My dating experience is kind of unsatisfying. I rarely meet girls I can intellectually connect to. Places where I meet people with common interests are often around 90 % guys.
Girls often do not have an opinion on / are not that concerned about things I like to discuss. They are often not able to follow a chain of arguments because they lack knowledge or ability to connect the dots. In my experience girls prefer to talk about meaningless stuff like series, celebrities, fashion, gossip... etc -that seems to be their main focus of interest. They are usually not as informed about technology, politics, economy as I am.
In my experience girls in science are different. They are not that concerned about their looks - they got other qualities and they stick out just by the fact of being a girl. They are mostly able to follow arguments, question things and have their own opinion.
I am wondering whether these girls are attracted by fashionable guys, who hit the gym every day - or if they, like me, look for an intellectually equal partner. The numbers are against my odds anyway, so they can be quite picky if they like.
Most Helpful Girl
I've met many intelligent women, but maybe I just hang out with more women than you do. Another thing to consider is that science and math aren't the only avenues for expressing intellect. Be a little open-minded. I've spoken to people majoring in literature, history, sociology, etc. who are also rather intelligent, knowledgeable people. Just because someone isn't well-versed in physical chemistry and linear algebra, it doesn't mean they're less intelligent.
In any case, I'm a girl in science and I've dated different types of guys. My current boyfriend in a nutshell - keeps in shape, is a gentlemen, very caring, outgoing, thoughtful, and quite smart. He's more into art and writing than science, but he still listens to me talk about my experiments, ideas, and I like explaining my work to him.1
