Im 24 years old and extremely career orientated and i will be going back to college soon. I have a very career orientated life but for the most part im doing okay.

My life does seem a little dull and for some reason i am longing a little bit for a personal connection.

I do not need a women to make me feel happy or complete my life or fill some void but i would like someone i can go to the movies with go to dinner with share laughs with and hold at night.

Im not lonely because i have friends and family but it would be nice just to share personal good experiences with someone.

At this stage of the game in my life i should be out sleeping with as many women as humanly as possible but with all those diseases out here its not worth it and im not interested.

Dont get me wrong I love sex but i would rather be with someone im committed loyal to and they are to me.

Does that make me a wuss?

Sorry for the bad grammer Im using my phone.

No, but being career oriented at your age and maintaining a serious relationship will be very difficult. Your potential S/O may feel neglected at times and leave you. Other times, your career may take you elsewhere which will eventually separate you two, causing some hurt later.

I advise not being in a 'committed' relationship. Concentrate on your career.

Difficult but you didnt say impossible.
Id figure whoever I get into a relationship would have to understand that I am a very career orientated person and would have to accept that about me before getting into a relationship with me.

BS, career driven people have relationships and even kids.

I work 44 hours/week, I go to college full time and have a house with yard to maintain - I still have enough time for friends and dating. You can't generalize that career driven people have no time for dating. Some do, some don't.

Don't just tell people they shouldn't date when they are committed to their career. There is tons of career driven people who even have kids (which I think they shouldn't)
