Would you consider dating a girl who dropped out of high school?
Not because she was lazy, but because of personal issues.
To be more specific I dropped out of high school at 17. My parents were going through a divorce and cause a lot of drama since I was 14.
I had a lot of issues with my mom, she'd often say I was too dumb and that I am a failure and she said at least she'd be proud of my brother and sister. Often saying "2 out of 3 ain't bad!"
My dad pretty much stayed to himself during my youth, so I had no one to guide me or help me with my struggle through school. I ended up getting severe anxiety and depression and dropped out of high school.
I have a job now and all, I work for everything, recovered from my depression (though I still get anxiety), I function pretty much like a normal woman would.
Except I worry that being a high school drop out makes me exactly what my mom would always told me I was.
Would you date a girl who was a high school drop out in this particular situation?
I plan on getting my GED and going to college as well. I'm 20 btw.
Sorry this is really weird question, I'm just super self conscious about this...
I really like this guy, but I'm afraid to date and tell them about my education, I feel like I will be mocked.

Unless your financing is broken by your parents' situation and you don't have anywhere to live and you don't have anything to eat and thus you need to somehow gather money for yourself, I'm not sure what would keep you from staying in school. My parents were bitching at each other for 10 years starting from when I was 8, yet I managed to finish high school even after they divorced and stuff. But as I said, my financing wasn't broken and I had stuff to eat. And I got notebooks to write the notes in. That helps a lot.
You should probably get that GED first.1
