|Smart WomenPage 5 of 10 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)|
|Well, I'm glad to see that some men like smart women....from a woman's perspective, I know that I find smart men very attractive |
But the problem with intelligence is the smarter you are, the more different you are from other smart folks, which reduces the pool of potential matches quite significantly.

|"Getting schooled only means you had the means to do so".|
Financial means?! What about the grades you need to get into graduate school? I agree with you that you can't equate education with intelligence (although in my view they do go together for the most part) but you can assume that someone in graduate school has more going for him/her than an ability to come up with the tuition fee.
I'm not as quick as everyone else seems to be to denigrate a university education, because to me, it appears that most people stop thinking (I mean really tough, mind-bending thinking, questioning, reading and writing) when they finish their formal education, and so people with a university education have done a lot more thinking than those who haven't.

It is actually a lot easier for me to pick up smart women. According to Cosmos, the women who are most likely to have one night stands are ... women who are PhDs and MDs. haha I kid you not.
First of all, a lot of intelligent women think Cosmo isn't worth the paper it is printed on but I digress. :+)
Let's say this theory is correct (and I have heard that statistically it is but I have not done the research). Here are my theories (and they are only theories, mind you.)
1) Intelligent women may be less likely to subscribe to societal norms and/or expectations as what constitutes proper sexual behavior for women. They tend to form their own opinions regarding sexuality and do not attach the same stigma to sex as other women might.
2) They are often less likely to follow organized religion. While many may purport to be spiritual they are less likely to be religious. For example; I consider myself Christian but I have very little in common with others who practice a more Fundamental system of beliefs.
3) They tend to be better educated about birth control options so the risk of pregnancy isn’t as much of an issue.
Anyway, that’s just my two cents on the subject….

|GothyGeek, I believe the magazine containing the survey was "Cosmos" rather than "Cosmo" - Cosmos must be a much worthier publication...|
Mandrake, start doing what??

|I have known one girl that I truly felt was more intelligent than I was (not to sound****, but Ive only know a handful of girls really closely to know how smart they were). Anyway, that girl was the sexiest/greatest/most attractive girl I have ever known.|
So, by my limited experience, I think intelligent women are the sexiest/greatest/most attractive girls.

|Where do those women hang out? The answer is strikingly simple. Go to the university campus, university parties (organized by graduate students), and libraries. Or go audit a graduate level course, if you have the time. |
Why do these women have more one night stands? My theory is as follows: they are so busy with their lives; I once dated a resident who worked 80-100 hour weeks. They don't have time for dramas. Male companionship is only a small part of their lives. So if and when they are horny, they will page you over for a session. Then they won't call you for a long time afterwards. To put it simply: you are their sex toy. haha... can you take it?

students, huh... roflmao... on your comment regarding smart women using men as sex toys i do agree with that... but ... about the student thing... what if you have been done school for a while... where are men to look for you and your brain now huh?
intelligent men and women have a hard time finding dates and usually turn to dating sites like this to wade through the masses when they have time. i go to college parties from time to time, and there are absolutly no men there for me. they are either way too young, or way to lunkheaded.

|I like intellgent girls, but as on of the other guys posted before, there are different types of intellegence. I recently dated a pharmacist, she was smart and could remember all these chemical equations but clumsy and just didn't have like a knowledge of that much else (she mistook a garlic crusher for a microphone....yeah in the cutlery section of a store).|
I think most of us well educated guys have trouble finding intellegent women because we don't know where to look, pubs and bars really have a range of assorted nuts. I think that is what is great about the internet dating part, it cuts out people that aren't interested, and means if you have gotten onto the computer and typed and clicked where you need to that you atleast possess a certain amount of knowledge.

|Lately I find myself wishing I was a dumb girl -- that way I wouldn't notice the terrible grammar and spelling in the messages I get, and I might actually believe some of the hooey these guys spew at me. As it is I am an educated (and apparently interesting) woman who really wishes there were more educated and interesting/interested single guys out there!|
BTW, education can be gained through means other than university; that is what books and libraries are for!

|I think DCX10 is telling the truth about what he read. Its not that those 3 things are related at all, I think it is because women who are smarter, maybe more successful are a little bit more comfortable with who they are and probably dont need to have someone all to themselves. It might also be because they are REALLY busy, like me. lol.|

|Xavi - don't ever wish yourself to be dumb. The saying maybe that ignorance is bliss but how limiting and uninteresting - although you maybe too dumb to notice lol.|
Noticing terrible grammar and spelling isn't so bad especially if you use it as a filtering system to get to your "Mr. Right Kind Of Guy" and there are lots of educated/interesting guys out there.
Education is only gained through schools - knowledge is gained through books and libraries and you can be well educated without learning a darn thing. You can also be incredibly knowledgeable and not be well educated - there are some very successful people out there who are such.
What is intelligence any way? Seriously - you can be well educated and not be intelligent, you can be knowledgeable and not be intelligent therefore what is it anyway?
For me I always think that it is the ability to receive new information and question it, accept it, integrate it, and then finally use it. To be open and receptive and to fundamentally understand and accept that you never ever really know anything!

"Can someone be intelligent without a formal education, and how many truly stupid college graduates have you met?"
An IQ is adjusted to your level of education and scored against the expected knowledge base. Cognition, now, that's another matter.
But the problem with intelligence is the smarter you are, the more different you are from other smart folks, which reduces the pool of potential matches quite significantly."
So the smarter you are, the more likely you are to be single. We're a smart bunch of ladies, ladies! (oh, and you sluts that go for the ONSs, too)
