As far as the woman issue goes... I think you care a little too much. Don't read that wrong. I dont mean stop caring. I mean you're thinking about it and getting frustrated. If a girl blows you off, even if you thought it was going somewhere... just say "Eh... eff you too, I dont care." And really mean it. Then move on.
That's the hard part. Usually when you blow a woman off, she comes running back. You have to hold your ground.
You need to have a carefree mentality about said "love life" and then all of a sudden... chicks dig you. Why? I dont know. Its something psychologic in their brains. Its like when a girl says to you, "I dont think I can see you... you're too nice." WHAT?!?! You care too much. Blow her off a few times. I know its screwed up and makes no sense, but its what they want. Just dont be a dick about it too much, or too often. They eat it up for some reason.
It's ass-backwards, isn't it? Absolutely true, though. They lose interest in guys that they can use, or guys that bore them. Women need a challenge and a man who can make a firm presence for himself and not be a tool (in other words, give off an essence of masculinity). The idea that he can leave at any time keeps them interested in pleasing their man. In that respect, women like to be dominated. They complain about it to their friends and they might cry now and then, but for some strange reason, they make sacrifices and stick through it instead of walking away... because the next guy might be a tool ;-) Don't be a tool. It's unattractive if you make it easy for a woman to have her way with you. As the relationship develops and you approach marriage, you can be more and more "cooperative" and "a good guy" for lack of better terminology. They like assholes, but I don't think they like to marry assholes. At some point, you need to show her that you have enough maturity to settle down and make things work for your future together.
Or... forget the women and get that degree. Get the good job, the stable life and the house FIRST... then the love life.
More or less, this is my plan too. I think it's a good one. Be open to any good relationships that might develop in the meantime, but your real goal for now is the degree, not a woman.
smokinAMD, stop caring so much what women think of you and just do your thing man.
