But I guess if you were applying to school literally in the middle of nowhere, especially a school with dubious gay credentials...
Okay, I'm still laughing.
My law school isn't in the middle of nowhere, but I'm surrounded by Jesusland (as in Liberty and Regent). At any rate, I never checked out any of those sites before applying Early Decision, and I still haven't checked them out for this area.
I don't have an iPhone. I do kind of, sort of, want a boyfriend though.
i'd imagine there to be a pretty large closeted fratty population at UVA...probably not your type (or is it?)
I'm going to plead the 5th here.
It's the ultra-closeted part that actually bothers me. I can understand why people don't want to tell their families sometimes (esp. b/c you don't get to pick your family and some people have some crazy families), but what kind of delusion do you have to be living under to join a frat and pretend you're straight. At Vandy, there was this closeted fratboy in [an ultra-Southern frat], and he was obsessed, to the point of being paranoid, with making sure people didn't find out. I always wondered why he wanted to do that to himself.
But yeah, I'm not really the hookups type.
"I just need to focus on school right now." At least, I've heard that line multiple times before, that coming out was more stress than staying in the closet and therefore coming out was not an option while taking school serious. Incredibly misguided, of course, but still common.
Then again, I doubt a Vandy UG frat boy was too concerned about academics.
Also, online dating is less sleazy than picking guys up in bars and much more inclined to lead to long-term relationships. Bars are for hook-ups, if that's what you want.
