Rarely, do people live with the same person all four years. Tension arises or they transfer, hoping to find their true calling in the city rather than surrounded by trees... Whatever the case may be, your refrigerator is often shared with another's food every year. To my (and many others) surprise, I have had the same roommate, all four years. While we have not seen each other naked yet, she knows more than what is beneath my clothes.
How is that possible you ask? For us and many others, the answer is boys. Sadly, boys do not just control the way we dress, our color of hair, and "have I gotten fat?" But too often, do they hold the reins on a loyal friendship. "You can't like him! I like him!" That's the first sentence where you should know it's either your friend or new found, fascination. There is only one relationship that will last longer than any friendship and that is marriage. Believe it or not, there are more who graduate without the ring than with.
If you are already in college or entering soon, remember that boy's brains mature slower than girls and hopefully, your friend spends time with you for your charming personality instead of trying to get in your pants. Don't sacrifice a friendship for what might be. With a loyal friend, there is no might be. It already is.
