My name is Dana and I’m in college. I’m surrounded by a culture of drinking alcohol, waking up drunk, and drinking some more to drown the side effects of a hangover.
Every guy I ever considered dating just so happened to drink, so I never really thought about what would happen if I ever met a guy who didn’t. Then I met a cute boy who doesn’t like to drink and it was a sobering experience to say the least.
I went to a house party one night with some friends that ran out of cups for the keg before I was able to get my hands on one. Getting ready to leave, this boy came up to me and offered his cup.
“What a gentleman,” I thought.
He told me he doesn’t drink. I was shocked, but intrigued because I was open to trying to get to know someone different than me.
We talked all night and starting texting back and forth as soon as I left. He insisted on taking me out on a proper date the next day. So the next night, I found myself at a coffee shop with this cute sober boy — even though I don’t drink coffee. Regardless, I was willing to explore his sober world because he was adorable AF. As we talked and got to know each other, it was apparent that we were complete opposites in every way. But for some reason, I was eager for something new.
After about an hour of conversation, he said he wanted to take me somewhere as a surprise. I’m all about romantic shit, so I agreed. I was starting to enjoy being with someone who wanted to surprise me instead of my usual dates of going to a bar.
To my surprise, he drove me to a dark wooded area that just so happened to have no-one around. The sign on the fence even said No Trespassing.
There was an abandoned house off in the disantace and he said he wanted to take me there. Keep in mind, this wasn’t even close to Halloween, so I was confused by his eagerness to take me to an abandoned house in the middle of the fucking woods. Not knowing this kid from a whole in the ground, I was starting to get skeptical, so I quickly texted my friends my location in case there was an attempt to murder me. I mean if I was ever to be murdered, this looked like the place someone would want to do it.
Nervous I might be murdered by my date, I still held his hand tightly as we walked in the direction of the house, just to try to be cute. I may have been alerting loved ones of my location, but I’m still a lady who wants to be cute for her man just in case I was being over dramatic.
As we were making our way to the abandoned house, his phone rang. It was his mother. She told him to get his ass home. Then we got the hell out of there.
I never talked to him again.
I’m not sure what would have happened if his mother didn’t call. One thing I am sure of, however, is a guy who likes to drink wouldn’t be spending his Saturday night in the middle of the woods without a keg. I tried dating someone with different interests, but it clearly wasn’t for me. I’m scared shitless to date someone out of my comfort zone and lifestyle. Just give me a cute guy with a beer in his one hand and my booty in his other hand.

Vintage Frat Is the Life of the Party on Instagram Right Now, Possibly Forever
Gone are the days of moms and dads knocking on wood that social media didn’t exist when they were young, dumb and figuring out the world. Remnants of debauchery from past generations are resurfacing on @vintagefrat, an Instagram account paying homage to legendary fraternity throwbacks.
Here’s some of the of the most lit pics from Vintage Fraternity. (Warning: You may see your mom or dad.)
“Hello Ladies, welcome to pledgeship. I’ll be your guide.”
Saturday’s are for the Brothers.
Take a moment to respect the most legendary composite of all time.
Daytona Beach ’89 was wild. #AskYourDad
There was always that one Brother who understood the meaning of life.
Here’s why your dad’s friends call him Superman.
And here’s when your dad met your mom.
Reminding the children of the future that House Hounds need to be the focus of every fraternity house.
And here’s a reminder that Benny the Beaver was probably with your girl.
Tribute to the Brother who didn’t even attend one class all semester.
Classic Spring Break transportation.
Sure, Greek Life has it’s fair share of wild times.
But @vintagefrat is a solid reminder that Greek Life is also a resume builder, putting students in positions that prepare them for the future.
Mainly, Greek Life is about togetherness. #NeverForget #AskYourDad

Why University of Scranton Is the Perfect Place to Find a Husband
I’m a senior at The University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I’m here to tell you why my school is the perfect place to find a husband.
From the day I arrived as a freshman in search of a degree and a good time, I was told I should also search for a husband here by upperclassmen who were taking courses toward their ‘MRS’ degree. (That’s Mrs., a.k.a. a master’s degree in finding a man.) Oh, they exist. If they haven’t landed a man by the fall semester of their senior year, they’re adding extra credit hours in getting a ring by spring.
It’s not like I can blame them. I acknowledge that there’s certainly some good looking guys at this school — it’s hard not to.
But I couldn’t see myself spending the rest of my life with one. You see, there’s a distinct type of guy that typically goes to this school. They’re the epitome of a rich, preppy white guy.
They tuck in their pastel button-down shirts and sport a pair of loafers to hit the bar scene on a Friday night. Their idea of dressing down is wearing a $42 plain-white Vineyard Vine T-Shirt. They dress like a middle-aged, balding, career-crazed father of three.
Oh, and they drink like one, too. They basically look and act like a stereotypical man in their 40s who is unhappy with his wife, life, and needs to binge-drink, binge-smoke and binge-fuck his way out of jumping out of the top floor of the Wall Street skyscraper he works in.
Meanwhile, all I want is a cute guy who takes his schoolwork seriously, has a little height on me and wants to eat chicken wings off my curvy bottom.
But my options seem to be limited to college boys who look like they’re trying to impersonate their fathers.
I guess the girls who told me The University of Scranton is the perfect place to find a husband were right. I just didn’t know they looked like a 42-year-old alumni’s husband.
I guess my only chance at getting a ring by spring is if one of them saves the dad-look for when they actually work on Wall Street. But I’m cool enjoying my senior year with my friends. My philosophy in life is that everything happens for a reason and plans are a waste of time.
