I have seen this written on some girl's dating profiles and it confuses me. I'm not just talking in the preferences tab but in the profile descriptions something like saying that their date must be smart so a bachelor's is required and then in parenthesis saying that an associate's doesn't count.
Is this a common thing for a lot of women or am I thinking that the girl is just thinking of her dream guy and her idea of "Mr. Perfect?" I know girls have their own preferences and all but I have mixed opinions on this. Like I can understand they want a guy pursuing a job and all so seeing them in school shows character. Plus I see like every 2-3 profiles is a profile of a girl trying to become a teacher. So I can see someone wanting someone who really likes education. But another side of me makes it feel like they want guys to send them a resume or something which is very off-putting and makes it feel like dating them is a job and not a shared set of happy experiences. Like I can understand a bookworm wanting a bookworm to date but I can also get a sense that the girl is limited and possibly stuck up because so many people out there go for trades or are extremely successful only having a high school diploma.
So I'd like opinions on this. I personally would not be interested in them. Plus do you think these girls if they met someone in person that they'd not be looking at their degree in the same way that they'd check online?

I don't mind an educated guy. What matters to me is his personality, the way he carries himself, his dressing style, whether he is humourous-can I have an intelligent debatable conversation with him. Whether he makes me happy is more important. The fact he's educated comes in handy since we can talk about subjects of interest and whether he enjoys his job, why he chose that career pathway, etc0
