14 Things That Every College Guy Is Asking For In 2018

Holiday season is officially upon us! Soon the snow will stay and the trees will be up and decorated. But with Christmas right around the corner, this means Christmas shopping is here as well. Shopping for your boyfriend who's in college can be quite stressful when he's indecisive and doesn't know what he really wants or says "I don't care." I went around and asked my guy friends and my boyfriend about things they would like under the tree this year and they all seemed to be the same or relate to one another. Here are some gifts you can surprise your boy that will be on his wish list this year!

1. Video games


If a guy in college doesn't play video games, is he really a guy in college? There are TONS of video games available in all different genres and many of them go on sale for Black Friday. Some of the hottest games this year already include Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Spider-Man.

2. Tickets to his favorite sports team


Tickets to a professional sporting event are always top of your boy's list. Surprise your hunny with tickets to watch his favorite sports team. You can never go wrong with watching his favorite player dominate on the court/field!

3. Shoes

Who doesn't like a brand new pair of shoes? Every one of my guy friends my age loves keeping their shoe game on point. Whether they're a fuzzy pair of moccasin's to keep his feet warm all winter or a new pair of work out shoes to keep him grinding at the gym, he'll love them.

4. Clothes


Clothes are the perfect gift for anyone in college. They can range from anything from bottoms to tops. Shock your lover with a sweatshirt with his favorite basketball team's logo on it.

5. Cologne

Almost always cologne is listed under my boyfriend's Christmas list. Not only is it a present for him, but then I get to obsess over how good he smells! My boyfriend's favorite cologne is Bleu De Chanel.

6. Headphones

College is all walking to class, and when we walk to class, 99% of the time we have our headphones on. A brand new pair of Beats really can make that trip to class extra enjoyable with good music and good headphones.

7. Apple Watch

Smart watches are today's newest trend and always on college-aged kids wish lists. Apple's newest Apple Watch series 4 just came out not too long ago. Your boy can track how much he walks, runs and can even text you back on this little watch.

8. Gift cards


The safest way to go are gift cards of your man's favorite places. Either clothes to food to gas cards, he'll be happy with any of them.

9. His favorite player's jersey


This is always a safe gift too. Every guy who is any guy has a favorite athlete. The Milwaukee Brewers just made franchise history with 102 wins and had their first playoff appearance this year since 2011, amaze your BF with this Christian Yelich jersey!

10. Beer


Man's real best friend.

11. Concert tickets


Concert tickets may only be a piece of paper or a ticket on your phone, but the experience will last a lifetime for your man. Almost every guy wants to see their idol at least once.

12. Socks

Guys love socks! There's also so many different kinds and brands you can buy to keep his feet nice and warm all winter long. My boyfriend has so many of the pair pictured above, they go with everything. You can buy them here.

13. Something for his gaming system

My boyfriend is always asking for things for his PlayStation 4. Guys always want to keep their consoles fresh and updated with new controllers, headsets or extra storage to keep giving them the best gaming experience.

14. Cash


Still don't know what to get your partner in college? CASH. They can literally buy anything with cash (duh!). The easiest and simplest way to go... maybe even the best way!

I Asked 11 Strong Independent College Girls Why They Plan On Staying Single Alllllll 2019

We don't all need a man to be happy.


Listen. Not every college girl wants a ring by spring or really even cares about finding a man. With the popularity of going to college just to walk out with a Mrs. Degree, all the confident and single ladies tend to get overlooked.

Well, ladies, in case you haven't caught on to 2019's biggest dating trend, I'll share it with you—it's loving yourself and staying single. Here what these 11 strong, independent, college girls say about their plans to stay single alllll 2019.

