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.

Personally I also want to date guys that are a bit more mature, which is hard to find in high school, not that it's much better in college.
However, I think it will be easier since college is definitely bigger and since the age group is older, there is a slightly greater ratio of mature guys. High-school dating year is fine, considering the nature of most high school relationships.
