Only the stupid ones. A guy who is turned off by a woman’s intellect is also easily frightened by loud noises, and has difficulty understanding the difference between the “push” and “pull” sign on a door.
Personally, the first thing I’m attracted to is a woman’s mind. Her round, perfectly shaped mind. No, seriously, I hate any school of thought that says a woman has to dumb herself down to attract a man. I love witty, intelligent women who can hold their own in a conversation. I like a woman who shares my interests, but can also teach me things I don’t know. I like someone who cares about the world around them, and questions authority and the media. I also like someone who knows that you never stop learning, that every day is a chance to learn something new (even if it’s just a new song on Guitar Hero). And I know that I’m not alone here. Not all guys want a brainless bimbo who agrees with everything they say, or says nothing at all. We like banter; we like opinions. There’s no other way to say it: smart girls are freakin’ hot
If a guy is intimidated by your mind, he isn’t worth your time. Find someone who appreciates your intellect and can match you in the cranial department. Unless you’re into dumb guys. Hey, everybody’s got their thing.
(And, hey guys– apparently intelligence boosts your chances for one-night stands. That’s a pretty good argument for hitting the books.)
