7 Things You Should Know Before Dating Someone In Law School


Thought Catalog

1. When you fight, you will never win.

Give up arguing with a law student because he or she will not back down (arguing is practically their job). They will challenge you until they are blue in the face…even if you are obviously correct. Thus, be emotionally ready because they will find some defamation of your character or numerous evidentiary examples of why they are clearly winning the argument. In the end just accept the fact—they are always right.

2. They will dictate all preferred times and methods of communication.

If you can’t be flexible on how you keep in contact with your significant other in law school then quit while you’re ahead. You need to know that you will not stay awake until the wee hours of the night talking about your dreams and goals until one of you falls asleep. If you’re lucky, 10 minutes on the phone…

How To Be In Charge Of Your Own Happiness

Thought Catalog

One of the many new responsibilities that comes with adulthood is being in charge of your own happiness. Your mom isn’t around anymore to notice when you’re not smiling as much, to put your hair behind your ear and offer to make you a sandwich. She’ll be there to support you, as your friends will, when the going really gets tough. But they all have their own lives, and they can’t sit on the phone forever.

That we matter.

Our decisions have to mean something too. The ways we choose to spend our days must be impactful. Whether it’s that mother who gave up the VP position to stay home with her kids…
