I'm over a year out of college, and some of my closest friends are girls I roomed with freshman year.
My freshman year boyfriend, on the other hand, rarely even crosses my mind.
I spoke to five women who've been there about their thoughts on dating in college, why it can be so difficult, and whether the possibility of finding what and who you want is worth all the struggle. Dating in college was so hard because it was like experimenting in a petri dish.
But then being young and not knowing what you want inevitably gets in the way.
