I think men are intimidated by women who do not "need" them. But many women are more than able to function without them.I think some guys tend to look for weaknesses in women, and intelligence / knowledge, is not a weakness.i agree that intelligence intimidates men a lot, so does knowledge. i mean, as a woman, why would it bother me there are men i intimidate, isn't that a clear sign that this is a man that could not handle me and i know it? It's all relative to who we are as individuals and how we relate with each other. If one finds they have a consistent problem relating with people, perhaps they need to sit down and do some self-refection.By now, I have gotten a decent sense of what those challenges are and how they are specific to them as smart, successful women.Picture this: It was one of those early fall Boston days a few years ago when you thought anything was possible.Is it possible that the solution to these challenges was not to try to fix each individual symptom, but to approach the world of dating with a completely new mindset -- a perspective in which these problems wouldn't even arise?
I find educated women from all areas attractive, but more so those who are educated in areas I am also educated in myself. I'd be inclined to ask a woman astronomer, astrophysicist, or cosmologist out for a date rather quickly, if I met one. Women ask what I do and, after explaining, give me the "Deer in the headlights" routine.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Eh, Life_of_Leisure, you make a valid point aboout why get all haughty about something (which I think actually was Medena's point). The only thing is, she was raised that it wasn't proper for a lady to show those side ..(intelligence, intellect philosophic) . How did I noticed .I had a friends get together one night at home .were all talking about everything and anything.. She replied that women even tho they have a great intellect , intelligence that they shouldn't speak their mind ...case of not agreeing with the one she's with. Now having an intelligent and intellectual woman in my life matter lots especially if she wishes and wants to freely speak her mind say how she feels..
