Ih wow great answer! I totally get where you are coming from.
I'm a bit of an extremist though. I work in a research-heavy field and surrounded by certain types of PhD types. For some reason, I can keep up, just in those one very specialized field, even though I feel wired like a dumb person and a misfit. But for the people I worked with in my area, including women, they all seemed so dry and "cold"... if they had a sense of humor it tended to be poker-faced and sarcastic. There's nothing "warm" about it. And while brilliant, that type of person is working towards the absolute bottom choice for me if I wanted someone with whom I can laugh and joke over dinner, or cuddle in the bedroom, or go on adventures with when we travel to various parts of the world.
Thanks! Yes, I agree to an extent. I think the type of intellectual mismatch plays a role.
Thanks for the mho
Hmmm.. intellectual elsewhere, eh? Intellectual stumulation can lead to a lot.
yes, it can lead to great discussions and ideas about the world.. not sex or romance for me at least xD
@CurlyGirl42 How is their intelligence different than yours? Just curious to see what your perspective is on this.
@ArrowheadSW well I am very logical and analytical in my thinking, and my main knowledge is in natural sciences.. some know more about emotional states and human behaviour, business minded, society minded, know about nature (plants and weather), handywork (can fix and even build an entire house).. requires different kind of minds or at least to spend a lot of time and effort getting so much knowledge on any of these fields
Same here... Logical and analytical thinking. Science oriented.
So emotional compatibility is a release?
Kinda. I don't think i can be all lovey dovey over science

Sorry, I didn't quite catch what you mean.
i mean i can't imagine that you're emotionally incompatible with someone, if you're very intellectually compatible.
Actually living this right now... Very possible. I put a higher value in intellectual compatibility but am starting to think that maybe emotinal is what really helps with the tough times.
i think neither is possible either way. cause if they're not intellectually compatible, you will never be able to relate. i think it's quite similar in effect.
