I believe some of the best dating advice I ever heard from my parents was “Date someone who reads.” They were not so much hung up on degrees but they thought it was important to be with someone who was intelligent. At least someone who was intelligent enough to read regularly.
I think this was their way of making sure they wouldn’t end up with dumb grandchildren. It is good advice, though. I know a lot of couples who only have one partner with a desire to read and learn. I think a lot of people dumb down their intellect to make their partner more at ease.
If you met someone who didn’t read books and were proud to say it, would this be a turn off?
Have you ever felt the need to downplay your intellect for your date?
