Would you ever date one?
I know a couple of my guy friends who said they wouldn't want to be in a relationship with one for a variety of different reasons such as feeling like they have to prove themselves to her, not wanting the girl to be the one "wearing the pants in the relationship", afraid of feeling inferior or not being good enough for her, etc. I was just curious as to how other guys feel about this?
As a pre-law double major and double minor in college, having completed four internships, travelled, co-chaired a conference, and published a novel, etc, I'm curious as to how I may appear to guys. I usually have guys express interest (I'm pretty extroverted and most people don't realize how intellectual I am until they really get to know me), but once we start talking-- it doesn't always-- but usually goes downhill from there, especially once I'm sick of the surface level teasing type of talk and want to discuss other things I'm passionate about...

I've found that highly intellectual women like yourself just aren't interested in me because I don't meet their standard. That's why I marked that you're not my type.
Every time I've spoken to a semi-intellectual they... I dunno, are just difficult to talk to. I suppose they are always expecting to talk about politics or whatever else their "passion" is. I think normal people are more likely to talk about the mundane things in life because, well, that's what most of life really is. These women also tend to wait for me to begin topics instead of "assisting" the conversation, I'm sure you know what I mean. It's like they expect me to win over their attention and sweep them off their feet intellectually and physically. Honestly, it just comes off as a giant pain in the ass.
You don't seem that way though, at least not in your description. I also don't know how "intellectual" your conversations become so it wouldn't be fair for me to say that you'd totally blow me out of the water. Regardless, the impression you leave is a negative one and you can thank other intellectual, even non-intellectual, women for being so picky.1
