How to meet Guys in College: Top 10 Tips

College guys 101: So you’re a single girl in an awesome college, and by now you’ve figured out that the long-distance relationship thing just doesn’t work. Time to meet some new guys, but how? Here is some expert dating advice for meeting guys in college without being “That Girl.

How to meet Guys in College: Top 10 Tips

You’ve got the hot designer labels, membership in the coolest sorority, and the latest iPhone, so…what’s missing? A new boyfriend!

Ok, let’s back up here. Was it always like this? No. You left Peter behind in Wichita and now you need a “college guy” to complete your ensemble.

Where’s a girl to look? There are plenty of places to meet guys, but you need to follow these simple rules:

1) Don’t leave without a cute ensemble!

Never leave your dorm without your make-up and hair done to the nines. You never know if that spontaneous trip to the university Laundromat is where you’ll meet Mr. Amazing on the Campus. Even Taco Bell may be a college hunk hangout! So, always do a lip gloss check. Don’t ask why.

2) Hang out in places with high guy-girl ratios

This usually means sporty, logical places to meet guys from your college. For example sports parks are a sure win. There are guys hanging out doing testosterone-filled stuff. That works to your advantage. First of all, there are no other sorority girls to compete with, so you’ll look like a supermodel just because of the odds. Secondly, their testosterone levels are up, so you’ll look like a supermodel anyways…win-win!

Great places to meet guys at college would be the Science or Computer lab- major chances there. Or try the math section in your campus library.

3) Join the campus gym.

I cannot tell you how many dating success stories started at the gym. It’s just like going clubbing without the drinking: you get hot pumping music, endorphins instead of an alcohol high, and a stimulating undercurrent in the room. Plus you’ll get fit while cruising for guys. If you’re college doesn’t have a gym, then check out something local.

4) Go to the frat parties.

Ok, so 90% of the guys at college parties are wasted or doing beer chasers, but you might meet one of the sensitive 10% in the corner. Go to as many college frat parties as you can, even if you have to crash.

5) Eat at Taco Bell.

Don’t ask why, but college guys love fast food establishments. Tacos and enchiladas are filling food for a cheap price, so they’re a hit with the college dudes. Put on your sombrero and high heels and take a booth. I can almost guarantee you will get hit on.

6) Frequent coffee joints near campus.

This is a great way to meet guys who go to your college, but you have to use strategy. Go to the same coffee place at the same time on a regular basis for about two months. If you have no luck with that time frame, then choose another one, or a different location.

This establishes a routine where a potential suitor can watch you and know when you will arrive. This can also give him an opportunity to observe you and work up the courage to ask you out. Always refer back to rule one while doing this.

7) Shop in the guys section of a clothing store.

This is a great trick for meeting college guys. Speak loudly to the salesperson that your brother likes browns and button-ups. This is an obvious ploy to squash any ideas that you may be shopping for a boyfriend, and is subconsciously registered as flirting by the male brain.

8) Go to church…or synagogue

Every guy wants a college girl he can take back home to mom. Sunday morning services are where the marrying types hang…seriously. A dude who fulfills his religious obligations makes for good boyfriend material.

9) Ask for road service.

Pull over on the side of the road with a map. Guys love being the knight in shining armor, even academic college types. Park a mile away from college, and stand on the side of the road looking bewildered. Give it a few minutes. A guy will eventually pull over and ask if you need help. Look relieved and grateful. He’ll eat it up.

 10) Get a life.

This is the single most important rule of dating in college and onwards. Call it a law of the universe, but when you are truly focused on your life, your career, and your studies…in other words, when you really don’t have time for a boyfriend…THAT’S when you’ll find the guy of your dreams.

College Dating 101: Reading a Chick’s Body Language

Most people meet their future life mates in college. When it comes to dating on campus, women usually like for men to initiate conversation. To find out if a college classmate you like is interested, it helps to be able to read female body language.

College Dating 101: Reading a Chick’s Body Language

Body reading is a deceptively simple science, and armed with the right knowledge you could score a phone number and meet your lifelong soul mate.

Here are some basic clues to help you decide if she’s silently saying, “No way,” “Maybe…” or “Hurry up and ask already!”

Stance is vital. A woman who feels comfortable in her own skin will stand with her feet widely set apart, claiming the territory. This could also mean, Let’s meet for coffee after class.”

If standing with her feet close together, she’s probably intimidated or uncomfortable.  Maybe this would be a good time for an icebreaker?

Shifting of feet reveals excitement, impatience, agitation, or nervousness. If you’re at a frat party, she’s probably having a good time. In the hall, then she could be in a hurry to get to her next class.

Where is she standing? If a girl is standing near, she probably feels warmly towards you. You may have found your college sweetheart!

Is she leaning back? If if so, then give her some space. Now isn’t the time to ask for a date.

Crossed arms are a bad sign- they indicate a go-away position. Take that as a not-so-subtle No. Move on.

Open arms, however, indicate a relaxed position, and a feeling of safety.

Look at where her shoulders are pointing. Creatures will face the direction of what they want.

How about her smile- is it wide, genuine?  If a chick smiles while tilting her head, this shows playfulness and flirtation.

Look at her pupils and check if they are dilated, indicating “yes” or small, indicating “no like”.

Raised eyebrows show curiosity and interest. This could go either way, but it’s usually a good sign.

Eyes that are shut for longer than a few seconds indicate stress, despair, or alarm. Not a good sign.

Licking of lips shows interest, anticipation. This is a no-brainer.

Are her hands open? Open, relaxed arms and hands mean your date is at ease talking to you. A clenched fist means anger or anxiety. Either it’s something you said, or her new college professor just walked by.

Breathing also reveals a lot. Short halting breaths indicate nervousness, while long languid breaths signal calmness and ease.

About 99% of the time, a chick who touches her hair while talking to you is flirting.
