Ladies, It's Time to Start Dating Like Guys

Why guys have it right in the dating department.

Ladies, It's Time to Start Dating Like Guys

Disclaimer: I am in no way saying that every girl or guy acts this way. I am making a generalization based on personal experiences and encounters.

If there is one piece of advice I always give my friends, is to be a girl but date like a guy. Now I know this may be a little confusing, but let me break this down for you. Here are a few, "common" guy dating habits.

1. Talking to more than one girl.

Before people start blowing up in the comments section, I am talking about the very early stages of a relationship. For the most part, when a girl meets a guy she really likes, he becomes her main focus. She already starts planning out all the cute dates they're going to go on (pumpkin picking in the Fall, a picnic in the Spring, etc.) and she suddenly shuts out every other guy. Now, I hate to break it to you, but most guys aren't doing the same. Sure, they may like you, but they're still keeping their options open. While there is nothing wrong with focusing on one guy, don't put your blinders on after only two dates.

2. Having "Guy Time."

When girls enter a new relationship, he tends to become their whole world. They want to take cute pictures with him and check out new restaurants, and this is fine, until you start sacrificing yourself to do things with/for him. I think every girl can relate to being ditched by her friend for her boyfriend, or having him tag along to dinner with you. Guys make "bro time" and "me time" a priority, and you should to. If you're laying in bed watching a Lifetime movie and your news guy hits you up, don't feel bad saying no if you're perfectly content how you are.

3. Not overanalyzing every little thing.

"It's been 17 minutes and he hasn't answered my text, but he viewed my Snapchat Story 13 minutes ago. Does he not like me anymore?" Does this sound familiar? I can guarantee that every female who lives on planet earth has thought this before. We are all guilty of it, but it's so silly. Why are we letting ourselves get stressed out about this? If a guy likes you, he will let you know, plain and simple. They don't play games, they're not taking longer to answer to "appear mysterious" if he's ignoring your text he's not interested. Move on and find somebody who does, because you're freakin' awesome!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
