There's this weird thing with college boys that as soon as a girl wants to know about you it means she is ready to put a ring on it. College is about finding and being yourself, right?! I mean that's how we all got in here, we have goals, and we achieve them, and that's what I love about college.
But I'm just not down to settle to be a side chick to someone's chemistry degree. I can't even decide what candy to buy at the movies, let alone deciding to be with someone for the rest of my life.
The survey findings were released today, during a forum to educate students about sexual assault prevention and survivor assistance at American University. National Dating Abuse Helpline and Break the Cycle Respond to the Urgent Need for Education In direct response to these new findings, a partnership between the National Dating Abuse Helpline and leading teen dating violence prevention organization, Break the Cycle, is launching an initiative to target college students with new, relevant resources to address the issue of dating abuse.
The expanded online content includes: Take Action (information on how students can get involved on their campus), Stay Safe (safety planning designed specifically for college students) and Help a Friend (information to assist bystanders).
A new survey reveals dating violence and abuse to be surprisingly more prevalent among college students than previously believed.
Nearly half of dating college women (43%) report having ever experienced violent or abusive dating behaviors, and more than one in five (22%) report actual physical abuse, sexual abuse or threats of physical violence.
"Why We Need To Start Dating Again," written by Eileen Curran back in May on The Odyssey, is an array of complaints about human behavior in the digital age.No one wants the commitment of a real relationship, but they don't want to be alone, either.A guy won't take the girl he's "talking to" on an actual date, but when he sees that her best friend on Snapchat is another guy, he freaks out. Snapchat and Instagram didn't exist in my age of flip phones on campus, but romance was still scarce.And plus, I live for the "Why can't you be a boy so we can get married" jokes to my best friend.Of course, I'd love to have a family of my own some day.
