" This can mean being more open to dating those of different races, religions and backgrounds.
It can also mean never needing to go out with someone just because you want to rebel or prove something to your parents.
You're finally going to be able to move beyond the pool of guys or girls you've known since fourth grade.
The downside to this is starting from scratch with people you know nothing about, but this also opens up exciting new possibilities.
Depending on the size of your college, there could be several hundred times as many students as at your high school, which translates into several hundred times the potential dates.
If you're still with the guy or girl you met in high school then kudos.

I want to first point out that by dated I mean we literally just went on a couple of dates. Prior to this little fling, I had a crush on this guy for a solid five years, an unwavering crush that I just could not let go of.

This went on for four years and he never gave me the time of day.
