Never tend to be a charlatan, pretentious or fake. When you are dating a person of your age then never challenge the mindset of the person by showing your fake behavior, false personality as the person can figure that out very easily. When it is that easy for you to pretend then it is easier for the other person to detect. 

It is good to love a person with your honest heart and be who you are. Let the person love the original and actual you and enjoy the essence of togetherness.

4. Do not dare to ignore your friends and mates, just because you are in a relationship

Undoubtedly you will be undergoing a beautiful experience of dating a person chosen by your heart but that doesn’t mean that all the previous relationships like your friends and family are supposed to be ignored. They don’t deserve to be avoided, you should know how to maintain a  balance between the relationships you are stepping in and relationships you are into. 

If your partner themselves tell you to ignore your parents or siblings just to stay in their contact 24/7, then better drop the relationship then and there. It is better to be alone and single than being with someone who controls you! This is quite evident for those who are dating in college for the first time and end up with the wrong person!

5. Stop Expecting luxury dates

Money is a crucial matter when you are a college student as we have friends and other personal expenditure to manage too(check out these money saving tips). So never demand luxury dates all the time, having a date in a five-star restaurant or a lounge should not be the only way to define your relationship.

Also remember, never bring money exchange in your relationships, if you guys ever share money amongst each other always believe in returning back so that money is never a reason for your fights. The reason I am sharing this is that I have seen good relationships parting ways because of money. So be cautious especially if you are dating in college!

6. Be an Intact Partner

When you initiate a relationship with someone, decide to stay firm in it and try and give you 100 percent into making it successful and long-lasting. It is never a good gesture to date multiple people at the same time. Two girls at a time or two boys simultaneously should not be your idea of dating. 

Stay committed to just one person who your heart chooses. 

7. Understand each other, never underestimate or take the other person for granted

Never underestimate your partner publically or even personally. He/She is your girlfriend/ boyfriend and they deserve your respect then only your friends and family will give them respect. Relationships all about reciprocation.
