The Question Club
I was thinking the other day that almost every guy I liked in high school is NOT in college right now. They were all really smart, intellectual, talented guys; one drama kid who wrote plays and won awards, a really good tuba player, an amazing guitarist, a great singer and actor and dancer, a science and math genius who was in ROBOT club (don't judge me), and a journalist for the paper. Now, none of them are in college except for the 2 guys I liked who graduated when I did, one who has discussed dating with me, and we decided it would never work, since he is Mormon, and I am not religious at all, and the other is my best friend, and I've decided it's a bad idea.|
Anyway, my point is, I am 18 and going into college, and Todd, my friend from Hs when I was in 9th-11th grade, is 22 and starting community college next spring, and I was talking to him about this.
Does a college degree get considered when you are dating someone?
(I decided it does with most of those kids from HS, except Todd, because he is a really hardworker, has lived on his own for 4 years, has a HOUSE, and a crapload of money from working 2 jobs. I really think it depends on the person. Drama kid is 21, wants to join the Marines because he 'needs the money' and lives at home, tuba player is a douche/volunteer fireman/bagger at Wal-Mart, guitarist is in the Army, science major lives at home, and journalist is in the Army. Those options all seem questionable to me, I want a man who can support a family, you know? Living at home at nearly 22 isn't attractive to me)
