Double Dating In College Is Double The Fun

Spending time with other couples gives us the opportunity to learn and grow from and with other couples and build upon our skills and strengthen our weaknesses as a couple.

Double dating is a common way of hanging out and has existed for many years. Oftentimes, it is difficult for individuals to balance between seeing friends and their significant others.

Fortunately, double dating allows for individuals in relationships to simultaneously partake in both activities and to kill two birds with one stone. Double dating may consist of a quick meal or movie, but it may also span across a whole day or turn into a whole night or overnight experience.

I have participated in many different types of double dates, and I am glad to be able to interact in something out of our norm with my boyfriend. Spending time with other couples gives us the opportunity to learn and grow from and with other couples and build upon our skills and strengthen our weaknesses as a couple.

We prove to ourselves that we are able to function well as a cohesive unit within a small group. Typically, double dating means that one significant other has a friend or family member who is also dating and who merges with said couple.

I have recently been spending ample time with my boyfriend and his close friend and his girlfriend. We are a thoughtful and energetic quartet, and it has been interesting to further understand my boyfriend's dynamic with his dear friend as his girlfriend and I observe.

I have met his girlfriend only within the past few months, and it is nice to have someone to be with as our boyfriends bond. I am glad that I have been introduced to a new friendship as my boyfriend further sharpens his by creating memories with his pal.

My boyfriend and I have double-dated with this couple of several occasions. We visited his friend and his girlfriend at their university and slept over as well as walked around a mall and journeyed on a one-night beach trip extravaganza. I look forward to embarking on more double date adventures!

My boyfriend and I have been dating for nearly four years, and while it may be for the best, we have witnessed several couples terminate their relationship. Therefore, some of those who we double dated with are no longer in our lives in the same way.

However, I feel grateful for our current double date squad. It is tricky to ensure that all members of the one giant date are content and getting along, and the boyfriends and/or girlfriends who are still getting to know one another should hopefully feel comfortable with one another over time.

Relationships cannot be forced, but double dating and spending quality time with both new and old friends is how friendships blossom!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
