    I have never been in a relationship, but my twin sister has. Therfore i know its not my looks, so must be my personality. I work really hard in class but think i might come off as a bit of a know-it-all. Should i try to relax and hope for the best or continue as i am? I dont mean that i wil just ignore all school work, i just mean that i will try and be a bit more social with peers xx -Beth

    Relationships can wait so don't prioritise it over getting good grades.

    Education comes first, you won't get another chance but relationships come and go.

    Those who prioritise their social lives over their education are usually the ones who end up in dead-end jobs for the rest of their lives. Might seem like a fun idea to spend all your time at parties being social now, but you'll regret it later. So no, definitely don't prioritise a relationship over your education.

    Focus on your education, improve yourself, and change the world later in life. It'll be much more satisfying than looking back at dodgy teen parties that you'll probably barely remember.(from what I've heard from others. I've had no such experience fortunately, because I actually am focusing on my education)

    i think that you should try to socialise with them and try find a bf/gf , while maintaining a good work ethic. hope this helps
