my new girlfriend is 18 years old.
She told me she doesn't know the difference between a liberal and a conservative.
She said she doesn't know who Mitt Romney is. and she doesn't know who Al Gore is.
she says she gets the words 'condiment' and 'continent' mixed up.
the list goes on and on.
I believe in accepting people for who they are, but come on.
It seems like everytime we have an extended conversation all I want to do is facepalm the entire time.
But she's extremely beautiful and really fun to be around.
what do I do?

I know 18 is pretty young, but if you look 10 years from now, would you see yourself marrying this same "type" of a girl? I'm not saying the same exact girl necessarily, but if you say no, then yeah, just end it. Yeah, marriage isn't something people really think about at that age, however, dating a girl who may not seem "ideal" to you may become a habit. If you want someone "fun to be around", that's what friends are for. And yes, attraction is important in many cases, but there are many attractive people out there. An intellectual connection is key when it comes to relationships because it allows the two individuals to engage in proper discussion, which usually takes up more than 3/4 of "the relationship life". Two people get to know each other by "talking", and "talking" is what brings them closer together each and every time it happens (yeah, not including arguments and stuff.. but you know what I mean). I don't know, honestly... not knowing a few things may seem okay, but it could get to a point where I would get really annoyed. Good luck, though.2
