I broke up with the boy because he considered sex an essential element in a relationship, and I vowed to trust myself from then on as the authority on what I was feeling and what experiences I wanted. Not my boyfriend, not the hottest people in school, not the heartthrob movie stars. Could you take it or leave it, and find leaving it more convenient or preferable? Even the best-looking man in the world will be rejected by women once they realize he is weak. If you answered no to one or more of these questions, you may very well be asexual. And finally, smarter-than-average women: But in the majority of relationships, intellect will play a large role. That was in
Or again - more simply - smart men are more successful at their jobs and make more money than unintelligent ones. Someone rightly pointed out that part of what put men off was my desire to correct things they said that were inaccurate or participate in verbal sparring I appreciate a good debate. Do you feel sexual attraction sometimes, but only rarely? However, men my age tell me that intelligence is not a turn-on for them. Or is it a matter of combining my intelligence with enough social leverage to not make it my main feature? Could you take it or leave it, and find leaving it more convenient or preferable? While it is true that unintelligent men might be turned off by their own relative inability, your intelligence will be highly valued by the men you find most attractive - that is, the smartest ones. Women want a man who can hold his own among other men, who is impressive to them, and whom they admire for his strength. When a woman is smarter than a man in a relationship, it isn't necessarily "intimidating" or "threatening," but it does rob him of a large portion of the power he feels that he needs in order to fulfill his role in the relationship - that is, in order to protect and provide for his woman and children.

A man could manifest his strength in many ways: I know from experience, but I was used to defining and defending my feelings and choices through a privileged lens of high self-esteem. Without that core confidence, the criticism I dealt with would have been nearly unbearable… And now, I want to help other asexual people to embrace their orientation without an instilled core of self-doubt. If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset. They aren't afraid of or threatened by smarter women, but their woman's intelligence can prevent them from having the advantage of power that makes them feel masculine and garners their woman's admiration. Do you have a desire to introduce sexual activities into your relationships? As mentioned above, there are different types of power. Some people would call that asexual. You are barely noticed. They say that as long as a woman is "reasonably intelligent" that is what they need I have also discussed the topic at length with my sisters, their friends, and a couple of the girls I've dated. And judging from their absolute disbelief at what I've told them, there is some news to be shared here In fact, a man's attractiveness to women hinges on her perception of his personal strength. The Rules Revisited I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men. It is the most pervasive expression of power because it touches every aspect of a man's life and facilitates all other expressions of power.
