And if a woman likes you or doesn’t like you because of your college degree then she’s not worth having around.

Start fessing up to what you don’t know, whether that means asking your doctor what it’s like to go on the Pill or looking up what the phrase “dental dam” actually means. Are you just hooking up and free to get with other people? Are you hooking up exclusively, but still not in a serious relationship? If you think that graduating from college is going to make defining your relationships easier, think again. Suddenly there are new issues to complicate things, like what it really means to move in with someone you’re getting sort-of-serious with and disagreements over wedding planning.

SO many people seem to be painfully inconsiderate… Please, PLEASE don’t be one of them. Now he may end up earning less than you, and “going nowhere” and you may be the “bread-winner,” but think about it… Do you know a 40 year-old who makes next to nothing and lives with his mother?

Among those who were ages 25 and older in 2014, 65% of those with a bachelor’s degree or more were married, compared with 53% of adults with less education, according to a Pew Research Center analysis.

Estimates are based on an approach similar to that used to determine life expectancy and assume that marriage patterns in the future will follow patterns today. The findings refer only to opposite-sex marriages; the sample size was too small to analyze same-sex marriages.

If you’re seeing someone, you two will most likely be spending these special days together. Which is why I encourage you to end things with your high school bae as amicably as possible. You’re going to be remembering them for a hella long time, they might as well be fond things instead of foul.
