25 Boy Crushes Every College Girl Will Likely Have, For Better, But Likely Worse

Recently, one of my friends stated (and I quote): “Why do you need a boyfriend when you can just crush on like 100 different guys instead?"

To be honest, she has a point! Why should girls have to play mind games and deal with emotional breakdowns from bad first dates and fuckboys?? The best thing about boy crushes is that there is no heartbreak, zero commitment and effort but 100% satisfaction guaranteed (or your money back).

You see them everywhere—on campus, at home, at the dorms or even during lecture. Here are 25 of the most swoon-worthy boy crushes every college girl is likely to have.

1. Celebrity crush 

Self explanatory. Changes every year since you were 10 years old. Currently, mine is Charles Melton from Riverdale.

2. Rapper crush

His life revolves around girls in bikinis, private jets, and big dolla bills but he has some type of swag you dig. You imagine what it would be like partying with him on a yacht in the middle of Ibiza instead of holed up in the library listening to his music.

3. Barista crush

A potential reason why college girls love studying at coffee shops so much. You open your laptop at a nearby table pretending to study but really you're just watching him work. The hipster coffee shops in Silver Lake have the hottest baristas, don't @ me

4. Lecture hall crush

When you're bored in lecture and start looking around the 200 fellow students around you in a 90-minute game of Where's Waldo (but it's Where's My Future Husband instead).

5. Hot boy crush

The type of boy you probably met in political science (or any male-dominated) class and know you'll never have a chance with. Probably has blue eyes, is 6 feet tall, drives an Audi to school and has a dad who owns a law firm.

6. Campus crush

When you take a detour on your walk to class and pass by a drool worthy boy you're tempted to follow.

7. RA crush

I've had friends (not just at UCLA) spill the tea about some noteworthy ones who need to read me bedtime stories and make my morning coffee ASAP.

8. Professor crush

Probably was warned about his good looks via Bruinwalk/Rate My Professor reviews and you honestly just enrolled in the class to see if he met up to your expectations.

9. Library crush

“Hey, is anyone sitting here?"

10. Frat star crush

Loves beer, sexy and he knows it, drunkenly tries to hold a conversation with you but will likely forget who you are by the time he wakes up.

11. Public transportation crush

Offered you his seat when it got crowded so you can't help but imagine how great of a boyfriend he would be.

12. High school crush

The once scrawny/dorky looking boy from your AP Calc class who's, a "man" now, thanks to puberty. Probably pledged a frat freshman year, is majoring in finance (or business economics here at UCLA) and has a blonde girlfriend.

13. Parking valet crush

Wears heavy cologne, talks in a deep voice (usually with a foreign accent) and will park your car steering one handedly without closing the door. Suave.

14. Contractor/Construction worker crush

He's really there just to fix an exploded pipe but tells you his entire life story instead. Shows you a tattoo of his kid and wipes his dirty hands on his white shirt 😩

15. Security guard/TSA agent crush

Doesn't smile much, talks numbers into his walkie-talkie, has a radio attached to his ear and will narrow his eyes at you but you're somewhat attracted to his uptight, protective personality.

16. Pizza shop crush

The owners attractive son who works only on weekends but he's the reason why you ordered pickup over delivery.

17.Gas station attendant crush

*buys lottery ticket*

"You feeling lucky today?"

18. Store associate crush

"How's it going, I'm Andrew. Are you finding everything okay so far?"

19. Bartender crush

Just get me drunk, please.

20. Online shopping model crush

*Randomly goes through Polo Ralph Lauren's men section online to buy Dad a nice shirt and instantly feels entertained*

21. Pharmacist Technician crush

"Take these antibiotic pills three times a day and get better soon! Call us and ask for me if you need any further assistance."

*Starts blushing profusely*

22. Bank teller crush

Most likely wears an Apple Watch and black square rimmed glasses. Asks you how your day is going, but you pretend he only does it to you instead of every person that comes to his window.

23. Medical assistant crush

"Any questions before we get started on the operation?"

Me: "Yeah, do you want a small or big wedding?"

24. Coworker crush

You schedule your shifts so you're working together. You pray one day he will offer you a ride home after a night shift and confess his undying love towards you.

25. Hometown neighbor crush

Drool-worthy boy your parents will never approve of, but you just happen to be neighbors with since elementary school. Walks the family dog shirtless, throws house parties when his parents aren't around and waves at you in your least attractive moments (i.e. when taking out the trash).

5 Questions To Ask Yourself When You're On The Fence With A Guy

Is he worth it?


Whether you're contemplating if you want to continue your fling with a guy or contemplating breaking up with your boyfriend, there are always questions we're asking ourselves. Ranging from "is this right of me?" to "is this what will make me happy?" But if you are really sitting on the fence and don't know what to do next, check out these five questions you need to ask yourself if you're torn on what to do.

