Have An Opinion?
Ehh probably not.. mostly because a big part of my personality involves me pushing myself to learn and do well in school and if someone isn’t trying as hard then it’s a turnoff. If they try and just aren’t getting it then that’s different. However I don’t think it’d be a complete dealbreaker as long as they are good in other areas as well. I know a lot of my friends who aren’t super smart drink and smoke a lot which isn’t something I’m comfortable doing. So there’s more than just intelligence at play.
Hell yeah. To be honest I am pretty stupid myself. I barely graduated highschool, and I can't seem to do anything right. I'd be a hypocrite if I refused to date someone who was as stupid as me. Intelligence is also subjective though. I believe some people are better at other things than others.
You sure sound very intelligent to me Ms D :)Maybe you are under rating yourself a little?
@laurieluvsit lol maybe The word intelligent is pretty subjective.
True, but it applies to people that can hold intelligent conversations... you pass with gold stars! :)
I did that... strongly not recommended! Good heart... bad brain. To solve marital issues and just life’s little problems require some common sense and a few working brain cells. When your partner doesn’t have these, it puts a strain on the relationship.
I prefer dumber women. Not like super dumb, just not particularly smart. In my experience, dumber women are a lot more fun, have lower expectations, are more easily satisfied.
No. I have tried dating women who are not a reasonable match for me in terms of intelligence and education and it has not worked very well in the past so I would probably not try it again.
No. I don't care how good someone looks: if they can't hold a conversation or have common sense? It won't work.
I'd rather die single. My current love interest is very smart and in his 5th year of medecine. He's very well read and it's something that draws me to him
I'm not usually one for typos but if you're gonna put down people you think are stupid learn to spell first
@nobbb93 Sorry but English is my third language therefore I am bound to make some spelling mistakes here and there ;) .In my native language, French, it is spelled "Médecine" so I got it mixed up ^_^.
Fair play showed me and I apologise aha
Honestly, I don't think I could do that... Most likely, no.
Do you rely on IQ tests to decide, or just meet, and like the person?Personally, I think IQ tests are biased, and I have taken several, and gotten varied results!!Just because a person's IQ, based on some Bullshit test, makes them seem 'mediocre', what if they are a REALLY AMAZING COOK, and know how to make things you love!!What if they maybe have a lower 'IQ" but they are more empathetic, and understand interpersonal relations, and they are an amazing lover?Some SUPER SMART, REALLY HIGH, IQ people, have nothing like 'common sense' and really bad, interpersonal skills!!We all have our own ways of excelling, in something! Just find that, in the one you love, and share that, together!
I know from seeing couples among my family members and friends that being dumb is a very insignificant thing in relationships. I am not really sure how it works but I definitely know that even if the person is dumb, if he or she is nice and committed and all then that's all that really matters at the end of the day. We're all more or less of dumb in some way or the other and that's fine.I personally think that both people being dumb in a relationship could be a problem, I never came across a scenario like that but, I wonder if that's rather an advantage to be on the same level or someone has to be smarter to balance things out. I think one of the two has to be significantly smarter to be able to make better decisions.
Intelligence is important. It's super sexy to me when a guy is really smart. Intelligence is a must for me and actually I've only dated guys who have master's in physics and machincal engineering. I am also put off by guys who can't spell. I don't know what it is but if we are texting and a guy mispells a super easy word like let's say "exaggerate." Almost a deal breaker because we have Google now, you can look that shit up and see if it's correct. And if he's like always misspelling super easy words that's really embarrassing for him and makes me think he's just dumb. I mean what's going to happen when I marry that guy, we have kids, and the kids are like, "Dad how to you spell smile?" And he's like, "Smele"
Mechanical* look at me talking about spelling and I misspell myself 😆 karma
@PetrovaFire92 exactly what? Confused
IQ is really a meaningless measure for love. EQ is a MUCH BETTER measure, because it covers one's ability to read another's emotions, empathize and relate to them. Lots of people know IQ idiots. People who are highly intelligent, but couldn't talk their way out of a paper bag, let alone hold up a social conversation!
Honestly, i see so much crap about guys complaining about how their wives changed after kids, physically and mentally, so all the guys fighting this, im very weary about. Its not a problem, UNTIL they have kids and they see what happens. Id like to think most guys will love their wives no matter what, and I'm sure that a lot do, but the things I hear constantly make we wonder.
Hiya. I have. to honestly say there. are good people both sides. I Hess people sometimes rush in the relationship some times. I'm a single dad with one 7 year old who's mum cheated and walked away. But I've always been strate with people. (Smart or not smart) it's about the hearts inside and the love or feelings. ypu both start to grow on.
I think half of my exes fall under this description, haha! It depends on how they behave and if their lack of common sense/intelligence bothered me constantly. You can still have a great, enjoyable personality without being very intelligent. But if I couldn't hold a conversation with them about a topic, then it might bug me or if they kept saying stupid shit all the time.
Everyone has Intelligence in some area. I'm highly intelligent most men aren't as intelligent. However, they are more intelligent in other areas than I am such as Auto Mechanics, IT Guy, Electricians, I don't know a lot in those fields and many others but I love hearing them talk about it.
