  • WOO! Who cares? He has the degree and a job, why would a GPA matter?

  • I don't see why that has anyhing to do with being with someone. I graduated HS with a 3.6 and college with a 3.8, my DH did not graduate HS, but got his GED and went to a tech school. Our education differences have never been an issue for us.

  • Of course not what differance does his GPA make if you care about him

  • Who really cares what his GPA was?? He graduated and that's all that matters. Don't get all wrapped up in the damned numbers. Employers are usually asking what your GPA was.

  • If you loved him this wouldn't be a thought in your head.

  • Did he have to fill out an application to be your boyfriend? At least he's honest with you. He has graduated and has a job, that's all that should matter.

  • Absolutely not!! Maybe he had one or two semesters with crazy shit going on in his personal life that messed up his GPA... but he still kept at it.... you can't base your opinion on such a small slice of his life. Or...maybe he struggled for every passing grade he got, so that means he was in it for the long haul and has "stick-to-it-ness". Either way... these are admirable qualities.

  • Would I break up with him? Seriously? No, I'm not that shallow. I've never dated people because of their GPA's.
