    I want to focus on college rather than girls does anyone have any advice?
    Also its so hard when everyone around has a girlfriend/boyfriend. Im 17 is it worth not getting a relationship and focusing on work? But the thing is I will always be working no matter what because I'm gonna be doing medicine so when do I get a relationship I dont want to spend the rest of my life alone

    Aaah, don't worry about it. There's still the future to come along. Just focus on studies right now.

    Focus on your work-it is better to be safe than sorry.

    If the opportunity presents itself to you, take it. (Not literally, if you want to chase someone then go for it).

    But if it doesn't happen at that age, don't stress out.

    You need to find the right balance, spending enough time on your work to achieve the grades you need whilst also enjoying your free time with your friends and girlfriend to a degree that you're happy with.

    Prioritise your work and ensure that any girls you're interested in in the future and end up dating are well aware that while a lot of your time is going to be spent on your studies, when you do have free time you will give her your undivided attention and treat her as she deserves to be treated.
