I’ve been single for a long time now, which means I’ve been in the dating scene off and on (mostly on) for a long time now, as well. In that time, I have listened to so many dates tell me just “how dumb their ex” was. In fact, almost just as often, I hear people in relationships talk about “how dumb their ex” was. Heck, I’ve probably told people, “my ex was so dumb!” Haha.

Anyway… That got me to thinking, and I built this poll (full of little sub-polls) because I am sincerely curious as to what the end results will be… Whether you’re single or in a relationship, I bet we’ll all learn a few things here. Have fun with it, and it’s 100% anonymous, so I dare you to be 100% honest!

Before you answer the rest of the questions, ANSWER THIS… Don’t forget to click “vote.”

Was your ex smarter or dumber than you?

Intelligence is measured in so many different ways. Albert Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Let’s have a little fun. Now think about each of the following questions and answer it with blatant honesty…
NOTE: This is a “smarter or dumber” poll. You have to choose one or the other. There is no “equal” or “same” button with these. Be sure to hit “vote” after each!
