New research has confirmed the commonly held notion that the smarter a woman is, the less likely it is a man will fancy her. Men are actively turned-off by cleverness, and the only exception to this is if the woman is highly attractive, a study by the Warsaw School of Economics found. Afterwards the volunteers were asked to rate each other based on intelligence and attractiveness. After analysing the results, researchers found that women were impressed by men who were either good-looking or intelligent. A woman of good intelligence helped distinguish her from her counterparts, but the cleverer a woman was they found she had to be equally beautiful to be worth pursuing. The study, in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, found that women do not exclude men who are deemed to be less good looking. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
Single Guys Are Really Going for It Right Now
Men are dogs. Settling for a deadbeat loser is like settling for a job you hate.

9 Reasons Dumb Guys Make The Best Husbands (Really!)
Call it The Social Network effect, but the revolution is over; the nerds have won. Why are dumb guys the best in bed? But has that sexual enlightenment come at a cost? By gaining marketable partners, are we losing quality of sex? Science disagrees. While anecdotal evidence can make anyone an armchair psychologist, multiple studies over the years all tend to point to a similar conclusion.
INTELLIGENT women should consider marrying less clever men if they want to start a family, according to researchers.
In my back-and-forth with Nicole Lapin , we rediscovered a widely reported fact: women apparently value higher IQs in men more than men do in women. That is to say, men seem to be more willing to date and marry those to the left of them on the intelligence curve than women are. As a result, some highly intelligent women find themselves left out in the cold because some of the men they would like to date and marry are off gallivanting with a less intelligent woman.
As it turns out, intelligence in men is correlated with valuing sexual exclusivity. More intelligent American boys are more likely to grow up to value sexual exclusivity in early adulthood than less intelligent boys. So the unwillingness of women to date less intelligent men is rational if they are seeking a mate who values monogamy and sexual exclusivity. But if intelligence and sexual exclusivity go hand in hand, why are men willing to date less intelligent women? Well, it turns out Santoshi’s study proved something very interesting: for women, there is no statistically significant correlation between intelligence and valuing monogamy.
Smarter women are no more likely to value sexual exclusivity than less intelligent women. Or, to flip it around, less intelligent women do not place a lower value on monogamy than more intelligent women.
Ask E. Jean: Should I Hold Out for Someone With More Brains?
Eventually, when you score some time with them, you get nervous and flustered — unsure how to act or even speak. Guys who are into you may stutter on their words, look a bit tense — even blush several times mid-conversation. Do you really want to date the guy who is utterly brilliant and stone-cold confident every time? If a guy is too busy talking about himself to get to know you — it can be a major turn off.
Much like the guy who stutters and sweats, a guy who is nervous may start to ramble on and on about things that are…random. A guy who is extremely nervous may just keep talking to keep the conversation going — because, you know what they say about good conversations on dates.
Men Fail with Women” the author claims there are 10 reasons that smart guys have more trouble with dating than “regular” or “dumb” guys do.
Dear E. Jean: I’ve met the man of my dreams. He’s incredibly gorgeous, and we have amazing, mind-blowing sex nightly—and usually daily as well. He’s kind, morally upstanding, open-minded, and accepting, without a cynical or jaded bone in his body. He’s a hard worker, generous he paid my rent when I was in a car wreck and couldn’t work , and is always there for my friends and family.
On top of everything, he’s funny and fun to be with, and I have zero doubt he’ll be nothing short of an amazing husband and father. However, there’s one problem: He’s dumb. He can hold a fairly intelligent conversation and reads good books, though how much he understands is up for debate. My last boyfriend was supersmart, and I found him intellectually stimulating, yet he was a raging asshole with a huge ego and a penchant for screwing anything that moved particularly year-old women, even though he’s 35!
While my new boyfriend challenges me to be a better person, he doesn’t challenge me intellectually the way my ex did. Should I hold out for someone with more brains? Dense, Dear Moron: Wait.
