15 College Students Confess The Pettiest Thing They’ve Ever Done When It Comes To Love And Hookups

Have your feelings for another person ever caused you to do something out of your character? I know mine have.

Earlier in the year, I started doing workouts at an MMA gym. Occasionally one of the instructors and I flirted a little bit here and there. I was never really into blondes, but I figured it was worth it if I could work my magic and flaunt him off on snapchat to make one of my exes jealous. I noticed another one of the instructors was more obvious about his liking for me so I used that to my advantage too just in case. I even agreed to go on a free trip with both of them to South Carolina at the end of spring break. Long story short, they both caught on to the fact that I was using them and my plan backfired severely.

I wondered if other people also had the same kind of experiences or if I was just crazy so I created a survey, asking college students what the pettiest thing is that they've ever done. Here are 15 of the pettiest responses.

1. Subtweeted their ex

"I subtweet my exes tweets about me." - Female, 21

2. Changed their boyfriend's passcode

"My boyfriend at the time lied about this pool party he was attending so I changed the passcode on his phone so he couldn't get in it." - Female, 22

3. Slept with their ex-boyfriend's best friend

"I fucked my ex-boyfriend's best friend more than I fucked him" - Female, 21

4. Purposely pissed off someone's ex

"I slept with a girl knowing I was the rebound just because I knew it would piss off her ex." - Male, 22

5. Abstained from sex for a whole month

"I got mad that my boyfriend ignored my text so I didn't have sex with him for a whole month." - Female, 21

6. Canceled their date's Uber 

"I glanced at this girls' phone while on a date and she was telling her group chat how she was finessing me for food. So I called an Uber for her once the date was over… and canceled it halfway to her destination." - Male, 23

7. Sent their ex-girlfriend a video of him hooking up with her best friend

"My ex cheated on me so after I dumped her ass, I sent her a video on Snapchat a few weeks later of her best friend giving me a blow job." - Male, 22

8. Competed with their best-friend over a guy

There was this guy at the bar that both my best friend and I were eyeing the whole night. While my best friend was using the bathroom, the guy came up to me and asked about her. He was more my type than hers so I lied to him and told him that she was already taken and gave him my number instead." - Female, 21

9. Lied about the quality of their sex

"So I had been hooking up with this girl for MONTHS and we had the best sex I've ever had in my life. She ended up ghosting me after a while and always said she didn't have time to hang out because she was busy. It turns out that she was actually interested in a friend of mine. I told my friend that her riding skills were trash and tried to talk him out of being with her." - Male, 21

10. Had their best friend pretend to be someone they were cheating with

"My ex-girlfriend was being really clingy and annoying for weeks and we had been fighting non-stop to the point where I couldn't take it anymore. One day I was hanging out with my best friend (who I knew my ex didn't like) and noticed that I had 3 missed calls from my ex. I tried to ignore it, but by the 4th call, I picked up the phone and had my best friend answer saying 'Sorry, she can't come to the phone right now. She's busy going down on me.' We broke up the next day." - Female, 23

11. Faked a pregnancy scare

"I felt like he was losing interest in me after a while and I didn't want him to break things off because I was so dependent on the relationship. I ended up having a fake pregnancy scare." - Female, 23

12. Broke their boyfriend's PS4 controller

"My boyfriend wasn't giving me enough attention and kept playing Fortnite for HOURS while I was trying to bond with him so I snatched the PS4 controller out of his hands and threw it against the wall. It broke and he didn't speak to me for three weeks." - Female, 23

13. Slept with someone else's boyfriend and exposed him on Twitter

"I fucked this guy knowing he had a girlfriend and then told her about it and when they didn't break up I posted his dick pic on my Twitter and @'d her." - Female, 20

14. Pretended to date their best friend’s brother 

"I pretended my best friend's brother was my new man, posted pictures of me and him boo'd up at a basketball game and posted them to make my boo jealous." - Female, 21

15. Called their ex-boyfriend's mom and told her that he died

"My ex dumped me so I called his mom and told her that he died. Then I waited a few minutes and said "Just kidding!," hung up the phone, and blocked everybody in his family." - Female, 21

Disclaimer: I am in no way, shape or form glorifying these actions. This is just to shed light on the reality of the fact that love and infatuation make us do some manipulative stuff sometimes.

11 Things The Man You Love Should Do For You, No Questions Asked

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that mean a lot.


