    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.
    "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."

    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.

    You're way off base.
    -Men get trophy wifes with their power not their intelligence. Suppose an intelligent guy was to go for the trophy wife though. How is this different from what I'm describing in my initial post? They're giving up searching for love, so lust will have to do.
    -Women might be socialized to go for those white knights in shining armor, but that is never what attracts them.
    -Not enough hot women to go around? You need to learn guy sexuality. Given enough motivation, just about anything will start looking hot. The fashion & thin crap that goes around in the media is a figment of women's imagination. Men don't think like that.
    -I'm not attracted to intelligence. I question the authenticity of most who claim sapiosexuality. I just like conversing with quick-witted, thoughtful beings.

    No doubt you are right. I am, after all, only a woman. What do I know about what women want?

    note, ekatherine, that all possessing uterii in this thread seem to be ignored unless it's to be disagreed with

    'NOHHH I JUST WANT TO NOT WADE THROUGH PLEBIANS AND HAVE A HOT SMART WOMAN BUT I AM SURROUNDED BY PLEBES'

    'dudebro. not attractive.'

    'AGGGHHHH WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND'

    man says: 'brosef you're right, women only want money'

    'I KNO RITE!'
