reporter Alex Williams, who argues in his article "The End of Courtship?I'm lured in by these trend pieces and their sexy headlines and consistently let down by their conclusions about my generation's moral depravity, narcissism, and distaste for true love. Instead, I armed myself with a blasé smile and answered, "Just text me to let me know what's up. " Sure, I wanted a plan for when we were supposed to hang out but felt I needed to meet Nate on his level of vagueness. to ask "What's up" (no question mark — that would seem too desperate). When I saw him in class, he glanced away whenever we made eye contact. Instead, he said that he thought I was "really attractive and bright" but he just hadn't been interested in dating me. So to avoid seeming or any of the related stereotypes commonly pegged on women, I followed Nate's immature lead: I walked away to get a beer and dance with my friends.

Sure, being single in college is great, but there’s nothing wrong with being more romantically oriented. You will almost definitely get caught having sex (or hooking up).
According to my late 20’s Facebook timeline, those two categories tend to venn diagram a lot, AKA people meeting in college through friends. You’re leaving out the potential guys coming to visit their high school besties and meeting other guys from nearby schools when you go out. Not everyone wants to be officially together with everyone they hook up with. Like I said, everyone experiences college in a different way. It happens at least once to almost every college student ever, so don’t feel too bad. You will also almost definitely walk in on someone having sex. Oh, and you might try to have sex while your roommate is in the room.
