Slampiece here with some advice for you on getting that "Ring by Spring". I'm not saying I have one or will (or even want to) but I know many a senior (and more than a few wily juniors) who are sick of the run around and want the top fratdaddy to be theirs- fb offic and all. Being the resident serial dater, as well as an upperclasswoman, I have amassed a few tricks over the years to help you! This encompasses all areas of being a Sorostitute and will help you with everything- not just finding Mr. Right.
Baking- we say it time and time again, but baking and cooking for frats is really the easiest way into their hearts. Here are a few of my favorite recipes that are sure to win his heart through his stomach. Bringing bakedgoods is a great first impression or icebreaker for the fratdaddy you know, but have nothing to talk about with.
Slampiece's Secret Weapon Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- 1 1/3 cup all purpose or baking flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cooking oats (Quaker Oats in a can recommended)
- 1 cup m&ms in your fratdaddy's colors
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 fairly beaten egg
- 1/2 cup butter (melted in the microwave)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, making sure they are thoroughly mixed up. Then add wet ingredients, mixing with large spoon. You will probably want to use your hands to mix it when it starts to get hard to mix with a spoon.
Roll dough into 1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet appoximately 1 inch apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, put on crystal platter and run them down (warm) to your favorite frat.
Spicy Hot Chocolate
Finals are around the corner, as is cold weather. Invite your prey (I mean future husband) over for a movie, hot chocolate and snacks as a study break. Tell him your grandma makes the best spicy hot chocolate and you want to make it for him since its so cold out.
- 2 cups milk
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 4 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Put all ingredients into saucepan, heat over low setting until chocolate is fully melted. Increase temperature slightly until a boil starts. Remove from heat and whisk for 30 seconds. Return to heat until boiling point and repeat twice. Serve with a dash of cinnamon on top :)
Hopefully one of your chapters still has at least one of these on the books for the semester. The best way to see if you can stand being a couple is the test of a formal. Can you pose for a million pictures together without biting off his head? Can he stand you when you are blackout? Can he dance? Are his freinds awkward around you or do they accept you into the group and vice versa.
First off you have to ask him. It's great if you get the go-ahead from a sister or his brother, but try to do the actual asking yourself. Better yet, con him into asking you.
Text/BBMing/Facebook chat is acceptable, however make sure that it is prior to 1am when you do the asking, also confirm by text as soon as possible the next day (after chatting banally about something else first, do not look desperate). If for some reason he declines next day, pretend you were drunk and/or it was one of your sisters. Sorostitutes do not get rejected.
If you have your eye on a date, have your freinds bring all his freinds. This is the easiest way to get a fratdaddy comfortable. Hopefully this doesn't backfire- they could end up ignoring you and pounding shots by themselves all night (should I do a post about last year's formal????)
Hopefully you have a great table, you have fabulous pictures in the slideshow, you take home his tie/bowtie and he takes you home and the relationship is set into motion.
Personally, I don't do this. I do a little flag-football every once and again for the benefit of the fratdaddy I am impressing but I try not to sully my nike shorts by sweating or engaging in too much activity.
HOWEVER I realize that many better Sorostitutes than me go to the gym, run around the ocean/lake/fratrow and generally work out more than once a month. This can be an excellent way to get into your fratdaddy's heart. Most girls do anything they can to not have a fratdaddy see them when they are sweaty or working out but that is where you will have the advantage.
Start a conversation about how you want to do more than just use the elliptical but you don't know how to use the machines (even though you do). 9 times out of 10 this leads to a gym date where he spots you and you look like a super fit, fun girl.
Make sure your run takes you past his house. Twice. At times he's likely to be coming or going. I'm not going to explain to you how cute you will look jogging by with your iphone or ipod touch in lettered tee's and nike shorts.
Hopefully this has given you some ideas for how to snag the best fratdaddy you can. If you guys like it, I'll continue the series and if not, too bad I may anyhow ;) (I've had a few cocktails)
