Girl friend in grad school??

Recommended Posts

Its just deviation from the standard adjusting-to-grad-school-and-ruthless-academic-life discussions....!!

This may sound a little embarrassing but I have never kissed a girl in my life,let alone having a girlfriend. I am already 22 years old. Things just haven't worked out for me. I didn't have any luck in college. Now I am heading to grad school this fall. It seems to me that it would be a lot harder to meet new people in grad school since you will no longer take classes with people from other departments (especially considering I am in engineering)and there aren't as many social activities for graduate students than for undergrads. So my question is can single guys find a girlfriend in grad school?

I'm getting a Master's in engineering and I know of two marriages that happened within my small department. I met my boyfriend when I was an undergrad, he is also an engineer. It can happen.

Kidding aside, some schools have many activities for graduate students too. We have coffee breaks a few times a week and BBQs every now and then, we go on trips together, watch movies... And if you want to meet more people, you could also do it outside the university (e.g. take a dance class, a photography course, a cooking class, whatever your hobbies are).

Here's another thread on this topic:
