So this economist did a study on speed daters and found that "men avoided women whom they perceived to be smarter than themselves." Maybe I shouldn't have kicked that guy's ass at trivia last week? But kicking ass at trivia is one of my favorite things to do! It satisfies my need for meaningless intellectual validation, as well as my freaky competitive streak! This is terrible, disheartening news.
Though maybe this study is flawed in that it only examines speed daters. Speed daters, as a group, might be a little stupid and easily threatened, right? Oh... they were Columbia students.
Dammit, there's no hope for me.
