What Bobcats Look for in a Commons Crush

One of the most important aspects of life at Bates definitely has to be having a Commons Crush. That mysterious, beautiful stranger (that just so happens to eat meals on the same schedule as you do) has a unique way of brightening your day. We asked 15 Batesies what they look for when picking a Commons Crush. Here’s what they said:


“Generally tall guys with short hair, sometimes facial hair, but not an overwhelming amount of facial hair, though still a sufficient amount. But it’s is not a requirement.” –Lilly


“I always look at someone’s smile first. Then their eyebrows. Sometimes both at the same time, sometimes the eyebrows first.” – Jenna

“I look for a man with the same hairstyle as me.  And by that, I mean a half bun.” – Daisy


“I typically notice teeth first. I like big teeth and a full smile. Also, the bigger the teeth the bigger the food that gets stuck in them.” – Olivia


“A pulse. “ – Johnny


“I always look for a girl with worse vision than me. Then I steal her glasses.” – Oliver

“Long hair, tight pants. If his hands are covered in blood that’s always good.” – Sarah


“Not mean looking, I don’t want someone that walks around snarky all the time. I like someone who looks like she enjoys life.”- Andrew


“I look for someone with uneven facial hair, t-shirts with puns, open-toed shoes, and raw passion for learning.” – Sam

“Someone who looks clean but like semi-outdoorsy. Like verging on hippie but very well-washed.” – Claudia
