So I recently have been trying to go back to school and make something out of myself academically... but I just seem to be one of those people that can't ever seem to stay focused academically. This is like my fourth time going back to college, and already after my first semester I am feeling like I am snapping under pressure. i have been giving a lot of thought and I think I might just be happier working full time at the grocery store I am working at part time... so I am certainly leaning that way.
Anyways the question is this... should I move? Right now I live in a college town full of college kids. I won't be the type of person that gets a college degree, but I want to find someone to start a family with. I feel that many folks in this college town will exclusively have a serious relationship with someone that is also working on a college education. I feel that living here is really hampering my ability to find someone special and I am seriously thinking about possibly moving to a bigger city. Anyone have some thoughts on this? Will not having a college degree have a stigma for me in the long-term relationship field?

You can't work in a grocery store forever.
What are your goals? What are you going to college for? To me it sounds like you have no motivation to do whatever it is that you're going to school for and that's why you keep quitting. Maybe you should go to school for something like a trade instead and you'll be happier.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Concentrate on that first and THEN go back to school.
You might be able to date now while you're young, but what happens when you're ready to get married? Sorry man, but nobody wants to marry a guy that's a manager of a grocery store. What are your long term goals? Do you have any? Do you plan on working there forever? How are you going to support your family? Think about those things.
You don't necessarily have to have a college degree, but you DO have to have a plan. I have no problem with dating a guy without a degree, but I do have a problem with dating a guy with no ambition.
Figure out what you want to do with your life first.. then worry about finding a woman to be with you.0