1. Boys are dumb. Simple as that.

"The male species literally is incapable of using their brain at 20-years-old, I'm going to wait until 30s so maybe they will know how to use their common sense. Sorry boys." - Shelby, 20

2. I want to grow on my own.

"I want to focus on learning more about myself and challenging myself. Also, relationships are complicated so I'd rather spend that time worrying about or focusing on school." - Molly, 18

3. Self-love is the best love.

"I need to learn to love myself more than I have been the past two years. I just got out of a two-year relationship (which I am still severely heartbroken over) but I am actually excited to be living life for me." - Caitlin, 20

4. The time spent on focusing on gaining someone else's love will now be spent on finding love within myself.

"It's not that I plan on staying single, I'm just not going to actively put myself out there and fine tune myself. I have spent the past couple of years doing everything I could to find a guy, dating apps, blind dates, letting my friends run my dating apps, socializing a little extra and it just makes me so tired. I want to focus more on myself and what I like to do. Take myself out for a nice dinner and spend time with me. Not watching Netflix but actually getting to know who I am and love myself again, because how you can expect somebody to love you and know you if you don't even know or love yourself?" - Leah, 23

5. Time for some power moves, sister.

"I'm achieving my career dreams without any man holding me back or making me second guess myself or my decisions!" - Jenny, 21

6. Someone print this on a damn t-shirt or something.

"I'm trying to get A's, not Baes." - Holly, 20

7. Well, to put it simply...

"Men are trash." - Bobette, 22

8. Your potential should not be defined by a relationship.

"I've found there's more to life then having a boyfriend. Right now, I'm transitioning from being a college student to my career and I think the last thing I need is to worry about starting a relationship. I'm going to focus on loving myself this year." - Sarah, 21

9. So much time has already been wasted...

"I plan on staying single because boys have been too much of a waste of my time already." - Erin, 21

10. What's the move in 2019? Self love. That's the move in 2019.

"For myself, honestly. I just want to focus on me." - Lex, 19

11. I'm the best me when I'm single.

"I just function better when I'm by myself. There's no extra stress and no need to please or impress anyone." - Jordyn, 20

30 Questions You NEED To Ask By The Third Date To Decide If There Should Be A Fourth

Just save everyone the time, take a risk and ask.


Seeing if you are compatible with someone is much harder than one would originally think. If you are an amicable enough person, getting along with people can be easy enough. You might get along with someone great but could never have a successful relationship with them.

Honestly, life is too short to be too scared to ask the hard questions. If you want to be dating this person, you should want to just dive right in, and get to know them. Some of these may seem like premature questions, and that you're concerned with scaring the person away—but I believe that if you are dating someone you should see a future with them, and why waste both of your guys' time if you aren't even on the same page?

This is something I have personally learned over the years since I am a pretty confrontational person. I will just go right in and ask someone a relatively intimate question, and if that person is uncomfortable, then right there I know we're probably not a good match. Even though everyone is different, communication is still very key in every relationship. Don't be afraid to ask some of the hard questions at the beginning of the relationship. If anything it will bring you both closer, or show you right off the bat that maybe you're not the best match.

Here are 30 of the best questions to ask on a date:

1. What's your best friends most redeeming quality?

2. If you had 24 hours to live, what would you do and who would you spend it with? 

3. What's the best piece of relationship advice that came from your parents/grandparents?

4. When was the last time you laughed so hard you couldn't breathe?

5. What what a big lesson you learned from your last relationship?

6. What does your ideal day look like?

7. Most awkward moment you had growing up?

8. What's a mistake you've made that later made you a better person?

9. Would you drop everything to go do something spontaneous and out of your comfort zone?

10. What's the most stupid thing you've done, that came with the best memories? 

11. What's your idea of a perfect date, start to finish?

12. If you're gonna drop a lot of money on something, what would it be on?

13. When/where do you feel most yourself?

14. What are you most scared for the future?

15. What are you most excited for in the future?

16. Do you see yourself having a family of your own one day?

17. How's your relationship with your family? 

18. What/who constantly drives you to be better? 

19. PDA? Yay or Nay? 

20. What's your dream job?

21. Are you alright with being uncomfortable?

22. Where's the craziest place you've done it?

23. How important is your alone time?

24. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

25. Are you a morning or night time person?

26. Kids, love or hate?

28. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

28. What's your biggest pet peeve?

29. What is the best time period in a person's life?

30. Dogs or cats? (This one's a deal breaker)
