College is the best time of your life. Girlfriends are great and all but I definitely wouldn't advise anyone to settle down during college, not even for a semester. Take full advantage of the student lifestyle and college events and spread your wings. Are things beginning to get a teeny bit strenuous with your college girlfriend? Here's the signs that you need to dump her!
1. She becomes far too clingy with you.
Guys, if your girlfriend starts becoming too clingy and overly-attached to you, it's time to give her the boot! You don't want a girl who NEEDS to know where you are, who you're with and what you're doing every second of every day. Chicks like that will make you claustrophobic!
2. Someone better recently became available to you.
That girl of your dreams or the one who you've had a crush on since school recently broke up with her boyfriend and is back on the market! Nowadays, you're a lot more confident, and you've grown into your body nicely - you're not that scrawny little kid anymore. Maybe you could be in with a shot? You're now looking at your girlfriend and kind of wishing you had better!
3. You're failing your college exams.
If you're falling behind in college, failing exams and missing assignment deadline dates because of all them late nights you're spending watching Netflix with your other half, it's time to pull the eject cord.
4. She shows up at your house uninvited.
This is the worst type of girlfriend, in my opinion. You know the type. She organises things you won't want to do without clearing it with you first, loves to talk and never to listen, bosses everybody around and thinks that she can just turn up on your doorstep whenever she damn well pleases?!? You've got to give this girl the boot sooner rather than later, or you'll learn the hard way.
5. You don't see your friends anymore, and she sees hers less too.
You see your guy friends less and less and start spending more and more time with her. And it's not even good time together - you're sitting in watching mundane TV, drinking a bottle of wine and listening to her yap on about her latest ridiculous fight with her best friend. You really don't care about any of her boring relationship problems, because you know too well that she'll be back tomorrow telling you how she's so happy they made up and that they're the best of friends again.
6. She starts talking about marriage or babies.
Guys, this is an immediate red warning flag for you all! If you ever hear the words "baby" or "marriage" dropped in your college relationship, it's time to hit the bricks because the shit is going to hit the fan. This is the LAST thing that should be on your mind as a college student and you really don't need to be dealing with that in your late teens or early 20s.
7. You've started to fight more regularly.
This is the first sign that your relationship is heading for the scrapyard. During the honeymoon phase of your relationship you never fought, but now you fight more days than you don't. Nobody needs this shit - neither of you! Are you the Ronnie and Sammi couple from Jersey Shore? Because if so, it's time you cut your losses and move on. They say life is too short? F*ck that, College life is too short!
8. She tells you that she wants to stop taking the pill.
Your brain should be reaching the "nuclear meltdown" level here! This is the LAST thing you want to hear! You're going to have to wear condoms all the time now (unless you already do) with the added worry that you could knock her up with one slip-up!
9. You're spending too much time together.
You should have a fair grasp of what "TOO much time together" entails, and I'm sure your friends won't have a problem telling you either! If you're spending more time with your girlfriend than you're without in college, that's way too much! Think baby steps, and besides, nobody wants to be in a relationship with that level of commitment during their college years! That's crazy - you're missing out on so much!
10. She recently started farting in front of you.
I really shouldn't have to say anything more on this matter, and I won't...
11. You find her alone in your room, playing around with your condoms.
She may or may not have a thumb tac in her hand! Guys, you should run for the bloody hills if you have this psycho chick as your girlfriend! I mean it - get out of there before you're trapped for good!
12. The sex has gone flat.
Sex is key in any relationship. I don't care how old you are or how long you've been together. In my opinion, you should be banging on a regular basis and trying new things. The sex should never go stale in your relationship. If it does, then that's one relationship that I don't want to be in and I won't hesitate for a moment to blow the thing up!
13. The topic of you moving in together has been thrown around.
She's not-so-subtly brought up the idea of you moving in together soon. Don't entertain this idea - you will regret it! Self-destruct now while you still have the chance!
