like say if im academically smart and i dated a rugby player who not necessarily is academically I love girls that are smarter than I am, but everyone is different. And anyway, it's kind of crass to go around proclaiming to everyone who'll If you really are a genius — or at least smarter than average — you deserve to find out. a smaller payout immediately or a larger payout at a later date. Smart people can "almost feel what someone is thinking/feeling," says one. Honestly though I would reccommend talking to your girlfriend about this, Establish that when you talk to her about how you feel like she is smarter than you. better & in turn so will your girlfriend & everyone else you meet.
Why do some men run a mile from intelligent women? - Telegraph
And make no mistake, beauty is what many men seek, but some care about much more than that. The problem is that you don't get to know the other person right away, so at 1st sight looks do play a major role, but later they don't specially if you know what you want. I will give you an example: I knew a blonde that was easily the most beautiful in half the school.
Why Some People Are More Attractive From a Distance
Obviously one, as a guy, can't help but notice about her, but I would never want anything with that girl because of her personality, but I found out about that later. She was simply put selfish.
The kind of person that thinks that everybody has to do what she wants but she doesn't have to do what anybody wants. She once said she loved her bf, and 3 weeks later I heard her say she dumped that son of a you know what I seriously want traits like a sweet and nice personality in my gf, and intelligence is a great plus for me because I am smart too. Also, I want someone who likes me and shows it, it doesn't matter how pretty she is if she doesn't like me or if we are like opposite poles in personality then there is no way I go that way.
It would be a waste of time. Unforntunately, you really don't know right of the bat if the girl has those traits or not, you have to get to know her first.
So looks have some importance for the 1st time you see the person, but after you get to know them there are other things that are more important for people like me, who seek a long-term relationship.
Those who just want some random play definitely won't care about whether she is nice and sweet or not. So don't generalize, many guys do care about personality, but remember the very 1st thing you see is the looks. I think that the fact they are smart has nothing to do with it, but smart people I am not talking about relatively smart here no, SMART like straight A's smart tend to have other traits and those might be the reason.

First, I guess that most intelligent girls definitely not all, but many are also shy and not very talkative.
They probably spend a great deal of their time studying or doing school related stuff, after all that's why they got the A's duh! Not all, but many men are only comfortable when they can have the last word. These alpha types might seek to avoid partners who compete with them intellectually, looking instead for someone to bolster their ego, rather than destroy it.
How long can that illusion last? The truth always comes out in the end. My year-old mother, Dorice, gave me some advice as a young girl that I still live by: Growing up, I was never bullied or ostracised for being smart and a girl.
My father was Jewish and I thrived in a community where scholarship and academia were encouraged. My school reports were passed around to different family members and celebrated. I suppose I was lucky to be in an environment where it was easy to be confident and where you never felt like you were asking the wrong question.
However, I had little experience of socialising with boys. I remember one teenage party, my first, when I was 14, and being worried what they might make of me.
Boys are strange creatures when all you know is books. Again, my mother stepped into the breach telling me that rather than worry about how I am perceived, I should worry about what I think of them: The brains of the outfit: Human nature is such that we are only hostile, defensive or competitive towards people who threaten us. In the romantic arena as in the workplace, men lash out or avoid intelligent women if they feel undermined by them or that they threaten the natural order.
Why are guys turned-off of relatively intelligent girls?
Do the same rules apply? In my experience, no father thinks their daughter is too clever. Sexism in my own lab is no longer an issue, and I think that is largely because there is a clear generational difference. But in the wider world, I would never wittingly dumb myself down in conversations to appeal to male friends or colleagues.Are Boys Smarter Than Girls?
For those wonderful bright women out there who feel their talents may prove a problem, I have two pieces of advice: If not, you will be miserable in the long term. If a man is threatened by your intellect, ask yourself whether he is really worth cultivating a relationship with.
The most likely answer is: But I have always been happiest with women who are smarter than me. This has its drawbacks.
