Someone once told me college classes provided the perfect opportunity to make new friends — boyfriends included. Since then, I start each semester with hopeful delusions that this will be the semester I’ll find Prince Charming sitting next to me, ready to make study breaks a whole lot more interesting. But, as I’ve come to realize, it’s time to face the facts. Scholastic settings are not always conducive to falling madly in love.
Sexism aside, there is a definite feminine or masculine pull toward certain majors. (And with three years of experience—and counting—I can tell you neither education nor journalism is included in the male-attracting majors category. Silent tear.)
So, for the greater good of the fledging relationship of you and your could-be college sweetheart, let me provide you with my list of the seven majors with the hottest guys.
1. Criminal Justice
Studying morality and justice is quite possibly the most obvious sign of a faithful and loyal beau. And, how noble. Mom would love him. This levelheaded cutie might have the upper hand when it comes to winning a fight or pulling the truth out of you, but the make-up sex has the potential for greatness: good cop/bad cop, handcuffs, bondage. The clichés are endless, and not taking advantage of them would be a serious criminal offense.
Look no further than the Astronomy 101 lecture hall for the most ideal guy with whom you can stargaze. Instead of laughing at your petty shooting star wishes, this keeper will no doubt join in on them. Followed, of course, by a boring tangent on the specifics behind the astronomical phenomena. But, hey, no one’s perfect.
3. Film Studies
Think of all the tall, quiet guys in black-rimmed glasses enamored with poring over hours and hours of uncut footage who are currently smoldering their way through classes in the film department. Stereotypical? Yes. Yummy? Hell, yes. Though this guy may have an overly critical eye, his creative nature will be sure to win you over. Nab one of these brooding babes, and get ready for the most imaginative dates of your life.
He wants to be a doctor. A doctor. Your personal McDreamy. The guy to drop off chicken soup when you’re feeling under the weather and totally not judge you for looking, ahem, sub par. The boy with the kind, caring soul. Need I say more? I didn’t think so.
