    You can tell a man's wits by the way he

    communicates with you. I admire men who can do what they say. 👍

    Religion Doesn'T Make You A Good Person

    I met the most epic homeless man, who gave me the greatest wisdom ever. He taught me the difference between a religious person, and a GOOD person. This was at a homeless shelter I was volunteering in, where I saw him reading a book with a complicated title. He told me a story...

    Although I don't understand people

    who treat their thoughts as "their territory" that they ought to defend. Oftentimes people would get it personal, their pupils would get diluted, their heart starts beating faster and they are ready to attack. I think it's hilarious. Are you emotionally attached to your belief...

    A man that can make me laugh

    and engage me in intelligent conversation will hold my interest. The same holds true for friends of either gender. I need people of intelligence to challenge me, make me delve deeper into what I know or think I know. I am so in awe of quick witted individuals, hoping that if I...

    Intelligence Makes A Guy Look Good

    I am not going to deny that 'Dark, Tall, Handsome with Six-pack' always blows me away. Yet, what does really matter to keep me interested is intelligence. Some guys have got all that beautiful appearance but when they speak...there's no dream, no ambition, no aim in their life...

    Wedding receptions are fun,

    right?! They should not be like a funeral without a casket. I do my best to be sure that each of my friends and relatives has a fun reception. My dear sister was a few months pregnant when she got married. Her intended kept teasing her that she would not fit into her wedding...

    I've stopped watching tv.

    My outlook on the world has brightened exponentially. There is so much depth to books that tv leaves out to reach an audience and make money. Here's to the folks who need more than good looking people and a large budget to be entertained.

    I do admire wit and intelligence,

    but I can't say being that way ever got me the things I want most in life, which is a great woman and a family. I can't speak for the rest of America, but from my observations and experience that attractive women in my area are not impressed by guys with wit and intelligence...

    I admire these traits

    so much, I forget to balance them with kindness and compassion. And yet, if you add wit and intelligence with kindness and compassion, the most extraordinary things happen.

    My cousin was married just weeks

    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...

    An intellectual? Yes.

    And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. "Can they be brought together?" This is a practical question. We must get down to it. "I despise intelligence" really means...

    Not only do I admire wit

    and intelligence, I really don't much like talking to people who don't possess these traits. I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to be witty.

    I just really dig inelligent people.

    The type that are silent, that eye everything without daring to touch, with a silent confidence, as if they just knew so much better than to get excited by everything. They're kind of mysterious, and that's pretty hot. Does anybody share the same opinion?
