10 Things College Girls Do That College Guys SHOULD Appreciate, But Don't

10 Things College Girls Do That College Guys SHOULD Appreciate, But Don't

A list of all the things that go into being a college girl that guys need to start noticing.

Being a college girl is hard, OK? We attempt to balance school, work, dieting, exercising, social activities and the list goes on!

As girls we are our own worst critics, therefore we are never fully satisfied even when everything is seemingly perfect. So many things go into being a college girl that college guys don’t even realize.

Guys have the luxury of rolling out of bed, throwing on their baggy frat T, and going to class without thinking twice about it. Most of the things that girls put themselves through are to impress a cute guy who has no idea how much she’s done just to get his attention. Here is a list of all the things that go into being a college girl that guys need to start noticing!

1. She always has a fresh mani and pedi.

Most college guys have no idea how much upkeep having nice nails requires. First of all, we have to make time every other week to go get them done, which takes at least an hour, and sit there while the nail artists pressure you to spend more money on designs, gel, etc.

Guys conveniently never notice when our nails look flawless but are the first ones to roast you when they look bad. Not to mention it isn’t cheap to keep up on our nails, we have to squeeze it into our college girl budget.

2. She makes sure her hair color, cut, and style is on trend.

Deciding on a hairstyle and taking a chance on a new color or cut is literally one of the most stressful things for a girl. We spend hours scrolling through Pinterest looking for our next potential hairstyle and pray that it looks as good as the girl’s in the picture.

It is at least $100 to go get your hair done every 4 to 6 weeks and if we hate it, then we are out $100 and depressed because it looks like crap. Guys shave each other's head for fun and don’t think twice about it because “hey, it’s just hair, it'll grow back!”

3. Her makeup is always on fleek.

Guys will NEVER understand the process of finding, buying, and perfecting makeup. First of all, finding the right makeup that matches your skin tone, doesn’t make you break out and lasts through a night out is a PROCESS.

Second of all, once we finally find the perfect combination of makeup chances are it's expensive AF.

So not only do we have to budget nails and hair, we also have to have enough money to keep our makeup collection stocked.

Last but not least, once we find the makeup and pay for it we then have to teach ourselves how to use it and make it look good. Girls spend hours watching YouTube makeup tutorials so that we can look flawless every time we see the cute guy we like. Guys will never understand the makeup struggle.

4. She’s always up in the gym workin’ on her fitness.

Keeping up on exercising and dieting is literally the hardest thing about being a girl. We can work out for 2 hours and not lose a pound but eat 1 taco and gain 5 pounds. On the other hand, guys can chug 10 beers and live off chicken nuggets and still have washboard abs.

Not to mention finding time to get to the gym when we are exhausted from both school and work is nearly impossible. We are our hardest critics when it comes to our body and just want to see ourselves as sexy. Budgeting for healthy groceries and a gym membership is just another thing that goes into being a college girl.

5. She always has the most stylish outfits and rarely wears them out twice.

Being a college girl means you have to always have a cute outfit for a night out. Whether it's a house party or a night out at the bars we always make sure our outfits are on point. Not only will the people at the party see what we are wearing but so will the world of Instagram so we can’t miss a beat when it comes to looking hot.

Keeping up with name brands, the latest trends, and the hottest styles are the most expensive part of being a college girl. We as college girls will spend $100 on an outfit just to get the attention of Alex from Phi Apple Pie who is wearing his dad’s old high school basketball jersey.

6. Her teeth are white, eyebrows are threaded, and her skin is clear.

I challenge any guy to go get his eyebrows threaded and then try to tell me beauty isn’t pain. We as girls are waxed from head to toe and take the pain like the bad Bs that we are!! We make sure that our pearly whites are as white as possible and have that flawless smile that all the boys are looking for.

White strips aren’t cheap either boys, they are at least $20 a box. Not only do we spend money on makeup and white strips, we also have to pay for facial moisturizers, cleansers, and masks to keep our skin looking smooth. Chances are college guys don’t even wash their faces and still have clear skin.

7. Not only is she flawless, but so are her surroundings.

No guy wants a girl who is a slob and leaves her car/room a mess. In the midst of balancing everything else, college girls have to make sure that their environment is clean and organized. She always has candles burning, her bed is always made, and her car is always freshly vacuumed.

Even when we are EXHAUSTED from going to school all day, working all night, and squeezing in a late night workout we still make sure our apartment is clean. College guys throw a party on Saturday and still have the aftermath of the beer pong game untouched on Tuesday.

