"Well, men certainly are intimidated by smart women. But don't worry, you look good so you'll find someone."
 Do men REALLY only want women they perceive as less intelligent?

Sorry to say this, but yes.  I work w/attys & none of them want to be w/someone who's in the same field or equally as intelligent.  The single attys all want girls, not women.  I was even told that i'm not smart b/c i'm not using what i have to get want i want (material things of couse) from any older guy that will be willing to pay for me.  I even know an atty who's very wealthy & is not ashamed of paying for his girls, b/c he gets to brag to all of the married attys who wish they could put their hands on a 19yr old.  I didn't believe that men were this shallow until I started working here.  There's an endless parade of college girls who are 5'10, 100lbs who come in & out of this office.  They don't strike me as the intelligent type either (i've spoken to a couple of them)

Here's the key, though: I wouldn't touch an attorney with somebody else's tort.  (Okay, that didn't make much sense, but you know what I'm saying ;))  I've dated lawyers before, and many of my closest friends are lawyers, and I will soon be a lawyer.  Yet still I've come to the firm conclusion that most lawyers(including me) have big hairy asses. 
I'm not particularly concerned with my partner's "status" or "prestige".  And let's face it, ladies -- if we wanted 19 year olds, we wouldn't even have to pay for it!     

ummm, EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

There are plenty of very intelligent guys out there that aren't lawyers, doctors or anything else that makes big money.  Just remember not to look past a guy based on his job.  Plumbers can be intelligent too.

Plumbers over 30 want 18yr olds too.  It's not the profession, it's the age.

Seriously!  My guy and I were actually an item back in high school, and everyone thought it was nuts -- I was the uber-brain, he was a dropout who kept getting busted for selling acid at raves.  We lost touch with one another and only reconnected a few months ago...he's now a gazillionaire with his own IT Project Management consulting firm.  And what do I have to show for all my 'brains'?  Two degrees and a lot of debt!

whats funny is how women always think that these men are the exception, rather than the rule.  more guys would be like that if they only had the $$$

i don't think this is the exception at all anymore, i'm finding out this is the norm.  i didn't want to believe a friend of mine when he told me that men do everything that they do just to get laid, b/c i wanted to think that they was more to it than that.  i totally believe him now.  and that is why i'm ok w/casual relationships w/men, b/c they can't be anything more.

and we love you for that   :-*

who are you??? you're funny!!  maybe we could be "friends"...as long as you're under 23.  :D

Jolie, your guy was smart all along, he just took the scenic route to get where his is today.  That's pretty funny.

Yeah, I am NOT looking to date another atty. I like winning all the arguments. heh.

I don't care what a guy does for a living, as long as he has interests and can hold a conversation. I basically want a male wife...you know, someone to stay home with the kids and move around with me so I can pursue my glamorous career in int'l development, live all over the world, and still have someone to chill with when I get home.

When it comes down to it, I just want someone pretty to bring to parties! Is that too much to ask?!?

damnit.
