I am a young woman of 26 who loves astronomy. I am a post graduate art student and have fallen for an astrophysicst I met though my local astronomical society when he came along to star parties or to give talks. He is not generally regarded as handsome and I must admit when I first met him I was not immediately attracted to him but after getting to know him better I saw him with new eyes. He radiates such intelligence, kindness and humility that he has that rarest of qualities, a kind of true beauty which does not diminish with age. He is 33, single and little shy although he always seeks me out to say hello and chat at these events so I think that he does like me a little as a friend at least. He is very clever and holds a post doctoral position at a good university here in the UK. I want so much to know him better but I worry that he may not be satisfied with a woman who could not fully or even partly understand his work. I do not think I am stupid, I was bright at school, I enjoyed science but shone at art and music and studied art at degree level and on to a post graduate degree in fine art which I feel is the correct path for me. I am still actively involved in amateur astronomy and enjoy reading popular science books by writers such as John Gribbin and Roger Penrose. However I could not pretend to have a firm grasp on any of it without the math. I am told I am pretty and I have a decent figure. I am a warm, loving woman who would go to the ends of the earth for the right man and if I thought that this man would have me I'd give myself to him in a heartbeat. But could a logical scientist be satisfied with an irrational artist? Is that enough to make him happy or do men like that, like you perhaps need a woman who can truly understand their mind? Would I ever be enough for him? Perhaps I should just stop worrying and ask him out? What do you think?
