So here’s my situation. I’m 26 going on 30, spent most of the past 8 years in and out of college (three changes of major, one year off, and an incalculable amount of time spent watching Futurama reruns) or working odd jobs just to scrape by. I’ve decided to just call it quits for the time being and find myself a job somewhere. I won’t walk away with a degree but, miraculously, I will walk a way with my virginity intact and a healthy aversion to pornography - in other words the exact opposite of what you’d expect to get out of prolonged time spent in college. I’m gonna go live with family temporarily, until I can get a place of my own.
I know what your thinking, and no, my question isn’t “on a scale of 1 to 10 how big a loser am I”…that posting will come later…and the answer 11 will trigger an immediate message to the moderator. No, my question has to do with dating. Aside from the usual fear of women that keeps nerds such as myself from being particularly successful on the dating scene, I’ve purposely been avoiding relationships because I wanted to wait until I was sure I’d have a degree/career/steady-job before I got married, since marriage is the ultimate end of dating.
:shrug: But since said lucrative career is not in my immediate future, I wonder whether or not I should just date whoever is willing to risk abject poverty by being silly enough to be with a futureless schlep such as myself. As such, I’ve decided to harness the incredible power of the internet seek an answer. Advice anyone? I’ve already tried my Magic 8-ball and it said that the reply was hazy, so hopefully this will pan out a little better.