1. Do I want long term or short term?

This is a huge question to ask. If you're looking to settle down for a while, your guy may not want that. And it could always be the other way around as well. Make sure to decipher this with him so you both know what you want and no one gets a broken heart.

2. Can I see myself marrying this person?

I know this is a bold question to ask, especially if you're not dating. But really thinking about if you can see yourself with them for a long time can make it or break it. But say you're dating and you're on the fence of deciding you want to break up with them or not, think about if you can see yourself saying "I do" to them, and if you can't, let him go.

3. Can I see myself living with them/how do they live?

I've seen many people get engaged and move in together and later call it quits due to the way their partner lived. If you've been getting to know your guy for a while now and notices he lives like a pig, you may have to wonder if you'd be cleaning up those messes in the future.

4. How do they make me feel?

This question in a no brainer. If they make you feel bad, why even question continuing into the relationship.

5. Are they worth it?

Is he worth it? I know I have had some experiences when I was on the fence with a couple of guys and I've had to ask myself the same question. And when I'd question if he was worth it or not, my gut feeling always came out right. If you're looking to keep him around, always ask yourself if he's worth it.

Girls, You NEED To Understand That Fuckboy Texting You ‘wyd’ 24/7 Will Never Give You A 24 Karat Ring

I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you his wife.

Elle Hong

There are five unofficial steps of hookup culture: Find a guy. Get to know him a little bit, but not too much (because you have to keep "boundaries," remember?) Make a pact to keep things "casual" and promise to still be "friends" with each other. Then, hookup with him. And keep hooking up with him without any emotional attachment — just over and over again and never expect anything more.

From a birds eye view, hookup culture seems so harmless. I mean, what's more convenient than having a booty call at your doorstep with the swipe of a screen? When you want to hook up, all you have to do is shoot that 2 a.m. "U Up?" text.

Hell, I even wrote a whole article about the perfect FWB situation.

Yet suddenly—here I am, Elle Hong, resident "Uncuffed" writer on Swoon and self proclaimed fuckgirl who glorifies hookup culture above anything else, catching feelings and falling for the wrong guys just like any other girl out in the world.

Consider this blasphemy. Or maybe I'm just dying to make a confession.

A confession that I, too, have experienced the feeling of wondering why I was never enough for the guys I hooked up with. Why they never chose me over the girls they would eventually form serious relationships with and why to them I only was nothing more than a casual hookup.

So, I thought about it. I critically analyzed it. I "Aristotle-d" my way into trying to find an answer behind the impossible question of wondering why I was never considered to be anything more. Over the past few weeks, it essentially became my new research topic and now, I finally managed to crack the code as to why your casual hookup will never try to make you into wifey material. Here's why.

First and foremost: Guys usually (but not always) choose to hookup with girls who they don't see as anything more.

Now, keep in mind I'm not saying that guys will NEVER fall in love with the girls they hookup with because it can happen. It's life. Life is unpredictable. No doubt, people have fallen in love on Tinder and married a random match who just happened to become The One. But we all know what Tinder is really for. Generally speaking, guys will seek random hookups with the types of girls they think are "easy" and if they're desperate enough, it's definitely not going to be someone they view as their future wife.

If he thinks you're cute, you're within 10 miles radius and you can hold a conversation, it doesn't matter what your annual salary is or how many siblings you got—he wants one thing and it's to get you in bed. And until a guys find this girl who captures his heart and inevitably makes him want to settle, he's going to go around hooking up with random girls left and right. So in this case, it's not your fault. You're just with the wrong type of guy who only thinks of you as his sexual conquest.

See also: Guys want to settle with girls that don't go around hooking up with other people.

Ironic as hell because I just talked about why guys would never want to settle, period. But think about it—guys are humans with rational thoughts and animalistic desires. When they find their territory, they mark it. Once he finds a girl who is the one, he never wants to let her go. And he never wants to see that girl be with another guy or god forbid, go around hooking up with other guys. So here's the moral of the story to get my point across: I hate to break it to you, but bragging about how many other guys you're f*cking outside of your current FWB situationship isn't going to help develop the relationship any further.

Finally: A girl's "hoe phase" might seem empowering but for guys they see it as a threat.

Thanks to the wonderful millennial encyclopedia that we call Urban Dictionary, we have a definition behind this certain life style: A phase in life which occurs when a girl goes around social settings exploring herself, committing promiscuous acts and connecting with random people. For girls, it seems pretty damn empowering, doesn't it? For us it's a chance to let loose, to live a lil bit more and to run around as independent women. Nothing wrong with that of course.

But for guys to perceive this type of lifestyle, they see it as a threat which could arise if they form a relationship with you. It's simple logic here. A girl who's in her "hoe phase" is more likely to be unfaithful since they're always out and about with this person and that person. Put it this way: a guy doesn't care if you're a hoe—but he only wants you to be HIS hoe and not everyone else's. So you might think that it's a great way to express yourself and to enjoy your college years, but keep in mind that it could possibly be holding you back from taking the next step with your casual FWB.
