This College Student Said That "College Boys Ask You On Real Dates" And People Have Been Challenging The Statement For Months

"College boys stand in the corner of a party staring @ u all night then text u as soon as u leave saying 'i think i saw u tonight lol.'"

In January, Tatianna Saunders, a 19-year-old student at Western State Colorado University, tweeted this:

College boys ask you on real dates. High school boys didn't prep me for that.

At the time of her tweet, she was in her second semester of freshman year.

"I had been asked on dates in college, like actual, real dates to dinner, and coffee, and outdoors dates, and I did not at all have that same experience in high school," Saunders told BuzzFeed News of what inspired the tweet.

Since then, the response to her statement about "college boys" has not stopped. Many people are replying to the tweet with counterarguments.

Saunders said that the tweet will "sporadically get popular." "Every few months or so people will respond to it and it will be series of responses," she said. Here's a response to her tweet about a date that sounds...not ideal.

Saunders responded herself in August with receipts to support her point.

Others responded with screenshots of their own text conversations, which were slightly different in tone.

When asked if any of the responses have been entertaining, Saunders responded: "There’s a lot of screenshots of guys just being gross to girls so I did find those entertaining, I suppose, but also pathetic."

@hotsie_tatsie Idk man college boys are something else

Saunders, who is now in her second year of school, added: "I’m really sorry guys are being so horrible across the US."

Godspeed, kids!
