Don't Cry Over Toxic Boys

Casual college dating doesn't always work out.

Don't Cry Over Toxic Boys
RPM Ministries

We all have that one guy that got away. Everything seemed perfect until all of the suddenly fell apart. You don’t know why but it just did so you resort to drinking too much vodka and bawling your eyes out while your friends try to take you home before you make a bigger scene at the party.

At first he was your typical frat guy, you met him at his frat house, and never took him seriously. You both were a little too drunk and everything seemed like a good idea. You exchanged numbers and he really tried. He texted you and genuinely seemed interested in everything you had to say. You started to like him, but you told yourself you were a “cool girl” and were in college now, so feelings did not exist. But he made himself into your everyday life.

You gave him the world, shared your special, secret dorm snacks and honestly cared for his academic standing; to the point of staying up correcting papers together. You were best friends at one point and he opened up to you about things he would never tell his brothers. Nothing could go wrong for you guys, your friends loved him and started to trust in him. He was so much more than just the letters on his sweater, but instead he was a decent human being and you loved to have him around.

Of course, you did realize it was just college and no one wants to get stuck in a relationship, so you were cool with the whole casual dating thing. You settled for cute coffee dates, going on smoking walks and talking about your days. “Hanging out” meant getting drunk off cheap liquor, oversharing and then the occasional sloppy making out which resulted in him spending the night.

One night, during oversharing, he opened up about his ex-girlfriend. He swore he was over her, things ended bad and that he hadn’t had any communication with her since the school year started. You trusted him, because why not.

And then…

Your girlfriends text you that they just saw him with another girl on campus. But who?! He doesn't speak to any other girls; he’s always with you. When does he have time?

It hits you.

It’s his ex-girlfriend. He brought her all the way out from wherever she goes to school. You don’t know what to do. You feel betrayed, lied to, cheated on. You decide that showing up to his frat house party that weekend seems like a good idea until you see them together and next thing you know someone is pouring shots of tequila into your mouth in the middle of the dance floor.

You wake up to random text messages the next morning and no bra.

You realize that maybe you’re not ready to get "wifed" up. Especially not guys like that, frat guys (not saying that all frat boys are the same, but some do end up falling into the stereotypes), but it’s OK because you’re in college and you still need to get your life together and do tons of biology homework before you can worry about crying over random boys that were toxic anyway.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
