“10 Useful Lessons College Taught Us About Life and Work” by Adam Star for Inside Tech says, “college is about starting over, leaving your comfort zone, redefining your environment, learning new skills, meeting new people, and building new relationships.
But you can deal with a break up if you are the dumper or the dumpee with grace and class, all without having to transfer to another college. It was awesome while it lasted—your college relationship, that is.
But now that the romance has ended, recovering from the heartbreak may be proving a bit challenging.
But dating in college is a whole other ball of wax.
It can be challenging enough to move beyond a past relationship, but coping with a break up, where you are likely to run into the ex in the dorm or simply walking to class, takes the process to the next level.
Break ups in life are inevitable, but learning how to cope, persevere and, ultimately, triumph is the best possible revenge.
It is a new skill that will serve you well way beyond your four years of higher education.
It may not be easy, but if you can learn to roll with the break-up punches, it may make other big changes later in life, both good and bad (i.e., moving to a new city, getting laid off), just a bit easier to handle.
Plus, you don’t want the reputation as the crazy one, which will keep you from ever getting into another relationship.
There are many life lessons to be learned in college—and coping with a break up is certainly an important one.
In addition to the increased odds of running into an ex on campus, one of the pitfalls of dating in college is how to keep it classy when you do break up.
Sure you may want to say bad things about your ex on Facebook or call them all the time, but in the end that sort of behavior will just make you look bad.
