Let’s face it, intelligence is the hottest new criteria when it comes to dating. More and more people are gauging their partners based on their conversation skills, interest depth and intellectual achievements.It’s not difficult to find your own Mark Zuckerberg, but do you know what you’re really signing up for when you’re dating someone smarter than you? Is it their ability to analyze problems and solve them efficiently? No one can judge a person’s intelligence through these things alone.By the time I reached my early 20s, I kicked the boys to the curb (no disrespect gents, but I'm just a big ol' lezzie creature).But let me tell you, sweet kittens: Gender aside, I've found in my vast searches that I much prefer to date up.Reflecting back to the age of innocence, I was once a little girl full of dreams, who once dreamt of meeting her “Prince Charming”.Influenced by the likes of Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, even Cher from “Clueless”, I grew up placing the “Prince Charming” template onto every boy or man I have met. The out of nowhere, I can sense his interest isn't there anymore. Exchanged a few witty text messages, had a couple of stimulating conversations.
The actress best known for her recurring role in “Parks and Recreation” already has a few more of those in the bag, including the upcoming “Ingrid Goes West,” which opens in August.Hence, my blog: The "Highs" and "Lows" of Dating The older I get, the more I realize that dating becomes more and more of a sport, and the idea of love slowly, yet surely, drifts away into nonexistence.Ironically, the more and more I want to love, the more and even more I am dragged into believing that maybe “love” is just not for me.Growing up with a person can tell you a lot about their intelligence.High grades, published papers and practical application achievements can also show you the depth of a person’s intelligence.
