To That Cute Boy I See On Campus But Never Talk To

What I really think when I pass by you.

To that cute boy I see on campus but never talk to,

So, you're super cute. When I see you, I basically fantasize on how I think your personality is. It's fun to me, it's like storytelling. I predict you're very charismatic... and I predict that you are polite to elders and aren't afraid to say hello to people you know. You walk looking up, but not with your nose in the air. Maybe you're social but you aren't the obnoxious type. One that doesn't attend every party and every happy hour. Someone that takes his studying seriously and may read a few books. A little bit of a loner, but a great friend to others. I imagine you're the perfect guy, and that's why I don't want to talk to you.

I fantasize what it would be like if we went out on a date.

If we went out on a date... boy I would rock your world. You would love our conversations and you'd laugh a few. I'm pretty much fantasizing you'd be the perfect date as well. We would joke around with each other, but I can take from you that you are an optimistic, whole heartedly human being who sees the good in everyone and isn't judgmental, isn't narcissistic and isn't looking for a good confidence boost from me. You would truly want to know about me and seem interested in the friendship we're creating.

I would hope you're the type of guy to have your phone on silent all day. The guy that never uses social media and never cares about getting attention from people. Someone that genuinely does good things for others without needing recognition for it. I imagine that you aren't super straight forward, and you believe in respect and are considerate of other people's feelings.

This is why I don't want to talk to you. I truly don't have time to be let down or play games. I don't have the patience to work on what I don't like about you, and I don't care enough to have something right now. Blame the other guys who have let me scream in my pillows in true frustration, or complaining nonstop to my girlfriends how much of a f*ck he is. I just don't care enough to invest in something other than focusing on myself, other than admiring you from afar.

But yeah, you're really cute.

All The Ways Long-Distance Is Worth It

They are not for weak, let me tell you that.

Long-distance relationships are not easy nor are they for the weak, but they are so rewarding. There is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing that person after it has been so long since you have last seen them. Whether it is a month or 6 months, nothing compares to the moment you lock eyes for the first time in a long time.

1. Nothing, I mean nothing, is better than finally getting a FaceTime date in after a few weeks.

Making time for those little FaceTime dates is the key to every long-distance relationship. You each have your own lives so it is the best feeling to finally find time to have a little "face-to-face" conversations.

2. Life moves on when they aren't there.

This was the hardest adjustment for me. Your significant other has a whole other life that you are not a part of because you don't live where he/she is. But, life does not care. It keeps on going even if you are not together.

3. Distance truly makes the heart grow fonder.

I know that is so cheesy, but there is no greater feeling than seeing him/her after an extended period of time (and when I say nothing, I literally mean nothing compares). There is just something about being back in their presence again that just makes the world go back together for the time you two are together. It is the BEST feeling and I know you all can agree with me on that.

4. They are not for the weak, let me tell ya.

Long-distance is not for everyone. It is so easy to argue with someone when you can't see their face. It is so easy to get mad at something you can't see for yourself because you have already envisioned how it must be. Y'all, it is so easy to just cover the bad day up and every struggle and act like it is all okay. Yet it also so easy to just let every issue and bad thing that day out on the other person and get so mad because they just don't understand. You just have to be strong, simple as that.

5. Catching up with life when you see each other is so fun.

This is my favorite part. It is like talking non-stop. So many happy conversations and sharing of memories with the other that just have to be explained in person.

6. Little things are the big things.

Like riding in the others car or singing along to the radio for two hours. Or simply eating at the fast food restaurant in town. Or just like sitting on the couch together literally makes you so happy.

To tie it all together, long-distance is beyond hard but is so worth it. Time with that person become preference because no one gets how much you miss them. It is hard to explain to your friends and sometimes you just miss them so much it hurts. Other days, it's easier because you are the only person you have to worry about because he/she is not in the town. It has its highs and has many lows, but nothing makes you want to truly quit and the highs always outweigh the lows.

You've Heard Of 'How To Be Single,' But Let's Talk About 'How To Be Romantic'

For some of us, it takes work to be cutesy and romantic.


Okay, I'm probably the least romantic person anyone has ever met. Not to say that I'm a bad girlfriend or that I'm not caring. I just find love in simple things like knowing what to order for them at restaurants, doing their laundry, planning unique dates, or cooking for them. It's not that I'm opposed to being arduous, I've just never been a chocolate and flowers kind of girl. I'm more of a Mongolian hot pot and "let's walk across the Brooklyn Bridge!" kind of girl. I appreciate some effort, tailoring something to fit a person's idiosyncratic personality or general spontaneity, not how flowery something looks. Not saying that I'm not feminine, I'm just my own entity, so to speak, and that translates into my love life. Needless to say, I thought I should learn how the other half lives, so I've challenged myself to take a course on being a classic/hopeless romantic just to understand how others think and who knows I might change some of my habits!

1. Leave notes

I think it's a really cute and simple idea that I will try to do because it makes everything very personal.

2. Write them a poem

I've had this done for me but I've never actually done it, because believe it or not, I didn't like to read or write poems up until this year.

3. Cuddling

Okay, so I'm not a cuddler, I have no idea why — it's more or less a personal space and attachment issue, I guess. I love hugs though! I guess I just have to be in the mood to cuddle and at times I can be. Other times it just makes me nervous.

4. Dedicate a song to them on the radio

It seems like the people on the radio that do this are crazy in love and honestly, to be able to have the ability to go on the radio and just declare your love for someone else is really inspiring.

5. Surprise them!

I personally cannot stand surprises, but I love to surprise other people and just be spontaneous, so I sort of do this already.

6. Carve your names into a tree

I've thought about doing this, but I've never got around to it, so I promise one day I will.

7. Go see a romantic movie

Nope, nope, I'll barf! Not happening, strictly horror movies for this girl, sorry!

8. Make them a care package

See, this makes me think a lot about what really defines romantic, because I do this all the time, but I don't consider it romantic, I just think it's sweet.

9. Take a walk on the beach together

I've done this, but I have to be doing this while looking for seashells or I feel like I'll be bored.

10. Make a CD for them
