Regardless of how many psychology classes a guy can take in college he will never understand the opposite of sex in such a short time. However, in the four years I’ve spent at Fairfield studying (at least that’s what I tell my parents their $120,000 went towards) I have come to some general conclusions in my quest to unravel the complex spider web of the female persona.
No matter what the argument is about, no girl or guy (because your friends are included in on this one too) is worth it if the argument with him or her lasts longer than it takes to write a term paper. Life is short and college is shorter, use every minute to party hard or get your work done. Don’t waste your time being bitter.
College teaches independence so ditch any needy girl that hasn’t learned this already. My advice, go after junior or senior girls because A.) they have already learned to be independent and how to be chill and B.) the consequences of the freshman fifteen have already set in so there is no guessing how she’ll look in a couple of years.
Finally, no matter what a guy does, how nice he tries to be or how sweet he tries to come across with a girl, she will always find something wrong to argue with him about. Arguments are inevitable and they are not fun but they serve a purpose. The purpose of arguing is…is there a purpose? I still don’t know.
Fairfield University is home to some of the finest beauties in the Northeast. No other time in your life will you be surrounded by a ratio of 52 to 48 females to males. In the real world, the pickins are slim so take advantage of your time here while you can. I’m going to miss this place and the fun I’ve had but the pictures will take me back in a heartbeat. Lets just hope that any disgruntled girls upset with me over this column never break out the Saran wrap or streaking pictures someday. Actually, when did I ever care? Good luck class of 2002!! We’ve been through a lot. Why walk on sunshine when you can crawl out of the bar? See you alumni weekend!!

With graduation approaching, I’ve come to realize that I’ve learned much more about people than I did about anything else these past four years. The most interesting people I’ve come across have definitely been men, an unquestionably confusing group.
The most important thing I’ve learned is that under no circumstance can a guy and girl be just friends. I know, it’s so sad. I don’t mean drinking buddies or study buddies, I mean real, honest, tight friends. Either someone wants a piece or someone falls in love and then the friendship is over. It’s incredibly unfortunate, but men and women have too many instincts to exist in the same relationship with no strings attached.
Another thing I’ve learned is that when a guy dumps you with one of the three following reasons; he wants to be with his friends, he’s not ready for a serious commitment, or he just ended a serious relationship- HE’S LYING. Most likely he found someone else, wants someone else, or the someone else is your best friend.
In any case, I’ve learned that guy’s have a real problem with being honest. This is because college doesn’t necessarily turn boys into men, so many are scared to tell the truth.
I don’t want to end this year like a feminist man-basher. I don’t think men and women were ever meant to fully understand one another. But that’s what makes it so fun. We all say we hate playing “games” with the opposite sex. But if their were no games, there would be no fun.
There are a hundred mysteries of men that I will never know the answers to. I’ll never understand why men think they’re always right or how they could pee all over the seat and still not wipe it.
No matter what, men and women need each other. And without men, I think I speak for all of us when I say, we’d lead a pretty boring life.
