    As long as you don't mind real work and real stress, post college is significantly better than college (even with all the parties and not-studing-time). Again, assuming you get a job that pays well and that you enjoy. I imagine life sucks compared to college if you work in a job that doesn't fulfill you in any way.

    Exactly, I find having an income, and the old stupid saying, "Work hard, play hard" is a fine way to live life. Especially if you settle in a place you like. New York City everyday is a party of sorts. The weekends are fulfilling and I find it much better than being in broke limbo-land.

    PatrickBOOTH - that's because you're now a rich successful republican with great hair. OP may not be so (un)lucky.

    The title almost made me cry. Short answer, kinda. If you really want a social life after college, you really need to work for it.

    The rest is could go either way. If he's not rich, but happy, then he is not a Republican. However, if he's not rich and unhappy, he could be a Republican.

    My bet is that he's an apathacrat

    To OP: If you want to get wasted and have sex every weekend, live/go to campus dorm parties. Transfer or not, just try and hang out at campus dorm parties and you'll start having fun?

    I can't wait to graduate from college lol....can actually work full time and make money instead of paying for college.

    Why have sex only on the weekends? :confused: I had sex on Monday and that was actually very out of character for me.

    If he doesn't live at a dorm, might be hard to constantly meet up. My friend had sex with a chick, brought her back to her dorm, and his girlfriend at the time saw him. Both girls didn't want to have sex with him no more [​IMG]

    sex too much -> grades drop [​IMG]

    NOBODY CARES! I thought you had figured that out by now and moved on to a forum where people actually share your interests. (self-pitty, being a pussy, ect)

    Good job. Join clubs, go to parties, bury the self pity deep down, and you'll be fine.

    life after college isnt the same.
    if you have 2-3 friends you can call out thats a lot.
    everone is busy with wives and family, or significant others.
    learn when you can from your friends and when they go dont worry, let them go.
    its not that people dont like you anymore its that they are more absorbed in their own thing.

    if you are single, count your self being cut out of couple get togethers, and if you arent count your single friends to stop calling you out any more.
    tis life. be happy, and be nice to your parents while you are around them.
