I have just received my Mensa certificate and I am just wondering if girls knew that their crush had that certificate would they lose interest?

Sorry everyone's bashing you - this is a legit question, but it doesn't often come across very well. When I ask if people are intimidated by (women's) intelligence, it's both because I've heard men tend to be and because I need to be able to really relate to/communicate with the person I end up with (God willing), so I am trying to figure out the problem (s). People often assume I'm stuck up because I'm asking, but it's a question of communication. (It also really annoys me that men don't apparently consider intelligence a major factor in attractiveness the way women seem to, but that's another subject.)
As for me - I went to Harvard/am at Mensa level, thank God, and a loooot of people there have Mensa-level ability. It's nothing special to me: it's cool, but it's not amazing, if that makes sense. Short answer: I am not intimidated by intelligence except in a very few instances.0

So many answers.. no one will read this, but ok:
Women like to be surprised. It's not about your IQ. It's how you present it to them. When you meet them, they should see you as a blank canvas. As you talk, you should be able to come up with different ways of thinking that they've never did, or be smart to antecipate what she's gonna say, and provide that opinion, so she can relate to it. So it's better to start off an a fool, and build up, rather than present a diploma, cause then, they'll expect that. And if you don't deliver (cause IQ doesn't measure social skills) they'll be disappointed.
What I said about the opinions, is also valid to solve daily problems. To come up with quick solutions. Even if they're basic cheats. Girls love a problem solver for everyday tasks.
As for the dipoma, hang it at your office, or your desk at home, don't actually mention it to girls.. Let them see it casually, like it's not a big deal.
Cause like others said: that's more to impress employers, not girls. At least not at first anyway.2
