Become exclusive dating
Dating after college is a much bigger commitment than dating on campus; it takes more time and effort to schedule a date and work out the logistics of seeing each other.If you aren’t that into someone, you simply won’t bother putting in the effort — it’s much easier to plan a wine-and-Netflix type night.Enjoyment and Excitement: The two of you like what y'all are doing―spending time together, sharing all the secrets, basically enjoying each other's company. Fulfillment: The satisfaction you get just by her presence, and vice versa.
More specifically, it takes an average of six dates to become exclusive and nine to call yourselves a couple, according to a Google Consumer Study conducted by Mic.
You can't believe how, after dating so many men who went absolutely nowhere and drove you downright batty, no red flags have arisen. When you're at the store, you pick up his favorite candy/soda/lemonade just because.
You don't even have to wonder about whether or not he'll be coming over sometime soon because you know he will. This is because making plans with him is incredibly easy. Even though you haven't known him that long, he's dropped hints about how impressive he's told his friends you are. You are no longer in a love/hate relationship with your phone.
Furthermore, Mic points out some studies have found that falling in love can take less than a second — my standard half hour isn’t even needed!
Though we aren’t given many details on the study’s participants, I would say that this type of dating behavior makes sense for those who have already graduated college and are building their adult lives.
