Recently, I have joined the synchrotron club at my college. Almost everyone there is either a physics, engineering or a computer science major. I think some of the guys there are really cute, friendly and nice. I have a huge crush on one of them. But they always like to discuss classical dynamics of spinning tops, relativity and quantum mechanics. All the topics I have zero interest in or too dumb to grasp. One of the dude asked me out on a coffee date. I think he is physically attractive but he won't have any fun spending time with me.

Most of the time "smart people", don't talk about "smart stuff"... It's not really a big deal... There are plenty of other things to talk about. We try to keep it simple and fun, because it's not fun making people look stupid when you care about them. Most of the shit that floats around in my head, I can't even talk about with most people, because it's just too much trouble. For example on Easter, one of my brothers asked me something about what I do, and there's just no way he's be able to understand what I was talking about so I sort of dodge the question because I didn't want him to feel dumb (because he's insecure that way) even though he is "gifted"... My other brother didn't spare him and started talking about some other stuff, which I understood, but my other brother didn't... Then he felt awkwardly left out, which I thought was a shitty thing to do to him, but my other brother was happy because I'm the only one in the family that understands his domain on his level, and many people he works with don't even understand him... So, I think "smart people" tend to just try to keep it fun and simple, and then we go to our "crutches", those people that we know understand us, and talk about "smart stuff" with them...0

not knowing something someone else has studied and is interested in, does not mean your dumb or less intelligent. knowledge is not the same as intelligence. nor is interest. you may not get along bc you dont share interest but thats not about intellect. and no one knows everything, its really odd for anyone to be too smart for someone, just people who think they are. these are not good partner material bc they are judging instead of learning from the other. everyone has gift and their own brilliance. we are all unique and all have things to teach. i think its a bad sin if you feel stupid by comparison. he probably is helping you feel that way with his behavior. or you just heaver really low self esteem. but no he's not too smart for you.0
