Dating advice for women in college
On top of it, you might really connect with one of them.
Hooking up with one or two of your hallmates within the first few days of school, however, is a definite no-no.
Although it pains me to admit it, my college years are almost over.
But be warned: a regular hookup doesn’t mean professing your love for one another is the next step.My grandma once told me something that really stuck with me: “Women are fixers.We like to make things work, even when they were never meant to.” College girls, I’ve come to realize, are no exception. And just like you can’t put lipstick on a pig and expect a unicorn, you can’t fall for a douchebag and expect Prince Charming.We tend to push square pegs into round holes in the hopes of making something — and in most cases, someone — fit our expectations. Don’t be the girl that spends hours trying to convince herself that the guy who only calls at 1 a.m. Don’t be the girl that lets one text serve as proof that an inconsiderate guy is actually falling in love with her. There’s a tired trope when it comes to hookups, and it goes something like this: Guy pursues girl, guy convinces girl to give in, guy gets what he wants, and guy leaves girl to clean up the mess.But this narrative is horribly old-school and embarrassingly one-sided. Girls can want to play the relationship game fast and loose. If you have a guy that you’re having casual sex with, go for it.