Yes, I think intelligence is actually kinda overrated. I always get called smart by everybody but the actual benefits it's had on my life are very limited. If she's kind & cheerful that's enough for me cute is also a bonus :). Of course I would still like to be able to talk to her so there is a limit. But as long as she actually has interests and is open minded to learn about new things that's enough.
I don’t have much of a choice… 97.7% of people have an IQ under 130. Raven's Progressive Matrices places me at an IQ of 158. Expecting someone to keep up with me is unrealistic and would limit my options too much. I do think brains are sexy, but it has to come packaged with a laid back personality. There are a lot of type A personalities that are “gifted” (IQ of 115-130). They tend to be very competitive, high strung, and think they know everything. They start too much drama and when you crush their little brain they can’t cope. So brains are good, so long as they come packaged with a type B personality...
I’d rather date a girl with an IQ of 100 that is chill, then a high strung pyscho reasonably high IQ.
*with a reasonably...
I actually like people like that. I think they are cute and I like to help them.But for a serious relationship, not so much
My girlfriend isn't the smartest woman on the planet. She's not dumb, but she definitely has moments where you just kinda smile and think "welp... thank god you're hot." It's not like it causes any issues between us. She's a very curious person, and I love that about her, but she's not very good at drawing connections between the things that she learns.
So she’s not that bright? Lol
@Moochii Yeah, but it's not like she isn't book smart, or whatever. She might get into a situation where she'll get frustrated because something she's doing isn't working, but it won't occur to her that if something doesn't work, you should try doing something else.
I honestly don't give IQ much weight and think if someone sincerely looks at that as a legitimate marker for an individual, then they are likely depressed. If we're just talking about dating someone who lacks common cultural knowledge. The type of person who needs a sign. Then no lol. Won't date that girl. You shouldn't need a sign to know to not shit on the floor.
Yes, it would be kind of hot, I find people who are attractive with dim IQs to be very attractive. I mean for practical and eugenic purposes (smart children) I'd want to settle down and have children with a higher IQ, but there is something quite hot about dumb girls and provided they were attractive in other ways and generally nice people who weren't too annoying then I could look past a lower IQ (provided they weren't literally retarded).
I don't care about anything other than personality. All the people I've dated in the past have been not the best looking, or most intelligent, but all have amazing personalities.
If that woman where to treat me well and respect meI don't see why not although I do understand it would be a struggle but I'd be willing to give it a try
Depends on so many factors. Intelligent and smart are 2 different things and IQ doesn't accurately correlate to much as the tests, and scoring change every year and change from country to country. If the individual does their best, and is loyal and loving, then thats all a man needs.
I don't think I could. I lile to talk about all kinds of things and if I can't have a real conversation with her, a relationship with her would not be as appealing to me.
I've always been attracted to intelligent women. I would have a difficult time being in a relationship with a woman who was below average intelligence.
EQ is more important than IQ is far as I’m concerned. I don’t want to be around some guy who can’t stop acting like an ass or can’t hold a conversation with me tbh.
NopePersonally i couldnt do itI need someone i can hold an intelligent conversation with about deep subjects
I’d rather remain single forever. I work in a national park, I know what dumb looks like and it usually ends with me going on a 12 hour search and rescue.
that be tough to deal with. don't have to be real intelligent, but I appreciate street smarts and to have conversation.
Yes. I'm what is commonly known as a "fucking idiot"Who am I to judge?
It would depend on if they are ignorant and arrogant.
I would. As long as they weren't ignorant. There is a huge difference
My disability makes me have a low IQ. A lot of people think I’m dumb and slow anyways. Well In fact I’m actually pretty smart because I read a lot of history books and watch a lot of documentaries. You can’t say a person is dumb based on their IQ.
Fuck this question it's ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I'd still consider somebody being intelligent a quality but I wouldn't not go out with somebody cause I think their not.
I have a disability too an I agree with you 💯 👍 ☹️
See a lot of people don’t understand. Just because they have an low IQ doesn’t mean they aren’t smart.
@nobbb93 I agree this question is bullshit..☹️ cause people have disabilities. Things like that.
There is a difference between being knowledgeable and being intelligent. You may know a lot, but your ability to problem solve and process information will show and it will make you of low intelligence. That isn't a bad thing, you're just dumb, and it is okay to be dumb, it is kind of cute.
Exactly. A lot of people think I’m dumb but do I care no not really. I can be dumb but no one should be afraid to show it.
I'm pretty dumb myself. My IQ is around 87-90 on different tests at school. What's your IQ?
I think mine is like 75. I think.
What's your disability if you don't mind me asking?
I have a learning disability and ADD
I don't have a particular disability, so that is probably why mine isn't quite as low, I'm just generally pretty dim. I actually scored 85 on a more recent IQ test. My weakest area is reading comprehension, I scored in the 70s there.
