    Hi. I am smart, I am hot, with the possible exception of being too old for you (26) I meet your various requirements. And I would not date you. Your attitude sucks. In your original post you complain that intelligent women who meet your exacting standards are too busy working or studying for you to meet them. This is false. When I was 22 I went to bars and had a grand old time. I also played intramural sports, had a job, did volunteer work, was part of a social club, etc. You want to meet a vibrant, intelligent, attractive woman? Get a job, join a study group, join a club, DO SOMETHING. People of either gender who complain about how hard it is to meet someone and never actually make an effort to do so are acting like idiots, regardless of how "intelligent" they are. Maybe you won't meet THE ONE right away, but the more people you meet overall, the greater likelihood you will actually meet someone compatible. If you wait for the right person to just fall into your lap, you are a fool.

    A woman who is bored when you talk about physics, isn't dumb, she just doesn't care about physics. I am perfectly capable of understanding discussions about physics, golf, video games, etc. I just have no real interest in those things. Not conversations I want to have when I am first getting to know a guy. People telling you travel and explore are doing so because being intelligent does not make someone interesting.

    Further, while I understand that the way you present yourself here is probably different from the way you present yourself in real life situations, if ANY of the arrogance and sexism from the posts you have made here comes through, smart women will pick up on that. I'm sure you've heard before that confidence is attractive while arrogance is not. Maybe you are actually a really awesome dude, but you seem like a dick here, so try not to seem like a dick in real life.

    I have no interest in debating the "logic" that leads you to believe that your dating pool is so limited. But I find it odd that someone as smart as you feel you are would not use the data you have presented as an impetus to try HARDER than someone with less stringent standards.

    The giant egos and constant posturing on this board.....wow. Not just this thread but...pretty much every single one. It's so tiresome.

    I love when people hate on any discussion of any aspect of yourself that you believe to be relatively more developed than other people.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    So many people are too quick to attack. I really dislike the pile-on mentality I see here on many threads. It's disturbing. And the name calling. And bring up past comments. Are primal people just basically pissed off and miserable all the time? I thought it was vegans that were always angry.....

    Well, when you come on and bitch that you can't find a date and have to "lower yourself" to fucking less desirables because you are in some self made upper echelon of the top 5% of smart people in the world, people probably won't be very nice. Lets not forget that intelligence is subjective and multifaceted and not objective.

    I think the OP is a smart guy and finds entertainment value in this.

    And love can be frustrating, but the more you make the problem about them versus looking at yourself, the more frustrated you are going to be. I've met a lot of smart men and women, and their biggest problem is that they aren't very interesting because they have uncommon interests and are not relatable. It's not that you are so much smarter than other people, you just have unique interests that are less common. Fine women with your interests.

    Procure some psilocybe mushrooms and eat them. Report back when this task is completed.

I've had lots of dates where a) there is physical attraction, b) we do get along and have fun, and c) they lose interest when they ask about what I do (I study physics) and overall she gets intimidated by my intelligence. I'm a friendly guy; this has nothing to do with bragging or pushing it out there. That whole meme that girls love nerds is truly a bunch of bull. And to round up the picture, I get bored talking to a lot of these girls. Not all. You don't have to be at the highest echelon to even have a conversation with me. Consider this bit about statistics though. Almost half of America is below average intelligence!
    I get where you are coming from because I have a high opinion of my own intelligence as well . I also had a previous girlfriend who didn't feel she was smart enough to fit in with me and the rest of my family (since we are all smart).

    Some points to note:
    1. You do come across as arrogant in your post, and I have to say, that is very unsexy to a potential partner

    2. Being smart is overrated. I mean sure, I value it highly and so do you, but it's not the be-all and end-all of life. There are other characteristics of people that are more important, like being compassionate and funny.

    3. Speaking of which, you know what girls DO like? People who can make them laugh. That's a worthwhile use of your big brain right there.

    "That whole meme that girls love nerds is truly a bunch of bull. "
    4. That's funny because most people I know ARE nerds, and the boy-nerds among us are mostly happily married. Being a nerd isn't a stigma unless you watch too much television aimed at teens (hint: the TV tells you lies). Being a nerd is more of a sick brag about your current/future earning potential than anything else. p.s. My defintion of 'nerd' is someone who likesd playing Dominion, Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride.

    5. I also agree with sbhikes that the subtext of your post seems to be 'why can't I get a good girlfriend'. Rephrasing that as 'why am I too intelligent for a girlfriend' might be more flattering for your ego, but it's self-deceit you are engaging in, and what's more, you are wanting the wrong thing. Having a girlfriend isn't the most important thing in the world. I actually think that having a girlfriend is really only important with respect to meeting the future person you want to grow old and die with. Not to gratify your immediate 'fuck buddy' needs or however you tastefully put it.
