Baby found dead in Stockbridge, police say

Should you play it dumb?

We all can name many shallow reasons not to date someone but would you dumb someone for being too intelligent? I ask because I have heard some women worry about appearing too smart and turning guys off. They actually try to dumb down in hopes of making a good impression. This could be misleading but some people risk it anyway.

When I asked one lady why she downplays her intellect on dates, she said she didn’t want to appear boring and dull. She is a Ph.D researcher but she just tells guys she is a teacher to keep it simpler. I worry she will end up with an idiot boyfriend because she hid her intelligence and overlook the lack of intelligence in the men.

Have you ever considered dumbing down on a date? Would you let that facade go on beyond the first three dates?
