    A guy liked me for a while and then began to stop talking to me in the same manner (we are still really good friends). Had a drunken chat with him and he proclaimed the only reason he didn't ask me out was that i was "too smart" for him. I am not Einstein by any means but i do well in my exams. Does intelligent really put off some boys/people????

    It depends on how you convey it I guess. Maybe someone being awkward but smart might be a bit off putting for example, or a more extreme example being where someone smart looks down on others (which I'm not saying you do...)

    I think just be careful about getting impressions of men from boys :lol: I would love an Alex Dunphy in my life even though I'd never be able to keep up.
