A few days ago, I had very interesting conversation with a friend of mine, who claims that she was single because she was too smart and intelligent. She made me to ask myself, “does being smart make it harder to find love?”
In the other hand, I’m not saying that if you are in love that you are stupid, I’m just saying that highly intelligent people have a harder time falling in love, and here is why:
INTELLIGENT PEOPLE ARE GUARDED
Very interesting side-effect of relying on experience when it comes to love is that intelligent people tend to be way more guarded. It is strongly hard for them to open up because that analytical brain never stops reflecting back on past situations where they opened up to someone, and unfortunately got hurt in the process. This is the reason why other people assume that, the person is too cold or distant.
INTELLIGENT PEOPLE ARE OFTEN SINGLE BY CHOICE
When it comes to relationships, highly intelligent people think very analytically. Being with the wrong person is the worst thing that could happen to them. They are very rational and prefer being alone, instead of being with someone who doesn’t deserve them. Mostly, smart people are single, because they want to be single, it’s their own decision.
INTELLIGENT PEOPLE ARE MORE ANALYTICAL WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
Intelligent people tend to have better foresight and predictions. They have the ability to analyze a situation, recall relevant past experiences, and make and educated assessment of the future possibilities. Smart people are quicker to duck out of a relationship at the first sign of trouble. Knowing the fact that, the experience is the best teacher, then, smarter people will rely on experience to guide them on the proper way. Usually, every relationship has a similar situation. What ruined one relationship, doesn’t always have to ruin another, but for people who rely heavily on their experiences, they can often walk away at the first signs of trouble.
