    You shouldn't put your energy in calling the less intelligent and lower class people out with strong words like: dumb, and what not. That's energy wasted, put it into something constructive: something intelligent, something green or something to stop low class indifference.

    And you wrote that you are from the country. I am too, and I am 27 now. I wish when I was your age I could see how the ironical and indifferent attitude towards everything I find important, wasn't helping me and that, as mentioned before, I needed real humans, not humanoids (a bit of a negative and strong word though).

    I am partially writing this too you to help myself. Hope it helps. Don't fall into ego traps of some reactions here. You are typing, you have time, be considerate, don't use strong words, watch yourself! Be humble yet realistic.
    I appreciate it. I do agree with you. If there's any difference in my posts, it's due to my fieriness.

    And to be sure, I have never 'ridden any poser.' I have had one partner -- and I'm proud of that fact. I chose carefully and wisely, because i know the potency of sex (something many men and women completely overlook).

    I know some people see it as a disadvantage, but I didn't feel like being used or using anyone, and standing on my principles and understanding, went forward in the right path for me.

    Reality? Not all "women" are silly poser-riders, and not all men are assholes who see women as commodities.

    haha that's an expression or idiom or whatever; I don't mean that girls literally mount the men who talk about global warming, just that they act as if that guy is so smart and informed.

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."

    That being said: you can't avoid dealing with people you don't like. I try my best to watch out for myself. It's understandable that you are proud, but make that come from self-confidence, not arrogance.

    It can be an annoying world when your level of thinking is just higher, but don't let that ever make you arrogant. When inevitably the moment will come when you are wrong, or your ways over a long period of time were wrong, who are you then?

    Don't let your gifts end up in this awful 'battle of the ego's' I see way to often. Put your energy in constructive things to better the world. Let your intellect flow instead of frustrate inside of you. That way from this 'five percent' or whatever you are in, you will meet many because you/we need each other.

    Your post comes off a little arrogant, but I feel for you, because I have been there.

    Try to be more extravert in whatever you do with your life is often the best advise! Don't get frustrated, because as said, people expressing their superiority aren't nice to hang around with!!
    Hopefully the top 2% that you date can spell ---because you can't. you higher than thous kill me......

    Hey wiltondeportes... I have a narrow foot and find it hard to find shoes that fit... my legs are also long and my waist too small, so it's an effort to find pants that are small enough but long enough (I gave up, now apart from gym wear, I only wear dresses and skirts). I also get looked at like I'm growing a second nose when I choose a healthy meal instead of a pizza/pasta when out with friends.

    I'm sure we'd get along with all our similar woes!

    On a serious note... this thread was just jaw-droppingly sad and funny at the same time. I don't know what else to add that hasn't been mentioned already, but how about viewing women as individuals with their own intelligence to offer, as opposed to our own judgement of what they need to be intelligent in?

Lets not forget that intelligence is subjective and multifaceted and not objective.
    This. Exactly.

    Actually, what I've found is that there are lots of intelligent men out there who attracted to highly attractive women who are not bright. Maybe she is younger enough to be a trophy date or wife. She will listen to the guy tell her his life story and his opinions without interrupting the flow with her thoughts. There are probably more men looking for such women than women looking for "manly" men.

    Women, on the other hand, are socialized to accept a mate who is less physically attractive than average, so long as he is at least minimally financially secure. However, women will often judge the financial security (or potential) of a man based on his apparent intelligence and social skills, which can go a long way toward making financial security a reality.

    There are lots of guys whose primary "datability" criteria is appearance. They expect a woman to be hot. They figure they deserve a hot woman. And the fact is that there aren't enough hot women to go around so each guy who figures he deserves one can have one of his own.

    If you are truly attracted to intelligent women, there is no shortage of intelligent women out there who are attracted to intelligent men. Such people are called "sapiosexuals". But better watch out, because they're smart as a whip.
