Last week I asked the CollegeCandy writers to share their biggest piece of advice for dudes. Then I passive aggressively sent that link to every guy I know. What can I say? I’m a philanthropist.
This week I asked the writers to dole out the advice again. This time, though, we’re dishing it to the ladies. Not because we hate, but because we want to stop our fellow females from making huge life mistakes. YOu know, like wearing full makeup to the gym or starving themselves to fit some unrealistic standard of beauty.
Share your own nuggets of wisdom and advice with your sistas in the comments section.
Kiki – University of Missouri: Friends don’t let friends date Justin Bobbys. Also, you can probably get that top for $24.80 at Forever 21.
Gemma – NYU: Cliche but true: chicks before dicks. Men can be awesome, but you’ll have more fun if you spend less time thinking about ’em, do what makes you happy, enjoy your kick-ass friends, and then let a lucky fella or two come along for the ride.
Alex – Lakehead University: Don’t compromise yourself for a boy. You won’t have to change anything about yourself when someone loves you.
Leah – Ryerson University: If you have to think about whether a piece of clothing is too short or too tight, it probably is.
John – UConn: Girls, secretly, men all wish we could be pretty like you. I mean, right? Right, guys?
Thu – USC: Five-inch heels are not necessary for class. Seriously.
Erica – Kent State University: Don’t hate the girl, hate YOUR GUY.
Lauren – University of Michigan: The number inside your clothes doesn’t matter. What does matter is how they fit. You’ll only look bigger if you try and squeeze that booty into a size too small.
Ricki- University of Michigan: You may think that faking an orgasm is a good idea, but in reality, your man will never learn the real way to please you. Try instructing him instead.
Lauren H – The New School: Always carry condoms! You cannot rely on men to be prepared!
Katie – Michigan State University: Pajamas are for your bedroom, not anywhere else. I don’t care if it’s only the grocery store, even jeans and a tee-shirt are better!
Donnette – Manhattanville College: DO NOT depend on a guy to boost your self esteem. Find yourself, love yourself, respect yourself.
Noa – CU Boulder: Making out with other girls doesn’t make guys want you. It makes them think you’re trashy.
Vanessa – Sheridan College: You WILL be okay, even if you’re single.
Liza M – University of Minnesota: Invest in quality, well-fitting bras! Seriously girls, they make all the difference – you’ll look and feel fabulous
Charlsie — Hollins University: Every woman needs to know how to check her oil by herself. It seems like a small task, but I think it’s pretty important.
Maddie – Tufts: Know when the something looks good on you, and if it doesn’t, don’t wear it just because it’s “in.” Ex. if you are not tall and somewhat thin, do not wear high waisted jean shorts. Just don’t!
