Most Helpful Girl
I think in every relationship you ideally want someone who you feel gets you. I think intelligent people tend to second guess themselves, they get that they don't know it all and so it's harder for them to find someone who gets them when they might not even truly get themselves.
Also i do feel like a lot of intelligent people have jobs which are more of a passion for them and they put a lot of work and time into, which just makes dating and getting out there a bit harder. If you're working a lot it's harder to find time to meet people.

I think it's because smart people are somewhat rare, so it's hard for them to find a partner that they feel would raise them up instead of bring them down. I feel this way a lot.
I also feel it's because dumb is seen as "cool". Ever since the earliest days of school, this has been true. You're "cool" if you get in trouble, if you refuse to learn, if you make a big deal out of looking like you don't care about anything. Smart people know that what they do and who they are inside counts for more than a tough-guy image. They also know they have too much to lose by acting stupid, but unfortunately, women especially seem to confuse common sense for cowardice. It's messed up.
