20 Things You Do When You Date a Fraternity Guy

All the annoying things you do when you fall for someone Greek.

It happens to the best of us, in a moment of weakness during a Phi Kappa Psi grab-a-date, you find yourself drawn to a handsome, hilarious and maybe a little raunchy individual. Maybe it’s the way he chugs his beer in 10 seconds without spilling any, like you’re prone to do. Maybe it’s the way he talks about his brothers as if he’s known them his whole life. Maybe it’s the way he looks in his newly embroidered American flag letters. Maybe it wasn’t any of those things, but let’s face it: you fell for a fraternity man, and now...

1. You suddenly have the same knowledge that all of the pledges do. The fraternity colors, how many founders there were, what year they were founded and where, and their famous fraternity slogan. You’d ace that pledge test, if you ever had the patience to actually take it.

2. You low-key don’t like the sororities his exes are in. Sorry not sorry. You’ll donate $5 to their philanthropy, though. For the children.

3. You only call his brothers by the nicknames they were given during pledging. Are you allowed to? Probably not. Even though Lemon Pledge is longer than their actual name.

4. You are always finding stuff to buy for him online. Does he really need flip flops, sunglasses, and a new backpack with his letters on them? Yes. Yes, he does.

5. You know all of the best, juicy gossip. Fraternity boyfriends don’t kiss other girls, but they sure do tell…so yes, you’ve probably heard about what a brother did last night, every single part in excruciating detail. And of course, you'll never tell.

6. You form your own sorority with the other frat girlfriends. It's not your fault that you all tell each other secrets when you get drunk at the house and your boyfriends are too busy playing beer pong. Sometimes you're closer to them than you are with your own sorority sisters.



7. You’ve already thought about how you’re going to ask him to formal. You don’t want to say that glitter, hot wings, and balloons won’t be involved, but they could be.

8. You get overly excited when their chapter meets milestones and wins awards. 2015 third place football champs four years in a row? Congratulations! Good work out there, boys!

9. You call his fraternity family by “Big,” “Little,” and “Gbig.” Okay, they’re not actually your Big, Little, or GBig, but they pretty much are. Although that could border on incestuous. Let’s not think about it too much.

10. You’ve started to actually like beer. Obviously vodka is still the first choice here, but you realized that it’s cheaper to drink the beer cans at the frat house than it is to go out and get a mixed drink. It may even be healthier. Who knows.

11. You walk into the frat house and your wifi automatically connects. Sometimes you’re there hours before the party and end up doing your homework, sending important emails, and sending snapchats.

12. You visit their fraternity house at another school. You wish your Greek Row was like theirs, or that you even had a Greek Row. #smallschoolproblems

13. You talk to anyone you see in public if they’re wearing his fraternity letters. Wait they’re a Phi Kappa Psi? Your boyfriend is a Phi Kappa Psi!! LIVE EVER DIE NEVER, BRO. (Also, props if he's a celebrity and you can make him do a hand sign. Famous frat boys are everything.)

14. You set up your sorority sisters on blind dates with his brothers. No date to formal? Don’t worry! It’s like their own personal version of the Bachelorette!

15. You know how to get into the frat house without a key. This is both helpful when sneaking both in and out of the frat house. Although, most of the time, the front door is unlocked anyway.

16. You get really defensive of your territory at the fraternity parties. Those girls are here? Who invited them? They only want to show up, drink all the alcohol, and leave. Ugh.

17. You’ve become a cooler painting expert. Sand, prime, paint, seal, booze, repeat. The best part? Making his other brothers jealous of your masterpiece.

18. You’ve been running a campaign for sweetheart, pledge mom, and unofficial house mom for months. They'll vote for you because you'll make them cookies for meeting, bring them booze when they run out, and because you love all of them. Also, America. Do it for America.

19. You hint that you want a Lavalier with his letters for the upcoming holiday. You hate wearing jewelry. Wait, there’s jewelry with his letters on it? And it's sparkly? YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT.

20. Even when you’re alumna from your sorority, you’re always coming back and visiting. You better still be invited to the next Spring formal. #sorrynotsorry


So, really, we're not that annoying. Our behavior is justified; our boyfriend is awesome, and his organization is awesome. But don't get me started on my sorority sisters.

Alex Smith And The Great Coincidence

Alex Smith's injury gave Joe Theismann the replay he wished to never see on November 18th.

If you are any sort of sports fan or strong relationship with one, you may have witnessed what now seems to be an unrealistic repeat of history. November 18th, 2018- exactly 33 years after Joe Theismann's great injury-to the day, Alex Smith's leg snapped and Joe Theismann witnessed the replay he never wished to see.

A major family movie in my home growing up was The Blind Side. At the beginning of the movie is the famous tackle of Lawrence Taylor towards Theismann. This play has always stuck out as one that no one wishes to see again. The thoughts afterward are scary regarding your career and family members can only be worrisome.

This possible life-changing play has more than just the date in similarities. Both Theismann and Smith were taken down at the 40-yard line. Not only that, but the final score of both games ended out 23-21. This incident may be the one to convince you that history finds a way to repeat itself even when it's an unnatural occurrence. To add to the similarities, both quarterbacks finished their seasons with 301 attempts.

Theismann's injury occurred at a point in time when technology was still advancing and learning more ways to improve recoveries. In 2018, technology has reached advancement and athletic training specialists have expressed they hope to get Smith on a path where his football career may not be put to an abrupt stop.

At the moment, details of the injury are as follows. Smith broke his tibia and fibula, but because of the bone breaking through the skin, he also suffered a spiral fracture in his leg. Although Smith is predicted to be sidelined six – eight months, Dr. David Chao, who was previously the team doctor for the Chargers, does not see this injury as being career-ending.

The six – eight months off for recovery could bring frustration and hard-times, but also come reap some benefits. Taking time away from a passion within your life can be difficult but with it also allows for more time with those who love you support you. His wife and two sons will have more opportunity to spend with their father and their home life can help had positivity to this hardship.

I hope for a smooth and graceful recovery to Smith and pray technology has improved enough to get him back on the field if that is what he desires.

I also hope history stops repeating itself and keeps accidents in the past, to remain in the past.
