My ex-girlfriend posted this on her Facebook timeline. I will admit that her intelligence is one of the things that attracted me to her, and the fact that she's cute helped too.

Agree? Disagree? Thoughts?

In general, in my observation, it is often true.

Maybe, I have found that the kinkier you are the harder it is to find someone. I think smart women are less likely to settle for dumb guys than a smart guy is willing to settle for a dumb girl.

My thought is she is full of lots o poo poo.
Intelligence means nothing when attached to someone who is not a good human to start with.

Only if she is extremely picky. Intelligence is a desirable trait in any gender.

Intelligent about what? Can she rattle off the dictionary or use her intelligence to inflate her ego? Intelligence is important and something that is essential for me as well, BUT it has to be useful.

A person has a portrait of traits... I imagine a woman who is kind, giving, attractive and intelligent would have no problem finding love. It's how it all comes together and is portrayed.

If someone is cruel, selfish, unforgiving and mean...Intelligence couldn't make up for that.

"The right man"?

Everyone has trouble finding "the right man".

Is that just another way of saying that she's super picky?

If so, then my answer to the question is, yes.

She would probably have a harder time. Because the number of men who share her general level of intelligence AND who are kind, generous, responsible and stable would be even fewer than if she were only aiming for intelligent ones.

All the intelligent women I knew in college went for the same type of guys that all the other women did. I wish it were true that intelligent women are super picky and hold out for intelligent, refined men.

Those were just the ones you knew. Undoubtedly there were some women who didn't go for any guys, and went on to grad school or to jobs where they could look for smart, together guys.
