The Three "H's"
When meeting new people on campus, always make sure that you follow the three "H's" rule. But what exactly are the three "H's"? In case you are wondering it's nothing too complex. The concept is quite simple whenever you come across a familiar face always stop by to say hi, hello or hey. It might not seem to be of any importance and might as well appear as something quite stupid. But this habit will be quite beneficial in the long run, it will help you connect with new people, make friends with friends of friends. And as you meet new people you might also come across the person you feel is your other half. And before you go on to make the bold move of approaching the person with your thought you will have a chance to know them as friend and have a chance at knowing if the feeling is mutual.
Don't go on dating in the first few weeks
No matter how cute or handsome the boy or the girl next to you might seem never go on to date someone in the first few weeks of college. It might seem tempting for sure but it's for your own good that you give the thought some time. When you start college you are in new place, a new city, making new friends, give yourself some time to get to know the people around you. Before you go on to give someone the special spot in your life it is important that you give both the person and yourself a chance to know each other. Once you are assured that you know the person well and they are perfect for you only then make the move of giving that person that special spot in your life.
