more or less of that than others.
I do think that the more time a student has spent in a college setting (or simply living life), the more conscious they'll be of what they might be getting themselves into.” Having become familiar with campus after a few years, a single girl is better able to gauge which guys are players, which guys are looking for something more serious, and at which parties and in which situations it is best to hook-up.
For those freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who need convincing one way or another on this topic, here is a handy-dandy pros and cons list for hooking up with a senior right now: Pro: It’s as low-commitment as it could be. Awkward eye contact in the Blue Room after some mediocre sex? Accidentally running into that rando you DFMO-ed at Campus Dance in the Mail Room next fall? Embarrassed because you made an ass of yourself in the pursuit of hooking up with someone? They seem so sexy and mature and mysterious even though they are probably just as clueless about life as we are So what about you?
