Updated on 4 March, at 3: A highly intelligent boy is no less than a paradox. He is different from an average guy who probably knows a hundred things about pleasing women. Listed below are the top 10 things you should remember when dating a highly intelligent boy:. However, an intelligent boy can be somewhat over-competitive.
Clues cure cluelessness, so I provided some clues for the smart boys. To all you who work at the likes of Google, Amazon, Microsoft, D. Shaw, McKinsey -- all the geeks, nerds, grad students, techies, hackers, engineers and gadgeteers.
It goes out to all the year old virgins, the still-unmarried year olds, and the already-divorced year olds who don't know what hit them.
If there were a dating bible for the smart man , these would be its commandments:. Don't just wait to get lucky - make stuff happen. As a teenager, I always wondered, when would it happen for me?
The man I'm dating is highly intelligent which makes me feel deeply insecure. Help/Suggestions?
When would some beautiful girl take me by the hand, look deep into my eyes, appreciate all my wonderful quirks and make out with me torridly? You create your own luck. If you like a girl, talk to her and ask her out. You don't expect to ace an exam just by getting lucky, do you?
So step up and put in some elbow grease. Which brings us to Wimpiness may be the root of all the dating woes of smart men. So quit being chicken already. Ask her out again. Set up the whole date: Don't be afraid to ask for what you want or to get righteously indignant when warranted. Worry less about offending people, more about having fun. Be comfortable in your own skin. You're a science geek? You love computers, baseball cards, classical music, anime? You're a horny little devil?
People only love us for who you are, not who we pretend to be. I know it's fashionable amidst the smart set to be dissatisfied with yourself and to keep striving for more, bigger, best. However, women will tell you that there's nothing more attractive in a man than self-acceptance which is not the same as complacency.
So start where you are, and keep on growing. When you accept yourself, the world accepts you. Accept the nonlinearity of women and romance.Smart Guy S03E10 A Date with Destiny

No need to study up, either. You may get bored with too much of it, and that's OK to tell him eventually, and gently. UsernameNumber Send a private message. Coming from someone who considers themselves an intellectual: I very much prefer women with a very different focus. Not only is there nothing wrong with that gap, but it projects a very good point.
People don't just want to be with people who are similar to them. People want to be with people that they feel fills a void in their life.
Some people want intellectual companionship, but others don't. And then comes ego at play. He is intelligent, remember? If you both are in the same profession, he might have a tendency to prove himself superior to you. You need to carefully watch out for snobbery but at the same time, avoid provocative discussions, especially controversial topics related to the field of knowledge or profession you two belong to. Such a behavior is not very common but yes, it can be abrupt.
Intelligent people are not perfect at everything. Excuse him and change the subject. He needs your help — help him, and help yourself.
