I’ve had this conversation many a time on a first date, in a bar, or on a bus. If your conversation went something like this, don’t expect a date…
boy: so where did you go to school?
girl: oh, I graduated from (insert good school here).
boy: oh, wow, I bet you shelled out a lot for that education!
girl: well, I had scholarships, so really it wasn’t too bad.
boy: ah, so you’re one of those really smart girls, huh?
This may not sound that bad, but seriously, hearing this tells me two very key things:
1) boy is intimidated by smart girls.
2) boy is not smart and/or not confident in his abilities.
Neither of these are qualities I want in a guy. Ladies? Any similar stories?
