Nope all the gals I've been with have been power women so to speak, first one is a gourmet professional chef other one is a riflemen and a combat medic in the US army, both are great gals, with interesting jobs and fields, you are no different, just a different field. Besides there is more then one kind of smarts you got book smart and then you have street smarts.
Besides the plus of being with an intelligent woman assuming she is humble and not arrogant is that you can have enticing and mentally stimulating conversations you can learn about her field and what she does and she can do the same with you, you both win and both expand your library/mental capacity of knowledge.1

That is a silly question. :) Be proud of your PhD. Every man wants a woman he can be proud of. Any guy who would be intimidated by you or try to limit you in any way is not worth your time; don't sell yourself short. The right guy will adore you, your career, your intellect, ALL OF YOU. He will love you to pieces just as you are. Good luck!0
