When we think of book smart intelligence, we also think of many of the traits that often accompany intelligence.
Intelligence and success are very attractive to most.
Rumor has it men are threatened by intelligent women. He’s not looking for a business partner, he’s looking for a lover, friend, partner, spouse.
This rumor is spread, for the most part, by intelligent women who are overlooked by men in favor of someone else who they deem to be dumber. As a matter of fact, intelligence isn’t really a huge factor in attraction. And therefore, his criteria is different for selecting someone than for instance your bosses.
Unlike with men, the skills and traits that make women successful at work actually work against them in romantic situations.
If we describe this as intelligence we are missing the point.
But drama lacks the excited anticipation, the admiration for the other that natural sexual tension has.Likewise, to say that men don’t want to date an intelligent woman is incorrect because many men do want a woman who will turn him on sexually and intellectually, that is part of passion as well.However, given society today and the way many people ignore or deny how passion and attraction work, with so many women taking the lead in both dating and relationships, intelligence in academics or career may be detrimental to a woman’s dating habits.We feel it when we are uncomfortable, uncertain, excited, full of anticipation. It is created by mystery, uncertainty, excitement and anticipation.When a woman pursues a man, not only does she rob him of his desire to pursue and chase the object of his affections, but she also destroys any natural sexual and romantic tension possible in the relationship.
