People often mistake intelligent and witty women for arrogant ladies that have high standards and insane demands from men. But, after many disappointing experiences, some as a part of my life and some that happened to people I personally love and respect, I came to a conclusion that it is all a lie. A rude generalization, if you will.
While it is true that numerous studies have shown that intelligent women are more likely to be single, it is not their arrogance that prevents them from meeting “the ONE”.
They are one-of-a-kind, powerful and independent women who know exactly where they belong and most importantly, what they need. But, sometimes the power within their hearts is too much to handle for the egoistic nature of men.
And so, whether it’s an immature guy who can’t handle their brilliant mind or another woman who’s intimidated by her competition, these women keep struggling with a lot of obstacles to find the right person for them.
These are the reasons why it is believed that their IQ is inversely proportional to the chance of finding a suitable partner:
1. MOST MEN ARE USUALLY INTIMATED BY INTELLIGENT WOMEN
They suffer from the inferiority complex. As much as I hate to stereotype people, I can’t help but agree with the fact that the majority of men today have the need to feel superior to women. They have to be dominant. They need to be more powerful and strong in order to protect us – the women.
So, naturally, most male individuals who have to feed their egos somehow, tend to pick partners who aren’t successful, intelligent or strong as they are. And these same individuals are extremely intimidated by the voices of intelligent and strong women.
2. MOST MEN DON’T WANT THEIR PARTNER TO BE AN OBSTACLE IN THEIR CAREER
Most conservative, successful men I know tend to search for girls who aren’t very career-oriented, or in other words, a wife and maid who could take care of their home.
As we all know, an intelligent and independent lady would never allow to risk her life and compromise her career for another person. That is why they are the ones who are usually left alone.
3. INTELLIGENT AND INDEPENDENT WOMEN LOOK FOR SUPPORT IN THEIR PARTNERS
Strong and intelligent women want a partner who would be supportive of their goals and dreams. They tend to put support at the top on their priority list. Financial background or other factors are way down below.
Sadly, the men who are capable to handle these women are very rare nowadays. It takes a great deal of self-confidence, courage and a sharp mind.
4. THEY ARE CAREFUL OF WHO THEY LET INTO THEIR LIVES
Because of their past experiences, they sometimes tend to be a bit choosy. They’ve learned that life isn’t about settling with the first person who comes along. Life is all about genuine emotions. Love. Understanding. Happiness.
Someone who could be able to handle their flaws. And if they can’t find their perfect fit quickly, then so be it. They’ll wait as much as they need to.
5. THE RELATIONSHIP FAILURES FROM THE PAST MADE THEM LOSE HOPE
Other obstacles on their path are their failed relationships from the past. Bitter experiences such as a broken heart have the power to make a person afraid. Afraid of loving. Afraid of losing. Afraid to have their heart shattered once again.
So, as an alternative, these women usually dedicate their lives to their careers. Every passing day makes them more focused on their successes and goals. Unfortunately, what they achieve in their professional field, they lack in love.
6. THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND
They possess brilliant and witty minds, so you would need to find a way to think outside the box in order to impress them.
Their sense of maturity, energy and sharp minds demand a person who could complement them. Not someone who would enjoy suppressing their personality.
7. THEY PREFER TO BE INDEPENDENT
And, after a long time of taking care for their well-being, these ladies got used to their independence. And, by the way, they’re loving it.
They would never step into an abusive and harmful relationship. They have more important things to do with their lives rather than waiting for the right one to come.
