Actually no! I make sure not to ask 'Where did you go to school' (would have to assume that they went) or 'What do you do' (maybe they do not want to discuss work at a social event). I don't tell folks where I went to school unless they ask/it comes up in natural conversation either.

p.s. People here have a really bad habit of asking 'What do you do?' two seconds after meeting lol

If you get a PhD in Sociology or Social Work you can't really expect to be successful.
If you are willing to study that many years for such a sh*tty degree, you might as well try Medical School.




what makes it a sh*tty degree?


a degree that has a lower chance of jobs with a high paying position (100k+ yearly).

And it also matters from where you got the degree, therefore, grades are important too.

people who enter social work aren't exactly in it for the money...that would be the same as questioning why anyone would want to teach, if degree worthiness is based on salary.

i don't think that's been the trend in this thread

Yes, you may not find happiness, chemistry, love, etc with someone with a degree. Those things are far more important than a degree.

and they have to "settle" for being social workers? wow! what a slap in the face and total disrespect to those fields.
Girl, leave it be. Many people assume all social workers do is hand out cheese and take kids.LOL

I agree that a love match cannot be found in all degreed people. I guess my line of thinking is:

-A degree is not more important than happiness/chemistry/love...
-However, if you can find all of the above plus a degree...that's ideal (for me), and the world is big enough/one has enough options to get the full package if they desire it.

LOL-- sidenote, I wonder how I would react if I found myself falling in love with someone who's the complete opposite than what I'm looking for? I'm a Virgo, so I tend to listen to my head rather than my heart--I don't see myself doing a 180... stranger things have happened though!

that's awkward as hell

@ spokenword... that's like fed who think cops couldn't have it..or doctors who think theyre above nurses
