I prefer very intelligent women. I would be proud of my partner's accomplishments.

Intelligence doesn't intimidate guys, girls who act like assholes because they can read does.
Smart girls are attractive! I dont think I have ever dated a girl who wasn't intelgent. I mean the last question I posted was about who finds intelligence attractive. Turns out lots of people.
With your example/ question. Hmmm i have found myself in similar situations in the past.
Let's look at it from the guy your dateings perspective. He is either in school /collage/ uni or out in the real world. If he is also in school he may not have recived as good a grades as you did at 18-24 grades are a bfd so ya he you be pissed if your bouncy about your A if he nursing a D (You may have inadvertently been conceited from his perspective). That's not intimidation its just envy.
The other situation is simpler. It goes without saying that you may intimidate someone who left school when your still there. But that's also mostly envy.
My advice would be to take more thought over the feeling of who your talking to. Its easy to patronize or overshoot. I want you to be yourself and be happy being yourself becasue people are attracted to confidence. however, sometimes the smartest thing to do is not let people know how smart you realy are.
Smart & sexy is a good combo. As long as smart doesn't go to smart-ass or wise-ass. I mean by that if she's smart, like really well educated, than that is perfectly fine. But when she starts to think she's better than I am, or starting to think that things need to change to however she wants, being bitchy, than yes that is a turn-off.
I don't get this perception that men don't like smart women, the truth is that men don't quite like bitchy women who think they are smart.
But any smart woman should understand that the difference between her and that type of girl is that she's actually smart and this retard thinks she is.
I dont get turned on by anyone but... I find the less smart ones cute but, the smart ones are usually looking pretty! I like the cute ones better though... they got the great personality and prettyness is just looks. (Unless prettiness can be their personality too...)
On the contrary, smart girls are a major turn on! 😍
I recently approached a tall girl and told her the reason I approached her was her height. She replied "that's not quite a good thing as being attracted to looks shows you are superficial". I was like "Wow!". I love a girl who I can actually have something to talk to! 😜
I agree, I like intelligent. The problem becomes when they think they are and aren’t or are easily challenged and they take it personally. So what happens is even though you know she is full of crap you have to keep your mouth shut or risk drama.
Intellectuals tend to intimidate me. Not because I'm insecure, but because they often have a chip on their shoulder. I admire intelligence, but some people turn into intellectual bullies. To me that's no different than someone using their physical strength to bully and feel powerful.
not intimidated more like a tad jealous or will think that she might look for someone better someone smart like her so not neccessarily a turn off but not a turn on either if she dosent care about smarts and just goes for personality then its fine but if i feel that she wouldn't see me as good enough then id be irritated and not bother
I hate dumb girls, or more specifically, girls who act dumb. Somebody who wasn't as intelligent as me wouldn't bother me, nor would somebody more intelligent. I don't think I've ever dated anyone more intelligent. Lmao, not that I'm Einstein, I just seem to pick childish people.
As a mechanic, I like a woman who has knowledge about things I don't so I can learn from her, as long as she doesn't know more than me about mechanics. Just as a personal preference in a relationship. (Fyi ladies, guys like it when you have a trade skill better than having book smarts)
My partners intimidated constantly.. he drives trucks.. i have a lot of qualifications.. he would just put me down
It isn't either option in the poll. They're more attractive. I don't want a bimbo, I want someone who can hold an intelligent conversation with me.
Guys love smart girls, unless she is in their same team at work... then either it's all "same team hi-fives" or "I hate you with all my heart, arrogant b-ch"
Guys who are intimidated by strong, smart women are weak themselves and looking for someone inferior to them to prop them up.
Smart girls definitely turn me on (if they are hpmosexual, that is)
I think most guys can handle this :)
They turn me on even more.
Smart people are coolest people
For me it’s completely fine if they were smarter
