I think it depends more on you - you're not going to be having intelligent conversations, perhaps ever (this is a generalisation of course). It depends how important to you being able to connect with someone else on that intellectual level is. To be, it's almost everything. But connecting with someone intellectually, and booksmarts, are mutually exclusive. Even as someone with a high education (two degrees in physics, just not a doctorate) I actually find ti difficult to connect with girls currently doing their PhD's (I've dated 2, currently on my third when she gets back from overseas). It's more a personality thing. So no, I'm not uncomfortable, for me it's the norm. Note that the girls I've dated have been in veterinary scince/stats (sh'es a vet with research interests) and an English literary analysis. I can't *really* talk to them about what they do, because there's eight years of study and different protocols. They have a "different" education to me. And I find that interesting.1
