There’s more to a partner than sex organs that go well together, and smart people are all too aware of the fact. They often analyze the crap out of their dates. They wonder about their future, the best way to cultivate romance, and are obsessed with finding the right person. This isn’t exactly a bad thing.
And there’s no shame in that either. Smart people are so dead set on finding the right partner that they’ll abstain all together if necessary.
This isn’t exactly a cynical thing. They just know the brutal truth is that most relationships won’t work out. As a result, they sometimes take things a little too slow and have trouble committing. But the right partner will understand that.
It’s not just that smart people are intimidating to dumb-dumbs, but to other intelligent people as well. They might be uncomfortable with the fact that you excel in areas of life they don’t. You may also experience that concern, leaving you a little uncomfortable.
The sharper people in this world are often keenly aware of the danger in any given situation, and that includes dating. They play it cool, cautious, and tend to put up barriers to protect themselves.
