Seems as if me having 2 degrees, stable job, indepence, may be a turn off to some guys? Does it make me intimidating to them? Seems as if the girls who aren't ambitious, and have not knack for striving in life, seem to get the guys. And me... well I'm the one still left out to dry... in singledom.

It is not a turnoff in fact it is a huge turn on! It is not a guarantee, of getting a guy but still a huge turnon. Some of the women who say that men are tuned off by intelligence are really just narcissists who make the relationship all about them, and then when the guy dumps them they tell literally everyone who will listen that the man was "intimidated" by her intelligence, independence, etc ., when in reality that woman was just a selfish bitch.
As for the girls who are "less ambitious" getting the guys, they typically make their career less of a focus than women like you for instance. This allows them to make other things a priority in their life, namely relationships. I am not saying you can't pursue a career and a relationship, but you need to be willing to make the relationship top priority (this is true even of men). Men who want a relationship are willing to make the relationship top priority and want a woman who is willing to do the same.2
