They say friendships develop over common interests, but they also develop out of common endeavors and mentalities. Emily and I have had a lot of engaging and thoughtful conversations recently, and we thought we would take to our writing to share our perspectives with you all. We have realized many of the issues related to dating in our senior year of college, and we wanted to clearly define the emotional limbo that many of us experience. Both seniors graduating this May, we have found ourselves caught between the idea of lifestyle independence and emotional dependence. We feel like we are not alone in these thoughts so we wanted to start the conversation among our fellow seniors.
