The 5 Men You'll Definitely Meet At Parties

The 5 Men You'll Definitely Meet At Any Party won't like 'em, but you can't avoid 'em.


Strobe lights, sweat, skimpily clad women, bad DJs, and alcohol--five of the six mainstay ingredients you're invariably exposed to at any college party.

The sixth is, of course, grimy men. They come in all shapes and sizes, skin colors and ethnicities, temperaments and approaches. The only thing they resemble each other in is their unfailing ability to make your skin crawl. Here are 5 men that you'll definitely meet if you attend a party in college.

The One That Follows You Around

He seems to creep up on you and your friends when you least expect it--and once he's next to you, he lingers like a shadow. You do your best to ignore him and push him out of your circle, but he somehow always manages to get back in. Even if you move your crew to an entirely new place within the crowd, you aren't safe from him for long--it feels like he has superhuman powers that let him sniff you out and find his way back to you. My advice? Confront this guy directly and tell him to leave you alone! His stalker-y habits are creepy and shouldn't go unchecked.

The One Whose Waaaay Too Drunk

He's laughing, he's dancing, he's rumblin' and tumblin', he's....throwing up? This dude has swallowed half a bottle of blue raspberry Svedka before the party even starts. He's presumably there for a good time, but he's so drunk that he's not quite sure whether he's having fun or not. Beware of this guy: while his concentrated blood-alcohol content might make him more affable, it also increases the likelihood that he projectile vomits all over your dress. And who wants that??

The One Whose Only Goal Is To Dance With Every Girl

There are usually multiple of these guys wandering around a party. The DJ is playing your jam, you're feelin' yourself, you're gettin' down, and suddenly you feel a pair of sweaty male hands on your waist. Whether you choose to dance with him or push him away, you can be sure that those same hands will be on another girl's hips the moment you're done. Throughout the party, you'll catch glimpses of this guy prowling around for his next victim when he isn't with one of several different women. Not that you fault him for trying to dance with as many girls as he can, but still...ew.

The One Whose "tOo CoOL" To Dance

When you ask him his favorite book, he says "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." Not that he's actually read it, but he feels like the title is appropriate for his self-imposed "background" role. He's too tired, or too bored, or too ~over~ the party scene to dance ( and yet he's still at Now he's waiting for some curious woman to engage him in conversation so he can explain how cool he is. He thinks he's the biggest fish in all the land, and wonders why girls never notice him. "It's because I'm on the wall," he decides, "and only a worthy and observant woman will find me." So justifying himself, he returns to irrelevancy.

The One Whose Trying To Find His Wife

This guy must have money, because the moment he meets you he seems ready to put a diamond ring on it....But not really. He just wants your number and your name--which you stupidly give to him, though you know you shouldn't--so he can follow up your guys' single dance with a lukewarm "Hey." This guy doesn't seem to understand that a dance is just a dance--or maybe he doesn't want to understand it, because feeling like he's getting attention from some girl is better than accepting that he doesn't know much about relationships. Eventually, he will get tired of your half-assed responses to his advances--or maybe you'll reject him altogether--and he will tell you that you shouldn't have given him your number if you didn't plan to entertain him. You'll be rightfully angry, and will vow not to give men at parties your number, which is probably for the best.

How Happiness In A Relationship Is So Important

What is the happiness and love that we as individuals deserve when it comes to our relationship?


It's different for each of us. Some prefer being showered in gifts, being showed off on social media, bragged about to family and friends. But, what is the one thing that all of those have in common?

That would be the unmistakable amount of love your significant other has for you, that they will do anything to show you that they love you unconditionally. We all show our love for one another in various ways. I for one love being shown the love someone else has for me in small things they do.

It could be a simple 'good morning love' text message or even just a hug out of the blue. Knowing that someone cares so deeply about you is one of life's greatest gifts. Knowing that another human being loves you and wants to be with you, it makes us drunk off of love and our heads float up to the stars.

However, when we don't feel that love, that connection, that reassurance from our significant other that they love and care for us back, it can be an extremely overwhelming and a lonely feeling.

We start looking for those feelings and connections elsewhere. In our friends for reassurance if we look good or blowing up their phones for attention.

