Do I date him or not???

I'm not sure if I should date this guy or not, so I figured I'd put it out there to see what you guys think.....

I've lived in my apartment for about four or five months, and I met him shortly after I moved in. He's one of the guys that maintains the complex. He had asked me out about a month or two ago, but I was seeing someone. And then he started seeing someone. Well now, we're both single and he wants to cook dinner for me. He seems very nice, he's cute, obviously has a job, seems to be rather close to his family and seems to genuinely care about people. I don't think he's very well educated, which is something I'm not used to because I typically date well educated men (he's not stupid by any means, but I can tell by the way that he speaks that he's probably not very educated....fairly basic vocabulary, occasionally uses words incorrectly) and I don't mean to seem like a snob because I don't think I am (and I'm no rocket scientist), but I usually date pretty smart men. He's told me that ever since he first met me, he thought I was very sweet and beautiful (which was very sweet of him to say).

I guess I'm just not sure if I should date him because we both live here and if things go badly, I'd have to deal with him on a regular basis. Anytime anything goes wrong with my house, he's the one I'd call to come and take a look at it.

So would you go out with him and throw caution to the wind, just see what happens? Would you date him cautiously, keeping things on a pretty casual level? Or would you flat out not do it??

THANKS so much your opinions!!!!!!!!!

    I said yes. If he breaks your heart, you can always push him down a flight of stairs.

    If he has a good personality and can keep a decent conversation going, then the amount of education he has shouldn't be as important. I do know what you mean in a way, though, because this guy I used to work with wanted to date me, except he was dumb as a post and after a while I couldn't take it anymore.

    You could just make it clear to him that you don't want anything serious right away. That way, if he turns out to not be right for you after a few dates, it'll be somewhat easier to go back to being friends.

    Good luck!
