5 Things Everyone Needs To Demand From Their Casual Hookup

There he is. Your eyes meet. The butterflies in your stomach are loud enough for the entire room to hear. Your palms moisten and your palpitating heart seems to want to beat out of your chest. You muster up the courage to walk to him, but someone has you beat.

Think quick. You make a detour to the bathroom, as to not draw too much attention to yourself. Who was that girl? It doesn’t matter anyway, right? The two of you only casually hookup.

Friends with benefits, hooking up, whatever you decide to call it — gets messy. Sure, you get the “buddy and the boo,” but tippy toeing around those invisible boundaries of “Am I wrong for feeling this way?” gets old. A casual relationship doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a clear division of what you’re willing to accept. Read more at College Candy…

9 Unexpected Ways Boys Are Really … Girls

I have lived with a male roommate (platonically) for almost a year now. And boy-oh-boy has it taught me a lot about boys. Most things I already knew, that they are generally messy, that they would rather pay you to do dishes than do it themselves, and that they hate watching Four Weddings marathons.

What I wasn’t prepared for, however, is how much boys have in common with girls. After much discussion with my friends, I have come up with a list of 8 ways this is true. Read more at College Candy…

10 Reasons Lisa Simpson Is The Only Role Model You’ll Need

Lisa Simpson is what can only be described as one of the greatest feminist characters in cartoon history. Every week my family would watch The Simpsons on Sunday as a ritual, so I can say that without a doubt that I wonder if I would be the person I am today without Lisa Simpson’s bookish, witty, misfit attitude. She always felt like an outsider but she never let that stop her from pursuing her interests which mostly consisted of reading books by female authors like Jane Austen and Sylvia Plath. Lisa’s rejection of the male patriarchy and acceptance of all, including the tiniest of animals when she became a vegetarian at eight years old, shaped and influenced my worldview growing up. It made me more empathetic toward others and wonder if it was OK to play with Barbie dolls. Read more at College Candy…

Julie Chen got plastic surgery to look less Asian after blatant racial pressures from her agent and co-workers jeopardized her success.

Who doesn’t need their nails to dry faster? If you’re like me and regularly wake up with weird creasing and indentations in your nail polish then you probably don’t have the patience to let them dry all the way. I paint my nails once or twice a week but I simply cannot resist immediately typing on my keyboard or eating food right after I’ve painted them. Today, all of us antsy mcpantsies will take a stance and find a way to make our nail polishes dry quicker because, let’s be honest, none of those “quick dry drop” things really work and they also make your nail polish chip faster. Read more on College Candy…

What’s The Deal With Guys Giving You The “Slow Fade”?

I remember reading a really thought provoking post on here a few months back about “ghosting”. At the time I was like, “YES! YES! Mental hugs to this author because she is describing my life and the lives of my friends’ and even the life of my dog probably!” So basically the situation with ghosting is that you’ll be talking to a guy…you know – “talking to”/hooking up with/so on and so forth…and then he just disappears. POOF! Into thin air, the guy you thought you had a connection with totally up and vanishes. Read more at College Candy…
