I did not say all. I agree there are educated women who marry down. But they are much fewer than those who marry up. There is no need to get into "all sorts of things that go into who chooses who" for women who marry down because they are the minority. To put it another way - a man who wants to marry an educated woman would be well advised to get an education and good income himself or he will be betting on becoming a rare exception to the norm, which is not a good exercise of one's judgement.

I am not butt ugly LOL, nor do I have problems attracting men. The problem is, as others have mentioned, women tend to marry up the food chain. Not to mention the fact men like to feel like MEN. It is very hard when you have less than .5% of the population to work with. Very difficult to find love. Should I just marry without it? That is what some of you are implying. Also, I am Caucasian.

You are ruling out 99.5% of men because of your high IQ??? You can't really say you want to marry up since your career is not on high gear yet. You don't care about conventional academics, you don't care about money so.. how do you have less than .5% of the population to work with???

You are deliberately cutting your chances on love with your own philosophy. You can't really blame anyone on this but yourself.

157 IQ? Your talking .0003 Percent or something, 157 is freakishly high IQ. You probably will never meet a man in person with an IQ above that in your lifetime.

Hey genius, I'm married.

I've never taken an IQ test but I have a lot of reasons to think I'm probably 'very intelligent'. I wasn't trying to brag, just share my experiences.

The profitability of media companies is entirely dependent on advertisement, so yeah... C.R.E.A.M.

Also, S.R.E.A.M. (S for sex)

She claims to be as smart as Einstein so maybe one of her prerequisites for dating is to see how much the guy scored in an IQ test.




As a side note. I realize that in the world of the internet people make outlandish claims, but this is getting ridiculous now.
People need to take it down a notch.

I'm skeptical of the 157 score as well... I only know a few people who I know personally that I think might score that high. One guy in particular scored perfect on his SAT and ACT, went to MIT for undergrad, and is now at Stanford getting a PhD in computational and mathematical engineering. We went to high school together at what I like to call a residential nerd school (public, competitive entry math and science school) and he was so far ahead of everyone else that it was hard to believe. Our high school offered a few junior and senior-level college mathematics courses, but he exhausted them in his junior year and our teachers had to basically make up classes for him to take.

(He is married, BTW )

So she is an Einstein photographer trying to find another Einstein...
