I am an all Honors/AP student. I have an IQ of 159 according to the WISC-IV test i took 6 years ago (iq cannot really go down). I have taken the SATs twice already, got a 1670/2400 in my 8th grade year. I just entered my sophomore year of high school. Yet i see that the girls do not care for smart guys like me but only the cool ones. Do they ever wakeuo and realize that those people will fail while ones like me will be actually successful in life? Or am I condemned to life at the bottom of the social totem pole due to my nerdism?

People are attracted to a variety of different things - looks, money, personality, beliefs, and yes, intelligence. The thing is, high school is probably the worst place to learn this. Everyone is all lost in hormones and drama, meaning the popular guys get the popular girls, and everyone else is left to the curb. It's just one of those crappy things that will never change.
My advice is this: don't sweat it at such a young age. Relationships people have at this age almost never last, and it becomes a drop in the bucket. Once you get to college (which based on you're IQ, I'm assuming you're headed for), you will be around a many more people with a huge variety of backgrounds, interests, beliefs, smarts, etc. You're a lot more likely to find a girl who is looking for someone like you. What's better, many people have gotten more mature at that point, meaning they're free from the drama of high school. Sure, you'll still have pockets of the same mentality, but it's not the hormonal cesspool that high school romance is. Right now, focus on you, doing the best you can for your education and your happiness.0

Because smart is sexy as long as you have a lot of other traits with it. If your ugly or narcissistic or rude and smart then that intelligence isn't going to help you, its a support not the foundation. Also ego is a massive turn off for more people, I mean your casting judgment on people you don't even know by claiming your going to be successful and they will not because why? That's not a good attitude to have. If they didn't do anything to you why hate them? Your not going to be successful because your smart your going to be successful if your a hard worker know when to take action and to take a chance get lucky etc. Success isn't about what is deserved how smart a person is etc. their are many factors (otherwise things would look a lot different if success was based purely on merit). That isn't to say you won't be, its just that's a bad attitude to have, those guys might have something you don't, maybe their good people maybe their funny maybe their charming you should learn from them see what makes them tick before judging them, maybe you will get an idea of how to make yourself more appealing to women or maybe you will just make a friend (or find out that you where right they where a dick). Just do your thing be genuine don't hate some one for what they have because resentment isn't attractive and just be you because the only woman worth having is one that wants you for who you are. Eventually you'll find some one (you still have a lot of time so you shouldn't be all that worried)1
