Female students who spend their evenings drained and fatigued in the library and are in the mood for a little closeness and intimacy are encouraged to send an email.An email? Whoa, Casanova, you ought to write a book on how you're so smooth with the ladies.
I dunno, it just seems a little, how shall I say it ... industrial to me. For these folks, sex is like having your oil changed. It's been 3 months or 3,000 miles and it's time to do it. If you're looking for intimacy send an email.
You know if all that wooing and romance is too much for you, they ought to just set up a web-based calendar so these, err, meetings can be scheduled online. They can even make an iPhone app for that, if they haven't already.
Or it might not.
Update: Yes, I know that this is not standard and I saw that only a few girls responded, but what struck me was how it was treated in the article. No judgment, no analysis, just a matter-of-fact story about college students, the leaders of the future, randomly hooking up on a continent that isn't having children and isn't producing enough to cover their bills. You'd think they'd be screaming, "GET SERIOUS, YOU TWITS!", but they're not. It's all ho-hum and tra-la-la.
Good luck with that.
