I am 27 years old. I had this girlfriend for 9 years, high school sweethearts. Started dating around 15. I thought she was going to be the girl i was with forever. I can't even recall what happened but we ended up breaking up and were too stubborn to talk about our problems. After high school i got a construction job with her neighbor. Awesome job for someone so young. I made 22 an hour. When the break up happened i snapped and made some awful decisions. The main bad move was i quit my job because i couldn't stand having to park outside of her house everyday to go to work. So i sit and live off what i have saved for about 3 years and did absolutely nothing. Alot a world of warcraft, hanging out with friends drinking, different girlfriends. Yea, i dated some crazy chicks in 3 years. Most of you are wondering how i could not work for 3 years! well i live with my dad and he doesn't charge me rent, try to give him money sometimes but he never takes it. I started to get super depressed in that time mostly about love. I'd wonder if i'd ever get that feeling back where you truly love someone and they love you. And then it happened. I am wasted at a bar with friends one night and ask this random SMOKIN girl to go to a upcoming wedding with me, that i was just invited to. We had some mutual friends so she says yes! We went to that wedding and everything since then has been a miracle. Been dating her for 6 months now. So, here is the problem, i want to start a life with this girl. Have our own place, maybe have kids someday, the typical thing every person wants. But i can't find a job worth a shit!!!!! Right now i work construction still, with a new guy but its only part time and i am not making the kind of money that can support a family @ only 14 an hour. Without a college degree it seems i am only ever offered 10 an hour no matter what it is. Yes i know i have the option of going to school......but i am getting sorta old and do want to start that life that i mentioned. I am willing to move away if i landed a good job. All i'm looking for is a new exciting opportunity for a career and have no clue where i should start to look. I'm realizing you can't get anything decent without college. Money sucks!
