• Dumb it Down.

    Why, at 20 years old, do I still try and hide my intelligence from the guys I go out with? I am single-handedly throwing the entire female population back a couple centuries — I need all you feminists on LINS to come give me a kick in the ass.

    I’ll admit, guys do not always get what they expect from me once they get to know me a bit better. And I’m not saying that I look like some dumb bimbo by any means, I just don’t look like a girl who would have a secret passion for 19th century literature. Which I do. Is that weird? Maybe a bit.

    Anyway, what I’m really trying to say is that I guess I can’t believe at this age I still am not completely comfortable with who I am. For a while there, I truly thought I was. Then I’ll go out on dates and find I am just skimming the surface with the information I give away — a shallow representation of who I am.

    Maybe I just need to reevaluate who I am attracting?

      Uh yeah girl, take a look at who you are trying to attract! If he can’t appreciate your brains, then find someone else who will. Go for the smart ones! Think about this: if you have to skimp on the details of your intelligence and you two end up in a serious relationship, what are you going to talk about for the rest of your lives? Are you going to dumb it down forever? No way! There are men out there who can provide you with intellectually stimulating conversation…now go find him 🙂

      Yeah who cares what other people think about how dumb I am? if the person I’m with thinks I’m dumb then yeah that’s not good
