So I'm no slouch in the brains department, but I have somehow gotten the attention of a Nuerophysicist... like head of a department in a reknowned hospital, interviews on National Geographic for groundbreaking research in his field... yeah. Like an alphabet behind his name.
He speaks in a down to earth way, though, not stuck up at all. Great sense of humor. Doesn't get all super smart unless he is talking about his research, then he gets excited (rightfully so, it is pretty cool stuff).
Question Now: one person average, the other brilliant... does this work? I personally get bored with people who don't challenge me intellectually. I am not stupid, but a Nuerophysicist I am not! Should I even encourage this?
I am just going to relax and enjoy the ride. We can't meet in person until next week, but he has been texting me all day, every day. It is fun debating with him everything from politics to religion. He seems a gentle soul but he isn't a pushover, either. I find myselgy genuinely intrigued; he isn't playing any games, just flat out likes me. Very refreshing. :)

Not all intelligence is equal. I say this as a published physicist - just being good at physics doesn't make me socially smart, or have the ability to debate why Scorsese long shots are overused and self-indulgent. I had to learn certain intelligences. Maybe there is something in you he wants because he doesn't have that. In my experience dating intelligent girls, they've usually been more socially awkward (and sometimes downright rude)... I get along amazingly with girls with far less education0
