Smart Dating — Would You Try It?

There are a plethora of online dating services out there, yet people are still skeptical to use them. Sure, they have a negative stigma attached, but it is possible to find the partner of your dreams with a click of a mouse, especially with sites like Degreedate.com. This education-oriented dating site which was launched in 2004, is now being relaunched with new security features and an upgraded design. It's geared towards a more mature, educated demographic so men and women can meet others who value the same type of pedigree. According to Cully Perlman, the site's founder,

The site appeals to more mature people who know what they're looking for. It's not like Facebook, which appeals to a younger demographic.

I know some of you are all for meeting people online, but for those of you who are still cynical or worried about meeting questionable men, would you try a site like this that guarantees education and intelligence? If you ask me, brains are a big turn on!

If the site guarantees education AND intelligence, I wouldn't mind using the website. But then again, a college education doesn't guarantee you get a smart and mature guy, you just get one who can file his own taxes. hehe.

If you are going to do the online dating thing, then I think this would be just as good as anyother site. It be just like a christian dating site, or whatever. i dont see the problem. And it really bothers me that people have this stigma about online dating. My bf and I met online 5 years ago, and for a while there we had a "fake" story to tell people how we met, because anytime we told someone that we met online, it was like the immediatly dismissed our relationship as being real. i think online dating is a wonderful thing,(if you are smart and careful about it, of course) It opens up a whole new world of people that you never would have met before.

To me, it would be as good as trying any other site; just more geared towards someone who has the education someone might want. So sure; why not.

First, what Gemini said. There are plenty of Duh!heads with degrees. The other thing that bugs a little is that my mom used to say "Look for a Nerd!" without taking into account the fact that the WOW and DD nerds were looking for the same Lara Croft-bod bimbettes as the stereotypical fratboys. (No reading into that; I'm a sorority girl, y'all know what I'm talking about.) Nonetheless, I guess as a geek girl, it could cull the herd a little.

I'm a Gemini and I'm all about mental stimulation! However, just because this website is for people with degrees, doesn't mean they're going to be mature. Sorry! On a more positive note, this could calm down a lot of bickering from people whom complain about having a great career and being with someone that bags groceries all day.
