But if blogging were any indicator I would totally understand why everyone would think that I am.
I got an email from a certain blogger
I wrote to ages ago through the mormon friendster equivalent that I am embarrassed to mention. I haven't been there in ages- but that is largely because I haven't really been on the internet in ages unless it is through the intranet at work- and that is basically just to check tech specs of computers I'm selling.
I don't blog or read blogs or read message boards anymore at all. I sit in front of a computer for 10+ hours every day at work- so I usually don't do that when I get home.
instead I vege out and watch a movie.
soooo much better.
How the crap do people with families work full time and
But this previously mentioned email mentioned internet people in our age group being intimidated by JL's high level of education and not really wanting to talk to her.
It made me think about that type of thing IRL and over the internet. In terms of possible romantic interest it does seem like for a woman to be working on or have advanced degrees turns a lot of guys off real early on.
I don't really understand that whole not wanting a girl who is well educated- but I suppose it is intimidating to be in your late 20s and barely through a bachelors degree and have the person you are talking to be about the same age but with Dr. in front of their name.
So where does this separation come from? Is it intimidation? Is it assumptions about what a well educated women must be like? Is it as simple as not wanting to date a woman who is by worldly measure clearly much smarter than you?
I'm not sure. I dated a PhD student when I first got back from my mission and I think I would probably date someone with an advanced degree.
So- as a question to the readership here- women have you felt snubbed because of your high level of education? Men, has a woman being well educated prevented you from pursuing her? If so, why?
Blogs are supposed to say something just ask something- aren't they? Sorry, I haven't done this in a while. Just put up with me and answer the questions.
