Dating someone on your floor in college
Your safest bet for a partner is a peer—someone on your own organizational level, says Chory.And while dating someone above you on the corporate ladder is often against the rules anyway, it bears repetition: Don’t date the boss.
Build off of that friendship: “If it’s someone at work, you need to come pretty far in the platonic part of the relationship before it turns romantic,” says Bartell.If you go into the college dating pool with some advice, you're less likely to get hurt.Here are a few examples of the guys you probably won't want to get serious with. Sure, it might be convenient to live a floor or two apart, but if it's not a match made in heaven, little things like doing your laundry will suddenly become a nerve-wracking task. (Pro tip: Just don't use bleach.) Also, if you see him bring another girl to the dorm, your jealousy meter might go off the charts. Speaking of booze, many freshmen seem to find an upperclassman who'll buy them a bottle of alcohol, no questions asked.But if you’re not friendly IRL, don’t start firing off friend requests—that’s creepy.Don’t question any colleagues about someone’s relationship status unless you want to come off as creepy.
