Are you an academic?

Or have you ever dated one? I've been dating a great guy. He's handsome, sexy, charming, kind, etc. He's also brilliant. He's a doctor/professor/smartypants with several advanced degrees and he's the director of his department in the university where he's been appointed or whatever. He seems to like me but I'm nowhere near his academic equal. I'm intelligent enough in my way. I have an undergrad degree (big whoop), have a variety of interests and activities that I'm involved in, and can carry on a reasonably intelligent conversation about a variety of topics. But his brain kind of intimidates me. It makes me feel a little insecure. He doesn't boast about his credentials and is actually quite humble. When we're together it's lovely. We do things and talk about things that most couples do and talk about. I guess I'm worried that he'll get bored with me or think I'm stupid. And how could I ever relate to his friends and colleagues? Are there any smartypants/non-smartypants success stories on Datalounge?

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
