Does it bother you if a guy is less intelligent than you. I always fear, with my lack of intelligence/low IQ, It's going to be next to impossible to find a woman willing to date me.

Everyone has a strength in one area and a weakness in another area. You can always improve your intelligence by reading books or attending college. As long as your intelligence does not impact how you communicate with the other person. In fact it is more important to convey how much you care for the other person than the amount of intelligence you have and as long as your lack of intelligence does not prevent you from getting a decent job to support your girlfriend if you have a long-term relationship with her and plan on having a family with her.
However, I have heard that it becomes more difficult to retain a long-term relationship with someone if they do not have the same amount of intelligence as the other person because once the physical emotions and hormones calm down what is left to sustain the relationship is what you know and whether you have equal intelligence with to the other person. It does not have to be in the same field but it has to be equal so both parties can continue to learn and grow from each other to reignite the physical connection and what you don't know or understand can always be learned if you allow yourself the opportunity to do so.
You may not be intelligent in one area but may have other intelligence/have skills that you can contribute to the relationship and you can always work on your shortcomings and overcome them if you put your mind to it.1
