    We all study courses. These courses give us skills. Now when I say skills I refer to skills that can pick you up the opposite sex (or the same sex). Let me give you an example; one who studies literature might woo a girl by their impressive knowledge of Shakesperian Culture. Whilst a Maths student might have enough logical enigma to be witty.

    As far as experiences go, have you had any like this, where you've actually used a skill derived from a past subject studied to gain an advantage over something in any way?

    There are lots of qualities that different woman find attractive in different men. However most would find knowledge/intelligence an attractive quality.

    Showing a girl your knowledge of poetry may help you woo a girl, however if she find physics interesting and you explain what the higgs boson is and how finding it/not finding it affects our knowledge of the world then, she would find you hugely interesting/intelligent as well.

    To each their own....


    But to answer you question in the long run everyone is attracted to someone who is socially adept. If you have no knowledge and therefore nothing to talk about you are going to be boring. I guarantee everyone has spoken about what they do/study to someone else during the process of attempting to "woo" that person because it's a large part of who you are and you're trying to show them who you are.
