College can bring on a lot of confusing emotions. Sometimes you can be lead into some uncharted territory sexually that can only lead you down a bad path. We're here to help though. Make sure that you steer clear of going home with any of these people at college.
I know you think someone in a position of power is hot, but trust us. This is not a good idea. One of two things will happen as a result of hooking up with an RA. They'll try and start dating you more consistently, and no one will invite you over because they don't want you bringing the narc around, or you'll break their heart and they'll spend the rest of the semester trying to bust you for drinking in your dorm.
This is something everyone at one time or another thinks is a great idea and every single time is wrong. College is about moving forward and listening to Blink 182 in her mom's Sienna Minivan while you make out and drink Miller Lite isn't going to help you in your future at all. At least at college when you make out in the back of a minivan listening to blink 182 you can say you're just doing it ironically.
After she left your friend Kevin she hooked up with two other guys right away. Third time's a charm, right? WRONG! Stay away from that stuff! There's no sense in burning the bridge with your best friend that you will inevitably have to see again. Even if it's just out of how awkward that would be.
"Oh, we were just stupid and drunk and it was just a one time thing." Yeah, I'm sure, now have fun sleeping less than 6 feet from each other in your respective beds until May. That won't be awkward at all.
Aside from having to see them again, this one has another thing hanging in the balance: grades. Let's face it, college is when a lot of people learn how to be better at sex. And if you're smart you chose a lab partner who's smarter than you to do most of the work. This means that if you don't do well in bed he may just go ahead and let you fail.
You think your professor sounds like a sexy authority figure at night. But in the light of day, he's probably just a sad 48 year old man. When the shit hits the fan (and it will), he's lost his tenure and none of your classmates respect you.
We know it's cool to hook up with the athletes at college, but think about it. Does this really count the same way the baseball or football team would count? (No.) You know they already hold themselves a little bit above everyone else. Even if you did bring them home they'd be more concerned about their pleated khakis getting wrinkled on the floor than anything that you two were about to do. Let this one go.
You would think this is obvious. Just because you didn't hear her sniffle for 20 minutes before you asked her to come back doesn't mean she's fine. The sick kid is always sick, with small patches of the virus going dormant. So don't hookup with her unless you really need a reason to stay home from that test you have tomorrow.
On second thought, if you ever actually did find yourself in any of these situations, it's college, just go for it and deal with the consequences later.
