When you are dating, you are subject to a lot of scrutiny. It’s just part of the dating game that is played out in different ways. The reality is that we are always dating a variety of people to determine how compatible they are. If you meet someone and realize they are “intellectually challenged” or dumb as a box of rocks, is it a deal breaker?
Intelligence is sexy but sometimes people try to downplay their smarts, education, and knowledge because they don’t want to come across too nerdy. (As if being nerdy is a bad thing!) Is it wise to pretend you are less smart as not to intimidate someone who isn’t?
My friend Jay was on a date with a young woman who admitted that she never read books. No e-books, books on tape, or anything. Ever. Obviously, this would be a deal breaker for some people, but I think she would find a lot of men who would be fine with her lack of reading.
How important is it for you to date someone who is your intellectual equal?