8. She’s got beauty AND brains.

Above everything else, we are college girls because we are young intelligent women working to achieve our goals. We are constantly worrying about our GPA and cramming for exams in our hardest classes.

Being physically attractive draws the guys in, but being intelligent makes him stick around. As girls, of course we want guys to think we are beautiful, but we also want him to respect our knowledge and work ethic. Keeping up on academics is just one of the many things that a college girl is stressed out about.

9. She grinds hard at work.

So CLEARLY being a college girl is expensive, therefore we have to put in work to fund our lifestyle. We work doubles, wake up early, get off work late, and still do it all while looking good. Without working we would not be able to achieve all of the things as girls that we want to achieve.

Not only do we work for ourselves, but we also work because we want guys to know that we are independent women who work hard and can support ourselves.

We strive to be impressive in every category so that guys don’t just want to hook up with us but want to stay in our lives because they are drawn to us in more ways than one.

10. Her Insta game is strong AF.

OK, so all of the things that go into being a college girl are put on display via Instagram. Her fresh manicure, new haircut, sexy body, perfect smile, fire outfit are all put out there for everyone to judge and hopefully “like”... literally and figuratively.

SO MUCH thought goes into her pose, caption, and filter that it's almost embarrassing. Girls Instagrams are how they are represented to guys online and get their attention.

Our Instagrams stress us out on an unhealthy level OK... we know it's ridiculous, but getting hundreds of likes is our guilty pleasure. Getting an absurd amount of likes on Instagram somehow makes us feel like all of the stress of being a college girl is worth it.

17 Things Every Girl Wishes Happens To The Dating Scene In 2018

Girls want guys that want to get to know her on a personal level. Not guys that look at her based on what she looks like.


The dating scene in 2018 is really hard, harder then it needs to be. Girls just want a guy to want to get to know her and love her for who she is and not what she looks like. They don't want the first message from their match on tinder to be asking if they want to hook up, they want a "Hey, how's your day going?" Girls want to have a guy that cares about them and has a great personality. But for those things to happen these 17 things need to happen in the dating scene in 2018.

1. Don’t lead her on

If you have feelings for here tell her and if you don't tell her that too. Nothing hurts more than to flirt with a person for a while and then find out they aren't interested.

2. Make it less confusing

Asking the question "What are we?" 20 times seems like too much. Personally asking once is too much, tell her right off the bat what you want from this relationship with her.

3. Stop trying to hide your emotions and “be tough”

Girls want to see the real you, that includes the ugly. Girls don't want a brick wall, they want the emotions, a girl would rather see a guy cry than see him fight.

4. Sex is a no until you know more than what's on the surface

Everyone knows sex is better when you actually know the person. Girls don't want a bunch of guys texting them about having sex with her, they also don't want dick pics they didn't ask for. So maybe we should stop doing both.

5. Get to know the real her

Make an effort to get to know her and what she stands for. Don't just get to know the surface things but go deeper than that, find out things about her without her telling you.

6. Go on dates without any interruption

Dates are made for a specific time for you to get to know her if she's talking to you and you start being on your phone not only is it rude but it's also called being a douchebag.

7. Open car doors or just any door

Just some old-fashion cute stuff that will leave butterflies in her stomach.

8. Listen to her

This is a way to show her you care. Even if she's talking about something completely dumb just be there next to her listening to what she's saying.

9. Give her roses

Just showing her appreciation for her being there for you or just showing her that you thought about her.

10. Write her cute little letters

This is another way to show her you care. These notes don't have to say a whole bunch, it can literally just say "Your beautiful."

11. Take her to a concert she really wants to go too

You don't have to buy her the most expensive tickets in the venue but taking her somewhere she really wants to go shows you care about her hobbies and her likes/dislikes.

12. Introduce her to your friends

Before she asks to meet your friends, introduce her to them. You don't have to do all at the same time but do the important ones, like your best friend and/or closet friends.

13. Don’t make her worry about getting cheated on

Show her you're loyal and that you only want her, don't look at other girls in front of her or honestly ever. Make her feel like she's going to be your forever person.

14. Give her a necklace with your name

Be her Troy Bolton!

15. Be there for her when she needs you the most

Know when she's feeling down by just looking at her and don't ignore that. Help her lift herself up or be there for her when she does it herself.

16. Don’t ghost her

Ghosting her will hurt her more than you breaking up with her face-to-face. If you don't want to be with her then tell her, of course, she's going to be hurt but she will work through that.

17. Break up with her in person

Breaking up with someone over a text is the worst thing you can do. If you don't want to be in a relationship with her anymore then have the balls to stand or sit next to her and tell her.
