    I am less interesting in intelligence or academic achievement than I am in how a woman thinks. How mentally capable she is.

    I don't know, maybe on a student forum the answer is a resounding yes.

    The most beautiful girls I know aren't with their boyfriends because of their intelligence. Those guys are 6 ft 3 ripped hunks.

    Yes and no. Honestly just depends on the person.
    Personally I know a lot of good looking guys that I'm attracted but would never get with (if I had the chance) b/c 90% of them have no motivation to succeed in life which for some reason I find really off-putting??

    Intelligence is probably the most important thing to me. If you're looking for a long term partner then it is pretty crucial.

    You're trying to assert your male dominance too, which makes you even more beta
    Your post was by far the cringiest, most embarrassing thing I have ever read on TSR. It sounds like a weird fantasy of yours and I pity you a lot. But it did make me laugh for about 10 minutes, so thank you.

    I think intelligence is very attractive in a partner as it usually means you can have a decent conversation with the person I wouldn't like it if the person was constanly lording over me with how clever they were though, so if he's as arrogant as you claim I'm not sure why quite so many girls like him

    I would want a guy who has the same level of education as me who can hold an intelligent conversation. I can talk purely in science or philosophy /ethics terms because of my a levels and I would want a guy to be able to also have that conversation wth me. The last guy I liked was really clever and we would have talks on the biology aide of the lion king and how kovu probably wasn't scar's son purely based on anatomy and genes

    I know one guy in my school who is like a total braniac he got 10 A*'s at GCSE and got the best grades in our school at AS. He isn't ugly but certainly not some kind of supermodel plus he's scrawny as ****. I'd rate him around a 7 or something. Yet for some reason loads of girls seem to like him and he seems to speak to a fair amount of girls who seem to want him (granted half are underage). Before anyone says anything about his personality I seriously doubt it's that since he's a bit of a cocky ******** and cried when his girlfriend broke up with him.

    That leaves intelligence as the main factor for attraction. I think his ex claimed she was attracted to him because of the A*'s and the fact he had a big knob. Furthermore I've noticed that when I mention I'm applying to Cambridge girls suddenly seem far more interested in me than they previously were, despite it literally changing absolutely nothing about myself.

    Girls is intelligence a big turn on for you? If so why? Is it the developing gold digger in you?
    I think one of the main things you look for in a guy/partner is intelligence, mainly to see if you could have a proper and interesting conversation with them. And sometimes when quieter people are found to be clever that allows people to have an opportunity to talk to them and admire them. Intelligence alone is a very attractive trait too, think about celebrities such as Cumberbatch, Emma Watson and Stephen Fry - they all present as intellectuals which makes them seem superior and therefore being with them, or somebody intelligent, improves the reputation of the person now showing a romantic interest

    Girls are attracted to men who are passionate about something; the thing itself isn't as big a deal as your drive to be the best at it
    They're really not though? You're not going to get with a guy at a night club because he's passionate.
