First Post!

I am new to this world of blogging (so please be kind!). I thought I would start with a little bit about myself and the things I might be posting. I am 21 years old and am currently a student at St. Mary’s University studying Psychology. I love learning and have always had a passion for it, so it seemed only natural that I went to school for as long as I could. However I am graduating in July (currently writing a post for the do’s and dont’s of graduation) and now I have to enter the ‘real’ world. I have decided to keep a blog so I can continue with my writing and learning! I’m sure there will be several posts to come of, shopping hauls, pictures of cupcakes, my cats and occasionally the nerdy ones about psychology (but they will be interesting, I promise).

I am one of those calvin-and-susie-25895people whose mere existence can be a threat to some peoples worldview…

This is something that seems to be a doctrine in certain Christian circles, but I’ve also encountered it in other places that were completely unchristlike, and actually have thought it  to be misogynist worldliness for a long time. And moreover, everything I know in my life…

100 Men On “Would You Date Someone Who Slept With You On The First Date?”

Really Interesting, what would you do?

Thought Catalog

I was watching reruns of Millionaire Matchmaker this morning and Patti Stanger kept beating people over the head about not having sex before monogamy because “men lose interest” or whatever. I’ve heard that this is a crock, but I’ve also been in the presence of men who say women who do that are easy. In an attempt to put this question to bed (ha ha) I talked to 100 guys to see what they had to say. Tally at the bottom.

1. Jason, 26, straight

I would love to have sex on the first date BUT if it happens I will probably look at her in a different way. I like girls who can hold themselves and value themselves more than the average ones so when I’m with one I can feel that I have caught something rare or something hard to find.

2. Jonathan, 23, straight

No guys think…
