girls: what do you think?
I'm going to talk about something that happened late in the fall term. I was taking a biology course that required us to do weekly lab experiments. I'm a guy and in the lab, there was a friend of mine who is a girl. She's Chinese and came here from China to study. This was the final week, so it was going to be used as a review session for the final exam. When the door to the laboratory was unlocked, we put on our lab coats and put our backpacks in the lockers outside. But when we went in, the TA told us that lab coats won't be necessary on that day. So everyone went back outside to take off their lab coats. And when my friend got down to put hers in her bag, I noticed she was wearing a thong and her thong was showing from the back of her pants. But I didn't tell her partly because I was too shy and partly because I felt excited. And I could still see it some of the time when we were sitting down in the lab. Now that the term is over, I'm wondering what would've happened if I told her. So girls, how do you thing she would've reacted? And do you think that saying something was the right thing to do?

Dating: Long Distance
PLEASE READ! Long distance relationships are not what they are portrayed to be. They are not as hard, emotionally draining, or as impossible as people assume. Right now, I am living 3 hours away from my boyfriend (who plays a varsity sport). We see each other once or twice a month. We are both happy, both with room to live our own lives but always being able to catch up at the end of the night. We still love each other, nobody has been unfaithful, and it is relatively easy. The time we spend together is always quality time, and I do not regret staying with him.If you love someone and think you they could be the person for you, go for it. The worst that could happen is that it doesn't work out and you part ways. It is entirely possible, do not give up just because of what you THINK might happen.

Pros of a long distance relationship...
1. The time you spend together is really exciting and precious
2. You have the freedom to be yourself and make friends on your own terms
3. You always have lots to talk about with your S/O because you're apart during the day
4. It tests whether the relationship is really worth it
5. Meeting their new friends means more friends for you!
6. Sex/physical intimacy is so much better when you've been waiting for it
7. It will show you how much your partner really values you
8. You don't need to pick between your friends and partner during the week
9. It helps keep you focused

I hope that this helped anyone that needed to hear it.

Why Can't I Get a Girlfriend?
Salutations my dearest of comrades. It is on this fine evening in which I must express misfortune with my chances of acquiring females to be my lovely girlfriend. I have a set of criteria for my preferred partner:
- 95% average or higher
- Blonde hair, blue eyes, caucasian
-Protruding female attributes 
-Anywhere between 4'11 and 5'5
-Wealthy (parents must make a minimum of $250,000, after tax, every year)

I strongly believe that this list of criteria is incredibly lenient and easy to find. Nonetheless, I cannot find a girlfriend! Why is this so complex? If it helps, I have 99% in health care. Please help me!

Advice on long distance relationship in university!
Is it possible to keep up a relationship when you and your significant other go to different universities and will be hours apart?   My boyfriend and I are in grade 12 and have been together for a while in highschool, however, we want to go to completely different unis (5 Hours apart) Is the relationship worth keeping? Or should we just end it before uni to allow us to have that fresh new experience and meet new people? Anyone have any advice/experience with dating someone who ended up going to a different university? Share you stories! I'd love to hear them.

I am applying to Uni this December. I am deciding between Laurier BBA and Schulich BBA. So Far I heard..  


Pros- Reputation, Community, Small class size, networking  
Cons – No co-op, curriculum is hard, commute,  


Pros – Easier to get high Gpa, Co-op, #1 in student satisfaction ranking  
Cons- Community (not many south Asians), risk of not getting co-op, bigger class sizes.  
Both of these school offers great opportunities. It will be difficult to choose between these two. If anyone from these school could give me some guidance or share their experience that would be great

Just a bit about me:

Hi! My name is Sarah Osifo and I live in Surrey British Columbia, however I was originally born in Warri Nigeria. I'm currently entering my First year of University at Simon Fraser University to study Health Sciences.. My passions include Film making, reading, and listening to music. I recently discovered I enjoy painting, and creative writing as well. I was an active member of my schools student council and girl’s leadership clubs. So if you have any questions on how to get involved in school, i have some great ideas :) This summer I worked as an intern at my church where I got to plan and lead kids’ day camps, work with the less fortunate at the Whalley strip, and use my creativity to improve the decor of our church. i'm really into Diy's so feel free to ask me about room or dorm decor for great prices! I'm also into hairstyling and I've been making my own hair since I was 14. My final year of high-school I was given the honour to be my schools valedictorian. It was a challenging task because I was involved in numerous programs at my school and was working hard to maintain my grade point average. i have some great tips on time management and how to combat stress during your final year!   Through that experience i learned the power of persistence and positivity. Because to really make an impact you must fully believe in what you are doing, and refuse to give up until you see results.

I will respond to questions as quickly as possible! and I'm a very open minded person so don"t be shy :)

Is dating while in university a distraction? 
The balance of spending quality time with your soulmate and being on top of your studies sounds challenging, but why not blend the two? Although at times my boyfriend can be distracting, he also can be a helpful sidekick. 

Being in a long-term relationship in university, I have experienced both the positive and negative effects of being in a relationship on my studies. I am not going to lie, there have been times that I have rushed through assignments or skipped class in order to spend more time with my boyfriend. However, as long as you don’t forget about your classes completely and make sure your priorities are in check, dating doesn’t have to be a distraction. Relationships are only as distracting as you let them be and can have benefits. My boyfriend and I work off each other strengths and help each other during our struggles. He is someone I can bounce ideas off of, knowing I will get an honest answer. How I see it, having a significant other is just like having a best friend who is always there for you through the stresses of university. Sometimes distractions are worth the payoff.

Friends, dating, ex's, and the social norms of university
It is worth mentioning that I've been at a private school since grade 6 all the way to graduation. That school had about 100 students and none of us really talked to each other too much since every grade had few people. (each grade had like an average of 10-20 kids). The times that I've ever dated were online and mostly kept it online since the school was that small and I didn't really bother learning how to socialise. I am looking to start university in September, and dating is a concern to me because of basic human biology. Is it advisable to date in university if you are easily distracted and emotionally clingy? 

The university that I plan to go to also has an ex-girlfriend of mine... So I'm not sure if it is a good idea to go there. I just don't want to go there to see her and be reminded. Or worse, see her with someone. I spoke to a friend about this and he told mt that I was overrating and I probably won't see her anyway. Is this worth considering though? If I saw her making out with a guy or something a day before my final exam, I would 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% fail it because of the emotional distraction. 

As I mentioned earlier, I'm not very social. If someone comes up to me and talks to me, I'll happily befriend them, but how often does that really happen? My guess is if I want friends, I'll have to join a club, find people with mutual hobbies and go from there, but maybe I'm wrong.
