This can be important to some people. Generally in my view it’s good to be on the same intellectual level as your partner (I have learned the hard way). However, many men find really clever ladies to be intimidating. Some clever ladies know this and may have learned to cover it up.
Obviously, the level of education is no reflection of a person’s intellect, in the negative sense. Yes, OK, if they have a doctorate then it’s a sign of high intellect, though you can meet some very clever people who lack basic common sense! All brains and no common sense as they say. On the other hand, some very clever people have never progressed to a high educational level because of their life’s circumstances.
I did get to know, briefly, a lady who didn’t progress beyond high school, but ended up as an aerospace engineer and who is now writing a doctoral thesis.
So, if educational attainment is important to you, then don’t necessarily pass by the lady because of the tick in her educational box.
