And I am assuming you are think ahead a couple of years. I had a mad crush on an optometrist intern that fgsve me an eye exam (cleverly, I kept perfectly quiet about it and avoided any chance of speaking or whatever). In fact, we made up many nicknames for the place to avoid saying it. For example, I had a girlfriend that I met while volunteering for a Young Life weekend for the junior high kids.And then there’s the dating scene.“There is a certain type of girl that comes to West Point, and it’s not that they aren’t the kind of girl I’d be interested in, but there’s also so many more guys than girls on this campus,” Josh divulged.Finding girls to hang out with or casually hook up with isn’t easy when “everyone knows everyone.” Gossip is magnified.
People can write a short blurb about themselves if they want, but many choose against this.
Drinking rules are strict at West Point, and the campus has very strict security, so partying is a challenge.“Older cadets have high disposable incomes, so there’s been a lot of weekends where we get a hotel room or rent an apartment suite and go out to the bars in Manhattan,” Josh explained.
On the weekends they aren’t in the city, cadets will visit other schools in the area.
“Going on pass” is pretty much what it sounds like — cadets are given privileges to leave campus for the weekend and they are not required to be back until Sunday night at 7 p.m.
The older cadets are, the more pass privileges they are allowed, which means that upperclassmen leave campus on the weekends more often than not.
With Valentine’s Day here, and matters of the heart on the brain, I can’t help but think about how dating apps — Tinder and Bumble to name a couple— have changed the dating game.
