5 Movies To Watch When Real Life Men Aren't Cutting It
Martin Lopez

Have you ever been so frustrated with that guy you're talking to because he's either ghosting you or is just trying to get in your pants? I feel you girl, and I have a solution. Sometimes we just need to escape the “real" guys and go to our fictional ones. While there PLENTY of good books and movies with strong, perfect men, here are my top five movies I would suggest you hit up when real life men aren't doing enough

1. Dumplin'

I am fully behind this movie because the message it gives it great. While many people aren't really a fan of Netflix original movies, I have to say this is in my top three of favorites. Also, it doesn't hurt that Luke Benward, the actor who plays the love interest of the protagonist (Willowdean), is gorgeous to look at. His character Bo is of course not to bad on the eyes, but his personality and how he treats Willowdean is what I (and many of my friends) want in a guy.

2. She's The Man

If you know me in real life, then you know this is one of my FAVORITE movies ever. Channing Tatum, of course, is a beautiful gift from God, and his acting is out of this world. His character Duke has to learn to like a person based on their personality instead of just liking them only on their looks. If you don't want that in a guy, I don't know what to say.

3. High School Musical

Honestly, looking back at this movie, it wasn't the greatest and gave me a false impression of what high school was going to be like. Saying all this, Troy Bolton was most definitely my first crush, even at the young age of six. I wanted a boyfriend who would encourage me and want to be with me, regardless of what everyone else was saying and going against the status quo.

4. Divergent

Although I was one of those who never read the books, I loved how Theo James played Four. He’s almost like the “bad boy”, and we all had a bad boy phase at some point.

5. The Last Song

If you didn’t like this movie growing up, you were doing it wrong, honey. My friends and I were OBSESSED with Liam Hemsworth after this movie His character, although he has flaws, is everything we wanted in a guy.

While there are several more movies I would suggest, these are the top five movies. Sometimes real life guys just aren't cutting it because of different situations, but at least Hollywood gives us the versions of guys we want.

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.

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.
