College Boyfriends: Expectations vs. Reality

Posted Mar 25 2014 - 8:00pm

When it comes to boyfriends in college...

Okay, just kidding. We do. 

Dating in high school was a pubescent disaster, so we figured once we came to college, our boyfriends would be mystical and perfect. Gone are the days of the immature Justin Bieber types and here to stay are the classy college men. Or so we thought.

Boyfriends in college don't always fit the prototype of our dream man, but we aren't afraid to admit that what we expect from our boyfriends in college isn't always realistic. But hey, a girl can dream... right?

Expectation: He knows how to dress like a grown man... and it's really hot. 

Reality:

Expectation: He's insightful and tries hard to keep you figured out. 

Reality:

Expectation: He knows how to give you a sincere compliment. 

Reality:

Expectation: He can cook you a delicious meal without burning your apartment down and clogging your arteries. 

Reality:

Expectation: Now that he's older and more mature, he understands the meaning of deep, passionate, true love. 

Reality:

Expectation: He learns to fall in love with your weird habits, like sprawling like a dead starfish when you sleep. 

Reality:

Expectation: He is on the same page with you when it comes to the future of your relationship. 

Reality:

Expectation: He doesn’t mess with your emotions and make you feel crazy.

Reality:

Expectation: No amount of whiskey, beer or tequila can take away from his ability to be a gentleman.

Reality:

Expectation: He isn't afraid to get a little emotional from time to time.

Reality:

Expectation: He's way more mature about the whole "woman's body with natural curves" thing. 

Reality:

Expectation: He genuinely enjoys spending quality time with you with no distractions. 

Reality:

Expectation: His life aspirations don't entail getting rich off a startup company containing "swag" in the title.

Reality:

Expectation: He's willing to give up his Man Card every once in a while and pose for sentimental Instagram pictures.

Reality:

Expectation: He's finally nailed the gift-and-flower-picking thing. 

Reality:

Expectation: He tries to sympathize with you while you endure that time of the month

Reality:

Expectation: He still acts as excited and crazy about you as when you first met that night at the bar. 

Reality:

Expectation: He never runs out of cute ways to be spontaneous.
