No rose, no diamond ring, that’s the simple and romantic love stories in college. The graduates have to face the approaching of June, a time to farewell their beloved. When their future is confronted with love, which one is more important? What will the lovers do in June?
Don’t cry, my baby
There are so many love stories in college. If the lovers met each other by note passed, the story was called “note love”; if they knew each other in fast food restaurant, then “fast food love”; if they became lovers in a picnic, then “picnic love”. Liu Bing got to know Xiao Yu through QQ chat, and they got the so-called “QQ love”.
Their love story started at the end of 2nd Grade. Liu failed again in CET4 test and felt very upset. So he entered an Internet cafe near the school to kill time. While he was roaming about on the net, a stranger asked him through QQ, “May I chat with you?” Then he began chatting with him or her. Liu poured his trouble out and the other side appeased him patiently and asked him not to be discouraged, for there was still chance. After that, they promised to come to chat at 8 every day and it lasted for a week. Liu felt very happy. On the seventh day, the other side asked him, “Do you want to see me?” Liu typed “Yes!” without any hesitation. “Then you can turn your head back.” And Liu saw a lovely girl, whose name is Xiao Yu.
However, with the approaching graduation they also face a difficult choice. Xiao Yu is a local girl and her home is in Wuhan. While Liu Bing comes from Xi’an. They are both the only child in their family. Their parents aren’t against their being together, but both wish their kid being at home. They quarreled about the orientation furiously and the focus of their conflict always was which city they would choose. Xi’an or Wuhan? They were up a gum tree and couldn’t come to terms.
Finally, Liu and Xiao Yu went to the Internet cafe and they were still back to back this time. When Liu typed out “Let’s break up”, Xiao Yu couldn’t restrain her tears any more.
Still a long way to go
Chen Li has been unhappy recently. With the coming of graduation, she’s become even more depressed. She and her boyfriend Jia Hao don’t have a special story; they got to know each other in the library. Both of them enjoy learning and staying in the library. They would go to cinema or walk on the streets at weekends. Three years have passed quietly. They promised to take the postgraduate exam to Beijing at the 3rd grade. Unfortunately, Chen Li failed because of 2 points margin in English.
Jia Hao wanted Chen to go to Beijing with him and take exam there. Considering the economic condition, Chen thought it would be better to stay on campus. On the one hand, the living expense is lower here. On the other hand, she is familiar to the surroundings and can set her heart at studies.
At night, thinking that her lover would leave for Beijing, Chen Li’s tears fell down her cheeks silently, making her pillowslip wet all over. Although Jia Hao encouraged her over and over again that she would succeed at the second try and they would reunion in Beijing, however, he said so at the last time. Will their love still go on in case she fails?
A new life for us
Different from those sorrowful lovers, Ye Qing is like a happy bird flying in and out of her dormitory. She and her boyfriend were in the same class in high school. Fortunately they both came to Beijing though not in the same university. They’re not far from each other, although they can’t be very much in love every day like other love birds. Ye Qing feels contented that they can spend weekends together. Sometimes, Ye Qing would call her boyfriend and asked him to see her in half an hour and bring some snacks passingly.
Her boyfriend majors in the pop Communication. He has been employed by a well-known communicating corporation in Shenzhen. Ye Qing hasn’t found a satisfying job, but they’ve planed that she also goes to Shenzhen to hunt a job. As a major in Economic and Trade English, Ye thinks it not difficult in finding a job such as secretary or assistant. As far as buying house and car, she told us secretly, “He promised that I needn’t consider that kind of things.”
To the moment they have enough time to wile away. Ye has decided it was time to make up for the past 4 years’ loss of romance. Now they’ve been shopping around, going to movies and playing badminton every day. Seeing her boyfriend being “tortured”, Ye felt as happy as a princess in fairy tales.
Point of view
Hu Juan, graduate of 2002
My love came to the end with the coming of graduation. Nobody could taste my sorrow at that time. I felt I lost the man I loved most in the world. Such is not the fact. I worked, fell in love with another guy and then got married. Looking back on my love in college, I found that we were just in the same camp on entertainment. While my husband and I are living our lives.
Liu Xiaoming, graduate of 2003
I’ve been married. Of course, my wife was my girlfriend in the university. We had been in love for 3 years. Compared with other husband and wife, we feel it a superiority to own each other’s past. We would talk about our university life and recall dribs and drabs. Whenever we recollect together, we could feel each other’s heartbeat. And the expression in our eyes would become very gentle. The beautiful memory will always nourish our marriage.

It’s enough that each love starts with a beautiful beginning. As for whether it will come to an end, I feel it unnecessary to think too much. Love out of campus doesn’t always have a happy ending. Therefore, when love comes, we should enjoy the pleasure of loving. When love comes to an end, we could also taste its grief of parting. Tears taste sweet as long as you love your life.
Wang Qin, senior
I don’t have a boyfriend, but some boys are wooing me. I feel they’re not my cup of tea, so I refused. I have a wish that they could give me a hug before I leave by train when I graduate. I admire those who are in love on campus and at the same time I felicitate myself on not choosing at random. During the four years in university, as long as you live in earnest, you won’t regret, whether you own love or not, whether your love has future or not.毕业了，该分手了
