The Typical Moments Of Dating In College, As Told by Drake Gifs

Every college student can relate to the expert on relationships and heartbreak himself.

Dating in college is a strange and mysterious thing, and Drake, as we all know, is the expert on relationships and heartbreak. Keep reading to see how much you relate to Drake in your college relationships.

1. Meeting People

While the general expectation is that you’ll meet people at college parties, the truth is parties are not the best place. With the loud music and dancing, everyone will be too preoccupied with having a good time with their friends to spend their nights looking for potential soulmates. You are more likely to meet people at other social events.

2. Online Dating

We all get to this stage at some point. Whether you want a serious relationship, a fling, or a best friend (this is offered by BumbleBFF for all of you who want to find some more friends, because no one can ever have enough friends), or just make an account as a joke with your best friend at 2am and end up going on as a way to pass your free time, you will eventually get to your Tinder/Bumble phase. And when you do, just remember not to have any shame. The use of these apps has become increasingly common.

3. Drunk Texting

You can either be the drunk texter or the drunk text receiver, but either way, you know there will be regrets in the morning.

4. The 2 AM Text

Didn’t anyone ever tell you nothing good ever happens after 2 AM? Okay, I stole that quote from a How I Met Your Mother episode, but there is some validity to the point. Only memorable situations occur after 2 AM. And when you get a text at 2:35 AM from that guy you’ve been thinking was really cute, just know what you’re getting yourself into. Because we all know what the text means.

5. Time Management

College is definitely very busy. With every student encouraged to join multiple clubs, jobs, and internships, while maintaining a social life and a high GPA, it can definitely be hard to find the time to be in any sort of romantic relationship on top of that.

6. You “don’t like him”

Not many people want to be in a serious relationship in college. When you start catching feelings for someone, you already know all of the complicated entanglements it will bring. So, you convince yourself you do not have feelings. But everyone knows you feel differently.

7. Dating

You finally give in, because you can’t believe how much you like the guy. I mean, is he serious? He must have the best looks, the best personality, and the best brains to attract someone like you. Just know you’re both broke college students, so most of your time spent together will most likely be spent in each other’s dorms.

8. After the Breakup

Dating in college is especially hard, because even when you leave campus to go to your home, most likely you are still on campus, or at least very close by. Chances are you will constantly be running into your ex, causing the both of you to take considerable means to avoid each other at all costs, or pretending everything is perfect when you do finally interact with each other. You will also, unfortunately, have a first-hand seat to each other's dating excursions.

9. Celebrity Crushes

Everyone has their celebrity crushes, and going to college is not going to change that. If anything, living and being on campus increases the chance of seeing your celebrity crush. In the three months, I have been at USC, I have already encountered Josh Peck, David Dobrik, and Liza Koshy. Zac Efron visited USC a couple of days ago. Though I did not get to meet him, my childhood crush on him was revived and I am extremely jealous of everyone that did run into him at the gym.

10. Girl Talk

Everyone needs their best friend to lean their shoulder on, and to rant about their boy problems too. And that definitely does not change during college. If anything, it increases, because the boys seem to be even more confusing than ever. You’ll find yourself face timing your best friends from different universities just to tell them about that one cute guy, or a cute date. Or you spam your best friend and run to meet her to recount every cute person you saw that day. Either way, they help you to realize how amazing you are, single or in a relationship. Appreciate yourself and embrace your personality.

Just Because I Check My Boyfriend's Location Every Hour Doesn't Make Me A 'Psycho Girlfriend'

No, checking his location every hour does not make me psycho.

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for a few months now. He has come up with describing my actions sometimes as “psycho girlfriend.” As much as this bothered me at first I started to realize there is nothing wrong with my “psycho” actions.

I don’t monitor who my boyfriend hangs out with and I don’t care who he texts, I trust him, but I do watch other things he does.

I probably check his location about once an hour, maybe more if he isn’t texting me back.

This isn’t some way for me to find out if he is with another girl, it’s so I can ensure he isn’t dead in a ditch somewhere. If he was on Snapchat five minutes ago but hasn’t texted me back in 45 minutes, yeah I’ll call him out on it but I'm not actually mad. If he is with friends and not answering me, it’s cool. I just want to be able to make sure I know where he is and that he is alive on a regular basis.

I make him keep his read receipts on for me.

I don’t care if he leaves me on read, I just need to know he is seeing what I’m saying. Half the time, I text him random facts or thoughts I have throughout my day, those don’t always need a response back. However, I do want to know he is acknowledging me through reading my texts.

Yes, from time to time I will spam him and make him respond to my messages so we can make plans or I can know what he is doing with his day but it’s not like I plan out his every move for him or care if he is getting drunk with the boys on a Wednesday, not my issue.

I don’t ask for all of his time or anything. I know he is a busy person. All I ask for him to text me back on a regular basis (once an hour to be exact), for him to allow for me to know where he is at all times and to get one night a week with him.

I don’t plan to show up where he is or anything, I simply just like to know information and get a weekly time with him. I don’t care if I only see him that one night a week, I just want one night with a movie or dinner or snuggles so I can get my boyfriend time.

The rest of the time he is his own person, and I couldn’t really care less about what he does in that time.

Poetry On Odyssey: Last Thing On My Mind When The Sun Shines

There's a new sherriff in town....

I think of you

when the sun does not shine;

when I close my eyes;

I see us.

when the sun shines,

I feel nervous.

when I open my eyes;

immediately blind;

you did nothing;

I did nothing;

you speak;

I listen.

it becomes something;

I speak;

you listen.

It is something;

you ask;

I answer;

I question;

you retort.

we are back to nothing;

all I want;

is for you on board;

not asking why


I cannot help you

If you help me;

nor can I help myself;

no, I don't want your help;

I learned more;

and need more.

You learned;

and earned

my trust.

I trust you;

you trust me;

so, that's that.

do not give me that crap,

I will see you;

when my vision

is complete.

when your help

becomes a need.

when my help

can make you see.

but, for now,

don't ask why,

or how;

because I still have yet to figure it out.

you may even know

all the answers

that have not yet been told.

please go ahead and scold;

just know,

there's nothing I can do;

when I don't love you;

you're always going to wonder,

and keep trying,

but, baby, I am not lying.

I love you, yeah.

but, you're not meant for me.

sure, I'll be there for you,

If you will be, too;

nothing should be news.

The sun will rise,

And one day,

I'll let you know if it shines,

Or if it still blinds.

For now,

Get your head out of the clouds,

and please just understand
