Dating 101 panel to offer tips
There is nothing more complicated in life than love. Relationships go through many different stages and everyone has different expectations and routines when it comes to dating.
Eastern Michigan University’s student organization I am P.I.N.K., which mainly works with female students in grades 9-12 from Detroit, will be tackling some of the issues and questions we face in the many stages of relationships during the event Dating 101. The event will be held Feb. 6 from 8-10 p.m. in room 301 of the Student Center.
I am P.I.N.K. President Misha Byrd said the event is free and open to the public.
“Students should attend Dating 101 because the program aims to give students a different look at love and relationships,” Byrd said.
Dating 101 is not just for females, and it isn’t meant to be gender specific, but more so directed towards our specific generation, Byrd said. So everyone seeking relationship and dating tips should consider attending it.
The event will be set up in a panel discussion format, ranging from single people to couples in the beginning stages of their relationship and all the way up to those pursuing marriage. The questions will come from the audience, who will have the opportunity to give their input on the questions as well.
Some of the topics that will be discussed include the differences between courting and dating, how to go about pursuing a serious relationship, things to look for, having standards for yourself as well as the person you’re interested in and many other things.
“We are aiming to have a specific couple that has been married a while, in attempts to gain a generation versus generation view on dating and courting,” Byrd said.
The idea for this came about because Byrd really wanted to have a discussion with students on EMU’s campus in regards to their views of dating. The ladies of I am P.I.N.K. contributed ideas and were really excited to put the program together.
If you are seeking some relationship advice or maybe you’re just curious about some things then stop by and check it out.
“Students interested to participate are advised to come with an open mind and of course an opinion,” Byrd said.
