Stanford dating scene
You’ve probably heard this all before, but I’ll start by saying that the dating scene at Stanford is pretty freaking lame.
It often seems that there are only two types of couples here: the casual hook-up-buddies and the might-as-well-be-married lovebirds.
However, in the first film, the two are seen kissing at a New Year's Eve party, and later on in the sequel they get married.
Dan and Margo lived three doors down from each other in Florence Moore Hall.
I speak from personal experience when I say that this failure to engage in a bit of cautious exploration can have heartbreaking consequences down the line, when you find out that you don’t actually know how you feel about each other.(Before I go any further, I’d like to point out that there are (at least to my knowledge) plenty of successful couples with strong relationships who started out this way.
Some, of course, are the product of long mutual interest and grow out of developed friendships.
But I still think that these “next-level” hookups contribute to the demise of the dating scene.
In "The Real Me", Charlotte tries to set Anthony up with Stanford.
Anthony snubs Stanford, which results in resentment and competition ensues for the entire show run.
