    Don't think being unable to converse is the problem. The problem is having the patience to keep the converstion going and actually being able to enjoy the conversation.
    You don't need to have 'intelligent' conversations with the person you're going out with. If you have a desperate need for them, just go talk to your friends. Relationships aren't built on whether you can hold an intelligent conversation with someone... from experience I've been out with intelligent girls and you don't spend most of your time talking about the current economic situation in the UK.. you actually have fun conversations!

    Please consider your own intelligence first before judging others.

    Not built entirely on that but I'd say some would fail without it, it depends on the people.

    Like I said, each to his own.

    Yes, because intelligence isn't everything. Just because you can't have a conversation with someone about 'intelligent' things doesn't mean they're not a lovely person.
    Intelligence isn't everything, but I can't see myself ever entering into a long-term relationship with someone who appears to be much less intelligent than myself. Sure, she might be beautiful, but I think I would have a difficult time relating to her on any level.

    Just because someones a beauty therapist doesn't mean she isn't intelligent...

    I woudn't not go out with someone because they weren't very intelligent because thats no reflection on how they are as a person. I wouldn't date someone who I thought was an absolute moron but plenty of "intelligent" people can fall into that category, you included OP

    "very less intelligent"
    "were grades are higher"

    Sounds like you are equally matched.

    Seriously though, being a beauty therapist doesn't mean she's not intelligent.

    Actually, I bet I know who you are. Do you want to do medicine?

    Hi,

    Would you date someone that is very much less intelligent than you ??. In my case there is this girl that has a crush on me (she's cute and good looking) but she training for a beauty therapist where as i ;want to study at univ Glasgow were grades are higher . (i'm not trying to be rude). And would you date her if you were in my shoe's
    The fact that your thread is entitled "would you date a person that was very less intelligent than you" doesn't sound all that intelligent! No capital "W" and who says "Very less"?! And you put "were grades are higher" What's that mean?! Do you mean "Where"?!

    I did this once, but I just didn't feel like I didn't have anything in common with him.
    However, I would NEVER ignore my feelings for a person just because they are 'less intelligent'. If we had things in common and had lots of fun together, I think that is what matters.

    And remember, IQ has nothing to do with maturity.

    Good luck!

    Who cares? My boyfriend didn't even go to college - wasn't suited to academics. It doesn't make him any less intelligent than me, and that girl is not any less intelligent than you just because she wanted to be a beauty therapist.

    Anyone who witters on about intelligence as if it's the only human quality of value has precisely *nothing* to offer in the relationship stakes.

    Sometimes relationships work just because of a good social connection and physical attraction. You don't have to select partners based on matching IQ scores, and if you tried you'd be missing out on a huge pool of potentially good relationships.

    Saying that, I probably wouldn't date a guy who'd never heard of Dostoevsky.
    I have never heard of him. Is he more distinguished than Tolstoy or Jean-Jacques Rousseau??!

    What like you? "Very less" what on earth is that supposed to mean?! Umm, I wouldn't date someone who was completely thick as I'd want someone with a decent job. I'd like to date someone who was about the same as me.

    No, I wouldn't. I would look down on her and every time I talked about something "academic" like politics she would get really bored. However, I wouldn't care if she is somewhat more stupid or more intelligent as long she is open minded.

    I think you would be missing out a huge pool of potentially good relationships if you demand that they have heard about Dostoevsky. Don't you think?
