Going Greek isn’t for everyone, and it definitely takes dedication and time if one wants to be involved in his or her chapter.In inter-Greek dating, it is likely that both partners have great leadership skills, want to contribute to the community, have high life goals and, of course, enjoy the party scene.
There also are many opportunities to hang out as couple, whether it’s at Greek events, socials or formals.
Frat boys gossip just as much — and maybe even more than — sorority girls, so be prepared for everyone to know the latest drama and every bump in the road during the relationship.
If youre in the mood for fast food (dating a non-Greek), you really dont care if you go to Mc Donalds, Burger King, or Wendys, because chances are, its a five dollar meal and it wont be the only time this week or month youll go out for fast food.

“Greek life in general can be pretty gossipy because it’s such a tight knit community,” he said.
