Grow up, but seriously...

I've come to the conclusion that my peers are lacking couth when it comes to dating. This post is more of a survey. I will share my opinion, but I really want to know what you think.

This generation of dating has inserted a stage of the relationship that previously did not exist. This stage is often called the "talking/texting" stage. It involves exchanging phone numbers and getting to know someone through mindless, flirty text messages that are often filled with too many smiley faces and lol's. How well can you really get to know someone when you know each person is spending an ungodly amount of time composing the perfect message that will make them seem as witty and charming as possible. We have killed the tradition of dating and it is extremely disappointing. I'm getting off topic, I'll get back to business...

My issue with dating right now is the inability for my peers to tell someone that they are no longer interested in continuing whatever they have started. If you're not interested in someone, the mature thing to do [in my opinion] is to tell them. There is a polite way of doing this. An example would be...

Hey, I think you're really great. But I'm sorry, I'm just not interested.

You don't owe them any further explanation. And trying to be polite by responding to their texts or phone calls is simply leading them on. The polite thing to do is to tell them that you are not into it.

Point of my story: Don't lead people on and definitely don't avoid them. You will run into them at some point, and you don't want to spend your time dodging people that you've hurt. Don't be the jackass that led him/her on or the bitch that quit calling without notice. Be the classy guy/girl that had enough couth to tell the truth even if it stung a little.

What if you start liking one of their friends? They might put in a good word for you by saying, "oh they're a great person, I really liked them, but things didn't work out." That's much better than being the sketchball, trust me.

Let me know what you think...

What a girl wants...

We went to Mexico Joe's yesterday. Yes, seven of us piled into the car despite the strong warnings from the weathermen to stay at home. A little snowstorm can't stop my friends from indulging in Stillwater's finest white queso and homemade tortillas. I looked around the table and realized that all of my friends were in fact single. I'm not 100 percent positive, but I would make a very large wager that the Alpha Chi Omega will not see a candle light during this school year. I keep hearing about the countless engagements that are blossoming around campus, but there will be no such celebrations at the Alpha Chi.

However happy we are for all these "lucky" ladies who have found their "prince charming" "soul mate" or "other half," we cannot help but be skeptical of these so called "happy endings." Over the past year, we have witnessed these "prince charmings" acting not so charming. Cheating and infidelity seems to have become an epidemic across campus. The symptoms are highly contagious and include, but not are limited to:
1. inappropriate text messages late at night
2. inappropriate text messages during the day
3. drunk texts such as: "im hammered, come over"
4. sober texts such as: "I promise, we broke up." only to see them on a date later that day
5. whispered conversations in the corner of Murphy's, damn those palm trees
6. buying girls drinks who aren't their girlfriend
this list goes on...and on....and on....

These are just a few of the side effects of the disease. Some experience only one, while others have a more serious case and have been diagnosed as terminal and end up following through with their suggestive behavior.

So this makes me believe, that I actually may be the "lucky" lady after all. And that my friends are actually the smart ones who realize that boys our age aren't ready for marriage. They make great friends, and fun make-out buddies, but nothing more. I wish it wasn't true, but these boys have proven time and time again that they can't be trusted.

You can call me a cynic, but I don't believe in love at our age. Most relationships are driven by lust, convenience, or both. At this point in our lives, we need to figure out who we are, and adding another person to the mix will simply skew the conclusion.

My friends do sometimes stumble, and we do run back to our ex's occasionally. It's comfortable, easy, and convenient. But time and time again, we realize that even though the two puzzle pieces fit together nice and snug, the picture on them doesn't match. It takes a lot of maturity and gumption to avoid such relationships, but this is why I highly respect my friends decisions to be single.

Recently, my friend ended a very serious relationship that was making her left ring finger burn. She took a closer look at her puzzle of a relationship, and realized that the picture that had been created was vastly different from the puzzle of her dreams. I have gained an enormous amount of respect for this "lucky" lady. This is the type of gumption and maturity that I admire. Although she won't be hearing any wedding bells this year, she will someday find a puzzle piece that is a perfect fit and creates the beautiful picture that she deserves.
