    We're just too clever to find a boyfriend! It may sound insufferably smug, but these women say their high intellect means they struggle to meet someone

    We're just too clever to find a boyfriend! It may sound insufferably smug, but these women say their high intellect means they struggle to meet someone

    • Natasha Hooper, 22, says men do not know how to deal with educated women
    • She is worried about not finding love because of a shortage of educated men
    • Becca Porter, 23, says a man factory worker turned her down for being too clever
    • She says the sense of achievement derived from learning is alien to most men
    • Andrea Gould, 41, believes her intellect has prevented her from finding love
    • ‘I get the impression they’d rather date a girl without a degree, said Andrea
    The article has too many nuggets, so read it here:
    The women too clever to find a boyfriend | Daily Mail Online

    Some points:

    • Like many arts degrees, her media and communications course is dominated by female students, and Natasha claims the few male undergraduates ‘lack the intellectual maturity to handle conversations’.
    • She prefers instead to date older men she meets through her part-time job as a nightclub promoter.
    • Yet even more mature men fail to show the requisite enthusiasm for her university projects — which include a radio documentary she recently produced on ‘the pressure that black women are under to adhere to white beauty stereotypes’.
    • One can imagine how such a topic could be a little alienating to many men, and Natasha herself admits ‘there’s only so much I can talk about my own interests without sounding patronising.’
    • She acknowledges some of her degree subjects were a bit ‘out there’ — they included gender and sexuality in Africa and reproduction in new medical technology — but adds: ‘It was hurtful that men didn’t want to talk about them.
    • ‘One date found the fact I studied from a feminist perspective offputting. Most mistakenly assume I hate men.’
    • Andrea Gould, 41, from Frinton-on-Sea, Essex, has two degrees and says her intellect has prevented her from finding love and having the family she longed for.
    • ‘But I’m running out of time to start a family and that gives me a sense of emptiness.’

    A high degree doesn't mean high intellect.

    Also a degree doesn't cover life experiences and I have to say my stem degree didn't help me learn how to repair my house, learn how to scrap metals to make money on the side, buy, repair and sell antique furniture, etc.

    A degree for me just opens a door but for men with a degree you still have to work hard, because the work isn't finished. Most women can obtain a degree and cruise on easy mode and then they have the audacity to talk down to men about their degrees, their comfy jobs, and how men are pathetic if they can't coast in life like they did.

    Also, what bothers more and more is that STEM fields are hiring more women with non related stem degrees to the STEM workforce as unqualified candidates. Meanwhile, young men with STEM degrees ask me what is the deal where they have to literally show up to the CEO's face at a professional ice breaker gathering just to have a chance for an interview for a low level entry position.

    What women with degrees fail to understand is that when you choose a degree over life experiences you need to accept you have a lot of catching up to do or you sacrifice a lot of your life for the pursuit of a degree.

    A lot of men that choose to continue into masters or doctorate programs accept this and grind hard.

    Many women on the other hand do not understand this and thus can not show empathy toward men with similar degrees. This is is because the experience in obtaining the degree is no the same between men and women.

    And for men without degrees trying to interact with the ivory tower princess with degrees turns into a nightmare scenario fast.

    Run Forest, run.

    That was great! I've known girls like that who are a bunch of snobs, are in denial of that fact, so they invent some crap like this to blame everybody but themselves for having no friends at all, much less any men who want to marry them. Plus the types of men they choose to give their time to just want sex from them in the first place, not any kind of companionship.

    These 'educated' women are usually dumb as bricks as well. Their degrees are in Art History or English, or something mundane like that, and even though they got good grades and know the subjects well, it doesn't make them the intellectuals they think it does.

    All they really do is repeat the left wing feminist and SJW crap they've been fed about 'fairness' and 'equality' when they have no clue about how Natural Law or the economy works at all.

    • She says the sense of achievement derived from learning is alien to most men
    This right here is why men dont like you, hunny. What the fuck would you know about what and how men feel about anything??

    What's 'alien' to these men is the subject content you most likely indulge in. Men face many REAL problems right here throughout their day, EVERY DAY. When you start blabbing about how bad black women have it because of 'beauty standards', it just shows these guys the disconnect you have from reality. That's when they take you for a ride on the carousel and dump you like moldy sack of potatoes. Seriously, complaining about such petty issues is a real boner-killer to most men. Women with such a "high" intellect should already be aware of this, otherwise...

    Ahh, and here it is again... that double edged sword put into your back:

    • Natasha Hooper, 22, says men do not know how to deal with educated women
    • She is worried about not finding love because of a shortage of educated men
    Women obviously dont want "uneducated" {poor} men . They have proven this. To turn it around and attempt to shame and blame men for this shows they cannot accept responsibility for their own choices. Women are, and always have been the gatekeepers, so if any of them have trouble finding a partner, they need to take a very long look into the mirror and ask themselves: "Am i okay with paying for both our dinners?"

    • ‘One date found the fact I studied from a feminist perspective offputting. Most mistakenly assume I hate men.’
    They're not mistaken, it's pretty obvious how you really feel about us lady.

