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.

5 Everyday Struggles Awkward Girls Face When 'Flirting' With Their Crush

There is an art to flirting, and I definitely don't know it.

It could be that you're just awkward or can't flirt in general. Personally, it's only around people that I'm interested in that I can't seem to play it cool. If you're like me, you'll totally understand. Here are five things only the girls who are far, far too awkward to flirt with their crush will understand.

1. You try to joke but it's really just lame

Like, you're trying to be ~cool~ and joke around but it kind of comes out as just an awkward attempt to fit yourself into the conversation.

2. You can't tell if they're flirting back or not

It has to be pretty obvious for me to pick up on boy's signals. Maybe they're bad at flirting or it's just me, I don't know.

3. What do you do with your hands?!

No, seriously. Keeping them by your side seems weird. Crossing your arms is a no-go. Putting your hand on his arms is ~flirty~, but you can't keep it there the whole conversation. I need something to hold in my hand otherwise it gets weird.

4. Eye contact... what is that

Do you stare at their eyes the whole time? Uncomfortable. Do you wander them around? They might think you're not listening. I think there's a fine line between too much eye contact and not enough, but how do you know?

5. How do you even start a conversation to start this so-called flirting?

It is so unbelievably uncomfortable to go up to a boy you have a crush on and strike up a conversation. What do you say to begin with? The weather? I think my mind goes a little blank if I'm left alone to try and wade my way through terrible awkwardness.

37 Semi-Psychotic Things Girls Do When They're Talking To A Guy But Not Actually Dating Him Yet

Everything you thought you knew about L-O-V-E was wrong. I promise.

Modern relationship goals seem to consist of 1. getting past the talking stage, 2. figuring out if they're being serious or not, and 3. getting to know through social media or texting instead of actually talking in person.

Throughout this process, some girls are willing to pull out all of the stops to hook a guy in.

At one point or another, I bet most girls have done at least one of these. "Gotta do what you gotta do..." am I right??

20. Befriend their mom on social media

21. And their siblings

22. Snap him a lot while he's in class

23. Hang out with him and his friends as much as possible

24. Go through his playlists to see what you can play to impress him when you're in the car together

"Hey, did you hear about __________'s new album??" Greaaaaaat conversation starter right there.

25. Rope him into doing something with you a week or two later so that you know he at least has to give you a shot until then

26. "Accidentally" leave your stuff at his place so that you have to see each other again.

27. Talk about how much food you can eat/are willing to eat compared to other girls

28. Talk about how you're not a picky eater

29. Act like you go to the gym all the time.

"My body is a temple." **Goes home after hanging out with him and eats a whole bag of chips**

30. Spend A TON of extra time making a cooler for his frat formal so that all of his friends compliment him on it and he is constantly reminded that YOU DID THAT FOR HIM.

31. When you already know the answer, so you wait for him to lie

"I told you so." Boy, bye.

32. Talk about him all the time... then complain about him because he's letting you down... continue to give him more chances... and get let down again

33. Joke... too much

34. Triple and quadruple text him even when he still hasn't texted you back from the previous day
