Things You NEED In Your Dorm Room
Basically most guys want to know what they should bring when they move into their dorm. They want to know what they will use mostly and what will impress the ladies. Do not worry because this list should help you decide what is necessary in college guy’s dorm room.
Button Down shirts are a must Guys wake up you are in college and now should dress professionally now. Job interns are going to start occuring and you need to look your best. Plus you should always want to look good and button down shirts do that for you. I would say 4-5 nice button down shirts will suffice.
Dress Pants. Same reasons as for button down shirts.
Bring a couple of pairs of jeans to wear out for a party or to chill when it gets cold out.
Shirts: Bring a couple of nice short sleeve and long sleeve shirts. By nice I mean not all Hollister and Abercrombie and all that. Wear different shirts; shirts no one has ever seen before. Be different! Do not forget crappy shirts too that can get dirty because you never know when a girl will check you out playing a sport!
Shoes: Guys bring a pair of dress shoes! Always look your best when your going out. Impress girls, show them what you got! Bring one pair of running shoes like asics or nike. I wouls also bring a casual pair, for example: Nike 6.0’s.
Then your usual socks, boxers, shorts, jacket ( A blazer would be very good), and multiple sweat shirts ( Just in case a girl steals one).
Comfortable bed Guys this is key. If you have a comfortable bed, girls will keep coming back to it if they want to chill, have a couple of beers, “sleep”, whatever the case is they will come back.
Fan: It is most likely going to get very hot in your dorm room. Make sure you have a fan to keep you cold at night when you sleep. Also, make sure the room is comfortbale so when a girl comes in, she does not sweat till after you two are done!
Pillows: I would recommend two nice, either soft or hard, pillows.
Snacks: Bring a lot of snacks and little things to have because you might get hungry at night. Ex: Doritos, ice cream, snack packs, anything. I find Easy Mac to be a perfect snack.
Soup: If you go to a school when it gets cold out, a nice bowl of soup will put you in a great mood.
Chocolate: Guys, girls like chocolate so it would not be a bad thing to have some of that around.
Forks, Knives, Spoons, Napkins
Refrigerator, Freezer, and Microwave
Treat Yourself: Buy yourself something that you would like to make or have that you had home. Who cares how expensive it is, just buy it so if you are ever in the mood for it, there it is!
Toothpaste and Tooth Brush are a MUST
Towels: Bring a couple of towels, about 4-5. Shower sex is amazing so you neve know!
Soap and shampoo
Toilet paper, tissues, soap, and paper towels: Be respectful to your other roommates and make sure you bring toilet paper too. You do not want to run out of toilet paper!
Laundry Bag and Detergent: I would suggest to bring a lot of detergent and bring a big laundry bag because it will suck if you make a couple of trips to get your laundry. Get all your laundry at once to make your life easier.
Vacuum: Keep your dorm clean!
Pens and scrap paper: You are going to fly out of pens and paper. Bring a lot.
Binders and Notebooks are necessary
Printer: It is not completely necessary but if you are running late and need to print something fast, it becomes well worth it.
Highlighters, pencils, CALENDER, Ruler, Tape, Thumbtacks, SAT calculator, Backpack
First aid kit: You never know when you will need it
Tylenol, Excedrin, Pepto Bismol, and allergy medication (Ex: Claritin): Just make sure you are not allergic to any of these
Condoms: This is huge right here. Be safe and have a great time. Remember, one bad mistake and there goes your life. Just use them everytime you have sex. I would recommend bringing 3-5 boxes because you also have to help out your friends when they need one. Now some schools do not allow condoms, so make sure you hide them. Also, it does not look good if you leave them out and a girl walks in.
Sports equipment: Bring a football, tennis racket, baseball glove, anything to do with sports. Stay active and in shape.
Posters: It is always good to have posters. Show people what you are interested in. Always a good ice breaker!
Television: Always good to have one, especially if you put a game system on it. Watch movies or play games.
Pictures of whatever you want ( Friends, Family…)

Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you?
Let's face it. Girl's don't make it easy for you. She will often send mixed signals leaving you unable to tell if she is being friendly or flirty. If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment. Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
