Of course, just because increasing numbers of men and women are finding themselves single, it doesn’t mean that they wish to stay that way.

They can be endlessly fascinating and even more frustrating. And yet you still say you want a man who is smarter than you are. Sounds like a pretty exhausting relationship, doesn’t it? It does mean that you need to accept men who are not in the 98th percentile of intelligence, and recognize that there are plenty of amazing, bright, relationship-oriented men who may not be smarter than you.

They have enough information and ammunition to be impossible to argue with. That does NOT mean that you are going to find yourself with a man who has never read a newspaper, who has no interest in foreign travel, or who can’t keep up with you and your friends.

You’d make adjustments if you alienated your co-workers and wanted to feel better from 9-5 every day. And a big reason you struggle to connect with men is because you’re so bright. Like many of you, I’m a bit of an intellectual snob.

Now before you decide that you hate me, I’d like you to consider two things: First, does that description remind you of any of the men you’ve dated in the past? On the other you get a narcissistic, difficult, self-obsessed, coldly logical man who is much more concerned with ideas than feelings, and much more concerned with himself than with you.

– what other venues do you use to find dates – e.g., memberships at museums, running clubs, church functions, other matchmaking groups, etc… At one point I was using six different dating sites (mostly trying to figure out which one fit me best), and a girlfriend and I would check in with each other every week to “report” in on how our “project” was going.

but I’ve written before about how I took dating quite seriously for about 16 months (meeting my husband around month 19).

They understand the importance of balancing life and love.

They're smart enough to find dating sites that work for them.

I’ve also written before about my favorite dating books, but if anyone has any other favorites, please shout ’em out in today’s comments!
