    Reckon if a thicko ends up in relationship with a boffin it'd last?

    Would intelligence make a difference in a relationship for you -

    Does a person you want to date have to be clever, or is a thicko suffice, and erm do you consider yourself clever, dim or somewhere in between?

    Out of interest did the 'how can girls play a part in the bedroom' thread influence you to make this thread by any chance?

    I'd rather they be at least moderately clever as I get frustrated otherwise. Then again if they're as clever as/smarter than me I become intimidated. Can't win.

    What type of intelligence? Academic ability? Common sense? Emotional intelligence? Social intelligence?

    One girl I was talking to made the claim that heating up a man's testicles before sex will guarantee any offspring to be female. When I attempted to strike her down she made the claim that 'It works because my mum did it and I'm a girl'. I knew at that point I could never be intimate, or even have any kind of friendship with her. So yes, I don't think I could be in a relationship with an unintelligent person.

    I wish I could say I'm open-minded about this, but from experience, intelligence matters. I feel a bit pretentious saying it, but my ex and I definitely weren't on the same level in terms of academic or emotional intelligence, or even common sense. I often felt like I couldn't discuss certain things with him, or be myself around him. I think it was subconsciously one of the reasons I broke up with him. My current boyfriend and I are much better suited in this way, and it really DOES make a difference.

    I'd prefer to be in a relationship with someone of similar intelligence. I probably wouldn't mind too much if they weren't, but it might be problematic if we were too different.

    I agree, imperfections are not something that put you off. My ex was a might dumber than me, but I did care about her, and it wasn't that that was the cause for our seperation, well I don't think it was
    so yeah, good call -

    What's meow about? lol

    Being equally matched in attractiveness and intelligence are important factors with regards to the longevity of a relationship.
