#1 The Bad Boy
This one will no doubt be in your early years of college (unless you don’t learn your lesson the first time or two) This is the guy that you know right from the start is bad for you. You meet him somewhere where you know that Mr. Right wouldn’t be hanging out. Maybe you see him from across the room at a party or he’s walking suspiciously alone on campus at night and you know he’s not coming from a night class. When you make eye contact he gives you a mysterious half smile and right there you can already tell he’s bad for you, but you don’t care. He’s a little dirty, but in cute way right? He’s loserish but in sort of a ‘stick it to the man’ kind of way. The whole time you are “with him,” you never really feel like you are with him; he was never really yours. He will end up breaking your heart and leaving you in the dirt for someone else with out a second thought. There are many like him and you’ll want to try and tame them all but in the end, for the sake of your sanity, stop doing that.
#2 The Jock
He may be on the football team or the basketball team or rugby or baseball, or gold, or volleyball, or all of the above. He goes to the gym with his creatine supplements and cut off shirt more than he goes to class. Granted, he has a rockin’ bod, he’s not too good with the ole’ noggin. I mean what do you expect, he skips all his classes to go work out his muscles- not his brain!
#3 The Nerd
The nerd is the one that carries around the largest backpack that Staples had and it makes him look like he’s waddling around with a turtle shell on his back. If someone pushed him over, he wouldn’t be able to turn back on his stomach for days. He uses words that the rest of the population didn’t even know existed, and he someone maintains his perfect GPA. He’s got the thick-rimmed glasses that he’s constantly trying to keep from falling down his nose. He is textbook nerdy and not in the ironic way (see #5 the hipster.) Actually, all of these characteristics are kind of endearing. Okay, he’s flat out adorable. After all, he’ll probably end up as the boss of the meat-head you dated last year.
#4 The Sensitive One
He is so nice and caring and nice and compassionate and nice and nice. Maybe a little too nice actually…. At first he seemed like the perfect package- he understood your feelings perfectly, he loved to share his feelings with you, he cried at the end of Bridesmaids, he seems to cry at most everything actually. He seems to have a monthly cycle and it’s matched with yours. That’s the last thing you want when you’re sore and moody- another sore and moody person eating all the chocolate. Something is just not right about him. I mean c’mon- no one can be that nice!
#5 The Hipster
The hipster is a tricky combination of the sensitive one, the bad boy, and the nerd (in an ironic way of course). He wears your grand dads clothes, he’s pumped to buy some stuff from the thrift shop, and he occasionally rocks a wolf on his noggin. He’s a bit of a bad boy because he doesn’t follow societies rules; he doesn’t subscribe to the trends of popular culture. He’s sensitive enough to have feelings but not sensitive enough to care about them. He walks around with his skinny jeans and his iPhone ranting about fads that he hates. He seems like a cool cat at first but after awhile he just gets plain annoying. If I enjoy Katy Perry, let me freaking enjoy Katy Perry.
#6 The One You Think Is The One But After You Break Up You Realize He’s A Jerk
You are sure this is it. He’s so perfect. Your parents love him, your friends love him, and you love him! He is the whole package. You both just glow of happiness and you are all set to commit to him forever and ever and ever. Then, it happens. The break up is so crushing. You were perfect for each other! Little did you know, the whole relationship you were blinded by your “idea” of his perfection, that you didn’t see how much of a prick he was. When you take a stroll down memory lane and you start to look at the bad times a little closer, you realize he was no good. I guess your friends maybe mentioned you could do better. Maybe my parents did say he wasn’t as nice as they think I deserve. You know what? Good riddance!
#7 The one
If you’ve finally found it- you know it. Granted, you may not meet him in college, you will meet him. I wish you many years of wedded bliss and a big old happily ever after!
