Reality: Every guy is just a slightly older version of a dude you knew in high school. Expectation: You’ll have fun, casual one-night stands where you’ll walk home carrying your heels in the morning, giggling to a friend about a sitcom-worthy awkward moment. Reality: You’ll wake up next to a random person, try to sneak out, and get caught by 10 people in the dorm room.
But a lot of people stumble along, meeting tons of Mr. I heard this a million times in high school: “College guys are so much more mature and better, just wait.” Um, no. Reality: Most of them seem to have regressed in age, maybe. Expectation: You’ll go on sophisticated dates where you go to a fancy restaurant wearing something fabulous (like in the magazines). You guys go to a frat party and then pass out in a cramped bed in a tiny dorm room.
I remember thinking about college when I was a senior in high school.
My friends and I were all convinced that the college dating scene would be so much different.
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.
