OK I get what you're saying Slick. Well in my house it wasn't that girls were encouraged to go out with guys from a certain house, but there was
kind of an unspoken awe/admiration of the girls who dated guys from the top houses. Don't ask me why, that's just how girls are I guess. And of
course if Alpha Beta and Gamma Delta both had parties on the same night, but AB was the "better" house, of course the girls would go to AB (younger
girls would be encouraged by older girls to look nice, impress the ABs!) to "get their faces out there" to their guys. But on the flip side, I have
known several fraternity guys who have flat-out told me "I only date girls from ABC and XYZ" or express interest in a girl and, upon finding out
which house she is in, immediately lose interest. A guy I knew who was interested in one of my sisters even said to me once "Lisa's hot, too bad
she's a Sigma K or I would date her"!!!!!! One guy in my bf's house told me about how his girlfriend pledged a sorority and that she dumped him
once the girls in her house found out what house he was in, but the guy was kind of a jackass and I know he cheated on her so who knows the real
reason. Anyway my personal experiences have been GLO association matters much more to the guys than the girls.
We don't have any courting like in Pledged, like you said Slick our teamings for Homecoming and Greek Week are selected by the Greek Life staff.
However every semester for Preference, the semi-formal right after rush ends, the fraternities all go around and ask the sororities to Pref. Of course
who you go to Pref with is a big deal. The fraternities/sororities a house goes to Pref kind of reflect who those houses hang out with: the top houses
with the top houses, the smaller houses with the smaller houses. And is a huge selling point during rush too, especially for the guys. If the sorority
is asked by more than one house, we vote on who to go with. If more than one house accepts a fraternity's offer, they vote on it then. The
fraternities invite sororities to Pref before the end of the semester for the following term, so of course we got a lot of "Look cute for the XYZ
party, we want them to ask us to Pref!" and during Walk-Arounds (when sorority girls go to fraternity meetings or vice versa) of course we would
bring more treats to the houses we wanted to go with and the older girls would arrange us so that the "face cards" of the house were in front.
OK I'm stepping off my soapbox now.
