If you went to a mixed school whiles growing up and dated someone in your class, you may have an idea of the reasons why you should never date your course mate. One would argue that things change as you grow but no, they don’t. In fact, the standards get higher, so high that the individual has to work twice as much to be him/herself. These are five reasons why you should never date your course mate.
1.Your business becomes everyone’s business. One moment someone is gossiping about you to him/her and another moment, someone is mocking you two. There will be no breathing space for you two; particularly if it is a class like a nursing or medicine, where everyone is in the same class for the whole day.
2. Any help you could have gotten from those who liked you becomes a thing of the past. This particularly applies to girls. Often than not, guys help girls out and unconsciously, the reason is to score points. However, knowing that you are taken in the class means that he is going to start seeing you as a buddy. Everyone gets to know you are taken and those who could have helped you with assignments etc turn to somewhere else.
3. Third reason has to do with trying to perfect your every move because of your partner. Your shudder, attitude and attentiveness in class become a checkpoint. There is not going to be a moment where you won’t have to stay alert. This puts a lot of stress on you. No matter how comfortable you get with your partner, the perfection when he/she is around is inevitable. It may not be acting in a perfect manner but acting in the ‘perfect’ way she/he knows you to be.
4. Break up is probably going to be the scariest of all. Having to see the once upon a time ‘bae’ everyday and knowing very well it is over is going to be irritating.
5. You think the break up is worse? Wait till he/she starts dating another person, another course-mate, maybe. You might have to deal with the most depressing moments in your life in class. This is particularly noticed when he/she acts so happy with this new person.
There you have it. You should never date a course mate. It helps you to be yourself at all times.
