Love does not come easy for smart people. Here’s why.
1. We don’t consider a romantic relationship as a top priority.
To us, life is full of all kinds of possibilities and we often have great ideas to be put into practice. We tend to spend more time and efforts on our work but not just on a romantic relationship.
2. We are more brains than beauty.
While not always the case, we may tend to be more attractive on the inside than on the outside. Generally speaking, smart people have a “hidden beauty” and it takes a special person to appreciate and acknowledge it.
3. We consider our intelligence as its own reward.
Being smart gives us self-fulfillment that takes the place of a need to be fulfilled in a relationship for some people. We get our greatest fulfillment from our achievements.
4. We dig deep
This can be a difficult thing when it comes to dating. We tend to dig deep into a person’s soul to ascertain the level of interest and commitment.
5. We don’t dance around issues.
We confront problems in a relationship with the confidence that we are in the right — some people don’t like that! We are smart and we know what is right and what is wrong, and we do not mind letting you know what is wrong with the relationship.
6. It’s difficult to understand us at times.
Our mind is complicated and it’s hard to explain everything. But we do try hard to be understood.
7. We often miss subtle cues.
Our focus is on things of larger scope. Therefore, we might miss out on subtle hints of interest from other people on petty things. We don’t aim to offend, but we just can’t even notice.
