Free for all works better for some, prudishness works better for others. Sometimes what works best changes in the course of a person's lifetime, and can go either way.

Not sure why this is hard to figure out.

JackieRabbit: Rapmaster2000: You'll likely get divorced from anyone you married from college. Enjoy yourself. You can't do college twice.

There's no evidence to support this claim. In fact, college educated people have a lower divorce rate than the general population. Educated people who wait until they are a bit older to marry have the lowest divorce rate. And you are far more likely to meet the right person in college than afterward. This is why so many people have difficulty finding a spouse after they get out into the "real world." All of the couples I know who I know will never divorce met in college.

Consider, too, that you never make friends like the ones you make in college or before. So, you are dead-on right that you only go to college once and you need to make the most of it. It is a time when we are free of most parental encumbrances and have the freedom to explore ourselves and find our own path through life. It really isn't the time for "true love." But if you do meet Mr. or Mrs Right, have fun with them, too, and worry about "the relationship" later.


I have a collection of anecdotes that is completely opposite of your collection of anecdotes so your argument is invalid and I win.

So... the vast majority of the university vs. a cowardly, thinly veiled evangelical propaganda group.

How can you respect a group that feels the need to lie by omission about its religious underpinnings? In reality, this group is probably like the other tiny evangelical/conservative college groups at Yale - a bunch of stuffy weirdo prudes in bow ties preying upon socially isolated Asian students who are looking for acceptance and a social outlet.

This will have about as much impact at Yale as a McDonald's career fair.

My guess is not many guys get casual sex so it would be the half dozen or so of the richest, tallest guys on campus. A few jocks. And the 80% of female students who want to hook up with them hoping to get pregnant showing up at the Sex Week event and getting any.

The true love people are pretty much the sour grapes crowd who wish they belonged the the first crowd.

Oh yeah! Oh Yeah! Well your father was a hamster and your mother smelt of elderberries. The only anecdote I used was about my personal experience with friends who have been married for 30 years and all of whom met in college. As for the rates of divorce being lower for educated people and those who marry later, those are well established facts. So I take win back.

You poor bastard. You can get a divorce for that in most states you know.

My wife is almost as horny as I am and can usually be convinced on the rare times when she isn't.

What a weird quote. So... the hook up culture is silent? Or too loud and thus why they had to do their "alternative"?

Seems from the website that he's a professional Catholic who has aspirations of being a Republican political hack after graduation. Can't be a Douchepublican heavy hitter if you don't use serious-sounding buzz phrases like "hook-up culture."

I'm convinced that some cruel admin is playing a joke on us. That or we both managed to read the S.. .eek pattern and some how grab the "Tr" from True and come up with some sort of S.... Trek, and parse it that way. Makes no sense, but at least I wasn't alone

Funny you should mention that. It may actually be something she's taking. Hormonal supplements and other medications that screw with brian chemistry can have that as a symptom.

For example, Mrs. Argh lost her libido to a particular type of BC back in the day (Yaz IIRC). The difficulty is getting someone whose libido is low to admit it and finding a doctor who will treat it as an actual issue.

Sure, you're right on education, but I don't see how that has anything to do with the marriage success rate of college educated people who married someone they met in college vs. college educated people who married someone they didn't meet in college.

If you told me the sky was blue you'd be right, but it wouldn't tell me whether or not I should get married to someone I met in college.

Actually, funny you should mention it.... my wife admits she has a low libido (now), but just doesn't care. I've asked her to see a doctor about it, and she just said it's something she's got to deal with. She says it's just the Prozac and her age, but she was on Prozac when we met, and it didn't stop her from wanting it almost as much as me. Hell, for awhile, she almost had me convinced that the problem was my drive is too high. I've realized her problem is she just doesn't care.

Yeah, except I'VE got to deal with it. I have just basically quit even trying. I figure if I just take care of myself, then the rare occasion she's in the mood is a bonus. It wasn't always like this, and I am just done with asking her what's wrong, trying to improve things... The old adage is true - men have sex to feel close emotionally, women have sex when they feel close emotionally.

I told her I think we need a date night; one night when we go eat (even jack in the box is fine, hell, it's about the person), catch a movie, walk the mall, something, just the two of us for a few hours. She said last night that she thinks she needs to be courted. I want to be treated more like a husband than a freakin' meal ticket.

Do that. Anything worth doing is worth the effort. Time together without other commitments looming never hurts.

Until we narrowed it down to a medication effect we were down from several times a week to twice a month if I didn't nag for it. I started to run the Internet out of free porn by the end of that six months. She also had to switch doctors three times to find one who considered dead libido as a symptom. Difficulty, that doctor turned out to be a shiatty OB who delivers only at a shiatty hospital. That only became clear way too late. That's also off topic...
