Personally I wouldn't. I would maybe go out with someone studying Physics.

I think it's largely to do with the fact you wouldn't be able to talk to about
the subject you study to someone not studying it or something related.

Plus I kind of think if you don't study the subject I'm studying then you're an idiot. It's sort of like the xkcd subject rated in purity drawing.

ummmm OK... full of yourself much?

Every guy on my course is gay or too 'feminine' for me so I wouldn't date anyone on my course.

I know this really beautiful, intelligent, funny girl and she's into me and she's amazing. Unfortunately she studies law and my parents only want me to date girls that study medicine

A persons major plays absolutely no factor in my interest in them. I've found that learning about other peoples interests can be really fun.

Yes I would. :confused: Personally if they were doing the same subject I'd be nervous about competitiveness and stuff.

I think, unless they had a very different area of specialty from me, it would be a very bad idea for me to date someone who studied History... being a bit competitive I would end up getting into arguments over daft historical things. :p:

I would much rather date someone with different interests, but if a Mr Darcy lookalike who also studies History happens to come knocking I won't say no.... :ninja:

I would do, and would probably prefer it.
I'm quite competitive, and I'd much rather wind down from a day listening to what my partner's learnt about 'Twelfth Night' than Quantum Theory.
I used to think I'd need someone to be doing something really academic, but as long as they have a personality like mine, I'm pretty happy

I definitely would... I'm not going to narrow my already quite limited choice! Besides, I like having an excuse to learn about an area I hadn't previously looked at before.

The only way I'd draw the line is if they talked about nothing else, and couldn't work out when I wanted an abbreviated, layman's answer to a subject-related question rather than a bloody thesis. I've met guys like this before. Dedication is attractive, obsession is not!

I manage to talk to all sorts of people who don't have a PhD in physical chemistry, maybe it's an uncanny ability of mine to know something other than my specialism, I don't know...

Personally I've never dated anyone with a science degree so I don't know what it would be like, but I've never had any problems talking about things with my girlfriends.
Plus I kind of think if you don't study the subject I'm studying then you're an idiot. It's sort of like the xkcd subject rated in purity drawing.
Become a string theorist - they love that kind of attitude.

Of course I would.

I intend to study a maths degree or a maths related degree and I wouldn't care if the guy wasn't doing the same.

Having said that, I would probably feel less attracted to an arts student because the type of intellect would be different and I can't even count the amount of times when I've tried to explain how Physics is more difficult than art & design.

But if a I liked a guy, I wouldn't let his choice of degree stop me from being with him.

I can see where you are coming from though.

Well, it's not like that is an undisputed fact, tbh, far from it in fact. Again I'd recommend string theory for you too.

Some people really need to broaden their horizons and lose the superiority complexes.
