Dangers of Dating Intelligent Women

Are You Up for the Challenge?

Each quality your partner possesses (man or woman) may come with a tricky flipside—maintenance. When it comes to intelligence in a woman, while the pros certainly outweigh the cons, there are some things you may want to be prepared for!

Harder to Please

If she’s a smart gal, she probably has high expectations of herself as well as the man in her life. She won’t want to settle for less than she feels she’s worth, so expect to be measured against certain standards she’s set.

The Great Debater

With intelligence often comes the ability to make a strong argument for one’s position. Even if she happens to be wrong, you’ll never know it by her uncanny ability to build an argument, so don’t be surprised if you lose some debates!


Witty banter probably comes easy to her, so be prepared to be on the tail end of some of that. If she’s unhappy about something you are saying or doing, her verbal response to that could wreak havoc on a delicate ego.

Ah, Correction

If she’s got a strong ego to match her intelligence, there’s a good chance that she’ll have no problems correcting you should she catch you uttering an incorrect fact or statement. While a woman less intelligent than you may think the world of any distortion or inflated stories you share, the intelligent lady will probably see right through the misinformation and challenge you.

Calling You Out

Trying to hoodwink an intelligent woman is likely to backfire big-time. However you are trying to deceive her, you probably wont get away with it. She’ll see right through you and likely make no qualms about letting you have it for underestimating her intelligence.

Mrs. Know-it-All

If she has a big ego concerning her intelligence and knowledge, she may decide to impart that to anyone and everyone. If you’re not open to learning a few things in her company, get out now because chances are she’ll be “teaching you things” on a regular basis unless you are as intelligent and as well- read as she is.

Are you dating player after player? It must be the energy you’re putting out there. If you want to change things up and start attracting men with long-term relationship potential, give Psychic Jacqueline ext. 9472 a call!

    Reed I completely agree with you. And, I feel insulted by this article. And, I am finding it tough to digest that this article is written by a woman! No wonder, women are the worst when judging another woman! This article is disgusting. A direct attack to undermine a woman’s right to hone her intelligence. Intelligent human beings whether male or female tend to be polite, compassionate and cooperative. The fact is, intelligence lends a cognitive process to register and acknowledge another world view than your own while Knowledge lends humility to accomodate. I have found intelligent, learned people, be it men or women, humble. It is the middle one with half knowledge who are arogant and bullish. I am very sorry to say that Alina, through her article, proved herself to be fixed in her thought process and showed intolerence to something she assumes to reside outside her and assumed that as her opponent. I am sorry to say that Alina proved an old folklore where Jackle could not reach to the grapes on a tree and hence signed off that exotic froot as being sour.

    The very nature of intelligence is sensitivity, and this sensitivity is love. Without this intelligence there can be no compassion.

    Compassion is as strong as death. It is like a great rock, immovable in the midst of confusion, misery and anxiety. Without this compassion no new culture or society can come into being.

    Compassion and intelligence walk together; they are not separate. Compassion acts through intelligence. It can never act through the intellect. Compassion is the essence of the wholeness of life.

    Don’t remember who wrote the above, but it’s message rings true.

    I have to agree with Reed and Jen on this one….as far as the stereotyping of intelligent women goes…..and I belong to Mensa by the way.

    If a man cannot accept me as the intelligent woman I am, oh well, then he’s not the man for me. I’m not going to dumb down just to attract a man.

    But I’ve dated all types of men, from all walks of life, and I’ve found that smart or not , most people will treat you in return exactly the way you treat them.

    Intelligence does not automatically mean know it all or mean spirited.

    the woman in my longest friendship has an off the charts IQ – never married, smart don’t make ya nice – it can make ya mean spirited because ego gets in the way.
    when a gal thinks she is smarter than a man even if she is, she needs to know how to tone done the intellect and turn up the romance. be smart enough to maintain a relationship.
    common sense and creativity imho are more attractive then intellectual schooling –
    compassion and sexy are a good mix too.
    and i think that goes for both men and women.
    and for me the most important thing is a sense of humor… not a mean snarky humor or hurtful but being able to laugh at oneself and enjoy the fun things in life.
    intellegence is not always ego driven – it takes a very evolved woman to balance her smarts and let her ego go.

    I’ve read the article twice now and both times I came away with the feeling that I was being discouraged from seeking an intelligent woman because she will be rudely shooting her mouth off at every turn and being too difficult.

    Being intelligent does not mean that one must run through social interaction like a bull in china shop. In fact I would not count a woman as intelligent unless she knew how to handle herself with some measure of grace.

    I think if I were an intelligent woman, I would be a little insulted by this article. Is it just me?

    I think this is a terrible article. The “dangers” of dating a smart woman? Are you serious? There is a difference between having intelligence and being a b—-. This article makes it seem like they are one in the same. Just because someone is smart does not mean they like to argue, challenge, or correct people. But I guess since I am speaking up, I am just proving the point.. Well, I don’t like hurting people’s feelings or making people feel silly, and I don’t have an ego. I don’t even know that I’m that smart. But this article seems to put intelligence in a woman in a bad light, and I don’t like it.

    There are those who are actually smart and those who just think they are smart!
    Women who are truely smart will go out and tackle the man they really want in their life!
    If the man is smart he will see that she has the brains and he has a great partner in his life.

    Nice article, Alina….great advice !

    Men should take it as a compliment when they have a smart, intelligent, woman by their side and not be intimidated by her.
