Men and women can be intimidated by smart, successful, intelligent people of the opposite sex. It’s seems to be more true that men’s egos might be hurt a little if a woman knows more about a topic than he, or maybe more successful. They feel threaten by your wits and charm. Their male instincts tell them they need to be the man, the bread winner, the smarts in the relationship. So in order to save their ego they will try to dumb-you-down. Make rude comments, tell you that you have no common sense, you’re a ding-bat, or the chemicals in the bleach are soaking through your skull. Whatever means nessecary to make you feel less superior. Unfortunately, these neanderthals can not grasp that having a beautiful, successful smarter woman can significantly improve their relationship in more ways than one. By helping out the family gross income, helping make smart buying decisions, investment opportunities and more. Since their ego gets in the way, they will never value your greatness and gifts for a harmonious relationship. Be proud to be an intelligent, beautiful woman. Do not let anyone dumb-you-down for any reason. Find a man who will be just as smart as you and appreciate what you bring to the table.
