Am I Good Enough for My Boyfriend?

Aug. 19, 2016

Dear Cathy:

My boyfriend and I have been dating for 4 years and the relationship is serious. However, my boyfriend is really smart and is getting his Master’s degree but I dropped out of community college. Am I good enough to be with him? Non-educated, Missouri

Dear Non-Educated?

It doesn’t matter if you are not educated the same as your boyfriend. If he treats you with respect and love you, then sometimes that’s enough. However, if you feel you still need to get some type of education, then get out there and do it.

There are many opportunities to get out there and get some type of education today, however, never allow a relationship to make you feel less than just because both of you don’t have the same level of education.

It’s actually reversed today and many women in relationships are educated and many men are not but again none of that should come into play when there is true love involved. 

Talk with your boyfriend about how you feel and see if he encourages you to go back to school or tell you that he loves you just the way you are.

Street smarts trump book smart at all levels and don’t forget that many people did very well in life and they were self-taught. Again don’t allow the fact that your boyfriend is more educated than you make you feel less than. You are just as worthy as your boyfriend.
