The Truth About Dating A Car Guy

If you are dating a car guy, you know the struggle is all too real.

The Truth About Dating A Car Guy
Jason Avramis

The absolute apple of my boyfriend's eye is not me, as it should be; but his 2006 Volkswagen Golf GTI. He will dump thousands of dollars into his car without blinking and eye, but worry about the price of essential life items, He is a car guy through and through! It may be hard to understand for some people, but us ladies who are fortunate enough to love these guys know the struggle is all too real.

If you are dating a car guy, you will find that he will literally dump thousands of dollars into his car for what seems like no reason. I have always been under the impression that if it got you from one place to another without breaking down, it did not need to be fixed. T�o a car guy, there is always something new that can be added and made better than the original. This may upset you at some point, because time with you will be sacrificed. He will devote precious hours to installing a new car part. His days off will be spent in the garage, instead of with you. Plans you made months in advance will be sacrificed, because something came up with the car.

While he may dump thousands of dollars into his car, you may find him reluctant to take you out to a nice dinner or even buy you a piece of jewelry. You will become frustrated, blaming the car and all those fancy parts he spends tons of money on. You may even attempt to drop a hint or two about it, but eventually quit--realizing it falls on deaf ears. You will let it go, though and give him space; because it is his money and he can spend it on whatever he wants, even if it isn't you.

After all of the car shows, car parts, and constant talk about cars, you will eventually learn to love the car as much as him. You will learn to enjoy your time spent in the garage with him and maybe even learn a few impressive things yourself. Eventually, you won't even blink an eye when he comes home from the auto parts store, grinning ear to ear, holding his thousand dollar receipt. You may find you love him more, because of his undying obsession with this incredible piece of machinery and his unwavering desire to get his hands dirty. You may also find he loves you more, because you can now share in his passion--rather than standing in the way of it. All of your sacrifices will be worth it, once you realize what an amazing man you have and that he indeed does love you more than his car...although it doesn't seem like it.

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.
