I’m going on a date with a lawyer tonight. We seem to get on well, but mum says that lawyers are intelligent people and they have the killer instinct. I’m intelligent, but I’m not very aggressive by nature. Nor do I have the degree of class, sophistication, ambition, or intelligence that a lawyer would have. Could a very intelligent, classy person go for someone similar, but less so than they are?
