WHY DON’T I GO FOR BRAINY WOMEN?
My problem is I only want to date physically beautiful girls – which means I’m always in competition with half a dozen other guys to get their attention.
But then when I succeed in going out with such a woman I quickly lose interest because often they don’t stimulate me intellectually. But I keep doing the same thing over and over. Why can’t I just go for the brainy ones? Daniel, email
The problem is that you’re making too many assumptions. That beautiful women are less brainy is a myth. That clever women aren’t beautiful is also a myth. There are many women who are both beautiful and extremely clever. Essentially the one really has nothing to do with the other.
Also, how attractive someone is doesn’t only depend on their looks. It’s about the whole package. The fact that you want to go out only with physically beautiful women says something about yourself – perhaps you feel you need a beautiful woman on your arm to give you more self-confidence?
Do yourself a favour and change your perspective – you need to see women for who they are, as a whole, instead of just being captivated by the “wrapping”. You’ll be amazed at how much more fulfilling the relationship will be.
