Even if you do study for a couple hours, the conversation will eventually become more casual, you'll both be more relaxed, and it won't be long before you're studying each other. In grad school: Unfortunately, in grad school, a study date is a study date — no matter how badly you'd like to swipe all the papers off the desk and get busy.It's not because grad students are boring or have lower sex drives or anything like that.
This is probably an unpopular opinion but I enjoyed grad school way more than I did college.

In my program, a B was equivalent to an F and anything below that meant automatic expulsion.

Grad school reading assignments are exhaustive (hundreds of pages per class every week) and final papers can often be well over 30 pages long so winging it is out of the question.In addition to your weekly work load, you spend a lot of time traveling to academic conferences and submitting your work for publication — both tasks that require an extraordinary amount of prep time.For those students interested in careers in academia, presenting at national conferences and publishing a certain number of peer-reviewed articles before graduation are crucial to their professional advancement.The first is that you'll be swiping through professors who might be teaching your classes or whom you might be working closely with on a research project.Either way, it's sure to leave a queasy feeling in your stomach that'll make you question whether or not you really need to be on dating apps at all.As a grad student, you're in a different phase of your adult life.You're most likely in charge of all of your finances now, you probably have fewer roommates, and hopefully, you're more inclined to do your laundry yourself rather than taking it all home for your mom. Change is scary but I can confirm that Cheetos will remain one of your main food groups so you can at least take comfort in that.In college: Once you've turned 21, the drinks date is fairly standard in college.You probably have a list of local bars with the best happy hours saved on your phone and you've already figured out the best route to walk back to your apartment if you have too much to drink.In grad school: This all seems a lot less appealing once you get to grad school.Presumably, your age preferences in grad school widen a bit leaving you open to a couple risks.
