Datingsite for intelligent people
So if they had challenges then, it gets about 1,000 times worse once they're tossed from the warm womb of their alma mater. For simple things, it takes someone smart to really screw it up. Take piano, violin, tennis, swimming and Tibetan throat-singing lessons. Be "well-rounded." Well, you're a talented little bugger. At the same time, there's an opportunity cost associated with achievement.
From my observations, the following dating challenges seem to be common to most smart people. So whether you went (or should have gone) to the likes of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Columbia, Cornell, Swarthmore, Amherst, Dartmouth, Brown, Oxford, Cambridge, Berkeley, Penn, Caltech, Duke, read on: 1. Time spent studying, doing homework, and practicing the violin is time not spent doing other things -- like chasing boys or girls, which turns out is fairly instrumental in making you a well-rounded human.
In fact, the smarter you are, the more clueless you will be, and the more problems you're going to have in your dating life. Smart people spent more time on achievements than on relationships when growing up. And smart families are usually achievement-oriented. The upshot of all that achievement is that you get into a top college -- congratulations!
Once upon a day I used to be pretty smart, and believe me, I had a lock on clueless. -- and then continue doing even more of what you were doing before.
But instead of an alarm clock that rattles off to-do list items or a hybrid baby monitor/conference call speaker, the 29-year-old's clutching her i Phone and swiping through a prototype of The League, her dating app that launches today.
Behind the scenes, The League works not unlike a private matchmaker—curated, careful, thoughtful—but with the ease and Gen Y-ness of an app, it attracts young 20 and 30-somethings, not 50 year old "entrepreneurs" looking for their fourth wives. On other apps and sites, while you can designate, say, that you are a 24-year-old woman who only wants to date men 25-34 years old, it doesn't matter: Your profile will still be visible to those 68-year-old men trolling for 24-year-old women, even though you've already said you are not interested in that. While they're careful to only show you matches that make sense for you, they'll also only show your profile to people you would potentially be interested in, too. And yet no one has cared to enforce such a practical policy on the digital dating world—until Bradford.Sapio, which calls itself "a dating app with depth," wants to gives users "a fast and fun way to evaluate potential matches on both brains and looks." Kristin Tynsk, one of the app's co-founders, told the Huffington Post that being sapiosexual isn't just about valuing high IQ — it's about valuing those with the level of intelligence."They’re attracted to someone based on a matching level of intelligence, interests, conversation, drive, sense of humor,” Tynski told the Huffington Post.Dating is at best another extracurricular, number six or number seven down the list, somewhere between Model UN and intramural badminton.I've been co-hosting young alumni events for name-brand schools for long enough to know that these kids come out a little lopsided (which sounds so much better than "socially awkward," don't you think? All they need is a little tune up, or a little dating textbook like The Tao of Dating for Women or The Tao of Dating for Men, to get them going -- plus a little practice.
