Veronica Pangles, a 24-year-old recent graduate of American University, has had her share of dating relationships and dating disasters during her time as a college student. As a working graduate, however, things in the dating world are a little different.
Here’s what she had to say about how to woo this working graduate:
CM: How do you think dating in college and dating after college will differ?
V: I think it will be less work trying to weed out potential dates from a big sea of people because you’ll either be working or continuing your education, and it’s there that you will be surrounded with like-minded individuals who share your interests.
CM: What is the main thing you look for in a potential partner?
CM: What is your number one turn off conversation topic?
V: Juvenile humor. I’m not really a fan of bathroom jokes—save it for the frat house.
CM: What is your favorite pick-up line?
V: If you’re using a pick-up line then you’re either in high school or college, meaning you’re too young and immature for me. Sorry.
CM: What is the strangest thing anyone has ever done or said when trying to pick you up?
V: During my sophomore year, one of the incoming freshmen came up to me and asked if he could be my cub.
CM: Is it better for them to be bold or mysterious when trying to pick you up?
V: Bold, if you have no confidence in yourself then I’m not interested.
CM: How do you let down someone you’re uninterested in?
V: I tell a white lie and say that I have a boyfriend.
CM: What tells more about a person’s sexuality how they dance, dress or kiss?
V: Hmm, this is a little tricky because it may not be applicable to all, but I’ll go with dance because if you got the moves, then you got the moves.
