  • Irony. There’s a great dating pool here but it appears most people are either into sex only, too busy with work or frightened about trying a relationship to find love. FOLL

      As a ’15, this is probably the most insightful description I have seen of Princeton’s dating scene.

      Of course there are exceptions, but I think this captures accurately the lives of most people here.

      We are going to regret not taking advantage of so many dating options in college. My recent graduate brother in the working world only has married people around him now. In the spirit, ask THAT person out for Coffee, frozen yogurt, bubble tea. Why not?! You could find love and, in the long run, love is above all else

            Let’s trace the steps in this post:
            1) Attack for something pedantic and inconsequential to distract from my points
            2) Questioning of reading comprehension skills
            3) Backtracking attempt to change meaning of original post after the fact
            4) Random condescension intended to elicit feelings of exclusion or inferiority
            5) Irrelevant ad hominem attack with appeal to meme-obsessed audiences

              Again, buttfucker 420 is trying to misdirect with some drivel about world peace and continuing backtrack to change what he originally said. Furthermore, he is trying to claim his single-handed posting of the same thing over and over is a “movement.” Pathetic.

      Are you aware the Dr. Nancy Snyderman if NBC news lives in Princeton? She and her crew were supposed to be in quarantine due to exposure from working with a cameraman in Africa that actually has ebola. Yet she was seen in her Mercedes outside of Princeton restaurant violating the quarantine which the CDC has subsequently made mandatory. Surely the risk to Princeton residents is very very minute, however the risk is real now due to global international travel.

        if you are really concerned, educate yourself on protective measures to ease your mind, worry about the people who are actually suffering (consider donating!), then refrain from making jokes based on a total lack of perspective. so many people are dying and living in ongoing terror, it’s not a little blip of a news story to make jokes about when you see the headline, i just wish people would realize this and have some respect.

        of course people are free to be ignorant and tasteless, but others are then free to call them out!

      They’re all around. Just ask the cute guy in precept if he wants to go on an ice cream or coffee date sometime. Or maybe the one in the club you’ve been going to every once in a while. Most people aren’t against having relationships and dates, but many of them are just as nervous as you are to try.

      2) Why the hell are there so many fratstars here when Greek life isn’t even big? They don’t even live in their houses! Is it the eating clubs that are responsible?

      3) Is it here specifically or is it like this everywhere?

            LOL. This shit is too funny. I happened to meet a buff, 6 foot tall blonde dude who was a CS major interning at LinkedIn this summer. He was one of the smartest and yet party-hardest people I knew. There’s no reason to think that being sociable (sometimes to the point of risky behavior) is somehow mutually exclusive with being intelligent. If you’d read any modern literature at all, you would have known that intellectualism and YOLO-carpe-diem lifestyles are completely compatible.

            I really dislike how nerds always have to make it an “us and them” thing when it’s really a continuous spectrum. The only way to really get to know it is to see it yourself. I’m assuming you’re from a small-town public school where all the loud, wild degenerates ended up going to prison or flipping burgers. Well, all I have to say is that I’ve met way intellectually interesting fratstars in my experiences than cookie-cutter nerds.

They have cultivated leadership skills, confidence, charisma, superior physicality and the ability to skate by taking easy SOC classes and becoming the CEO of a startup run on the backs of EE grads.

      IMO, if you want the relationship to last, you need to address both problems: his infidelity, your lack of trust. (hmm, the latter sounds like it could be caused by the former — imagine that.) so you might as well address it. don’t focus on which is morally worse. focus on tackling the issues and moving on (either separately or together. that’s a call both of you have to make). and good luck. I’m sorry, it’s a sucky situation.

          If you feel guilty for correctly suspecting infidelity then there is an obvious asymmetry in the relationship. This asymmetry arises 99 times out of 100 as a result of emotional manipulation aka abuse. In a relationship when one partner does not have a clear upper hand you could say “hey I noticed you’re cheating. Was this your expectation for our relationship? It wasn’t mine. ” Clearly OP does not feel this freedom.

        trivialize “abuse” in this way! if “abuse of trust” is a thing then you’re also doing it by snooping on him, which is obviously silly, so let’s just not call it abuse!

      A relationship starts with 100% trust. Post infidelity it is something less than 100%. It will never be 100% again. Trust is broken. Complete trust is lost. Doubt that’s salvageable, sorry.

    • Anonymous 10:43 pm on October 9, 2014 | Reply

      Doesn’t matter. You’ve both violated each other’s trust and each other. It’s not going to work out anyway (well it’s not very likely). The only way it could work out is if you confront him and disclose everything. Neither of you is going to get off easy in this–especially him. If your relationship is meant to be salvaged then it will be. Otherwise what does it matter that you spied on him or that he cheated on you if you guys were going to break up ultimately

            Princeton left me less sure of what I want to do in life than I was when I started. Depression and self-doubt that developed over the past years have made it really difficult to 1) find jobs that I’d consider myself qualified for/capable of, 2) put myself out there with job applications.

            So yeah. That’s largely why I don’t have a job.

        lol i am SO tired of this ^ comment. you can put a lot of effort into meeting people, showing up and participating, hanging out etc etc and still feel as though you’re not really part of the crowd, even though its the place you felt most comfortable going out to for all of freshmen and sophomore years.

