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).

Cuffing Season May Have Ended But That Doesn't Mean My Shot At Love Has Gone With It

Hurt leads to happiness, never stop looking for it


This time last month, I thought I'd met a guy who would put an end to my vacant cuffing season. He checked off every box on my list and created new ones to add to it. I was in a daze and things went fast and I was perfectly fine with that. Voices in one ear said be careful, while voices in another said go for it. I let my guard down, and I got played, it's as simple as that. He got what he was after. It stung and it still does. He took a part of me with him through the door, and I don't think I'll ever get that back.

I am still coping, but I'm better than I was when it happened just two weeks ago. I'm ready to get back up on my horse and ride the trail of single life confidently again. Some may say cuffing season is over, but I have to disagree. I refuse to give up on the search for a relationship and neither should you.

Some people find their person earlier than others, and while I am jealous of that, I have to remember to remind myself that there's someone out there for everyone. He's probably figuring out life, just like I am, maybe wondering where the girl of his dreams is. I'll never know what he's up to, but I'm sure he's probably going through or has gone through similar issues. If I give up, and consume myself with the fact that I always end up single and will be forever, I'll never get anywhere in life. I know my worth and the right person will see that and snatch me up. In the meantime, there is no need to just sit around and wait for him to show up.

I'm a work in progress waiting for the mechanic to oil me up and set me free. I'm free, but I want someone to be free with if that makes sense. Yes, I'm struggling with some self-image issues at the moment, but everyone has their struggles. I'm at peace with the woman I am and am proud of how far I've come in my almost twenty-one years I've been on this Earth. You and I, we don't need to be with anyone who's anything less than what we want.

You deserve the moon and the stars and everything that lies beyond. You are priceless, and don't let anyone make you feel differently. Relationships are meant to develop as their destined to, so forcing anything won't work in anyone's favor. That being said, be open and honest with who you talk to, and let yourself be hurt. Hurt leads to happiness, whether we see it that way at the moment or not.

I've had my moments of hoping that boy will message me again, professing how sorry he is, and asking for another chance. I'm a forgiving person, so I try and hear everyone out, even if it's against my better judgment. I know that this trial is just leading on to someone better, and I refuse to let myself give up because a few busybodies think cuffing season is over.

Having A 'Talking Stage' Proves Why Millennials Just Suck At Dating

Because who actually "commits" in 2019?


As a millennial who is currently in college, I've noticed that dating isn't how it used to be like back in 1995. We are the generation that can't live without our phones, are tech-savvy, and sadly, the ones who suck at dating.

This is not another bitter article because I "don't have a man," or I'm "jealous of what people have." In fact, I am actually in a good place and I am speaking on behalf of what I've seen. I'm tired of my friends coming up to me crying because their "man-who-isn't-really-their-man" isn't acting right.

I've seen more friends with benefits and flings rather than relationships.

Maybe I'm different, but I can't imagine just being around someone only to have sex. After a while, that gets extremely boring and if you have nothing else to offer, you just get "ghosted" instead of telling that person how you really feel.

See, in my opinion, that's the problem with this generation. Sex is considered meaningless now and it is basically easy to get. With all of these dating apps swirling around, it's almost impossible to avoid it. People would rather have meaningless sex than get to know a person and commit. It's like every time the word "commitment" or "relationship" is brought up, that person runs away. But they're so comfortable to have sex.

What really irritates me is that after two weeks, a lot of guys, in particular, get mad when a girl asks him to get rid of his "hoes" or "other girls he's talking to," but still expect a girl to drop their pants after talking to them for two hours.

That's another thing too. Let's talk about the "talking stage." So basically, by INFORMAL definition, the "talking stage" is basically when two people just TALK before dating. Did you make a face yet? Because that exists now. But seriously, talking about WHAT honestly? Don't you do that when you're I don't know, DATING? And even during the talking stage, people still have sex, which makes no sense to me. You guys aren't dating but you're not dealing with anyone else. In fact, they'll get mad when you're hooking up with someone else. And when you start to catch feelings, it ends with "Oh, I'm not ready for a relationship right now."

So what exactly are we doing then?

Wasting my time?

Imagine filling out a relationship status on a ballot or something and the options are; "single," "married," "widowed," or "we're talking." And no, that's not what "it's complicated" is for.

It's sad because I feel as if this generation forgot how to love again. There are many people who are currently in relationships who are lucky. But for the rest of this generation, people would rather bang it out then talk it out. And people would rather "talk" than "date." I mean, what's wrong with both? If you're happy with what you are doing, then do what ever you want girl! If you are in this situation and you're unhappy, then what exactly do you want? Attention is nice, but after a while, if that person isn't really fulfilling your needs, what's the point of being with them then?
