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.

10 Totally Weird But Totally Relatable Dating Deal-Breakers That Make Me Want To Swipe Left

They may be odd, but they make some sort of sense.

155

So . . . dating. The act of one person actively trying to find a mate. It's messy and awkward, but it can also be wonderful and lead to some snazzy wedding presents in the future.

Now, I'm no expert on the subject, but I like to think that, at 22-years-old, I know what I would like in a significant other. Even better than this, though, is knowing what I don't want. Process of elimination, you know, is a much easier way to go.

In making my list of "Don'ts," I realized that some of these, while strange, are pretty applicable when you think about it. Yeah, there are the obvious ones, like "doesn't like dogs" or "doesn't support my life goals" or "is a convicted serial killer," but I'm talking about the little things that you might not immediately think of but are irksome nevertheless.

1. They fold towels the wrong way

Giphy

A'ight, so I know it's a pretty "adult" point to start with, but there is a correct way to fold a towel. I know it, and if you don't know it, either ask me and never do it another way again or leave my presence forever.

It comes down to looking at the future. How are we supposed to have a home together if we don't share towel ideals? How will we raise the children?

2. They like kale

Giphy

Look, I'm all for being healthy, but I draw the line at kale. Kale is spinach's angry cousin who wasn't hugged enough as a child, and that's tons of emotional baggage that I don't want in my vegetables.

There's also a big difference with accepting kale and actually liking it. If you're like, "Yeah, I need some antioxidants in this smoothie, and it was on sale," feel free to hit me up. If you're making full-on salads with it, I'm afraid you cannot hit me up. Ever.

3. They won't duet "Baby, It's Cold Outside"

Giphy

Okay, so we don't have to be Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé level of duet. That's an ultra mega level of awesomeness that just has to stand alone.

However, I like to sing, and when I say, "like," I mean that 80 percent of my day is spent singing to some type of song. If you're not belting right along with me or at least giving me a standing ovation at the end of the song, then I'm going to have to ask you to leave the show, no refunds available.

4. They have no interaction with literature

Giphy

This might be a bit more personalized on my end, but I'm an English major. I legitimately want to teach the youth of America about the wonders of literature. It's one of my passions, and I'm definitely going to be talking about it quite often.

I get that reading isn't everyone's "thing." I'm not asking you to read the Odyssey, for Pete's sake. Choose something you're interested in. A medical journal, a comic book, an article about pants, whatever. Just prove to me that you're literate, and we'll get along swimmingly.

5. They hate board games

Giphy

Have you ever met a decent, good-hearted individual who has said, "I despise board games, they are the scum of the earth, and I rue the day they were invented," and meant it?

No. Because that person doesn't exist. Board games are pure and remind us of our childhoods.

Also, if iCarly taught me anything, I would never trust anyone who would use "rue" correctly anyway.

6. They criticize my driving skillz

Giphy

I'll admit that I drive like a crazy woman late for her parole meeting, I will. I have a tendency to swerve in and out of traffic and to speed more than my fair share.

However, just because my bad driving is an established fact doesn't mean that fact is up for commentary. Clench your jaw and grip your seatbelt like the rest of my passengers. I pinky promise we'll get to our destination quickly and with lots of adventure.

7. They don't laugh at dad jokes

Giphy

Dad jokes are funny, okay? They may be the "lowest form of humor," but I'm all about a stupid joke to get the giggles rolling.

If you can't laugh at a dad joke, either because it's legitimately funny or because it's legitimately the worst joke you've ever heard, what in the world can you laugh at?

8. They binge-watch The Home Shopping Network

Giphy

I'm a fan of watching TV. Whether it be a new, binge-worthy show or a movie I've seen seven billion times, it's a great bonding experience that I'm all for sharing with a significant other.

I absolutely draw the line at the Home Shopping Network. I cannot and will not binge-watch a slew of large gemstone rings and super-mega-ultra microwaves. I would watch a string of infomercials (go Flex Seal) before I would listen to Nora and Stacy tell me that I must have this wool sweater dress in navy blue and burnt umber.

9. They wear toe socks

Giphy

Picture this: You and your potential significant other have just returned to their place after dinner and are ready to relax. They walk in and kick off their shoes to reveal brightly colored toe socks.

Now, I'm not trying to dog someone's fashion choices, as I have some interesting quirks myself. But toe socks? TOE SOCKS!? I sincerely apologize, but I'd have to turn around and quickly exit before I started laughing in their face.

10. They don't support my late-night nugs runs

Giphy

As I may have mentioned once or twice, I'm a fan of McDonald's chicken nuggets. They're a supreme comfort food, and are good at any and all times of the day.

If you can't support my nugs runs, then I'm going to have to assume you don't approve of my self-care, and that's just not okay all around.

Which deal-breakers do you agree with?
