With fresher’s week approaching for us UK folk soon I thought a brief advice topic would be in order. Obviously knowing considerably less about how the American university systems begin their semester, If a mod feels it does not apply to the American way of campus life feel free to move it to the UK section of the forum. (My knowledge is based mainly from the show Greek and other American campus based films, which no doubt have about as much accuracy as the film Gladiator , I digress)
Campus’ life is acknowledged mainly as that of a closed system, by this I mean Internal actions have considerably greater effect than things you do outside of the campus social circle. You have heard the six degrees of separation theory , well on campus it isn’t a theory it’s a fact. On top of that think three or four degrees instead. This will ultimately be the main factor that should affect your game
The different Social circles
Social circles on campus tend to be layered (yes like an onion). You can split it up into two distinct circles and a further layer.
Inner Circle: This is where the very close friends to people that most free time is spent with, outside of lectures, sports teams or other society based groups. Often they of course they happen to be in the same lectures etc but for logistical reasons they tend to live near to you or in the same ‘Halls of residence’ in the first year. (Most inner circles are established within the first year, people drift in an out but rarely are entire inner circles disbanded and reformed). Anything someone in your inner circle does you will generally find out about pretty quickly and everyone trusts each other.
Now this of course affects you when it comes to possible targets. If you close (anything above a #-close for arguments sake) someone in a girl’s inner circle, your chance of closing someone else in that circle is heavily reduced. Women are generally unwilling to break the trust of their inner circle as it has a ripple effect, soon they are known as the one that closes their best mates targets. Remember actions inside the closed campus systems have a greater affect and this is especially true of the inner circle. So chose your inner circle target wisely as it could be your only pick.
However there is a strong upside. Once you befriend a girl and she see’s you of high value. As long as it is clear to her nothing will happen between the two of you, your value sky rockets to everyone in her inner circle. You will be introduced as ‘that guy I told you about’ she will often even go as far as to play match maker. And when it comes to campus life her friends opinions matter more than ever before.
Outer Circle: This is the circle involving people you would meet up with on a night out say once a week or so but would not be spending all that much free time with. They may be on the same course, in the same society or people met through inner circle members for instance. Information shared in this circle tends to be more vague. Instead of he slept with Laura X last night it becomes ‘He slept with this hot blonde girl last night’.
This means that you tend to be free to close members sharing an outer circle as there is not the same level of trust or closeness. You won’t find that you go to kiss a girl and she says, oh but you already kissed another girl from Biology society, unless they are looking for an excuse and you cant blame campus life for that.
Girls may introduce you to their outer circle members however it is unlikely that they will have heard of you before. So the DHVing is all up to you.
The I’ve seen you layer: This covers most other people on the campus that you will interact with. You may have seen them around but never spoken to them for more than a minute in passing before.
Establishing your social circle
Establishing a good inner circle is key in fresher’s week if it’s your first year. The earlier in the university year it is, the easier it is to break to add to your inner circle. As in fresher’s week that is most people’s goal; to establish a strong inner circle.
Establishing an outer circle is best done through your course and societies. Join women dominated societies such as psychology soc in order to establish a target rich outer circle.
In general: Inner Circle’s save you having to DHV while Outer Circle’s save you having to open them.
Always look your best
When you go out to get milk in the morning at home and don’t really put effort into your appearance you don’t have the fear that someone will see your bedhead then later recognize you in a club that evening. On campus this will be the case, always try to look your best as the people that see you will no doubt see you again. All be it looking like you had been dragged through a hedge when she last saw you is a talking point, so is that awesome belt you were wearing.
Girls are well aware of how quickly reputation can spread in a closed system and they don’t want to gain the reputation as a slut. So expect lots of LMR for the F-closes. (generally girls do not fear this reputation from repeated Kiss closes so resistance won’t be to bad there).
In order to avoid this Plausible Deniability is key. They won’t to be able to tell others that it ‘just happened’. Try to build up more comfort than you usually would. If worst comes to worse you spend to long in the comfort phase and you get the LJBF, a door may have shut but her inner and outer circle have just opened up.
Their Anti-slut defence will highest during fresher’s week and will gradually reduce as social circles are established.
When it comes to relationships and even day 2s if her friends (inner circle) don’t like you then you won’t get very far. If you win them over, they will be constantly asking her about you and keeping you on her mind in a good way. Piss them off however and you have an army of mother hens advising her to stay away.
Life of the Party
On campus people want to associate themselves with someone that can give them a good time. Be the life of the party, when out clubbing always be leading others to the dance floor, get the drinking games going etc. During the day be smiling, laughing just having fun. After all that’s what Uni/college is all about.
Be the life of the party and drag others into it with you.
I will add more as I remember it, but for now I hope this answers some of the questions about colleges, universities and fresher’s weeks that have been cropping up of late.
