COED MAGAZINE AUGUST 2006 BY JULIA ALLISON When I began my freshman year, I read a little book called “Making the Most Out of College.” It featured dozens of upperclass students and recent grads giving advice on various topics: grades, professors, dating, extracurriculars.
The new guys seemed so cute, and your love life seemed so full of possibilities.
But soon you knew all their names, who was cool, and who was weird.
And now you've dated everyone you wanted to, or you don't click with the guys at your school, or you're tired of the high school drama — and you can't wait for college.
You've heard the basics about college dating: more types of guys, more freedom, and more mature relationships (hopefully).
But with close living quarters, no parents, and stressful classes, things get intense, and college has its own soap operas.
Read on for the inside dirt you'd have no way of knowing until you're on campus — and need to know if you already are.With so many different types of guys around, it's tempting to sample them all! Hookups can be fun, but a lot of times they're mini bombs that explode in one of two ways: into a relationship (rare!), or into misunderstanding, hurt, or just thin air.At the typical beer-soaked party (even if you're sober), you can't always tell which guys want a one-night thing and which ones truly like you.If you've been drinking, there's not always a trusted friend there to stop you from going too far with a guy you just met.Just like there might be things you're not telling him about your life, he could be hiding stuff too.
