she doesn't know the difference between astronomy and astrology.
Is she willing to learn the difference?
Does she know how to use proper capitalization?
If I would have automatically broken up with somebody because they didn't know something I did, I would have missed out on many amazing times.
Different things are important to different people, that should be obvious, perhaps she should break up with you?
If someone is good to me, and we can share some of our likes, I don't care if they know what CMBR is. If they tell me how my day is going to go because I was born a fish, I might give a little eyebrow though.
Does she know more about the latter than the former? If so, dump her asap.
she def knows more about astrology than astronomy, she basically didn't know it was "connected" to physics.
but shes hot so.....
I think you just found your answer then
I don't think my wife can tell you the difference between a derivative or an integral. Heck, I'm nearly positive that her science knowledge ends somewhere around 10th grade. Nevertheless, she attended NYU and knows more about gardening than I could ever comprehend. What matters more in a partner is not what they know, but how you two get along and interact with each other. If you look at her as dumb because she doesn't know the difference, then it probably isn't going to workout because you have formed such a low opinion of her that will probably only escalate as time goes on.
This kind of comment makes me think she should dump you and be better for it.
Aside from that I agree with Marnemath. Relationships don't have to rely much on shared interests over complementary personalities.
I agree with MarneMath. That being said if something like this is making you question the relationship, maybe there are bigger problems to begin with?
Perhaps it is not her lack of knowledge, in an intellectual sense, that bothers you so; but rather the self-importance of your own affection toward science and your hidden personal insecurity of that interest that is the root of the problem. This causes you to perceive her flippancy and levity toward your "hobby" as an affront, and you fear the devaluation of one of your life's pursuits.
One cannot gauge the substance of a person based on a single aspect.
I hear they've got a top ten gardening program.
i just dont want dumb kids if that makes sense....
You have about 3/2 of a year to decide as that's how long most relationships last.
You could ask her to do a reading about your future together and then you'll know for sure :-)
The level of intellect your kids would have will be based on how they are raised which is both the mom and dads responsibility. Like me and my girlfriend's dog, she's able to shake hands with strangers. Smart little ***** she is
But they would be 'hot' so it would not matter.
That is creepy on so many levels
I had that issue with a girl. After a while, she learned, but still did it to annoy me and/or slipped every now and then. It most certainly is not on its own a good enough reason to break up with someone.
