I prefer dating smart girls. For me it is always a huge turn off if a girl says something dumb, no matter how beautiful she is. However, society usually defines girls with high dating value as "pretty", wheres a "good" man is defined as "smart, wealthy, high social status". I definitely prefer a smart, logical thinking girl. I am not saying girls don't think; it's more about stereotypes. Sometimes I think I am looking for a man in a female body.

Well, actually you're the first guy I heard who likes smart girl. My friends, they only see the physical appearance. They asked if the girls is pretty or not, despite on how smart she is. Girls are defined by appearance because guys tend to pick girl from appearance.
and why good man defined by status and smart, because girls are more interested in romance and the chemistry, actually not all girls like wealthy and high social status. I'm more into smart guys, and I agree with you saying something dumb is a turnoff no matter how good his abs is or how handsome or how wealthy he is. :)6

Where did you get your information that men are usually defined by their status and women by their appearance? The media?
I think every person constructs their own view of what they're looking for and what they have to offer to our society.
I'll use myself as an example.
I want to be in a place where I am very stable financially. After that I want to have a family. There are many roads that can lead to reaching those couple of goals I have. Education is involved as well as hard work. A car and a home is involved as well.
I want someone who looks forward to the same goals. I value intelligence, attractiveness, independence, affection, as well as common likes.
Gold-diggers? I'm sure I'll notice them when I see them.0
