My mom and sister are constantly judging the newest guy I went on a date with. There's not even a relationship or anything serious going on yet, and they're saying that I'm settling, selling myself short, that he's going to keep me from going anywhere or accomplishing my goals, etc.
I understand why they might feel this way (he doesn't go to school, and can't get a steady job right now because of a DUI), but I'm an adult, close to 23 years old, and it's not like I'm planning a wedding. I'm just looking for someone I connect with right now. Everyone makes mistakes, and his issues will be dealt with soon enough.
I've tried being nice and being a bitch about it, but nothing seems to get my family to back off. What else can I do?

Just ignore them when they talk about it. Be curt with your responses and suck it up until you can move out.0
