Here’s Some Signs Your Boyfriend Might Suck

You may not realize that your boyfriend is the absolute worst. We're so fixated on all their good qualities that we have to shut out the bad ones and ignore them.

Things To Consider When Deciding to Stay In and Study or Go Out and Party

When I stepped onto my college campus fresh-off-the-boat (or FOB, as they call it) from some-obscure-country that I call home, I had no idea of the social niceties of dating in the states; my encounter with the opposite gender consisted of couple of weeks with a classmate in high school, who thought that drawstring shorts were most fashionable when paired with topsiders and gold jewelry.

Attention Incoming Freshman Girls: We Already Hate You.
