is your perception that people only date smart people being skewed slightly by how your browsing a website that obviously attracts people who are more studious?

I wouldn't, no. But that's because I'm not really good at anything apart from academics so I feel that it would be hard to find things in common.

If they're doing other meaningful things with their life and aren't on their PS5 all day, yeah.

But I find intelligence attractive, so idk🤷*♀️.

Depends what their other qualities are. I find "Doesn't like studying at all" negative if that translates into "therefore never studies" for what I hope very obvious reasons. If they just don't like studying but have clear goals in their life that they are working hard towards I really am not that fussed. Both of us don't need to have degrees etc imo

The education system is simply not suited to all. Providing they are successful and ambitious in their own way, I wouldn't mind. Though if they are complacent with doing the bare minimum in life, I can't think of anything more unattractive.

NO. I don't want to date/marry someone who'll not understand, 'I'll integrate your curves tonight." or " I can put your inertia in motion, tonight".

I have dated guys that left school before the age of 17 with few or no academic qualifications and no plans to ever apply for any uni courses.
Would consider dating a non-academic guy with: a strong work ethic, history of regular employment and some ambitions for the future.
