The findings, to be published in the November edition of ‘Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin’, concluded that men find the propect of dating intelligent women intimidating.

“I’ve been a martial artist for nearly a decade but Michelle had never stepped foot inside a dojo,” he said.“I asked two local instructors from the Belvoir Karate Group to provide us with a private karate lesson in Marston.”Asked what made them decide to begin alphabet dating, Marc replied: “To be totally honest I’m not really sure how we came about with the idea…as we have both focused all of our time and effort investing in William’s happiness for three years I guess we discovered that we’d lost focus on maintaining our own relationship and wanted to do something to keep the spark alive.“Being very competitive people (to a fault some might say!) a general chat about organising a date night soon turned into a competition and we’ve found ourselves trying to surprise each other every month.Thanks to the mobile applications of Waplog in IOS and Android platforms, guys can chat with girls and girls can chat with boys in anywhere anytime.
Instant messaging, texting and flirting online has never been so easy before.Broken into two parts, 105 men were first read a hypothetical scenario involving a woman who either outperformed or underperformed them in a Maths or English course and then made to imagine them as a romantic partner.The men ranked a woman who outscored them as a more desirable partner, with the study stating that “men formed favourable impressions and showed greater interest in women who displayed more (versus less) intelligence than themselves.” However, the second part of the study – when men were asked if they would date such a woman in real life – showed that the men got cold feet.Men are attracted to the idea of dating intelligent women - but don't actually like the reality of it.That's according to researchers who carried out several studies into what men find desirable in women.The mistake I’m talking about is the common “identity trap”, where you feel that you have to play a certain role or define yourself a certain way to attract the person you really want to date.
