College is not the time for the "Relationship Guy"

To the editor:

I would like to respond to the March 29 edition of Sex and the 'Seo, as I think it is an unfair representation of men's mentality. College-age guys, meaning those in the age of 18-22 years, are at a considerable landmark in their lives. They have just left home and have found a world of responsibility thrust upon them.

This is overbearing for many due to immaturity and so they follow a care-free "Hollywood" lifestyle which allows escape from responsibility. This includes not dating, as it always leads to more responsibility whether you want it or not. This lifestyle comes in many degrees, but for many men, it always avoids some types of responsibility for the sake of other kinds.

However, this isn't the end of the story. College is also a time of growth for all students and especially guys. You're going to find that as guys grow older and acquire the title of men, many will turn to face reality. This is when more of "The Relationship Guy" shows up. The key to remember is that guys always mature slower than women, and as maturity grows, so does a sense that its time to start finding a partner. However, for the most part, you won't find this unless you're looking at older men. If you're patient, maybe that young guy down the hall will grow up into something you would like to date.
