I can tell you that I'm attracted to intelligent guys, but it just happens to be that I am quite intelligent myself, so I would simply not be very satisfied emotionally if I had a partner that I could not discuss ALL matters with. I like someone who can think by himself, you don't need to "babysit" him. Sorry for the hard language, but there are plenty of intelligent guys out there, and when you say intelligent, do you mean REALLY SUPER intelligent, because some women like not being able to read their partner all the time, (I like being able to), and they find them fascinating?! I think it's considered "favorable" in evolutinoary aspects, more so for women than for the men, because we look for someone who can take care of us, themselves and our offspring...just a thought. :)
Everything you named. And I want 'my lover' to understand anything I tell him and yes, that means he has to be exceptionally intelligent. So, I don't just mean good at solving mathematical problems but especially intellectually, he should have great perception.
This obviously means I have a very high standard... Sigh.
I think you shouldn't say "guys that are intelligent", but "guys that are at least as intelligent as she is".
Definitely! Witty guys more than anything. But as people have been saying, being able to hold a conversation not about COD is a blessing. Smart guys always seem to think girls won't like them, but, if anything, girls like them more. The only issue comes for some girls when the only things the two of you talk about are intellectual matters - this is why witty guys are the best. You can have an intelligent conversation that is still light-hearted.
Definitely! He doesn't have to be an absolute genius, but having a smart and interesting conversation with someone can really make a positive difference. Just talking about sports and videogames can get repetitive lol ;)
