Creighton guys’ No. 1 complaint: Not enough hot chicks. Creighton girls’ No, 1 complaint: Not enough decent guys. An unofficial slogan is “Creighton University: Lowering Women’s Standards Since 1970.” Everyone seems to whine and moan about the dating scene. The real problem, however, is that an abundance of attractive males and females are wandering around campus, but they’re so used to seeing one another all the time that they can’t fathom approaching anyone because if rejected, he or she will probably be seated next to the other person in Spanish class next semester. The other problem has to do with a clash of maintenance levels. One male student says never to trust a white girl in Nebraska with an orange glow in February. It’s too far from any break for her to have just gotten back from Cabo—it just isn’t natural. Likewise, beware of the buff bio boys. No one gets pecs the size of a pony keg from dissecting small mammals.
There are some girls at Creighton who meet their husbands here, and there are some guys at Creighton looking for a quick hookup. But, by and large, students are here to study, with dating as an afterthought. Anyone's dream of being a big dater is generally quickly quashed. Girls give up on guys fast after realizing they greatly outnumber the opposite sex, and guys give up on girls after they realize that they simply are not interested.
