The 12 Couples You Will Meet at University

During your time at school you'll meet all of these couples, so here's your handy guide to the kind of relationships that always happen on campus.

University is a great place to meet people, and during your time there you'll meet plenty of people who end up hooking up, breaking up, or just creating drama on campus. During your time at school you'll meet all of these couples, so here's your handy guide to the kind of relationships that always happen on campus.

1. The long distance couple

You'll actually only ever meet one half of this couple, as the other is away at another university. The person you do meet will always be attached to their phone, whether they're texting, phoning, or Skyping with their sweetheart. It's going to be difficult to ever get their attention as they're always pining over their phone.

2. The high school sweethearts

This is the couple that made sure to go to the same university, so they would avoid being the long distance couple. They go to the same classes, share the same dorms, and go to all the same parties. This can either signal a relationship built to last forever, or a dramatic blow-up somewhere down the line.

3. The romantic couple

These two have already planned their whole lives together. Kelli Ables, a College advisor at Huffington Post comments: “They're engaged, or soon to be engaged, and already know the names of the children they don't have yet. They're on a different wavelength to you, and that's ok.”

4. The PDA couple

This couple are so in love, and they want everyone to know about it. They hang around in public constantly, making out and staring into each other's eyes. Let's not talk about the noises coming from next door when you're in your dorm. Invest in ear plugs.

5. The power couple

This couple make you feel slightly inadequate, thanks to their perfect grades and their commitment to studying. If they're in the same class, they'll be competing against each other to do the best. You're sure that at least one of them is going to be president someday.

6. The couch potatoes

No matter how hard you try, you're never going to get this couple off their sofa to hang out with you. “They only ever leave the room to get more snacks or go to class, and there's nothing you can do about it. If there's something new on Netflix, you're just not going to see them for a few days”, - says Arlene Perez, an Intern at Paper Fellows.

7. The on again, off again couple

This couple should have their own reality show, the way they fight. They're forever breaking up and telling everyone how awful the other person is, and then publicly making back up at every opportunity.

8. The freshman hook-up couple

This couple found each other at the beginning of college and have been inseparable since. They may not last long out of college, but you know they're going to have a whale of a time while it lasts.

9. The best dressed couple

This couple regularly wear clothes that you were looking at in the store, wondering if you could pull them off. They make anything look amazing, and never come to class looking less than fabulous.

10. The keep fit enthusiast couple

This couple can always be found in the campus gym, helping each other with their workouts. If they're not there, they're cheering each other on in their chosen sports. “Either way, it may be best to stay out of the gym when they're there, as they can make you feel rather inadequate”, - shares Michael Peebles, an Educator at Academized.

11. The party couple

If there's a party happening, these guys are going to be there. They're always the centre of attention, ready to try something new and get the party started. You know that these two are the reigning champions of keg stands and beer pong.

12. The new roommate couple

You were a roommate with one half of this couple, but now their beloved has been encroaching on your territory. They're sleeping on your couch, drinking your milk, and most importantly, not paying rent.

These are the most common couple types you'll find at your university, but there are sure to be many more. Maybe you recognise your relationship in this list. Now you know what you're looking for, you know how to deal with any couple that comes your way.

6 Important Must Knows For Dating Sassy And Sarcastic Girls

Brace yourselves boys, she's a tough one.

Dating a girl with a big personality can be tricky. They are some of the most amazing girls but to keep them, one needs to understand them. Here are six important things you must be aware of before you give your heart to a sassy and sarcastic girl.

1. Stubborn

She is going to be the most stubborn creature you will ever meet. I say "creature" because she might actually scare you with how much she refuses to back down until you have full proof she is wrong. And if you can’t prove her wrong, just suck up your pride and let her be right or she’ll never quit. But just remember that she’s simply passionate about whatever it is and you should be proud of her for that.

2. Bluntness

She is going to be blunt. So be prepared to hear the truth. She isn’t going to care how mad you get, if you’re being rude, she won’t be afraid to put you in your place. If your choice of clothing isn’t matching, she’ll tell you. Whatever it is, she isn’t going to keep the truth from you. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes she’s just a little too straightforward.

3. Sensitivity

Be careful sometimes with your choice of words. Though she is blunt, she is also sensitive. Her sarcastic personality is sometimes just a defense mechanism because she fears opening up. She worries a lot and continues to ponder the things you say. Remind her she is loved.

4. Friends

She is going to have a lot more guy friends than she will have girl friends. Why? Because guys tend to find more humor in her sarcasm and don’t take it so personal, whereas other girls take it as she’s being serious and just rude. However, don’t be jealous because trust me, you’re 100 percent hers and those guy friends are just that — friends.

5. Insults

She’s not going to flirt with you by giggling and blushing and calling you cute. She’s going to call you an idiot and smack you across the shoulder or back because to her, that’s easier than being all giddy and speechless over how much she likes you. And even when she’s calling you names, which really is in all fun and games, she doesn’t mean it seriously, she’s actually just saying “I love you” in her own special language.

6. Shorty

If she’s short in addition to being sassy and sarcastic, you’re in for a big treat with her. She is not only going to be full of fast wit, but she is going to have so much spunk in her you won’t know what to do. She will be so feisty that she won’t be afraid of anything or anyone and you yourself won’t even know how to handle her. That’s what makes her special.

It takes a certain type of person to be able to give their heart to someone who can so easily break it with their strong headed personality. But a sarcastic and sassy girl is going to be the one girl who is going to love you with all that she has. Treat her right, and she’ll treat you right.

To The Friend I Rarely See Anymore

I wish you nothing but the best.


When we graduated high school, we thought it was the end for us. The distance would ruin us and we wouldn't be able to call ourselves friends. Thankfully, you were my rock for the first year of school. You were the one I turned to when the adjustment was hard or when I needed someone to talk to and just listen. We never lost our connection for a whole year. We proved that nothing could pull us apart no matter how far the distance, no matter the different schedules. We were still best friends.

Another summer came and we only got stronger. We went on countless beach trips, late night hangouts, and Starbucks runs. I didn't even think it was possible to be this much closer to you than we already were. If we weren't together, we would Snapchat or text to never stop the conversation.

Now summer ended, we didn't think twice about losing our connection this time. We had a bond stronger than anyone could fathom. We once again went our separate ways and kept our texting and Snapchat habits.

But something changed.

It must've been the comfort level of sophomore year. It must've been all the new friends we got. It must have been the boys who entered our lives. We don't speak anymore. I haven't seen you since winter break. I haven't texted you since New Year's Eve. Our connection, one that was once thought to be indestructible, came crumbling down with sophomore year. I am not going to lie, sophomore year was the best of my life, but I knew you were missing the whole time. It wasn't the same without you.

I'm not upset you chose to focus your time and life on your new boyfriend. I am happy for you. I am not upset you spend more time with your school friends. I am happy for you. I am not upset you don't text me anymore and killed our streak. I know you're living a happy life. And I am too.

We may have gone our separate ways like we never imagined, but I am happy you are finally happy. Don't forget for one second that I will always be here for you. I will still always answer your text. I will still always be your shoulder to cry on even when no one else is there for you. I wish you nothing but the best, and I hope you're doing ok.
