Right now i am back in college in a different field now in the Medical field, I graduted high school went to another college now back doing something different. I dislike when people tyr to make it seem like they are better then another because something they have done in there life. We are all human and make mistakes and we love who we Love and I am in love with a man that is currently an inmate and I go to school and am working towards a degree that doesn't change who I am or who he is for the situation we are in.

I have my Bachelors in Applied Arts from a major University and my boyfriend who's doing 1.5 years has his bachelors in psychology. We're smart people.. who happen to be mixed up in a bad circumstance. I am sure education plays a certain role in crime... but it's not always a great indicator.

I work full time and am going to night school to be a nurse .... its a stereotype that only ignorant people date a man in prison....I hate the way the men are automatically classified as dead beats .... I think we have all made dumb mistakes, ours just isnt put out there for the world to judge. Ill decide who is good enough for me and who isnt!

I have a BS in Psychology, MS in Juvenile Forensic Psychology and I plan on getting a doctorate in Clinical Adolescent Psychology and education does not have anything to do with love. I married my high school sweetheart and things happen. I would still love my man whether I went to college or not because he is such a good person and has a heart of gold sometimes we get caught up in this thing called life and lose perspective on things. Some of the most educated people are behind bars and they didn't have to go to college to get degrees and it's not like they couldn't have.

I have a BA, but after a year doing medical research I decided I want to be a doctor. Now I'm at an Ivy League university doing my med school pre-requisites. Education has nothing to do with love!

I went through a yr and half of social service worker, and decided it wasn't for me, along with other things that happened, not related to my man now.
I'm waiting for my acceptance to school, I'm going through for Occupational/physio therapist assistant, and when I am done that it depends what life deals but I want to go to university and upgrade to be a occupational/physio therapist.
I don't believe that love has anything to do with your education.

I have a BBA in Accounting & Finance and I'm currently back in school for my MBA. My baby loves that I'm a "nerd". LOL

And I agree you can't always control who you fall in love with and education, money and other things like that shouldn't matter as long as he knows how to treat you right.

I have a BS in Therapeutic Recreation and my family and friends think I'm nuts b/c I should have that guy that looks fabulous on paper. The thing is, on paper is the only place those guys are fabulous. You truly can't help who you fall in love with...
