    You ever talk to a lot of people

    and feel like you didn't talk at all? Not that those people weren't important, but the conversation was lacking something more stimulating?

    I miss college. The deep conversations

    and academic challenges. I don't have that at home. In the beginning of marriage, I made the mistake of telling my husband (who played video games more than not) that I needed stimulating conversation. He's never let me forget it. However, it's still true today. I lack that...

    me too, most of my girlfriends are stuck on

    gossip and guys. I like to talk about those things sometimes too but after an hour or two we run out of things to talk about and when I try to mention a more interesting topic they just stare at their phones and give one word answers, so I have given up lol. I'm sure they think...

    I feel like it's impossible to find younger

    people who still enjoy intelligent conversations. It's like every other word is swag or yolo, and I'm just over here like "that's a dumbed down version of carpe dium that people use as an excuse to ignore obvious consequences that have the ability to hinder their future...

    I'm interested in having a conversation on

    world problems, the value of education, the downfall of capitalism, corruption in politics, and whatever else you feel like discussing so long as it encompasses more than just you and I.

    So if the words are taken at face value 'the

    walking dead' must mean that anything walking is dead but the opposite would be the still life. So it's a paradox if u walk ur dead but if ur still you will soon be walking as the dead what does one do

    I no longer have the energy

    for meaningless friendships and mindless people. I want to completely diverge into topics, someone's mind, the world. I don't care about how the weather is.

    can literally get lost

    for hours "researching". like right now for instance, i am pretty sure i have looked up every single Christopher Poindexter composition because i came across one which i felt i related to.

    I hate talking about mainstream topics.

    . Discussing ideas from an abstract perspective is the only way I can stay interested and focused.

    I think this is just

    as important -or perhaps even more so - than the other kinds of stimulus one can expect from a relationship.

    I adore stimulating conversation with

    interesting people. It must be an extension of my love of learning and wanting to research as much as possible in my lifetime. You can't get any better than first-hand experiences and a person's reasons behind their opinions. even when I don't agree with the point of view, I...

    Does anyone want to have a conversation

    that doesn't revolve around your genitals? I enjoy conversing about many subjects, some requiring deeper thought than others, such as movies, TV, books, space, science, music, relationships, the human mind, psychology... etc. I'm open minded and love to think outside the box, I...

    It is interesting to see how people carry on

    conversations. It becomes a daunting task, finding a person that is not afraid to have a conversation about any subject of depth. The type of conversation where you talk about what truely resonates within . Remember life is about learning, growing etc etc.

    Oh my God, the truth in this is unreal.

    I need somebody who is intelligent enough to understand my witty banter and my colourful vocabulary. I'm tired of explaining what pulchritudinous means :P Plus, intelligence and maturity come almost hand-in-hand, so yes, intellectual stimulation sounds fantastic right about now...

    I literally could not sleep with someone

    who I couldn't have a deep conversation with. From opinions on different standards to life philosophy, I love it all. I get physically turned on by mental stimulation.

    I need to have stimulating conversations.

    I need them like I need oxygen to breathe.. I MUST HAVE really good intense conversations. If I do not, and worse comes to worst, I will feel a little empty that day. I'll become distraught and a small part of me dies. 😔😔😔😔😔

    I love learning, but only

    and then stop at nothing to learn every single detail about it? Like I got curious at what year India was "founded" then spent three days writing a research paper on the order of countries founded for literally no reason. I do this type of thing all the time. If I don't have all...

    I think what I mean about being intellectually

    stimulated lies in a recent past relationship with a guy that was willfully ignorant. He eschewed any concept or idea that would make him question his viewpoint. I find this boring. It is okay if after discussion you still keep your viewpoint but to put your hands over your ears...

    I love it when someone comes along

    and talks about things like Astronomy, Religious studies, the law system, E.Ts, physics, and even the reason for life. It's always been a turn on when one is able to outsmart me and when I can just have a conversation with proper English. No slang and such. :P

    the world in which we live, and so usually try to distract myself from all the mishaps of the world by taking an interest in the intellectual parts of life. Music and so on don't do it for me, especially if they're to much about this world; intellectual challenges are my way...

    It's not all about looks,

    but I understand it's important. However, if you can't carry a conversation with someone it doesn't make a difference. One's intellect can be quite attractive. I don't mean book smart. I'm talking common sense, empathy, and well-being.

    I need to be surrounded by more intellectuals

    or at least extremely intriguing people. My mind needs constant stimulation. Talking to most people is more of a chore and just extremely boring and irritating. I come across the most annoyingly predictable and mundane people.

    Turn me on with your intellect,
