Let's say the person is overall attractive, inside and out, to you. But they dropped out of college.
They are very intelligent and can have intellectually as well as emotionally deep conversations; but they just suck at conventional academic standards. They work (they're not a bum) and have ambitions for the future.
Would this be a deal breaker?
- College dropout is an instant deal breakerVote A
- College dropout is a big turnoff, but can be forgiven in some circumstancesVote B
- College dropout, doesn't matter either way to youVote C
- College dropout is preferredVote D

I voted B even though I don't think it's a "big turnoff", I just think it's a shame for an intelligent person to give up on education that would fit their intelligence much better than a high school degree... But I would date them if they fit the description above. In fact, my boyfriend is a college dropout, he is hard working and has ambitious plans for his future, so I don't mind it at all. I respect such men more than lazy unambitious guys with a masters degree who leech of their parents' money.1
