Intellectually Challenged

12 Mar

I firmly believe that smart girls need smart boys, but smart boys don’t need smart girls.

I have a genius friend though who argued the point.

“But B,” I protested. “ A guy who’s not smart wouldn’t get half the things you say, and you love to argue a point, take any side, but you thoroughly enjoy the mental challenge of making a point, supporting it, and winning. A stupid guy, or even average guy, could not follow and be able to match your wits.”

She laughed lightly.

“I know, so then I always get to win.”

It was light conversation, and funny comment in context, but I think what she said is actually one of the reasons why men don’t need smart women.

(Ye, men are wimps when it comes to losing, no matter how gracefully they do it)

    Is intelligence only good for debates? My desire for a smart fellow would be in his perception of the world, how he behaves, knowledge of parking rules. I don’t chalish for a good debate from my future spouse; I would assume that someone with my intelligence would – duh – agree with me on every point.

    I disagree at a certain level of intelligence and maturity you want someone who can steer you straight if your thought process is faulty but men who are only moderately intelligent at best that need to be right all the time

    while your point is true that it is rare to find a guy who marries a girl who is more intelligent than them, most guys do not want a girl who is argumentative. although, there is a difference between debate and argument.

    the point is that guys want a girl who respects them even if they, the girl are more intelligent. I have gone out with girls who are way more intelligent and accomplished (academically) then I. It was only an issue (at least on my end) when the girl could not respect me for who I am in other areas, the same way a guy should respect a girl for her talents.

    calling it ‘intellectually challenged’ is insulting