Every girl feels special when the guy she's dating does simple things for her that not everyone thinks about. Here's a list of 10 things that every girl genuinely appreciates.

1. Open/Hold the door

I feel like this one is really simple because everyone has to walk through doors. Chivalry isn't dead, let him open the door for you. He's not trying to prove that you can't do it for yourself, but he's trying to be polite and show you that he cares for you.

2. Give you really big hugs

Everyone has bad days, and sometimes you just need a really big hug. Whether it be a bear hug or the hug where he picks you up and spins you around, it will make you feel better in the long run.

3. Buy you really small gifts

One of the best things my boyfriend has ever done for me is simply bringing me a Dr. Pepper when he knows I'm tired from a long hard day full of exams or work. Sonic slushes will also make my day in a heartbeat.

4. Text/Call you just to tell you he loves you

This is pretty simple. It takes less than 10 seconds to text, and only a few minutes to call. Sometimes you get these texts right at the perfect moment, and it makes you feel so much better.

5. Come see you when you're sick

Everyone hates being sick. But seeing your friends and family while you're sick can make you feel so much better. Having your boyfriend come to see you and possibly even take care of you just makes being sick that much easier.

6. Respect your decisions

You're not married yet, so your decisions are up to you! He should respect the decisions you make and support you, even if it's not what he thinks is the best decision. After all, you know yourself better than anyone else!

7. Give you a shoulder to cry on

We all have bad days, and sometimes you just can't stop the tears from coming. Even if he's not good with crying, he should give you hugs and love to help you get through it.

8. Compliment you

Even if you look horrible and know so, hopefully, he'll still tell you that you look good. Even if the clothes you're wearing aren't his style, he should still tell you that they look good on you and that you are beautiful each and every day.

9. Call you when you're away or he's away

If you're like me, I miss my boyfriend after being away for about three hours, so when we're apart for more than a couple days, I love getting random calls from him when he knows I'm not busy. It's definitely better than a text.

10. Deal with all your annoying quirks

So if you're anything like me, you enjoy screaming music as loudly and horribly as you can in the car and making a complete fool of yourself, but he should love you for that anyway. I also love to take really stupid pictures, and he should put up with that too. He shouldn't be annoyed by your quirks, he should love them and laugh along with you.

11. Love you no matter what

I honestly feel like this goes without saying, but I put it on here so that the girls who don't feel like they're being loved no matter what can realize. He should want to work out problems with you instead of calling it quits and holding a grudge. He should want you to be happy and support you in every decision you make in life. When he loves you unconditionally, he will do all of the above things and more.

If You View Being In A Relationship As 'Losing Your Freedom,' You’re In The Wrong Relationship

Someone had to say it.


Relationships are about being the best possible version of yourself separate and together. They're about growing with and doing life alongside your partner. They're fun, loving, and granted, they can sometimes be challenging.

Some challenges that frequently come up in relationships are disagreements (which are for sure gonna happen, because you're two individual people!), dealing with stress, and depending on where you're at in life, it could also be financial struggles. Of course, all relationships are going to have problems and everything won't always be “rainbows and butterflies" as Maroon 5 like to put it.

That being said though, one challenge that shouldn't ever be an issue in a relationship is the loss of freedom. Where did this idea come from?

I see it all the time, people talking about not wanting to get into a relationship because they don't want to "lose their freedom".

If you are in a relationship which causes you to lose your freedom, you are 100% in the wrong relationship.

Being in a relationship is not synonymous with not being able to be yourself or be able to do what you want. In a good relationship, you will be able to still have your alone time, be your own person, hang out with your friends, the list goes on and on. All of these things are so important. Relationships should never consume your life, they should complement it.

Why is this even a conversation we need to be having? Seriously.

Now obviously if you're referring to losing the option of getting with other people or dating around, then yes, you're right, you absolutely shouldn't get into a relationship... but that doesn't mean relationships mean losing your freedom.

If you are in a relationship with someone you love and respect, getting with other people isn't even going to be on your radar. It truly is that simple.

The trend of hating on relationships, for this reason, has gotten so out of hand in recent years, especially on social media. It's so frustrating, though, because it could not be any more inaccurate.

You should absolutely still have freedom in relationships. You can have it. I for one absolutely have it and do not view my relationship as the loss of freedom, at all. If you don't, maybe evaluate that relationship and realize it's not the best one to be in.
