Where to Look For Winter Love

Where to Look For Winter Love

Madeline Harrington | Her Campus

December 22, 2010

The weather might be colder, but there is no reason your love life needs to cool off over winter break as well. Yes, you’ll be home for a month, away from the exciting college parties, the hot guy who lives down the hall, and any other prospects you might have lined up, but never fear! Not only will your heart go on, the break could be a time to try something new, meet some new people in your own town, and have a lot of unexpected fun.

So who’s the lucky guy going to be?

If it’s someone you already know, you probably went to high school with him and he’s probably one of the following three:

The High School Sweetheart
Remember that guy you dated in high school? The one your parents hated but you insisted you were meant to be with? Yeah, that one. Well, odds are he’s still around and he’s probably grown up a bit since you last saw him. So why not shoot him a text and ask him what he’s up to? Check out a friend’s party together and rekindle the flame, even if only for the month you’re home. College experiences have turned you into a whole new you, so show it off, and find out who he’s become since graduation.

The Guy You Could Never Have
The worst part of high school was lusting after the hottest guy in school who I knew I would never have a shot with. At least not back then. But things are different now, for everyone. College has made you a confident, educated, exciting woman, and winter break is your chance to show him what he missed out on for those four years. Talk to some friends, visit some old high school haunts, and you’ll probably cross paths. Then go on and talk to him. Confidence is a turn on.

The One You Never Noticed?
I hate to break it to you, sweetheart, but you aren’t the only one who did some growing up since high school – all the nerdy, awkward, quiet guys have grown up too, and some of them have blossomed into adorably awkward hot guys who have wonderful personalities. One of my best guy friends from high school was pretty geeky, and I never looked twice at him, despite how sweet he was. But when I came home after a year of college, he’d grown four inches and produced a stomach I could have washed my clothes on. Moral of the story: never completely disregard anyone, especially the nice guys. And open your eyes – some of them have really matured. Just don’t break their hearts when winter break comes to a close.
