A Little More Than A Friend Requestby Avery Barnes on Aug, 27 2012
Dating at CAL has taught me one thing, “the odds are good, but the goods are odd.” If you’re like me, blind dates, random hook-ups, or meeting the nice guy your friend wants to introduce you to, is awkward. The bottom line is, most guys no longer randomly ask girls on dates, and if they do, we girls usually assume they are creepers. So how exactly does a girl go about finding a nice guy without seeming overly desperate or flaunting all her goods down frat row? Heck if I know, but two Columbia University students may have found a solution to all of our love life dilemmas: DateMySchool.com.
I know what you’re thinking, “Online dating? In college? This girl is definitely going to be a single crazy cat lady for the rest of her life.” But don’t be too sure people (besides I’m highly allergic to cats so that option is out). DateMySchool.com is unlike all other online dating sites, it’s geared only towards college students, that means you!
Everyone needs a verified college email address to join, and nobody has to know you’re using an online dating site unless you want them to. That’s right, your DateMySchool.com profile can be completely anonymous, just include the information you want others to see and filter the people who can view your profile. DateMySchool.com allows you to filter through profiles by age, sex, schools, departments, etc. so you find exactly who you’re looking for. This website allows you to have as much privacy as you want, you can block anyone, and even invite that cute guy from your math class to make a profile anonymously. And again, no one has to know (not even Google). Your berkeley.edu email address is safe from the world and all future employers.
So come on, stop Facebook stalking your ex-boyfriend, open a new tab, and get proactive! This site has helped tons of students from top universities on the east coast find boyfriends/girlfriends/friends/cute dates, and over 300 UC Berkeley students are already signed up, you’re just one click away.
