Setting low expectations for a date makes it a lot easier for them to leave room for an impression. This guy set low expectations for his date. He didn’t expect her to be intelligent. When she was able to hold a conversation about religion and humanity, he was blown away.
Maybe he never dated an intelligent woman, so he didn’t expect her to be one. Either way, kudos to her for surprising him. Still, it doesn’t seem like he’s worthy of a date, since she had to work her way to get him to have a conversation with her. Honestly, she needs to date someone as open as she is, not someone who doesn’t think she’s smart enough to hold a conversation (via Nature World Today).
