I don't think that person is stupid, but there is a gap between that respectful baseline and compatibility in terms of a life partner ).
Any highly educated man who insists on only dating women with an equivalent level of education (or income for that matter), is in my opinion not only being stupid by cutting off a massive portion of potential options but is likely to be an insufferable narcissistic jackass.
I have noticed a lot of college educated women list a degree as a dating requirement. I was wondering if any women are having trouble finding enough men who meet their requirements or are you perfectly happy dating men with lower educational achievements.

But I know people who are very successful and happy without a degree.
