Men also hate smart women. I don’t have a genius level IQ, but I am brighter than most people. And I have been single almost my entire life because men are afraid of my intellect. Seriously. They have actually told me that I am so smart that they are scared of me. Even the ones with the genius IQ. I have rarely gotten past a first date because the minute I open my mouth and try to have a conversation with my date, they start to get all squirrelly, desperately looking for a way to end the date without losing face. For my entire adult life, my only options have been to pretend to be stupid or to be single. I’ve chosen to be single because I refuse to be anyone other than who I truly am.
