  • I will get a lot of hate for this, but most guys don't care about that stuff. A job, and education are status symbols. Women care about status a lot more than guys do. This is why I think it is funny that women that are educated and have a flashy career think that somehow it entitles her to a better man. They talk about wanting a man that is their equal, not realizing they haven't raised their value as women at all. As long as the woman isn't a burden on the guy, most guys won't care. That is really the extent of what most guys care about when it comes to how smart a woman is.

    • It's cool to think like this, I don't go to college and a lot of people think of me like stupid because of that. Girls who go to college think is important and only want to date degree guy, I was thinking guy are the same.

    • No, most guys don't think the same as women. There will always be exceptions, but for the most part guys won't care. Those women with degrees will all fight over the men they see as their equals, meanwhile you will actually be on equal footing as them, even if they don't realize it.

  • Sure. Higher education has nothing to do with her personnality.

  • First, I echo the other opinions with: What the heck makes someone going to college smart? What's smart about going to college, racking up a huge debt, only to find no one will hire you and that what you really want in life is a family?

    Second, if they're family oriented, what good would a career path do them?

    Do we share the same values, do we connect, are we attracted to one another, and do we bring complimentary strengths to the relationship. If I can have that and she never went to college and has a simple job? Frick yes, I would date and marry such a woman.

  • I don't know. Perhaps? It really just depends on if she's nice as a person. In fact this set up might even be better - we both earn but I'm the main breadwinner and she gets to stay home with the kids more and won't lose out on much if she stays at home when the kids are just born.

  • This is a tough question. On the one hand, intelligence usually means the person will be able to come up with interesting things to talk about. This is very important to me because I like having good, stimulating conversations. Without smarts, I feel like I'd have to do all of the heavy lifting conversationally and it would get tiring. Intelligence also usually means the person is able to have an at least okay job and is able to pay for themselves, and would not need me to have to work double the amount I am working already to pay for myself, in order to pick up the income slack.

    That being said, intelligence isn't the only trait I'd look for, and even if they have it, it can be countered by bad personality traits. Intelligence isn't that great if the person just isn't nice, or if they are intelligent but rebellious to the point of stupidity. That's the problem with intelligence - sometimes, smart people can be cold and condescending and think they are better than you and don't need to understand you. And know-it-all attitudes are very aggravating.

    Then again, it's really important to me to have a partner who inspires me, who makes me feel like they are passionate about something and not a bump on a log. I want someone who inspires and encourages me to keep going with my interests and not just give up and settle for whatever. I want someone to bounce ideas off of, who helps me learn and grow, who would somehow, in some way help me with my interests. I don't know that a less-smart girl could help me with this, and it's a pretty high priority on what I want in a girlfriend.

    • I don't know. I have to say, I'm not thrilled about the idea of dating a less-intelligent girl. She'd have to really make up for it in other ways.

  • Just because you don't go to college and have a simple job doesn't mean you're stupid.

  • Education does not necessarely reflect her intelligence. If she doesn't have tertiary education, it's natural she would be working a simple job, what else can she do? What matters is, she makes her life work and that's smart to me. I would date her.

    What is not smart is only complaining and doing nothing about her problems. I would not hate her.

  • None of those things make someone stupid or smart lol. I'd date you as long as you are not so inferior to the point where I have to spoon feed you conversations.

  • Intelligence and education are not the same thing at all. Elon Musk dropped out of college to become one t=of the richest people on earth, and he is also reportedly fantastically intelligent.

  • not going to college doesn't mean dumb
    I've done debates with college students and made them look stupid,
    I left one guy quiet cause he could say whatever he wanted but couldn't show the proof, but yes being dumb is a draw back for me, but not a deal breaker

  • No, I love intelligent girls too much, but I don't judge intelligence based on job or education. Depression can make people underachieve. I judge intelligence by talking to someone.

  • Hell no. But the characteristics you mentioned don't define smart. Almost all of us worked "simple" jobs at one point or the other and going to college is a struggle these days due to how expensive tuition is.

  • Never going to college doesn't make you dumb, just as going to college doesn't make you smart. Having a "simple job" is of no influence either. But I would not date someone who isn't remotely intelligent.

    • that's the opinion of people in my country, i didn't go to college and when I said to people my job they just think of me like a stupid girl who are not smart enough for having a career. For me being a housewives is a full time job, my mother was doing that.
