Discuss dating, relationships and foreign women.
It does seem as if college girls in the US are friendly and approachable at least generally speaking. I have been more comfortable approaching college girls and asking for their phone numbers as they are not as unfriendly and unapproachable as American women in general. Maybe the college atmosphere has something to do with it. College girls don't have that paranoid look on their face when you approach them. On most college campuses in America the girls outnumber the guys so the numbers are in the guys favor.

Agreed! However it's also highly dependent on the school, major, and classes. About 10 years ago I used to hang out with some friends at Cal Tech, they were EE majors and the school was seriously lacking in female gender students. At the time engineering majors had way too many guys. The school has attempted to fix the gender imbalance by lowering entrance requirements for women, but I suppose that's controversial.
As a general trend, there's a growing gender gap in American colleges where women are out-growing men in % ratio. Considering that women had traditionally married up the socio-economic ladder, this is going to cause similar problems facing black women college grads today. There's simply not enough black male college grads for them to marry.
College girls who move away from home for the first time (to dorms) often go through "wild" phases where they enjoy their newfound freedom to excess. I had a Viet ex-GF who went abroad to study in Japan, and within 3 months she went from a bookworm to partying at beer houses. If you're just looking to have fun, it works great and they're horny as hell. But don't expect a serious or long-lasting relationship.
For those currently in college, just look around and see which classes has a lot of girls, like badminton, art, pottery, etc. I was a business major and although there was many girls during day time classes, it's difficult to chat them up in business class unless if you happen to get them in your group. Art & dance classes were far easier.
Also, these days it's a lot easier to hit up girls for their e-mail or IM contact. When I was in college we chatted on ICQ all the time, these days I think most people use MSN. If you meet a girl in class and get her IM, you can continue to chat her up after class or semester. I actually prefer it over cel phone because you don't have the awkward silence period when you try to think of things to say.
There's also the popular social networking sites like Friendster, Facebook, Myspace, etc. Most of my friends are on them, though I'm not well versed with it and don't really care these days.
Dance classes are good so are acting classes and cooking classes. Usually the women outnumber men in these classes by a wide margin. Also getting involved with school activities is a good idea. When I was in college joining a frat was the BEST way to meet girls and get laid! I was never in a frat but some of the guys that were in a frat told me they would get laid like rock stars! Being in a frat gives you social proof and that's big to women. When I was in college I was able to meet lot's of girls through my friends and living in a dormitory was awesome when it came to making friends and meeting girls!! I would love to go back to college and live in a dormitory again even though I am in my thirties (I do look a lot younger, most people say I look like I am in my mid twenties). No wonder why so many people say college is the best years of your life!

You could still go back for grad school and take a dance class.
I made the mistake of going with University of Phoenix for my MBA. Bad choice... in hindsight I should have just bite the bullet to take GMAT and went back to CSUF instead.
The only part that I agree with in this thread is the part about the frat boys getting laid. That much is true.
But as for me, I preferred, and still prefer, my work in Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics and Statistics and Computers and Philosophy and Astronomy over stupid frat antics. So that's why I didn't join one.
Besides, the young Polish girls outclassed these stupid American college skanks in every imaginable criteria from looks to personality to everything in between.
Personally I am enrolled in college right now, and I find them more approachable than other girls, but only on a very superficial level. It's not like you are going to have a meaningful relationship of any kind with them, and in order to get laid you pretty much have to be in a frat or maybe on some sports team. At least that's how it goes at my college.
Truly, I had much more meaningful interaction with girls in Poland this summer when I went there for 2 weeks than I ever did during my entire time at college.

And actually I have had absolutely no chemistry for them for a year and a half now.
They have had chemistry for me when I get my power metal band together and they are all screaming at me and the rest of the band, but I don't really care because they are shallow and soulless, and really turn me off.
Yeah man, pretty much the same thing here. The girls are a little bit more approachable in college, but you're still not going to get very far. It's all about the image.
The hot girls in college are still going to be picky about who they date but most college girls will be more open to meeting guys in class and around campus. College girls are more approachable then girls are when they are out of school. There seems to be a friendly vibe on most college campuses that you don't find when you get out of college. I guess it's that 'community spirit' that is in the air on most college campuses. The funny thing is, that community spirit disappears once one gets out of school.
I would never brag about my experiences in college. Other than my first girlfriend, a Vietnamese girl, I never got laid in college, never even came close or gotten a date from there.
Sure girls would talk to me if I approached them, but it would be superficial small talk that went nowhere, a mere politeness. And if I asked them out somewhere, they'd always give excuses such as they don't have time or they have a boyfriend.
Dead end from every angle.
Of course I went to a business commuter school, but even if I was in an artistic school or took artistic classes, yeah I'd get along with the students better and have more in common with them, but I don't think my dating life would have been any different.

Well, for me, I don't like the typical American college girl. i just don't think that they're the right girl for me.
I'm more rather interested in weird, eccentric girls, because i somehow have a greater affinity with them, and I don't know why they show interest in me.
Well, the girl i'm interested in is anti-social, anti-social that the doesn't say hi to people that she knows while passing them in the halls, even when not in a hurry.
So basically, I kind of detest girls that fit into the stereotypes of American college girls, which is probably about 85-95% of girls who attend college, especially the stuck-up Asian American college girls.
Have you considered joining the anime/manga cosplay community? Lots of eccentric people there. I had many cosplay friends and dated a few about a decade back. Quite fun back then.
I do know a couple of girls who cosplay, and either I'm not interested in some of them or they have boyfriends and they're taken. Oh well, at least there's other types of eccentric girls out there.
Because its America, no one cares about after the girl parties it up and soils herself she can still find a sucker to marry her.

Students at my university keep getting bombarded with "date rape" this and "date rape" that. The campus police keeps making everyone panic with campuswide emergency alerts involving kidnapping and rape. What do you think all this does to being able to find a date in college?
