Dating for Graduate Students

How to overcome the challenges of dating as a graduate student

As a graduate student, in addition to the ‘normal’ set dating challenges, you are also likely facing another set of unique challenges. These may include that you see and interact with the same set of people in class and on campus every day and, depending on your program of study, there may be a significant gender imbalance making it even more difficult to meet someone. If you are in the dissertation stage of school, your experience can be very isolating with little opportunity to meet new people. On top of all this, you may not even know where you’ll be living after graduation. Given this unique set of challenges, the team at Catch22 has a few suggestions to help make sure you stay on the right track.

1)   Get involved in on-campus activities outside your department

  • Dating within your department can pose its own set of risks and challenges. In many situations, these people are essentially colleagues that you need to have healthy working relationships with. While dating another grad student can be great, we believe going outside your program of study will a) be less risky and b) give you a bigger pool of potential dates to choose from. We believe that getting involved in interdepartmental on-campus activities is the best and most natural way to meet these people. Try intramural sporting leagues or other hobby clubs. You’re likely to have a lot of fun regardless!

2)   Explore the city outside campus

  • While grab school can be a wonderful and life-changing experience, it can also sometimes be insular and isolating. It’s at those times that getting off campus and breaking out of the ‘bubble’ is so important. Try that new bar or restaurant with a friend or maybe just try studying at a new coffee shop. Getting outside of campus every now and then can be therapeutic in and of itself but can also give you the perfect opportunity to meet new people.

3)   Be open to joining an online dating site

  • Joining an online dating site makes a lot of sense for busy graduate students. Firstly, you get instant access to numerous eligible girls or guys. Second, matches tailored to your needs are delivered straight to your inbox on an ongoing basis without having to lift a finger. Third, online dating profiles can let you quickly and efficiently filter down to what you are looking for.
  • Catch22Dating is an ideal site for graduate students looking for other high-quality singles. At Catch22, you know that every match is educated, high-caliber and verified. Further, Catch22 allows you to customize your privacy settings including hiding your profile from classmates or specific people if you choose to do so.
