If you want to afford that lifestyle, you better start selling your plasma…or drugs…Expectation: The colleges and universities on TV are filled with beautiful people attending huge parties and orgies. If you lack confidence and common sense, you’re going to have just as hard a time getting laid in college as you did in high school.You may have left high school a virgin, but when you get to college, you’re going to get laid all the time. Your crush is dating a professor by the time you build the nerve to talk to her.Thirty-year-olds looks back at their college selves the same way college students looks back at their preteen selves.
Staying committed to your high school sweetheart can offer structure and support in this time of uncertainty.
But that's not to say it's easy—as you settle into your new life at college, it can be challenging to also think about (and meet) the needs of your partner.
So much pressure is put on that first kiss, and you want to see fireworks like you’ve always heard.
Reality: You don’t realize how bad college students are at kissing until you kiss them. Unfortunately, they’ll still try too hard to replicate what they’ve seen in the media and on the Internet.
The odds of them actually achieving these goals are slim, and they’re grossly unprepared to rise above the flock.
Also, guys of every age are just trying to get in your pants; some are just willing to treat you like a human being to get there. Reality: A movie will set you back , dinner is another , and you’ll waste a quarter tank of gas traveling between the two.
Expectation: These “women” may sound intelligent (and are likely quoting something they learned in their freshman Sociology class about how they are), but they’re every bit the same mess you are.
They’re out of their parents’ house for the first time, and they’re learning how to act.
After hearing every set of parents discuss how they met and fell in love, kids have a perception that their ideal fantasy hook-up can and will happen. When adults reflect back on how they fell in love with their partner, they tell you an abbreviated 10-minute version of a story that took them 20 years (multiply by 525,600 to see how many minutes) to live through.
