Life is always crazy and especially in college when you're away from home or your friends are away from home, it can be easy to lose touch.

A great way to stay in touch with friends, especially when you're apart, or just busy, is to text or call them whenever they cross your mind. It can be about a tv show you just discovered and want them to watch or just to tell them you appreciate them and hope they're doing well.

Whatever the message, checking in whenever they cross your mind will definitely help you stay better connected!

2. Be kind

You never really know what a person is going through at any given time, even your closest friends.

Be kind to your friends and check in on them. Life is hard and it's even harder when you feel alone. Let your friends know you have their back!

3. Remember, you are not alone

Remember, you are never truly alone. There are so many people out there that care about you. You just need to reach out!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
