7 Stereotypes Of A Christian College Girl
Whole Magazine

Calling yourself a Christian girl can either impress and relieve the parents of your boyfriend, or it can bring peers to have quick judgments. Although being a "Christian girl" is a good thing, extremes can be made, whether it's on the positive or negative side, that can raise eyebrows and often not be true. Let's embrace the fact that we are Christian college girls and show the world that all of these stereotypes aren't true!

1. We are "goodie-goodies"

Of course, we may seem like the perfect package on the outside: good grades, good hearts, simply "good." But the reality is, we are just like everyone else! We don't always get straight A's, we don't make it to every single class (because if you ask a college student, then that's nearly impossible) and we don't have an idea of ourselves as the "good girls."

2. Ring before spring

Love is in the air! Yes, it is real; no, not for everyone! Just because it happens more frequently at Christian colleges, doesn't mean that every boy who holds a door open will be flagged down by a girl because she has decided he's the one for her! But boys, if y'all are lucky, then you might just find your perfect girl!

3. We don't have fun

We have so much fun! We might not be having the same fun as other public universities, but we have a blast. The connections and adventures that God takes us on are incredible and we can't thank anyone but Him for these! Yes, we might just love going to chapel, praying with our friends and spending time worshiping, but all of that can be so fun too!

4. We are judgmental

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F17%2F6362291027883254451371568745_judgemental-aug26.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=747&h=4fe4e4b576de866c545bbec0003a80499c68d5899f30b3d267a64124131d52c4&size=980x&c=4001995823 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F17%252F6362291027883254451371568745_judgemental-aug26.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D747%26h%3D4fe4e4b576de866c545bbec0003a80499c68d5899f30b3d267a64124131d52c4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4001995823%22%7D" expand=1]

So I'm assuming if you believe this one, then you've probably had a run in with a judgmental Christian and for that -- I'm sorry. We aren't all that way! We are all learning of God's love for us so we can love others, but please don't judge all of us because of that one person who wasn't perfect because I don't think you are either.

6. "Hipster"

Okay, so here's the thing: we aren't all worship arts wanna be hipster girls! Granted you'll see a lot of Christian girls (especially bloggers!) who are into super hipster clothes, worship music, and aesthetically pleasing Instagrams. But what's wrong with that?! Granted, I wish I could pull off the hipster look of denim, beanies, and boots but I will always be a worship arts wannabe girl since I don't quite pull off that look as well as every other girl! But girls, don't feel like you have to have this trendy look to fit in, God wants you to be unique!

7. We adore coffee

This is absolutely (not for everyone, but still) true! Coffee dates are the best place for sharing our lives together, going on a date, and even just a place to journal (while getting the perfect setting to take an aesthetic picture for your Insta!) Not that everyone loves coffee but I promise, a nice cup of coffee will cheer up any day and be an awesome date!

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism
