Men Don’t Think Smart Women Are Sexy (And I’m Living Proof)

Men love the idea of dating a smart woman, but it turns out that’s where it stops: the idea.

What they dream of doesn’t translate into reality. Men do not, in fact, love dating smart women. 

At least, if this one study is to be believed. 

In the study, published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 105 men were asked to compare 2 women as romantic partners. The first outperformed them in math, and the second did not. The men were more likely to rank the “smart” woman as the more desirable partner. 

Pretty awesome, right?

Yeah, until reality comes into play.

For the next part of the experiment, the men took an intelligence test. Then they were told that they were about to meet a woman who scored higher on the test than they did. 

How did they respond? 

“They distanced themselves more from her, tended to rate her as less attractive, and showed less desire to exchange contact information or plan a date with her.”

That’s right, it turns out the reality of a woman with a booty that just won’t quit and the brains to match it is much less appealing than making the so-called “right” choice on paper. 

I wish I could say that this is remotely surprising to me, but it isn’t.
