Many Neanderthals can read. Intelligence does not make one effeminate. You should distinguish between frivolity and seriousness instead. Mental potency is a sign of vigor and health. Only stupid women are attracted to stupid men.
1. I didn't say I want someone who only can read.
2. I never said intelligence makes one effeminate, what was the point of countering something I didn't say?
3. Frivolity and/or seriousness are not part of what I value in men nor is part of what I consider a sign of intelligence.
4. There are plenty of healthy and vigorous people who are not "intelligent" or "quick" - in fact, with the amount of desk jobs it is possible to say that many of the vigorous and healthy people are not the highest intelligence of men available.
5. Since intelligence varies greatly even between the "gifted" segment of society there is no two options of "stupid" or "non stupid." Not everyone has to have someone who comes across as intelligent to them, even if they aren't "stupid"
Nancy made a good post about what people oftentimes say men should be, and what they say women should want. The point was that not every woman wants that.
Lol, Synarch is far from being brilliant, he is kinda shiny, though.
I love NT/NF conflict, especially first thing in the morning, it sharpens my teeth and feels like a jolt of espresso burning down my throat.
What makes a man...
It so doesn't help that I am currently reading a romance novel, and that women, myself included, can imagine up the greatest men who, in reality, will never exist.
Are there any confident men out there?!?
Seriously, if so, give me a ring.
A man who is masculine, brooding, intelligent, and of sturdy composition, a man who is not afraid to feel, to protect those he loves and who values a strong intelligent woman.
Where oh where are these men?!?!
Once upon a time a mentor asked me to write down all the qualities I'd like in a male partner. Then we sat down and went through the list, she questioning me about exactly what I meant. By the end of the afternoon I had decided that it would be very difficult for me to cope with """the man of my dreams!" Reality check.
