And for this week's edition:
How do I graduate Baylor with the triple crown? (the ring, the degree,
and the job?)
- Let me step into Cheese-ville for a moment: Be dedicated to your
degree program and be ambitious in your life. Focus on constantly
improving yourself, and part of that means being open to criticism
from yourself and others. Do this for the majority of your college
career and you might get 2 out of 3 of the 'triple crown'. Getting
back down to earth, let me approach this question with a bit more
objectivity: You are at college for one reason: To get a degree that
prepares you for a career. That is what you (or let's be honest, your
parents/the government) are paying all this money for. Getting the
perfect man and the perfect job is not part of this process. The fact
that you're asking/reading this means that you likely don't have a
boyfriend, so let's not kid ourselves. Focus on your studies, and let
things happen as they happen.
Do all guys really want the "perfect" girl? I mean, do all guys really
want a girl with big boobs, wide hips, a skinny waist, etc?
-Uh, yeah. Of course we do, we would be stupid not to. We're
programmed to look for specific physiological traits to find a healthy
child-bearing mate. Now, the question you have to ask yourself is
this: Is the guy that you're interested in immature enough to chase
after an impossible ideal (aka The Halle Berry Coefficient, or The
Taylor Swift Syndrome for girls), or is he grown up enough to
appreciate you for who you are?
Why are videogames more important to my boyfriend than I am?!
We'll sit in the living room for hours while he plays online with his
friends. I'd rather be spending quality time together than sitting
next to him on the couch.
-Because Modern Warfare 3 just came out and he needs to get back on his game!
Another possibility is that you and your boyfriend have two different
ideas about what 'quality time' is. To most guys, what you're
describing is the same way guys bond with each other. It may be that
he doesn't understand that women spend time together very differently
than guys do. I'd suggest sitting down and explaining the difference
to him in very unambiguous terms. Try not to get too annoyed when he
claims it's the same thing.
