Dating an uneducated man Anonymous erotic chat
be careful Reading your Op again Sparklet, I think that the fact you have to pussyfoot around him - being careful not to be too assertive etc means that you are adjusting your personality to keep him happy which will be very difficult to maintain in the long run and could well end up with you resenting him.
Or you will revert to your real personality and he will wonder what the hell has happened! Glad there are some of you who don't condemn me - as far as I can see, I'm just being a realist.
He sounds lovely from the first paragraph and if I were you, I might be inclined to stifle my doubts about the second.
For you, does level of education and interest in the same music and books trump being gentle, kind and fab in bed?
So I would say that although it shouldn't matter to either of you, it clearly does matter to both of you which could mean later unless you sort it out. Ps, the problems your relationship faces are greatly oversimplified by saying that you went to university and he did not.
He feels he didn't have the opportunities he would have liked.

Extra lessons, motivational holidays for good results etc...
I can't believe how many graduates know nothing about anything other than the subject they studied (and after 20 years, little about that too Look, it can be called snobby if you like, but the bottom line is that it's an issue for the OP. You don't have to move in with him or marry him.
I think an additional problem you face is that many people find it perfectly acceptable for a man to marry a woman less well educated than he is (women are still seen by a lot of people to exist for men's benefit and a woman doesn;t need an education to service a man domestically and sexually) - but an educated woman dating a less-educated, or younger, or poorer man is still seen as not quite right (the man is supposed to be the superior in relatinships) and you will (and probably already do) get comments about how you could do better - your friends patronize him and his friends think you need putting in your place etc.
you have every right to doubt, as this relationship will probably go well for a period of time and then it will come to a crunch where you find your self educating him just to have a conversation, i made the same mistake by staying with someone like that for a few years he was sweet, kind and a great lover but things ran dry you could try teaching him and broadening his horizons as i did but i eventually became his back bone and it broke....
