The saying "birds of the same feather flock together" is true and its something to remember. So I'm a lesbian, and I'd like to point out that the 10-1 female to male ratio generally works in my favor.The people who you surround yourself around will tell you more about your personality and what you will be exposed to more than anything else. Howard is a big school, by the LGBT community can be a little small.The women at Howard are beautiful, and I met my GF of over a year here my freshmen year.These unwelcome experiences inspired the creation of Bumble; the feminist-driven app determined to change the dating culture for women.Oh and not forgetting the infamous ‘bromances,’ where you do not know who is the third wheel and who is in the relationship.Sandwiched onto one side of four-seated picnic table my date literally had his cake and ate it, plus a side of cocktail sausage.Deciding that I could win a wine drinking competition I ended up passing out.So from angel to clown I fell into a mentally unstable stupor… On the other hand, one of the girls got to experience the full vulgarity of a whiskey sour.
Wiping the slate clean, as they say, I allowed myself to be set up. However, it went so smoothly that I obviously had to take charge to spice up the drama and sabotage myself.
The word awkward doesn’t even come close to describing the atmosphere, turning as red as the wine I wanted my empty bowl to swallow me whole.
On another occasion I went on a date with a guy who was so forceful, or desperate… But, I spent the next day at work wearing bright pink lipstick to hide my bruised lips! I come from Leeds, which has recently been voted the best place to date whilst at university so you would think I would have better luck there. Although, the dating situation is better with more places to go and things to do than what there is in Egham, I have had some rather stomach-churning experiences there too.
Although the boys outside of university are not as “forward” as those in university, they have a lot of talk and that seems to be it.
For most of the boys outside of uni rely on social media and so when it comes to showing their face they tend to have a media melt down and retreat to their computer chairs, shivering in fear at the thought of a face-to-face meeting.
