Do you know what a sapiosexual is? I had never heard of this term until last week, making me decidedly unhip – in case you’re wondering, it’s defined as one who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature. For example, “I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor.” Interesting, eh? I think I may be partly this way.
I am much more drawn to a person’s mind than I am to most other attributes they may have. Case in point: I had to get rid of an early suitor in life when he sent me a flirtatious love note and misspelled the word boobs (I do not have boubs, just FYI). I had another beau along the way who was VERY attractive (so.damn.attractive.), yet dumb as a stump – our relationship didn’t last, even though he was a very, very sweet person and dumping him felt akin to kicking a puppy. I feel most connected to someone that I can talk to, who can talk about a variety of things, who has interests and knowledge to share….you would not believe how very hard this has been in life. Grr.
These are meant to be funny, of course, but they are absolutely the truth. My soul and mind ARE starving for intelligent conversation – and people who get my humor. That’s another tough one to work out. Why is life so hard???! 😉 The dream is to find someone who speaks to me and thinks I’m beautiful. 🙂
This is what it all boils down to:
That’s so beautiful, don’t you think? I wonder if it exists…and if so, where it is hiding. Come out, come out, wherever you are. 🙂
