We all have a checklist of desirable traits we look for in a partner and chances are “intelligence” is high up on the list for most of us, but what if smart people really turn you on? You may be a sapiosexual.

Not sure what it means? Sapiosexual is a fairly new term used to describe someone who finds intellect and the human mind to be the most attractive feature in a potential partner.https://www.goalcast.com/2018/03/04/what-is-a-sapiosexual/?fbclid=IwAR3O-Wf1m9X5OH0CqosnY-gd6GlWpNK_RofvcAGsH3apLDP91QBJnMRECNE

Merriam Webster defines ‘Sapiosexual’ as just that: “sexually attracted to highly intelligent people.”

No! I don’t care about long meaningful talks. In fact, I am attracted to those who are able to reach a point without taking my whole day. Emotional intelligence is important though. Knowing when and when not to say something is crucial. Plus listening to non verbal.

When I was young looks were important, but being able to communicate was even more important so to me this makes a lot of sense. My husband and I have been together for 30 years, but we were friends first and spent a lot of hours in some deep conversations before that 'spark' ignited.

As for me personally, I’m not so concerned about intellect per se, but to have a true partner would mean that they would ideally be my equal, regardless of where I stack up against peers. Conversation is great. So are a lot of other things. Living with someone is tricky even in the best of situations, and if we can cohabitate, share some life-stuffs, laugh, talk, kiss, go places, do nothing… and still be friends at the end of the day. Hey! that’s a pretty rare thing.

I'm so sapiosexual that if a man whose intelligence is hidden under the layers of the earth hits on me, I will feel asexual.

I’m not sure if this needs to have it’s own name, but it still explains to me quite a few things I’ve experienced in the past. And I don’t think that people who aren’t ’sapiosexuals’ wouldn’t appreciate intellect. It just isn’t the number one attraction or turn on. I found this (or parts of it) useful.

Right? I came here to speak with people that actually have intelligence. Not the kind of group that prances around"I have standards" by inventing a new word for it, for the 4th time by now I think. Didn't we call this Demisexual? What's wrong with all of you people thinking you're smart and that everyone has to BELIEVE you're smart too.
