Some men are turned off by smart women—even men who don't think they are. Here's the proof.
Why Some Men Are Intimidated by Smarter Women

Of course, the article isn't really about intimidation, as the headline suggests, it's about a supposed lack of attraction. These are quite a bit apart.
As for the headline however, men are also often intimidated by *men* who are smarter than them. And why? The fact that "I am outsmarted" is not a comfortable statement shows why. Just as physical strength is intimidating before a bar-fight breaks out, so is mental strength in modern environments where intelligence is often the key factor for success.

I feel like this article needs to make a better distinction between smart and successful. It switches between the two a lot, but they do not always correlate. I personally believe men find intelligent women attractive, but some can be intimidated by a woman who is more successful than they are. As they would be by a man who is more successful. The key difference it that it is hard to feel attractive when you are feeling insecure. I think this holds true for both sexes.

I think we have gotten too loose with our definition of the word hate. If you don't want to associate with those from a specific culture, it doesn't necessarily mean that you hate or fear them as the out group. It's no different than preferring one food or car over another in some cases. We are under no obligation to accept everyone with open arms or even to be curious about them. It's just a matter of personal preference sometimes.
03/20/2017 at 21:25
There is a problem here. Not everyone wants to be nice. Lots of people get a serious adrenaline kick from being mean. Just look at how much humour in our society is about bullying the different. We have to take into account actual human nature.
03/21/2017 at 04:55
Why are we all focusing on single concept - hate? One need to understand hate is the metamorphosis form of prejudice. Prejudice grows from self assumptions. Self assumption's origin can be little knowledge, ego , attitude or even rejection. So eradicating self tidbits in dislikings and understanding others perceptions under sunshine (without domination) can go a long run to reduce hatred in society.

You can still teach your children what's appropriate behavior and what's not no matter what you call the "parts"!! There is no evidence to suggest otherwise. As a parent you should do what you feel is best for your child. This is the same kind of dribble from the people who try to discourage parents from using "baby" talk. Take it with a grain of salt.

I think that some people, regardless of relationship status - whether they be CNM or monogamous (either hetero or gay), will engage in behavior that can be seen as "no respect for our relationship". I think attempts to seduce people indiscriminately is not about the nature of the arrangement (poly, CNM, hetero, etc.) but about he personalities/behavior of individual people.
03/19/2017 at 19:44
LOL that's not why. I just have no respect for people without commitment.
But hey go on telling us we are insecure and unsophisticated for having commitment through thick and thin to one person. We shall see who is alone at 80. Have fun with that.
03/20/2017 at 02:40
It's against our very human nature to be monogamous. As human beings we are not wired for that lifestyle. Look at the divorce rates, for example. From early on we're systematically trained to believe monogamous relationships are the end all be all. Which mostly comes from religious beliefs. Are all living animals monogamous?

Drinking alcohol produces a good, relaxing feeling inside you and takes your mind off things. The social aspect can't be beat. Life is hard. I gave up drinking for a hundred days once. It was the most miserable time of my life. There's only so much sex, exercise, hobbies and other sober minded related activities one can do to fill the time. There's nothing like a good beer, a good scotch or a nice glass of wine to unwind with, to share with friends or to just pass the time. Just don't overdo it.
