I Enjoy Intelligent Conversations

    Even In My Dreams

     I recently had to attend a conference for work.  Not only did we spend all day talking about completely boring details, but we were expected to socialize with one another in the evenings.  The people and the conversations were mind-numbingly dull.   During...

    Why Have Stupid Conversations?

    I am not good at social stuff, so i constantly rehearse conversations in my head, i am constantly running through some scenario, so that if and when it happens, i have some sort of structure to follow, and wont be caught without knowing what to say. This has served me well...

    Intelligence is attractive because when the external beauty goes away you can still have a relationship with someone.

    Talk Is Cheap

    As they say .... Talk may be cheap, but intelligent conversation is very expensive nowadays. If you don't believe me just ask a few parents who currently have children studying at University.

    Technology Shapes Society

    Everyone agrees most of our modern problems stem from societal ills. It is clear in western societies in particular we do not bond into cohesive communities. This is due in a large part to our weakening culture.  As the bonds between the members of society weaken ...

    I am looking for and enjoy intellectual

    conversations only and I will not discuss sex. I am happily married with kids and I do not need this crap. I am very well educated with multiple advanced college degrees.

    Intelligent Conversations

    I love getting wrapped up in a great smart conversation. It's been ages since I've had one. Sometimes I feel my brain is shrinking from lack of use. I can get wrapped up in an intelligent conversation for hours. I think the best intelligent conversations involve more than one...

    It Gets Old Having Intelligent Conversations With Yourself.

    It's kind of one-sided, don't you think? I can just chat it up with myself about politics, life, people, and just about anything but it gets boring. The few friends I have would rather just talk and talk, and basically say nothing. Talking about a funny show...

    I am asked often why I prefer women.

    "Do you dislike men? Do you distrust them? Did you have a bad experience?" they say. As if these are the only valid reasons! My sexual preferences are a multifaceted, rather complex thing. To put it plainly, I don't prefer women, per se. For me, it has nothing to do with men or...

    I like it when in rehearsals I might be naked

    but the guy talked with me as if it is totally normal to see me that way. It shows an intelligent honesty in the person, an acceptance of me as a person but as a mind.

    Intellectual Intercourse

    Being a good conversationalist, with substance, and a positive attitude towards life and love is someone I'd like to engage myself in talks especially after a hard day's work.

    I thrive off of the interplay between two intelligent minds. The single thing I miss most about college is the intellectual stimulation of talking with my professors about their subjects in a higher level than I can easily obtain outside of school. My friends are very intelligent...

    Of Course!

    Why would one enjoy unintelligent conversations?  Well, I guess those can be fun once in a while.  But it's definitely intelligent talks that are breathtaking... that inspire, refresh, and revolutionize life.

    You Don't Have to Be a Genius to Be Intelligent...

    Speak from the mind, listen, think a bit and then repeat process again.  Add 2 or more of the same.  Enjoy for hours.

    Inane Chit Chat

    Most conversations you have with people is mindless small-talk. Taking the conversation to a higher plane is a good way to get rid of most people.

    Can We Been Serious From Time to Time?

    When fiction is passed off

    as fact and the majority of people consume it then we are all in trouble. basically before you post something and passionately back it make sure you do your proper due diligence.

    Intelligence Is Attractive!

    Just a Random Rambling :)

    There is something very refreshing about intelligent conversations. We are so used to going about our everyday lives, just rushing around, doing our own thing without thinking of consequence. It's nice just to sit down, relax and reflect with somebody who can speak to you...
