    Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

    But it depends how we are measuring intelligence anyway.

    This is a huge problem with girls.
    Intelligent ones are normally not that attractive, the attractive ones don't have much else to them apart from looks, and all the good-looking intelligent ones are either insane or taken.

    Intelligence really isn't that much of a problem, but it'd be nice to be able to talk about work with them...as girls I've dated usually have really different academic interests to me...

    It depends on the individual person.
    Studying beauty therapy doesn't make you unintelligent... if you want to do something you'll do it, no matter how intelligent you are!
    But I would say from experience, if you can tell there's a major difference it's not a fun relationship.
    I had a major vodka related incident this new year's eve and kissed a guy I never would have normally gone for. First impressions, he was cute, but talking to him when sober I realised how different we were. I guess it's a personal thing, his constant wrong spelling and cluelessness about everything I'm passionate about just made me think no. I could DEFINITELY tell there was a big difference between us (not just academically... we had NOTHING in common)
    I don't mean to sound like a snob!
    It depends on the person really... and remember there are so many ways to measure intelligence.
    If you like her and you get on well... go for it. You never know, she might be being trained to give massages!

    My boyfriend got CDU in his A levels and is doing a vocational course at a higher education college atm, whereas I'm on a course at university that I had to achieve AAA for. We've been together for nearly 7 months now, so... yeah.

    Intelligence means a lot more than grades.

    Also loving the irony in the OP's post.

    yup in your case, i dont think there would be any type of issue...intelligence is not the important thing, she just has to have some sort of common sense and maturity (maybe).

    personally, i prefer guys to be intelligent

    I really do think it matters, i'm not talking in the academic sense but you do need to be on a similar level to connect. Been there, tried it - it doesn't work
    Looks like youv'e already made your mind up then!!

    Bleak generalisation there :/
    You could say it's a huge problem with boys too!

    I find it ironic that you're branding someone as "very less intelligent than you".

    Hmmm. Not if it meant they couldn't reasonably talk with me about the things I'm interested in, especially things like certain academic and current issue topics. But I think they'd have to be really unintelligent for that to be the issue, I don't really talk about stuff like that to any deep level.

    You can't talk about girls as a whole without generalising :dontknow:

    And yes, the same can be said for guys.

    :O Your grammar is atrocious!!

    If I were her, I wouldn't want to go out with you, especially if you are going to be so stuck up about intelligence. How do you know that you're more intelligent than her? Maybe she just wants to do Beauty Therapy because she's interested in that, rather than doing a degree. Don't judge people by what they want to do.

    Oh, here you go:

    Would you date someone that is less intelligent than you? In my case, there is a girl that has a crush on me (she's cute and good looking) but she is training to be a beauty therapist, where as I want to study at the University of Glasgow where grades are high (I'm not trying to be rude). Would you date her if you were in my shoe's?
