The Six People You Date In College

Because Valentine's Day is around the corner.

The Six People You Date In College

So Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. I started to ponder the stories I have heard about dating. Me, not really having a lot of dating history to recall, had to turn to a few friends to tell me about their experiences. Many of us girls will encounter these men while we date in college. You have a wide spectrum of bachelors whether you go to a big school of 50,000 students or a small school like Pepperdine with about 3,000. It doesn’t matter. These men exist everywhere.

1. The dog

This is your typical “I’m-only-taking-you-out-to-dinner-and-letting-you-get-lobster-in-order-to-get-into-your-pants-later” type of guy. He will hold a nice conversation and make you feel great –– until he comes out with a comment, which will make some girls cringe. It may not be on the first date that he does this, but he is almost always going back to his guy friends saying “who he scored with last night” even if it may not have happened exactly. Ugh. Men.

2. Bashful

Then you have your self-conscious guy. He is one of the sweetest people you have ever met –– if and when he opens up. It takes him a while, but it’s totally OK because you understand how hard it is sometimes. Bashful also makes you feel great. He tells you how beautiful you are and says how lucky he is to have scored someone like you. You basically have this one wrapped around your finger, but then he comes out with something like this, “do you think I’m fat?” or “why does X get so many more girls than I do?” And you’re just sitting there thinking, "and I’m here why?"

3. The jock

Probably one of the most popular ones to go for as a college girl (*guilty*). They’re athletic, fun and they know how girls work (for the most part). But one thing you will find with the jock is 96.45 peace t of the time they’re talking about their sport, the difficulty of practice, their teammates, their coaches, etc. But it’s OK because you love them (and their body).

4. The frat star

Because of what has been stated above about the jock, there tends to be a rivalry (or more of a jealousy from the frat star's side) between the jock and the frat star. He is always down to have a good time and party, while also hating on the athletes. He loves his Vineyard Vines and Polo. But sometimes you may find that he prioritizes his “frat bros” more than you.

5. The “Alberto”

And then you have your amore; your classic Alberto from Spain, your Jacques from France, your Paolo from Italy or your Bumbi from Tunisia. Every girl has dreamt of that one foreigner that will sweep her off of her feet, off of the American soil that she’s standing on and into a foreign land. You may not understand anything that he’s saying at all. You’re just nodding your head and laughing every once in awhile to make sure he knows you’re still interested. His beauty (or maybe just the sheer fact that he’s no classic American Bob) is enough for you. Ay que bella.

6. The one true Valentine (since I love bacon)

Some may get super lucky with this one. They find him. Everything just feels so right. He’s not just taking you out to get into your pants, and he’s not so self conscious that you start to worry about whether you are the actual girl in the relationship. He also isn’t loving his sport or his frat more than you, and you can most certainly understand his language. Nothing about the date, or any of the dates, are fake or forced. You find yourself just going with the flow and being your weird self, but he ends up falling even harder for you because of that. You become each other’s other halves. He’s your taco to your margarita. One isn’t nearly as good without the other. Everything about him and the date just feels so right. He becomes the one true Valentine.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
