so I think it would be better of an advice to "make yourself better as a person....complete yourself" so that you won't go around looking for the very acceptance from others...and be confident as to who you truly are...
once you reach the niche point...the girls will pick up on how indifferent you are towards 'em and will actually do what they can to try and get your attention. You need to seperate yourself from the 500 other guys who are trying to "be themselves"....but what everyone seems to miss out on is the real image as to who you really are...
This is just my opinion, but it seems women in general are able to sense confidence in a guy and will shy away from you if they you dont see to have that sense of "confidence".
It is important to be you, but more than anything be confident in whatever you do.
Just because there is alcohol there does not mean you have to drink.....
And while I have never been to a party where alcohol is not present, I am sure there are some where people just go to socialize and dont drink at all. You wont catch me at any of those, but not for the alcohol reason. I am just not all that big into parties any more. Kinda sad, but as you get closer to 21 it becomes less and less of a big deal.
Im 23, and I have to disagree with you...in regards to partying.
I myself have never drank a sip of alcohol in my life...i don't smoke either...
and i don't feel left out from any good parties cause I don't do either.
A little bit of both.
I stopped doing house parties after HS graduation, and I drink from time to time but I really dont have a close group of "friends" that I hang with.
Even when I get involed with females, I dont really go out to parties and the such with them. I may go out to a club or something, but even that is weak before you are 21. "excuse me miss, can I buy you a coke?"
I dont drink a lot, during the week, but I am ashamed to admit I have had a few jacks and I have had the occasional cigar. I am a lucky SOB that I never got addicted.
In conclusion, your last point is a valid one. You dont have to cave to peer pressure just to fit in, even if that is a hard thing to beleive when you first get to college.
Sorry twscholl, Im going to hand the thread back over to you.
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

Oh, and muchas chicas here!
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
Aren't addictive like cigerettes, or aren't as addicting?
Any plant leaf you smoke, as chemical characteristics that make them addictive. (Yes, even pot.) The difference with cigarettes is the additives they put in them, that makes them even more addicting.
Is McNUtt really as crazy as everyone says it is?
Hey, more advice from a just hired college professor (I start Monday). In regards to both dating and not drinking at parties...a great thing about being the designated driver is that you can choose to take the hot chick home last.
Any plant leaf? So I could get addicted to the tree outside my dorm window?

And for the addictiveness:
Man the girls in college are crazy good looking. I'm going to get me 2 or 3.
Btown or anyone else that went to IU, if I am going to consume alcoholic beverages , where do you suggest I do it to not get caught by the cops?? Do the cops in bloomington really crack down hard on underage drinking?
