High intelligence dating sites
To put it differently: when a publication like The Gloss asks “why smart men date dumb women,” it is asking the wrong question.
Less intelligent men have less opportunities to marry, either because intelligent women are unwilling to “marry down” or because the men don’t want to “marry up.” So the real question we are addressing is: why does this discrepancy exist?
Increasingly, our society makes it difficult to even earn a decent living if your skills and experiences aren’t especially brainy.
Intelligent people have a “call option” on their relationships.
Now Nicole Lapin, my colleague here at CNBC, has tried to explain why smart women want to date smart men. The Gloss wanted to know why smart men were dating less intelligent women, while Lapin wrote about why smart women date smart men.
There’s obviously a missing category here: men on the left hand side of the intelligence bell-curve.
Of course, we’re not confined in that way—which explains why the imbalance is possible.
