1. The player
The typical player is hot and he knows it—he’s managed to snag a girl from almost every organization on campus. He’s loads of fun, but he has commitment issues. Best to steer clear.
2. The gym rat
This is the “I have three protein shakes a day. Just trying to bulk up,” kinda guy. He loves to brag about how much he can lift; he may have even mentioned how he could probably bench press you. “Probably.”
3. The brainiac
They’re the best person to sit next to in class because they always know what’s going on (so while you’re online shopping, they’re scribbling notes). Pair up with them for some study dates and you won’t regret it.
4. The asshole
Of all the great guys you’ll meet at college, there will inevitably be a few jerks. If they look or act anything like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, run in the opposite direction.
5. The funny guy
Honestly, my goal in life is to find my very own Chandler Bing. Now taking applications, boys.
6. The sweetheart
Okay, maybe I want a mix of Chandler from Friends and Jim Halpert from The Office. Is that too much to ask for?
7. The bar-hopper
Here’s the guy you’ll always find dancing at the bar or playing pong at parties. Party on, brother.
8. The dad
Possibly the very best kind of college guy, the “dad” of the group always knows how to have a rockin’ good time. He can typically be found wearing sweaters, tube socks, and fanny packs without shame. Plus, the dad-jokes are endless.
9. The friendzoned
This poor guy, no matter how hard he tries, will never leave the friendzone. He’s an amazing friend to every girl he meets, but they’ll never think of him as more than a friend.
10. The fratty guy
From the moment this guy came out the womb, he was born to be a frat star. You always spot him on campus walking in his Sperry’s and salmon-colored shorts. He over-uses the word “dude” and “brah” and he represents his fraternity everywhere he goes.
11. Your best friends
Within all of these groups of men, you’ll find a special few that will become your very best friends. Whenever you need advice on other guys, or someone to go grab a burger with, you can call them. They’ll be there for you during the break ups, the failed exams, and everything in between. So shout-out to the men who make our lives better—we don’t know what we’d do without you.
