how is that a small complaint? How do you expect for her to hold out a conversation with him if she wasn't amused? I know I'd get bored and "complain" to my friends the next day about how stupid he was.

Probably not #1. OPs own statistics suggests that she's using the word wrongly. Why would everyone else not understand her?

OP said she used the word "decipher" but she didn't state in what way. So there's no way of telling if she used it right or not.

I also do believe this FML makes more sense for her date to leave her with the bill by acting dumb and senseless.

Just because a person doesn't know one word doesn't mean s/he is a moron. I have plenty of friends and family who may not know the meaning of a particular word, but they aren't stupid. They ask and learn what it means. I don't know what else the guy did during the date, but not knowing the meaning of a word shouldn't be "the last straw".

@Welshite : I agree that not knowing one word doesn’t make you a moron. However I think that in a healthy relationship, you need to be intellectually compatible. I don’t mean you need the same level of book smarts or things like that. Just that they need to be “smart” enough to hold a conversation with you in which you can enjoy their company & respect their mind. If OP really values vocabulary and the dude did other things that made her feel they weren't intellectually compatible, I think

No offensive but decipher isn't really an uncommon word. I don't believe use of that word means you have a large vocabulary.

Having a large vocabulary does not actually make you smart, it just makes you SOUND smarter. Anyone can memorize a few complicated words, it's not a particularly difficult skill. Stop pretending it makes you superior.

Albert Einstein has a quote along the lines of "if you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it well enough". What I take from that is that using large words to talk to people who won't understand them is both stupid and elitist. Probably the opposite effect you're going for.

Oooor maybe they have their heads full of things like chemistry or rocket science instead of People magazine, and do not care about the size of their vocabulary because they have other things to do with their life. As I've written above, memorizing a bunch of words is pretty easy, parrots can pull that off. So please, stop judging people because they do not know the meaning of a word that you do.

Sorry 13, but your incomplete and badly worded first sentence kind of negated any point about smart people problems you were trying to make.
