I’m not salty that someone hasn’t professed their crush on me.
But I am currently matching my red beret with my red lipstick because ~studying abroad in Europe~, and I’m just,,,disappointed.
In case you didn’t see the newest development in “Wesleyan attempts to make another Facebook page outside of Soggy We$ Memes,” someone decided to create a Wesleyan Crushes Facebook group. Now, because I’m hopeful that one day Wesleyan will transform into a campus with some actual romance (and maybe also because I just made a playlist called “when in the mood for monogamy”), I’m willing to find my Wesleyan husband™ not via a Pi Cafe Romance™, but through a community with Roth’s face as the profile pic. I’ve been single for way too long.
Since I’m six hours ahead of ya’ll, I was informed of this new matchmaking/hookup-making/maybe even wholesome content-making platform at around 5 AM. And I’m not sure how I coherently sent this message to the editors’ chat, but this happened:
Now, I’ve had my hand in Internet Dating Culture™ for the purposes of making a fool of myself on Wesleying. This time, I’ve taken it upon myself to make sure the Wesleying Editors are painted in the best light so that, dear Wesleyan community, we can receive validation via this platform.
Seen someone on campus wearing the most flattering parka? A friend bring a smile to your face when you really needed it? Crushing on that special somebody but don’t see them around much? Good news, everyone! There’s a site for that.
Up and Coming
Springing up sometime over the Thanksgiving break, the I Saw You phenomenon has finally reached Wesleyan! Great for those who have not partaken of the ZuckerbergKool-Aid and less depressing/trolltastic than the ACB, “I saw you Wesleyan” allows you the option of posting about a missed connection, ranting about your crush, complimenting strangers, and even e-mailing the site’s manager if you think a post is about you.
This is a social project that was originally started by students at Queen’s University and is also experiencing growing success with Ryerson University, Wilfred Laurier University and Washington University in St Louis. With their success, we’re hoping to spread the joy to the Wesleyan campus. Simply send us a compliment for someone in the Wesleyan community and have it published here anonymously. Your name will be kept anonymous. Keep in mind that hateful or rude remarks will be completely disregarded. Spread Happiness!
It’s that time of year again. Blossoms are blooming, pollen fills the air, and everyone’s a hot mess.
You know what that means: Wescam is here. It’s the end of the year and for just a little while, the power of the Internet is here to help you connect with those beautiful seniors who are leaving soon. The site’s pretty much the same as the last two years. Underclassmen can add seniors, seniors can add anyone.
All it takes is an account with your Wes email. Explanation from the developers themselves:
wescam lets seniors find other students on campus and other students find seniors. add usernames of people you want to meet up with (they don’t need to already have a wescam account) and if you both add each other, you’ll be simultaneously notified!
one other thing: if someone adds you and you haven’t added them, you both have the opportunity to anonymously message the other person to find out more about each other. we’ll also give the other person a fake username so that you can identify them easily in your conversations. so you can ask them whether you’re both in the same class or how they know you. then you can try to add them to see if you’ve guessed correctly!
Not sure how the Comp Sci department can help you get laid during Senior Week?
WeScam, everyone’s favorite website for “meeting other students over senior week,” is back in action. The coding and general rules are the same as last year—in short, underclassmen can only add seniors, seniors can add anyone. The logic, in short: you’re graduating, so who cares? You need to sign up on WeScam to add other students; you don’t need to be signed up to get an email notification when someone adds you.
