Question Are guys actually intimidated by smart girls?

Hi... I'm just trying to see if this actually has any truth to it. I've been trying to find someone for months but to no avail. I am one of those more academically inclined people. I always hear stuff like "smart girls never find dates" or"guys are intimidated by smart girls" etc., etc. So what's your guy's opinions?

Depends on the guy. If you hover around the same intelligence levels, you'll be fine. If you are straight A's and he flunks every class, you may struggle

It totally depends on the guy and the girl. Some guys are a little
Intimidated as some girls can come across as a little standoffish and up themselves. I can't really comment on yourself as we don't know you or know how you come across in person.

I like smart girls. My gf is one of'em. And it turned out, she can easily deal with the fact, that I'm not that smart. Must have other qualities.

Yeah. Another problem might be I act more tomboyish (probably not a word but whatever) than girly girl, as I have very few female cousins and the group I hang out with is at least half guys. **Note** I know it says I'm 15, but I'll be turning 16 in 3 days (Valentine's day)

Most are only intimidated if you're overwhelmingly smart. They like a girl who's "relatable smart". Don't ever dumb yourself down for a guy though. If he can't handle your brain, he's not worth it.

I'd never do that. Actually, I don't know how to dumb myself down. I'd end up knowing some obscure and blowing my cover.

Depends on the person and how confident they are in their own abilities. People don't like to feel intellectually inferior to others or feel stupid so that can throw people off. That's not necessarily a bad thing though as it just means that the people who aren't interested for that reason aren't right for you.

Yeah. Nobody's right for me. I'm a teacher's daughter. I love learning. People think I'm weird, and they make fun of me. I've learned all through my years in school, I can't trust people right of the bat that they're being nice to me just to be a nice person. Guys and girls usually only talk to me or pretend to be nice just to get answers for the homework they don't do. I don't give it to them, though.

Things will get easier as you get older. I was never the most popular of guys and had very little luck with girls until I turned 17/18 then my luck changed. You'll meet more people and people will mature so you'll meet others with a more likeminded personality.