I agree im alittle slow sometimes people think im stupid. most of time works out im smarter than them
No i wouldn't. The older i get the more i value intelligenceHuge turn on
No, I could never do that. I get bored too easily. An unintelligent person wouldn't be able to entertain me or hold my interest.
Like if been charismatic and entertaining is the pinnacle of intelligence.
@DiegoO I didn't say charismatic. But I'm entertained by deep conversations, which people can't have if they're not smart.
Well eventually it would fade away but at least give her a chance to see how smart she is. Maybe she's shy at first that doesn't mean she's dumb. How about you would you date a dummy Question Asker?
I'm shy and I don't talk about. But I like a guy who is knowledgeable. I haven't gone to school cause it cost to much money ☹️
I'm sorry but you are smart anyway
How am I smart any way? ☹️
@PetrovaFire92 You confused me 😀 I was asking the question asker a question on do you date smart or dumb guys and I automatically just assumed that you were her the way you answered me. Sorry but of Of course I don't know you I can't tell you if you're smart or not. By the way is that your real picture and what's your nationality looks like you're mixed where are you from?
I'm a African American from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I don't know. Haha.
Why are you asking if I'm mixed lol
You just look different from the normal African-American looking girl like your mixed with half Latin half black. I was just curious is all
Hmmm 🤔... that's odd my great grandfather on my mother's said he was Italian, Irish, and African American.. an probably native American... but I don't think so I would have long hair. Oh and my dad he's just African American. So I don't know.. what does a half black Latin look like?, Is that I same as Italian. ? I need to take a 23andMe DNA test to know for sure. 🤭😊
@PetrovaFire92 You look great for sure your pic caught my eyes
The Latina in you caught my eye that's what im seeimg. Either thay or the Italian part of you
But I'm a full African American girl... both my parents are black lol 🤣
Didn't you just say that you need a DNA test that you might have Italian in you? Something is going on
Do you live in the USA if so what city?
Yes I do I live in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania where are you from?
I wanna travel ☹️
@PetrovaFire92 That would be awesome you need to bring down that Italian guy that you have a crush on the both of you come to Miami Florida and I will definitely pick you guys up at the airport and chauffeur you all around Miami taking you both to all the hot spots in Miami an be at your beckon call 24 hours a day
I don't think he likes me to be honest.. he's very funny though. I got kinda sad when he ask me if I was in college.. an he asked me if I live in the area... around the pizza place weird... I know he's not 40 he has to be like 30 something. He got all weird when I asked about the Asian pizza guy though... when I wanted to know where he was. Cause he (the Asian guy ) likes me he looks like he's 22 or 19 I don't know I didn't ask. 🤷
@PetrovaFire92 🙄 You just don't get it do you? Maybe a gag expert will come by an explain it to you on what I mean here
What are you saying I don't get it?
this really depends. If I feel like I can still have a conversation with them and they make me laugh and are a good person, hell yeah! but if they're so dumb I can't even have 1 decent convo and its like babying a child then Frick no.
No. They wouldn't have to be terribly (formally) educated, but they would have to be smart.
No, common sense is necessary for us to have a good relationship.
If I liked them and cared for them i would for sure
Low IQ doesn't mean lack of common sense. Some people are socially awkward and I will. People should not be judged
Yes I’m after personality of people
No no no. I work with a lot of them anyway and having to explain things over and over gets tiring and frustrating.
I maybe stupid at certain things like mathematics or other subjects, but I know how to treat women with respect and care for one, which men or women with a low IQ can do believe it or not
Not if they can't take care of themselves. If she can at least maintain something that I like about her, I could maybe be alright with it. If she starts letting what I do like about her fall apart or disappear, well, I will have to find a way out.
No way in hell I would. I have a high IQ and am only compatible with high IQ partners.
I don't mind as long as they're a good match in other ways.
Actually agree with you.. I do hope you find your destiny.
I had a girl like that. She was the sweetest, warmest and caring person you could imagine.
These girls be like "my future husbund dose have to b smart to get me up the ayal"
no, i like having very long deep intellectual conversations, and if someone can't do that with me i would get bored.
Yes of course I love to and if I can help in any way in teaching someone new things perhaps they're not sure of is lovely idate anyone in that position 120%
No. I don't even be normal friends with dumb people
Maybe? I don’t know, I like to have deep conversations with people so maybe not.
No, I don’t think so. I want my future husband to be intelligent.
Are they honest and kind? More important than clever and potetially coniving.
How dumb are we talking? I mean is she a NASCAR fan dumb?
Nope. Never. Intelligence is very sexy. Instant turn on.
No because I'd get too bored and lose interest eventually they'd frustrate me, that's just the truth
Not super dumb but he doesn't have to have a i. q level or anything
No I would never flirt with a dumb woman because it makes me feel as if I am taking advantage of her.
smart and decent.
Never, it would never work even if I found them pretty. Dumb people are one of my pet peeves. Plus I've always been attracted to nerdier girls.
It depends how dumb but I usually don't like the company of dumb people because it's difficult to have interesting or deep conversations with them.
It depends on what it's like to interact with them.
If she was super attractive and liked to give me attention , sure , I would
