Am I afraid of looking stupid to my SO? Maybe Im afraid of being laughed at, or thought less of, when I do things others might consider "stupid". If I think about it though, it is impossible to live up to others standards of how "smart" I should be. Being human, there will be moments when I have outright genius, and other moments when I cant even seem to tie my shoe right - and plenty of moments in between. If a certain amount of intelligence was necessary for love, then wouldnt it mean that people with mental handicaps or small children are incapable of love? I know that isnt true.
We all have our own unique mixture of talents and things we struggle with. If someone treasures "being smart" more than a hug or a kind word, how "smart" are they really being?
