Yes, and on a positive side is the "karma" knowledge that so many high-paying jobs once occupied by men have been supplanted with women..eagerly and naively jumped into the same gilded cage with the same shackles, ball and chain.
Different men like different women for different reasons.Some men like unintelligent women but not all of them for the same reason. because they fear a smarter woman would feel she could "do" better for a partner.Why should I be surprised if women have always been encouraged to play dumb?The dumb girl trope is deeply ingrained in American culture and history.This is so counter-intuitive based on a general attitude of "professional" (aka college-degreed, often masters degreed) women, who often are heard grumbling at the lunch tables with other "professional" women about the lack of available men...which upon just a few questions turns into what "available" means = he earns as much or more than my "professional" self does.
Uh..so many jobs women occupy were once occupied by the men they consider "available." And the twisted, tortured logic goes on and on.I'm pretty simple.^^^^The thing is most people think they are smart.When really they are just average or below average. The minute I read in a profile "I'm intelligent" or "I'm classy" right away I assume average intellect and not so sophisticated. I'll figure it out by talking to you if I get past your profile.It could be none, some, or all of the following reasons (not a complete list by any means).1. because they want to be able to relate to their partner.2. because they feel inadequate around smarter people (and who wants their partner to make them feel bad? I think everyone wants a partner that they can relate to.Someone they can talk to without fear of judgment or rejection.you need to step outside, clear your head and remind yourself of who you are. And sometimes you have to venture outside your world in order to find yourself.
