I mean people always laugh and ask me "You're still single?" and it's like the hell? A lot of people who look down on single people are the people that are crying when a 1-5 month relationship ends or are cutting themselves when they get cheated on in a HIGH SCHOOL RELATIONSHIP.
I see myself as smart for staying single and getting all A's in my freshmen and now in my sophomore year, because when I go to college and beast there to and get a good job I'll have all the time in the world to date and it'll actually be a real relationship.

Don't sweat it, dude. At 36 I still have strangers come up and ask me why I'm not married. Society tries to force us into a particular life track, and people feel uncomfortable when they see others taking a different route. They look to the people around them for validation of their choices, and through your own, different choices you're denying them that validation.
Don't let anyone else decide what is or should be important to you. If doing well in school and devoting your time and energy working toward a career that you like is a major goal for you, then absolutely go for it.1
