College Columns

I wrote a relationship column for my college newspaper, The Daily Gamecock, for a  bit called “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” I was the first columnist to have a specific “beat.” I was loved and hated, but advice never gets old.

Breakdown those hidden emotional walls

Post break-up semester has its advantages

‘Tis better to have loved, lost than not to have tried

Sex talk cosmopolitan? Most certainly

Companies dating policies’ condemn couples

Don’t buy self-help books — help yourself

Like Lassie’s passing, getting dumped bites

Sharing bed with strangers is risky business

Don’t let rocks ruin rush of going over falls

Commitment stereotypes falsely classify sexes

Silence doesn’t imply consent for sex

K-I-S-S-I-N-G keeps inner-youth singing

Before bailing, beware of bad possibilities, others’ feelings

Starting relationships requires more than easy temptations

Hope, sarcasm essential for college reality

Self respect comes before taking abuse

Bottling feelings waste of time

Breaking-up needs cyber-world space

Post-break up time better spent single

Guys keep reading for dating success

S.S. Couplehood comes with life boat

Dear tonsil-hockey players: Time out

Compatibility more than first glance

Fix one bad habit, two take its place

Quit hearing love notes inside babble

Delayed break-ups not worth facade

‘Happily ever after’ idea, impossible
