Well, and what further?
The college bar is risky in the same way dating apps are risky in grad school - you'll probably run into your students doing body shots on a high top and honestly, there's very little chance of saving the date after that. With college bars off-limits and fancier restaurants a little out of your teaching assistant's budget, coffee shops and more laid-back lounges are the go-to date spots in grad school.
Honestly, any chance just to get off campus would probably qualify as a date. Apart from avoiding your students by heading to a coffee shop, you'll actually be able to hear your date and enjoy their company somewhere more low-key. Even if you go straight from college to grad school, you'll notice right away that things are a little different.
Academically, you'll want to dedicate more time and effort to your work. Socially, you'll find yourself surrounded by similarly intellectual people who are passionate about the same subjects that you are.
So start a bath for them, plop something fancy into the water, grab them some wine and their favorite book and leave them alone for an hour or join if they're into it.This 18 Year Old Girl is Dating a 68 Year Old Man
