Dating for intelligent women
It’s surprising, as there are so many benefits to dating mature women.
The study was published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin and concluded that men find the prospect of dating intelligent women intimidating.
Since it’s become so popular to just sign up and browse through profiles, it might just be a tool and less of a catalyst guys are using to take advantage of meeting people.
The men ranked a woman who outscored them as a more desirable partner, with the study stating that “men formed favorable impressions and showed greater interest in women who displayed more (versus less) intelligence than themselves.” However, in the second part of the study the men were put in the same room with a female who was a “confederate” or “plant” of the team. Afterward, test “scores” were distributed, and in the final moments, the young men were asked by testers if they found the young woman attractive and would be interested in dating her?
Men may deny this and profess that they are attracted to smart women, but when you look at the dating scene, the reality tells a different story.
After all, it’s a fact that many smart, highly educated professional women struggle to get a date.
I have the patience to find the right guy, online dating is for the impatient. I’m not in a hurry to fall in love but I do like messaging back and forth and having casual conversation with a guy because there’s no pressure if we both just want to have a little fun via txt. Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
I have a few dating apps (Grindr, Jackd, Scruff, etc)…and often I find that conversation can be fast and furious at the inception, but quickly dies off when anyone mentions meeting for a drink in person.
And if you can’t meet in person, then what’s the point? Personally I find them to be a bit frustrating, as there is no real “buy in” or connection made.
