I swear, there is no difference in the intelligence levels of those two girls. Intelligence -- innate quickness & mental sharpness -- mean more to me than the degrees on somebody's wall. Although I have dated men with my level of education or greater, that wasn't the driving factor for me.My ex was more of an abstract thinker, where mt gf is very logical. It did cause a few men to decide they did not want to date me because they felt inadequate when I took them to work functions of mine.My sons mother had a fancy honours degree in something like modern languages and European studies.. People would be getting me all wrong if they judged my intelligence on that alone.

Intellectual curiosity for me is key and sharpness too.

There are different kinds of intelligence and I've realized I prefer certain kinds over others and tend to just get more excited about men who I can really really talk to, bounce ideas off, think with and thus grow with.

I despise the sort of daters that treat a date like a job interview; I can't think of anything more boring.

The girl I'm currently 'courting' (as my grandmother says ) is very well educated, and an art teacher.

I've dated men with varied levels of education over the years.

Although I pride myself on being able to get along with almost anyone, I will admit that intelligence, whether it's a result of many years or expensive schooling and multiple degrees or by way of an insatiable curiosity and eagerness to learn more about the world, gel much better with me and are better at holding my attention.

For example, my ex-boyfriend was an engineer, he was formally educated and all, but basically he wasn't intellectually curious in any way shape or form and this became increasingly intolerable esp when we hung out with my friends as he simply couldn't keep up in our conversations.

I felt like he only took the classes he needed to in order to be an engineer, so was good at his job, but otherwise was very ill-informed about the world, didn't have a grasp on other issues, was not in the least bit intellectually curious, never read, knew nothing about history,didn't really seem to care or think about larger things beyond making money so that he could have a house, a car and the trappings of a suburban life and just overall was very dull and content in his not-knowing, which wouldn't work for me as my career is about producing knowledge.

Simply because some people have differing intellectual requirements, doesn't make them highfalutin or pretentious.

For example, I could be dating a successful, articulate, educated, intellectual guy who's really made the grade, but one sniff of any social prejudice, I'm immediately on "Ignorant bigot" alert. That makes me choosy about whom I'm prepared to give my time to. Level of education doesn't faze me in the slightest.
