How often have you heard that being single is the best way to enjoy your college life? That having a relationship will lower your grades or that you will eventually drift away from your friends?

If you think that most romantic relationships don’t last more than one semester because of different schedules or jealousy, that’s not true. Your relationship will get better if you want it to and if you both make an effort to do so.

There are actually some amazing benefits of having a healthy college relationship and we’ll talk about them below.

1. Study Help

When writing an essay or research paper, it can happen that you run out of ideas and can’t move forward. Or you can’t understand a subject and you need help from another person. You can easily rely on your partner and get essay assistance or brainstorm together for new ideas.

2. Your Personal Cheerleader

You face a lot of challenges during college and so you need someone’s support. Support from parents is good, but you won’t feel the full force of it from a distance. Your partner is the person who will always tell you that you can handle it, that “everything will be okay” and give you a hug after a hard day. After that, all your problems with essays, term papers, and exams won’t seem so serious.

3. Safety

Putting your partner down as an emergency contact person is as serious a step as living together or getting engaged. You will feel much safer and more secure knowing that you have someone to help you in a difficult situation. Moreover, both partners will see the mutual importance of their relationship.

4. Cohabitation

In college, you can live on campus and share your room with strangers or rent an apartment. By renting an apartment with your partner, and buying food in half, you can save a fair amount of money. You also won’t have to get used to living with new people if you don’t like it. Moreover, living together at this stage will either strengthen your relationship or show you that you are mismatched in the household.

5. New knowledge

Chances are your partner has a different major and you may find your benefits in that. During dating, you will tell each other about your fields and thereby share new knowledge. A college relationship will help you get interested in new things.

6. Networking 

There’s no doubt that you and your chosen one have different groups of friends. In fact, it is a great advantage for both of you. You’ll be able to make new and interesting acquaintances that might be useful to you. Having different networks will help you in your studies, in finding a job, etc.

7. Permanent best friend

Your partner is not only your lover but also your best friend. Friends change all the time in our lives because of moving to another city or other different reasons. Don’t worry if you lose friends when you go to university. You can do the same things with your partner: go to movies, go to parties, try new restaurants, or just walk in the park.

8. The Good Mood

If your partner has a great sense of humor, you’ve hit the jackpot! Let’s be honest, we can have a hard time at university, which is why it’s so important to have someone who can cheer you up and make you laugh at any given moment. Could it be a bad thing that you will be laughing all the time?

Final words

It’s up to you to decide whether to be in a relationship while you’re at university or to be single. You must evaluate the pros and cons and find a partner who shares your views and goals.¬†

Don’t forget that you need to be able to set boundaries between your education and your relationship so that one does not interfere with the other.
