Should We Encourage Courtship on Campus?
Should We Encourage Courtship on Campus?There is much disagreement over whether it is a curse or a blessing upon campus students to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. Some people maintain that this kind of relation is meaningless, other people, however, argue that courtship is a valuable part of their college life. It is true that courtship provides some benefits, but we may fail to afford such expensive affair, especially for boys.


Doubtless to say, a girlfriend or boyfriend may boost you up on some occasions. If you were not in love, perhaps you will attend lectures shock-headed. But things won’t happen when you fall in love with someone. You are inclined to make yourself look the best to appeal to the certain person. At the same time, you will work hard to make sure that you are the one who deserves his or her love, the one he or she can spend the time with, the right one who he or she is looking for. In addition, this relationship helps you cope with the others. Since most of us are the only child in our family, we may be lacking in capability to deal with other people, especially the opposite sex, though we do not hope so. Courtship may help one develop such skill and answers the longing for having a relationship with the opposite sex.

Although I am aware of the advantages courtship on campus provides, I insist that the disadvantages far outweigh them. As far as I concern it is over costly, especially for boys. No matter where we are, we could be in China, in Japan, in American, in Vietnam, in Congo, in Russia, if we want to be a gentleman we should always offer to pay. That is, to a large extent, a burden on campus students. It really bothers me. When I was in love, I was often in a pinch in the middle of the month. If you were a girl, this may not the case. In addition, single is simple, double may cause trouble. There are occasions when we drink in staying alone and doing nothing but fancying. But if you were not single, this seems to be a luxury for you. Furthermore, the statistics show that most couples will part when they graduate. Their college lives come to an end, their relations come to an end, their connection comes to an end. What’s worse, the one with a lover is more likely to ignore the sincere friendship on campus. Would they reject accepting her or his invitation to see a movie and get together with their roommates? They may prefer to be with their sweethearts other than their mates.

In conclusion, I believe that the disadvantages of the courtship on campus are more obvious than its advantages not only because we may fail to cope with the troublesome at times but also because the cost is too high for us, especially for boys. Therefore, as a boy, I don’t think we should encourage courtship on campus.