We start caring about if other people find us attractive or not, we relish in compliments that other people give us. We start looking for that happiness elsewhere. It's not because you stop loving your significant other or stop caring about them, but we as humans need to feel important and like we are needed by another person.

When you stop letting your significant other know how much you care about them or showcasing your love for them, even if it's a simple gesture like holding their hand or holding the door open for them, they will begin to look elsewhere.

Now I am in no way saying that they will cheat on you, but your relationship and their attitude and feelings towards you will never be the same until you start showing them how much they mean to you just as much as they do for you. I don't condone cheaters or staying in a relationship that you are not happy in.

Yes, some relationships go through hard times like distance or a traumatic event. However, the way I see it is if you entered into the relationship, to begin with, you obviously cared about that person a lot and if they show you that they care and love you for the person you are and your past then they deserve the same in return from you.

Relationships are not always easy, they take time, determination, communication, compromise, and love to stay afloat. If one of you isn't willing to give your all and put forth the effort needed then it will never work. A relationship can't be successful if it is only one-sided.

Despite peoples life's being busy on a day to day basis, you need to always find time for your significant other. Because at the end of the day when things hit the fan, your significant other should be the one that will be there no matter what and always be by your side.

All in all, you need to treat each other the way in which you would want to be treated in a relationship and treat them the way they should be treated despite whatever chaos is going on in the world about you. Love is the conquer of all and should never be thrown around or not taken seriously.

Loving someone else is a gift we are given by God and never taken lightly.

You Know You're From Trumbull, CT When...

The best memories are made in this boring, little, Connecticut town.


1. The majority of places you will consider to eat at are in Fairfield or Westport... Colony, Shake Shack, Country Cow, Playa Bowls, BarTaco

2. But if you find yourself too lazy to get on 95 for food, Panchero's is the go-to... never Chipotle. If it is past midnight, the choice always comes down to the McDonalds in Monroe, where you are almost guaranteed to see a group of people you know, or Merritt Canteen.

3. Once you got your license, your Friday night plans consisted of picking up friends, driving up and down Main Street, and, somehow, always finding yourself at the THS parking lot seeing who's car is there because there is nothing better to do.

4. In the Fall, you couldn't wait for Friday so that after school you and half of your grade could walk to Plasko's Farm for ice cream and apple cider donuts... and hope you could get them before the owners would yell at you to leave. (This one only applies to Hillcrest Middle School kids, AKA the inferior middle school in town).

5. You couldn't wait to be a senior so you could officially lead the BLACK HOLE at football games... if you were even willing to go in the cold.

6. You looked forward to the annual Senior Scav, the last week of summer before your senior year where a list of tasks is passed down by the recently graduated class... the official kickoff to senior year.

7. You pass by Country Club Rd. and get flashbacks from the worst Cross Country practices ever. Driving up Daniels Farm Rd. in the Fall and Spring, you are conditioned to yell "hi" out the window to your friends at practice.

8. You knew someone who worked at Gene's gas station... and found yourself spending more time there on the weekends than you would like to admit.

9. You are convinced Melon-heads are real after frequenting Velvet St. to see the abandoned insane asylum with your friends, IF you didn't want to drive all the way up to Fairfield Hills in Newtown.

10. You have had/have been to at least one middle school birthday party at the Trumbull Marriott.

11. You know that the 25mph speed limit on Whitney Ave. is way too slow... and can't help but hit a little air going down the huge hill at the top.

12. The guy at Towne likely knows your name.

13. You never find yourself turning right out of THS... that side of town is irrelevant for those who do not live there.

14. You know to avoid the Merrit Parkway from 4:00-7:00pm at all costs.

15. You know more than you would like to about people you aren't even friends with... in a town so small, things get around very quick.

16. Going shopping really means going to Target, or any store in the mall, for the millionth time that week.

17. The marching band was the best in the state and you would see them practicing, literally, every time you drove by THS.

19. Depending on the side of town you lived, you spent a lot of time at Five Pennies Park or Indian Ledge Park.

20. You would say you couldn't wait to leave, but when you got to college, you find yourself excited to come back to your hometown so you can reminisce on old traditions and make new memories.
