Intelligence is inversely proportional to the chances of finding a partner for her.

“She is intelligent” would mean “she is in demand” in a very direct manner. But if taking a deep insight, what looks so obvious is not actually true. Countless researches conducted by various psychologists showed that intelligent women are more likely to be single. Sometimes it’s the egoistic nature of men who are not willing to accept competition in their lives while many other times it is the women themselves, who have grown demanding and their expectations have become unreal.

Intelligent women are patient, mature and conscious enough to choose the next relationship. They prefer to wait than getting involved with the wrong guy.

So if you are wishing to fulfill all your ambitions and simultaneously getting married to a guy that you think would be suitable enough, to your disappointment the chances are quite less. The research conducted by British university revealed that IQ was inversely proportional to the chance of finding an appropriate partner in the case of women while it was directly proportional in the case of men.


There are certain reasons that we have tried to disclose before you based on the researches and opinions taken from common people.


1. Men don’t want to become the victim of inferiority complex

Owing to their dominating nature; men do not want to marry a woman who is more successful and intelligent than them. They avoid challenges and as a result, the more intelligent women are left out. They are considered to be as arrogant and problem creating partners in a relationship. These cultural and social dogmas, associated with the woman of strong personality, declare them undesirable.


2. Men do not want the girl to be an obstructing stone in their career

According to John Carney, a financial reporter, successful men gravitate towards girls who are not very career-oriented and hence can take care of their home. Since an intelligent woman would never compromise with her professional life, they are the ones to be left alone.


3. Intelligent women look for support

In a study carried out by the Minister of Universities David Willetts, it was found that women kept supportive men at the top in their priority list. Financial assistance, qualification, and other factors were secondary. But a study done on the men’s behavior showed an ironical result where the egos restricted them from being supportive of their girls. This results in lesser compatibility.


4. Failures in the past relationships devoid them of finding love again

As explained by Alex Banner of “The Huffington Post”, bitter experiences of the past relationships led them to find an alternative, in the form of work, to get busier. Every passing day makes them more focused on achieving professional success. In return, they lag behind in the race of finding a suitable match.


5. They are way too choosy

Of course, they are the leading ladies and all worthy of considering various options before settling for the final one. In spite of changing the guy according to their whims and fantasies, they look for the one that can bear all their tantrums. And of course, it takes time to find the perfect fit.


6. They are a hard nut to crack

They possess brains hence you need to think out of the box to create an everlasting impression. Their sense of maturity demands extra efforts and over the top attempts. Mere cheesy and flattering words would never be enough.


7. They prefer to be independent

They are habitual of taking care of their own stuff. They would not think twice before getting over an abusive or unhealthy relationship. They have much better and substantial things to do in life hence waiting for the right guy is not their cup of tea.

The more intelligent the woman is, the more are the chances for a guy to get attracted to her. But spending life together requires much more than attraction and infatuation.

I am a professional content writer and marketer with over 3 years of experience. When I am not writing about relationships, personality and lifestyle, you can find me swimming in a pool somewhere.


  1. I date guys who are less intelligent than me because it’s less irritating to let them think they’re right when I know full well they’re wrong. Also with intelligent men comes intelligent conversation (which can have no right or wrong) which is great occasionally in a social setting – I had a political debate with a guy in a store earlier – but when I’m at home I just want to watch family guy.
    That said it hasn’t worked out too well for me. They are generally threatened by reading!! Which I do alot. And in arguments if I get angry I innilalat them and then feel bad. Often they have literally nothing to say about anything and I find intelligent conversation elsewhere. Generally they’re good in bed though.
    Intelligent guys completely turn me off. They try to impress with the mind rather than the personality. They need to feel smarter and I really avoid allowing that when possible – they know they’re smart so why do they need to prove it? I’ll argue pink is green if it means the chance to knock some smart ass’s ego but if a guy is less intelligent than me I’ll let him think he’s smarter. Although in all honesty that’s because I can’t bare to listen to their weak argument. I’d rather talk about something they know about that I don’t. For example I learnt about lawnmower racing, old buses, I listen to life stories, dog racing. There’s more to life than intelligence and money and status. There’s more to people than their opinions and how knowledgeable they are in making their point. Also there is great wisdom in the simplest of people. Newton might of theorised gravity but that theory doesn’t change that an apple is an apple (unless you get into philosophy haha). I’m not knocking science or knowledge, I love both but I don’t find intelligent men very attractive. They’re hard work and I’ll dumb myself down for the dumb, out of politeness but I’ll be damned if I dumb myself down for a guy who can understand what I’m saying but “feels threatened” or “wants someone who’ll focus on him” which I might add apparently only a stupid woman would do so clearly he’s not worth it or “because he won’t see me as dating material” sfw We’re women we can get laid pretty much anywhere, pretty easily and pretty much whenever we want. The reality is its all about procreation anyway so all these so called smart men mixing their DNA with these dumb weak willed women are not so smart. Personally I mixed my DNA with physically strong alpha males with street sense and my children have strong characters, good social skills and slightly above average intelligence – too smart intellectually does not necessarily equal happy or good life skills. Some intellectuals can’t even make a cup of tea, not something I admire either. And these so called intelligent men choosing less intelligent wives – one word WEAK Which to be fair I’m also guilty of because I can’t be bothered with a smart piece of arse 😉
