You know plenty of people who came to school freshman year with a boyfriend or girlfriend from "back home." How many of those couples lasted past Thanksgiving? A few last til January, but that's only for the sake of their "we'll always be together" ad in the high school yearbook. Women get dressed differently than men. Women hold their clothes up to their body, while men hold their clothes up to their nose. When I was in high school, I was told that when I got to college, girls would stop falling for the assholes. When I was a freshman in college, I was told that towards the end of college, girls would stop falling for assholes. Towards the end of college, I was told that after college, girls would stop falling for assholes. Apparently, no matter how old you get, assholes are still very good looking. College girls tend to go for the Ken doll type looks nice, has plastic hair, and absolutely nothing on the inside. College guys tend to go for the Pez dispenser type their bodies are pretty much all the same, and though most would prefer a Princess Leah head over a Miss Piggy, the guy usually only cares about the candy below the neck. God has played a number of cruel jokes in his time. But the cruelest of all is that when females live together, their cycles begin to coincide. So what happens at school? You fill a hallway full of them, and mix in exams, papers, and your standard social pressures. But that's not a recipe for disaster. Like this column? Then buy the book!
