Maybe neither. Probably worst is being rejected by a girl who lacks neither of these qualities, I imagine.
You kind of prep yourself for failure if you go after a beautiful, intelligent, successful woman. It's like, "Ah, I gave it a shot."
Often young guys are intimidated by those girls they develop a crush on, who might often be more like "next-door-neighbor" types if they're still doing that whole silly crushing thing.
That said, guys don't seem generally attracted to smart, successful girls unless they're fairly good-looking. That's not to say they don't *want* a smart, successful girl, but simply that it's not the quality that *attracts* them so much as qualities like looks and charisma.12
