No dating zone in campus

”Everyone has their dating comfort zone: a collection of wants and needs that, when met, minimize the angst and pressures that come from dating," Chris Armstrong, relationship coach and owner of Maze of Love, tells Bustle.For instance, I was in denial about having a type but I realized that my “type” or “comfort zone” are guys that are tall, lightskin/brownskin, “pretty boy” but in the sense of being able to dress.
