I Admire Wit and Intelligence

    I not only admire wit

    and intelligence, I find it highly attractive. To connect on a physical level is great, but to connect on a mental level too is far more rewarding. If you can combine the two, you are extremely lucky. What is better than an evening shared with someone that you can converse with...

    Wit, in the form of humor,

    is intelligence. It is educated and euphemized mockery.

    I admire men with balanced IQ

    and EQ. Men who won't easily get upset and most of all, men with kind and compassionate hearts. They are not so many but they're a treasure to keep. ❤️

    Well this is a short entry

    but I love when someone says something and I get it and other people are still processing...or can't process. I know, I like to feel special-er sometimes. Don't judge me !

    No, but really, I just can't handle someone

    who doesn't have intelligence. It really doesn't matter how attractive you are, if you're not intelligent I can't be attracted to you. I went on a date with a model a few years ago, and he was gorgeous– he basically looked sculpted– but he was as dumb as a rock. He told me...

    It's sad. I know people don't mean any harm

    when they have a hard time believing I'm just a 16 year old girl on here. I know how I speak and know I am great with words. It's just maybe if this generation didn't act so ignorant maybe adults would expect a little more of us: thus being respected for who we are.

    I don't want to converse with someone

    who has nothing but tartaciousness (made up word) to say. Jessica Simpson is a good example.... Easy on the eyes, but murder to the ears and mind. I want to laugh. And I want to discuss and debate and WIN! Witty is pretty... and that was lame.

    It takes nothing to be good looking

    but it takes a lot for people to have wit and intelligence. I'm not just some pretty face who only looks at what's on the outside I look for what's on the inside. It's what matters the most. Everyone ages and looks fade.

    There is nothing sexier

    To me, to say that intelligence

    and intelligent. I don't think they are interchangeable terms. I have known some very intelligent people who just seem to be so dull at stimulating conversation. To me, the most interesting people are those with a sharp wit and some depth behind that, as well.

    For years, I tried to fit in with people

    who were *not* intelligent, and whose idea of wit was fart jokes. Why? Because there were so many of them. But finally, I couldn't stand it any longer. Being quiet so people wouldn't think I was weird....nope. So when I was in my late 20s, I just stopped doing it. I didn't act...
