Thank you to those who answered honestly about liking that a person is educated. I was asking because the individuals I have met here and at school do not appear to have goals for the future. I wondered that if they were intimidated by girls who do have goals. It's simple.
If you're going to comment about looks being an issue, you probably shouldn't have a cartoon as you profile picture.
Based on a lot of interactions with the girls on my campus I get a feeling that an absurd amount of them are there just to hunt for a future husband more than actually work towards creating a career. To be fair I also think a large majority of the guys are just there to continue partying and extend their childhood.
Being college educated doesn't really mean much other than that you were willing to show up to class and at minimum get passing grades. And that's coming from someone's who's going to graduate soon. Nothing to be intimidated about really.
No, I think it's awesome for a girl to have an education. In fact, I'd be more worried if she didn't. I'd be afraid that she'd never be able to get a good enough job to be able to pay for existing.
I don't mean to come off as selfish, but even if I actually wanted to pay for everything, with most jobs in the modern world, you just can't. It's mathematically impossible. And it would put a strain on the relationship. Maybe it was possible before, in the post-WW2 era through the '90s or so. But it's not easy to find a job where only the man working a regular job is enough to pay for everyone.
i would say it is a plus, I don't know why mainly but i would love a girl who was intelligent. i did psychology and when a girl tells me she went to college or passed a subject equally hard and tedious as your own its a mutual experience, and college certainly changed me for the better, im more mature, organised and open minded and having someone who also has also adopted these traits in college is a plus from me.
No I'm not at all intemidated by a woman of education at all. Book smarts is all fine and well , but without application it's still just that. Life's lessons go a long way in developing ones mind as well as preparing one to service in the big world. If said woman has both the knowledge and experience then she is indeed a force to be recond with.
I thinks its hilarious you assume that the reason men aren't interested in you is because of the fact you have a college degree :D
Most women end up getting a degree, so if your assumption is true that must mean men are intimidated of most women... or maybe there's some other aspect of your personality that blows and that's what turns men away from you.
Also disinterest doesn't equal intimidation. Its also kinda arrogant to think "oh he doesn't want to date me, he must be intimidated of my awesomeness"
No, I prefer an intelligent, educated woman who has interests that don't involve what the Kardashians are doing. I've known some girls who were pretty good-looking but that I just had no interest in because they were so petty and shallow - like 23 going on 14.
well.. i know a guy, a friend who is feels useless or ( maybe intimidated even) kos his wife is better educated and better career wise. in a much higher designation, and a better salary. So it might happen. I dont think it will happen to me. each guy is different. you can't really stereotype.
I am 21, not a college graduate and has no intentions to be one. I am not intimidated by them at all, I just find it funny that sometimes that some of them assume they are smarter than me just because they graduated from college, in most cases, it turns out that's not the case.:)
So many women go to college these days. Hardly rare. No degree but a PhD really intimidates anyone. It is when a woman is very smart on top of the degrees, like went to the Ivy Leagues that guys seem to care a bit.
My personal experience says no. I've dated several guys without degrees.
No. I'd think it's preferred that women are college educated.
Nah, unless he's incredibly insecure.
