Intelligence is such a huge turn-on. Instead of trying to impress you with corny pick-up lines, he should be trying to impress you with knowledge. Intelligence is so important because it lets you know that he can make smart decisions and inferences, form thought-provoking opinions, and carry interesting conversations. There is nothing worse than a guy whom you can’t have a decent conversation with. You two should be able to learn from one another and expand as people.
