No seriously I think I could ... as long as they weren't someone who never read a book in their entire life. Reading is something that I choose to do in private and I tend not to discuss it or involve others. That's my choice, and I have other hobbies. For me not to date someone who doesn't like reading would be like someone not dating me because I don't like carpentry.
Having a non-reader as a soulmate and life-partner: NO. I hate double standards, but I am guilty of that here My soulmate and life-partner is someone who shares every aspect of my life, and if he's not a reader, he will never totally understand me. I'm glad to say that my current partner, reads and thinks more indepth than me, and it's always awe-inspiring when getting into a book discussion with him (it always veers into lots of thought-provoking areas which I would never have been capable of doing so on my own).
however i could never date a guy who interrupted me while i was reading, that really winds me up and it is so disrespectful!
My point is: Not to discriminate. I have a boyfriend who absolutely loathes reading, but he happens to be one, if not the most intelligent person I know. He does annoy me sometimes, but where the hell will you ever find a boy who doesn't.

Stupidest? It's ironic how you use that word to describe a stupid person.
Personally, I find myself more attracted to readers than non-readers.
Most people I know, want to talk about what they watched on T.V. If they read, they read the most popular best sellers. My husband reads Sci Fi., and my particular reading interests, are not widely common. That with being a very slow reader, I don't do well in conversation.