    Holy shit - yet another "too smart to get a man"

    The women too clever to find a boyfriend | Daily Mail Online

    Goddamn. Too smart to get a man, and they are still wondering what they are doing wrong. The self-deception is a big problem, of course. One actually claims that what she wants out of a relationship is "scintillating conversation", and not - for instance - hard dicking.

    Some of the thickest people I've met have had degrees!

    Degree in mechanical engineering - couldn't get a wifi router working!
    Degree in architecture - couldn't change a fucking flat tyre!
    Degree in anthropology - couldn't work out why people didn't like her (cos you is always "studying" them and telling them how they are wrong un's)
    Degree in marketing - works in a call center for minimum wage supported by his parents!

    This list goes on!

    ?????

    Why?

    How did that EVER become a degree subject? There should only be degree's in useful subjects - STEM and a few others. Plus vocational degrees specific for actual jobs that mean something..

    All of the other one's - gender studies, wimminz studees, etc, etc should be banned completely as they are of no value whatsoever to anyone other than the recipient (for bragging rights). Anyone presenting themselves as having one on their C.V should be laughed at and escorted out of the interview by security personnel.

    These worthless types of degree are designed so that 'everybody' can have a go. And what's the point? A degree used to be quite exclusive. If everybody has got one.....there is no point having one!!

    Who's betting that these 'intelligently superior and intimidating women' wouldn't last 2 minutes in an environment requiring sensible logical thought?

    And, in any case, I'm not too sure that it is because she has a degree that she can't find a man. I think it might be something else. I'm not sure what though?....

    They're all either fat, ugly or fugly and they're blaming their liberal arts degree for them being single.

    It's called *transference* and women use it like a SOB to explain their state of affairs.

    Also, they say it's the MEN who won't date or mate with THEM. No, it's them with the ego-mania who call themselves equals to men yet they won't marry/date across and down like men do.
    They still want to marry across and up.

    If you're in the 1/2 of the population that is the sought after sex, you're educated and have a job, and you're not obese or a burn victim, there is only ONE REASON you are single if you don't want to be.

    (Hint: that there, in the mirror, is textbook narcissism...only accepted in society if a woman has it...)

    It doesn't matter whether you are 'intelligent' based on an academic grade - or just 'street-smart' intelligent.

    The more intelligence a man has, the lesser the chance that he will want to be with people anything remotely like these 3.

    In fact, show of hands please....if you had to make a top 5 list of requirements you would like in a female - how many would put 'intelligence' in there??

    In her head, she dreams of being with some wet lettuce, hosting sophisticated, suave dinner parties where everybody talks about the latest Yoga fad and what type of balsamic vinegar is currently in vogue.

    Stick your crappy degree up your ass love, nobody wants to deal with your crap. And you know it - but you just don't want to admit it!!

    I don't think I agree with this - that humanity should abandon art, letters, learning in general.

    This is a very American point of view, but all the scientific knowledge in the world wouldn't have given you your constitution, your declaration of independence, your bill of rights. These were all written and inspired by men of letters. They are important.

    Yes, people should study - for instance - justice. And religion. The Dialectic and the Rhetoric. Maybe even sexuality in Africa. Universities should not be tech colleges.

    What I would dearly love to see is for the academic humanities to come out swinging to protect The Enlightenment rather than being so set on dismantling it. Science is under attacks that it is not well-suited to defend itself against. The very idea of Science - that the way to know stuff about the natural world is by observing it carefully - is not as obvious as it might seem. It took us millennia of superstition, of polytheism, of gnosticism, of mysticism, of alchemy before we finally hit on the idea. Science is one of the greatest achievements of The Arts, the culmination and product of one of the great projects of human inquiry.

    I say:

    Split the curriculum into academic/research and vocational (including medicine). Move vocational streams to tech colleges. And for a real drain-cleaner of an idea: require that degrees in letters be given only to people who can speak, read, and write Latin. It will instantly disqualify all the dumbasses. Return universities to their traditional role of fostering a few geniuses and trying to cram some ideas into the heads of the children of the elites. Make it perfectly clear that a PhD in sexuality in Africa will never qualify you for any sort of job.

    The real problem, of course, is the student loan industry. Repealing the laws that enable it (especially the provision that removes bankruptcy protection) will instantly solve many, many of the problems. Repeal also the laws making it illegal to pick a job applicant with fewer qualifications over one with more (these are meant to be anti-discrimination laws). Or at least such laws should respect the vocational/academic split.

    As always, its the laws that are the crux of the problem.

    With respect, I wasn't suggesting that we got rid of all degrees. Just the stupid ones. I'm not American, I'm English - but I don't suppose the constitution and bill of rights were written by someone studying African sexuality.

    I wouldn't dream of getting rid of degrees like English, Law or the Arts....they all have a place. I didn't suggest that. I only said 'stupid degrees'. However, my own opinion is that degrees like Gender Studies (with a distinctly feminist bias) don't have any necessity or place. You can put Gender and Sexuality in Africa in with that too.

    If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. It's only my opinion.

    And I think vocational degrees should given more worth and respect too.

    Again, daydreaming - but what needs to happen here is for the rest of academai in general to rise up and declare "these people are not scholars, they are political apparatchiks, and they have no place teaching in scholastic institutions". I mean - whatever happened to the idea that Universities should, above all else, serve the cause of reason?
