    I suppose I would, but other criterion might factor in. High school is a joke, and I understand that intelligence does not come automatic with a slip of paper.

    No. I would have nothing in common with someone so ignorant, or lacking in ambition.

    It clearly depends on the circumstances as to why he didn't finish high school:

    1) If he dropped out because he was bored and didn't want to go - I would not date him.

    2) If he HAD to drop out of school to find a job and support his family or himself - I would date him.

    Nah dude, unless it was due to special circumstances, people who can't graduate hs should be isolated in an island where they are forced to weave mittens for the rest of their lives.

    If it's because he's 16 then no!! Otherwise, it wouldn't count against him. There are a ton more factors at play than high school diplomas.

    If they had goals, they'd have a HS diploma.

    I dropped out of High school 11th,but got my GED.

    Would you date a guy with no high school diploma?

    Yeah, I would but hopefully he would be working on getting his GED atleast so there would be more opptions for him in the world.

    Yeah, as long as he still had goals in his life, wasn't just sitting around letting life pass them by. So he would still need to have a job where he could support himself, or something along that....

    This kind of hits close to home for me...I didn't graduate HS on time due to my laziness and procrastination. I did finish a few months later, and here I am. During those few months I wasn't a graduate, I felt embarrassed telling a guy that I didn't have my diploma, but honestly it wasn't a factor for any of them. Point is, a diploma is a simple piece of paper and it shouldn't reflect your intelligence but rather you diligence. People cheat their way through school, and also there are some very smart guys who didn't graduate. It's all about how much work you did and not so much about your intelligence. In my school district, tests account for 70% of your grade, and HW being about 20% and the remainder being participation. Some people just don't do so well on tests!

    Point is...A lack of diploma doesn't equal stupidity. (But I will admit it can indicate lack of ambition haha)

    I have to confess: I'm most attracted to blue-collar type dudes. Many of these guys chose to work rather than go to school... whether it was because of family needs, they had kids to support, or they just did not like school.
    The fact that a guy doesn't have a college (or even high school) education is completely irrelevant to my attraction to him. I am a huge nerd and would rather be in school than work for the rest of my life, but that's not how it works.
    I just ask that my guy be a hard-working good guy, I could do all the thinking for him ;)

    I totally would. As stated earlier by other guys, as long as they were moving forward in life and doing something about it, I wouldn't care.

    As long as they could match wits with me and get some of my "nerd" jokes, I wouldn't mind.

    Yes, I would try and motivate him to move on with his life. Sometimes someone else's compassion will spark something in a person that will motivate them to want to do better things.

    Wow some of the responses sound pretty narrow minded to me. If a guy has a diploma or not is about the last thing I would judge him on. Come to think about it, ive never asked a guy if he graduated high school.

    I wouldn't care if he grew up in the mountains and the only math he did was counting sheep....If the guy was alright and had a nice personality, THAT's what important to me, not that he has school diploma or whatever.
