Even graduates are having a time of it. The economy and job finding, etc. can be hard.
If you are contemplating a solid comittment, you don't really want to start it out with a partner that might be with you out of fear and desperation.
By moving out and taking any ol' job, Walmart, Mcdonald's, whatever, even if you have a degree, at least it gets you out of the house and into a more positive environment.
Whatever job anyone has, it give you independance by paying the bills. You can move up from there.
Plus, it seems people who are getting the types of jobs you want to keep, already have any type of job in place, Kohls, Bergners, etc.
Just get your foot in the door and find a place where love can develop on its own and without more negative interference than it can go up against natually on its own with the trials and epiphanies along the way.
Best of luck
