If you got mostly A’s, you should be dating a humanities/art major!
Congratulations! You should be dating a humanities major. These include bearded English majors, struggling artists and aspiring performers. You probably enjoy long discussions about literary fiction, checking out art at the Bundy Museum or watching esoteric Sidney Lumet films with your significant other. Humanities majors are awesome because they usually have great imaginations that can go a long way when planning dates, or even in the bedroom. But beware, insulting their favorite writer or artist could cause catastrophe for your relationship.
If you got mostly B’s, you should be dating a STEM major!
Congratulations! You should be dating a STEM major. If you’re not one, you probably don’t know that STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. You probably enjoy logical discussions, random YouTube videos about dry ice or have even developed an algorithm to find your soul mate. STEM majors are awesome partners since they are logical and can usually teach you something that will make you seem way smarter than you actually are. Always make sure to plan ahead with STEM majors so your relationship doesn’t get stuck in a lab with them.
If you got mostly C’s, you should be dating a social sciences major!
Congratulations! You should be dating a social sciences major. These include your favorite psychology/sociology double majors, philosophy majors, and fact-crazy history majors. You probably enjoy intense people watching, tracking social movements (from party to party) and diagnosing your friends. Social sciences majors will always know what you’re feeling, so you’ll never have to worry about miscommunication again. Be careful not to talk about things in a finite manner, or it might be the end of your relationship.
If you got mostly D’s, you should be dating a business major!
Congratulations! You should be dating a business major. Whether they have a concentration in marketing, accounting or global management, anyone you choose most likely looks good in a pants suit. You probably enjoy checking the stock market, figuring out new ways to make money and managing a group of people when you go out on the weekends. Dating business majors is fun, since their drive to be the best will always keep them at the top of their game. Make sure you don’t dress better than them on suit day, though, or you may not be the right fit.
