I feel like im too stupid for a partner, how can I improve myself?

Hey, If my grammar is bad I'm sorry because English isn't my first language. People have called me slow a few times in the past. I'm insecure about my intelligence and although I've been trying to improve my cognitive skills I always end up saying stupid things without thinking about it first. My insecurity also developed a phone anxiety because I know that there's an even a higher chance of either not properly hearing what the other person has said leading to misunderstanding, asking the dumbest question even though i already know the answer to, forgetting something that's been said to me in the past or missing the point of something that's painfully obvious. I have my strengths as well but I keep feeling like my gf deserves someone who isn't as slow as I am.

    I agree with 'J'. You sound far from stupid but you are insecure. Slow can be better. Thinking before speaking is not a bad thing. 

    Be more concerned about how you treat your partner: kindly, considerately etc.
