If you are turned on by intelligence, you’re a sapiosexual. If this describes you, and you are looking for a partner, here is a few tips that are essential.
- You reach out on a dating app or on a face-to-face 1st date and try to get past the small talk as quickly as possible. Whilst other people wade into talk about the weather, you just dive right into it. This will be the best conversations to assess their intellectual interests and whether it’s a match for you.
- Don’t worry about seeming too nerdy. Go right ahead and geek out over board games, trivia nights and other stimulating activities. It’s a vibe that will attract like-minded partners.
- And the clients I speak to say the attraction was less about having an advanced degree than about someone’s perspective or curiosity. Its entirely subjective and its no different from saying I’m attracted to brunette girls, or tall guys. Its not some sort of strict rule. Its just an indicator of what you know about yourself in terms of what tends to push our buttons in order to feel attraction.
Of course, you still will have to go on a few dates to find someone you’re attracted to, but once you do, you might find you have those core values in line with the other person.
Never apologize for what you are attracted to—–we like what we like!
