Does intelligence turn you on?Page 9 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
Yes it does!

I think the problem with me though is, I want an intelligent man (as I believe I am pretty darn intelligent myself), but I don't want someone who expects to sit around and talk on a subject (politics, religion, abortion, astronomy, etc) for hours at a time. I know about the stuff...but I absolutely HATE getting into these long, drawn-out conversations. It's fine once in a while...but every single day?

I love intelligence but I also love common sense however they don't always go hand in hand.
If someone is intelligent they also need to tolerant and humble.

It completely depends on how the intelligence is weilded (are they doing good with it, or do they think all day and produce nothing?) That said, it's normal for a person to feel intimidated at first by someone who is better than they are at something - this is not limited to intelligence!! Athletic, makes more money, mechanically inclined, musicianship, writting, the list goes on!

I've seen happily married couples where one half had way more brains than the other - and they were totally content! Don't give up so easily unless there are more reasons...

I guess one question that comes to mind is, what defines intelligence? Academic achievement? Knowledge about the world? Valid opinions?

I agree with 13... what defines intelligence? If it's knowing alot of stuff, then it's repeating something someone else said right?

Philosophical question FTW!

[Where did all the big boob lovers go? Gees, I been on this site for almost 10 years, and today all of a sudden, its intelligent women men want. I give up. I could barely handle their boobs, just one moving part, and now OH OH....That poison gas from outer space has blanketed the earth, and any old divorced middle aged man who just wanted a quick NSA CE, with a college cheerleader (and her mome, sure) is dieing! Is there a farm or somewhere really far away from everything but not so far away its close to something else that I can go to, with the cheerleaders . I'll save them from being passed over by these brainiac fetishists and nuclear scientists that seem to have taken over POF in one day.

Frikin amazing, even to a divorced (who'd a thunked it) testosterone fueled low level borderline moronic smoker perv like me. I'm gonna go look for an "all women are confused lieing fat golddiggers" thread. There was a bunch yesterday, before all this men ar too respectful and like intelligence Hooeey.. ]

So when did intelligent equate to ugly or built like a ironing board.
ROFL MAOF I have found a lot of bueatiful and intelligent women why can't that exist in the same person. I know it looks like some trade in there jockstrap for bras sometimes but hang on old letcher its only one post rofl . Thanks for the big smile one my face though. Even a cheerleader can be smart.

Intelligence is actually a necessity for me. It gets often times confused with book learning. I'm talking about common sense and creative thinking. That's the stuff that I need to feel mentally stimulated.

I found some really nice women, very pretty, who were just dumb as a stump in email or over the phone. Could not even imagine dating someone who is not also intellectually stimulating. I don't expect genius, but want someone with some brains. Beauty fades. Intelligence is an eternal turn-on.
Hey just my opinion. LOL

I am a bit of a nerdy geek sometimes, so intelligent men definitely are a turn on to me. In fact, I am usually bored and disinterested in a man who has no interests except golf, sports, fishing, hunting, motorcycles, cars, etc. Not saying that these men are not intelligent, I just rarely have anything to talk to them about.