        MAYBE the op didn’t try to make friends with people — but that probably is /not/ the case. most people who join the club really do give it a solid shot before they realize something doesn’t feel right. if after an entire month of eating 3 or 4 meals there a day, partying, hanging, doing yoga or henna or whatever you still feel a sense of discomfort in whatever club — then maybe it’s just not what the person is looking for.

        i agree with you oc in that it’s probably not terrace’s fault. terrace is definitely not an especially cliquey place. but it is really not fair to go and blame op for not trying hard enough or whatever the fuck you’re trying to say here.

        • Exact situation I was in 2:11 pm on October 6, 2014 | Reply

          Looking back, I probably gave up too quickly, but my experiences at Terrace were that the members did little to include me beyond introducing themselves. A large part of it was probably a clash in interests. The conversations at Terrace often seemed to revolve around philosophy and literature at more sophisticated levels than I was ready to just jump into, which made it hard to feel like I was involved in the discussion. At Quad, first conversations with new people were a bit more low-key (“What’s your major?” “How are your classes going?” etc.), which helped to form some connections with people before getting into more serious topics.

          My views on Terrace are fairly uninformed, and I joined at the point where the membership suddenly exploding probably put some extra pressure on the social infrastructure, but I do know that Quad is one of the most welcoming and chill communities I’ve seen at Princeton.

      I feel the same way. Maybe my perception has just changed, but the club has definitely changed over time. It’s now much more of the too-cool-for-you stoner bro stereotype than it used to be. Even though there are some people I really like in Terrace, what I previously said combined with the price increase means I’m dropping in the spring.

    • '14 7:36 am on October 5, 2014 | Reply

      Here’s the thing: joining a club where you know no one is a bad idea. Clubs are great to expand your friend circle. You know, you are friends with some people in the club, you meet your friends’ acquaintances and find out that they’re pretty cool, and you start chatting to a few people at breakfast. Pretty soon you’ve made new friends… but it takes time and it’s hard to get started without a base. I absolutely loved Terrace, but I found it pretty hard to make new friends for the first few months. I was just lucky that I had a bunch of friends from freshman year who had joined. By senior year I hardly hung out with this freshman group of friends, but it would have been lonely without them.

      Also… I would characterize Terrace as people who hate social-climbing, not people who hate cliques. You’re going to gravitate towards some people more, and that’s how it is. If some people seem friendly, then start trying to talk to them. Start off with people in classes with you, so that you have something to talk about. Go to more terrace events, and you’ll have even more to talk about. Good luck, and I hope you find your place!

    • '14 2:30 pm on October 5, 2014 | Reply

      I wish you all luck. I think Terrace’s biggest problem now is its size; you can’t *not* have cliques when you have so many members.
      FWIW, I hated Terrace my first couple of months, and then things turned around. I ended up having some really awesome friendships come out of Terrace, and in the end I loved it. I say this because, well, it’s still early; I hope that you too will find your place in the club.

    • "Hi, can I sit with you guys?" 6:27 pm on October 6, 2014 | Reply

      As someone who has taken time off, and came back, I knew only a couple of people, and only superficially. I know that being outgoing and social is hard. It is however something that will help you in many ways.

      Terrace has always been a place of refuge for many reasons. One of them is that it’s OK to be weird, if that doesn’t hurt others around you. That includes “awkward turtles”, who just don’t understand how others talk to people effortlessly.

      Try, and we will accept you. Try, even if it’s hard. The benefits are worth it.

        The student body is filled with exceptionally bright people, but you are all still teenagers to young adults. Your brains aren’t matured enough to really think clearly about consequences, no matter how smart you are. So it isn’t surprising that some exceptionally stupid things occur.

          Even after teenagerhood/young-adult-ness smart people still do stupid things. Note, for example, the UNC physics professor currently in jail in Argentina for smuggling drugs for a girlfriend (“girlfriend”) he met online.

          So I agree with you that college-age people are more likely to do exceptionally stupid things, but we do not have a monopoly on the ability to fuck up our lives.

              Any intelligent Christian will admit they’re a hypocrite. They believe in a moral standard that’s impossible for man to achieve completely and they often fail, some more spectacularly than others. Condemning them for falling short of the moral standard they set for themselves, though, is no different than me condemning you for not having a 4.0 – you know that’s what you /should/ have and yet you don’t, but the fact that you don’t doesn’t mean your academic pursuits are inherently wrong, just that they, like everything else we do, is imperfect.

      Next time, just rape her. Do it with confidence. It’s much more efficient and nobody will bat an eye. Rape isn’t nearly as creepy, it’s commonplace. There’s not enough room in the DP to print the names of all the rapists. Your accuser will feel ashamed and the university will assume you have some serious lawyers in the family and deal with it kid gloves. It won’t get any farther than that. Rape accusations are a badge of honor, anyways. I hear you need at least 3 to get a job at any bulge bracket firm.

      But stick a camera over the stall for 2 seconds and the DP will print your name, and the University will go into full Bogeyman lockdown. The powers that be will assume that your are a spineless chump and crush you. The prosecutor will scapegoat you and pretend they are being tough on sexual predators and crush you. You’ll spend 5 years in an overcrowded prison with all the other people our society can’t quite figure out how to deal with.

      I leave you with a quote by Stroke Yoself Stallin’ : “One peeping Tom is a serious societal blight which needs to be eradicated. A fifth of all college women being sexually assault victims is a statistic “

      as a victim of sexual assault i feel much more comfortable being able to lock the door and have it be a women-only space, but somehow i feel like it’s considered anti-feminist of me to express this?
