College is a great time in a guy’s life, but it’s also an astoundingly bad time to have a relationship. Most relationships a guy enters in college will fail, and it’s mostly because you’re too busy with classes to take proper care of her. So, say you have a girlfriend, and you really want to keep her? How do you shuffle between school, homework, a job, a girlfriend, and still get to sleep? Well, it isn’t easy, but it can be done. It just takes a lot of planning and willingness to keep to a set schedule to ensure that you have enough time for everything.
Even though you might want to keep your girlfriend more than anything, schoolwork should come first. After all, your degree can influence what kind of job you get after school, which will define your entire life. Before you plan for anything else, make sure that you have time set aside to do your homework and attend classes. Your girlfriend won’t want to stay with you if you failed and had to drop out of your classes, even if you did spend that time with her. If she’s in college, too, a good way to spend time with her is to plan small study parties. She can help you study, and (if you have an apartment or a chill dorm), she can even stay the night afterwards. Working with your girlfriend will make the studying process more enjoyable, and will help you in your classes while helping her feel like she’s getting to spend a lot of time with you. if you have her sleep over, it also lets you get a good amount of sleep while still being with her.
If she isn’t in school with you, or if she demands that you should have special time for her, work it into your schedule. This might seem impossible when you’re a full time student and are working a job on the side, but you can do it. Write down all of your obligations every week, and make a schedule of what times you do all of these things. Make sure to block out time for sleeping, but in the free moments, make some time to spend with her. It’ll keep her from getting bored with you and leaving, and you’ll still be able to get everything done that you need to.
Making time for a girlfriend when you’re busy with college is too hard for most guys, but you aren’t like most guys, are you? That’s right, you can be a total superhero and juggle all of your obligations while making her the happiest girl in the world. If you want to keep a girlfriend through school, you have to do everything by a schedule. If she feels neglected, she’s going to move on to another guy who can take better care of her. Don’t lose her; it’s hard to keep her, but it’s not something you can’t do if you just try.
