And for the girls, how do you try to portray yourselves - do you emphasize things that make you look smart, or do you suppress them in order not to intimidate men?

I absolutely, 1000% refuse to dumb myself down to 'attract more guys'. If a guy can't appreciate smart girls, or appreciate my intelligence as being a vital and attractive part of me as a person, he isn't a guy I want. If he's intimidated by my brain, then he's insecure about his own. Everyone is intimidated by something, and no one likes to be made to feel less intelligent than another. So I understand. I've been there too. It's when the insecurity is so strong that women of above average intelligence become unattractive, that bothers me. Like when men prefer to date someone they can't relate with, because their ego is threatened by a women closer to their level.
