I just sighed audibly.
It’s true that I’m attracted to smart, lanky, strong-jawed, good-haired guys with light eyes. We all have our preferences. I’m sure many guys would love a lean woman with full lips, a big chest, and bootylicious. One can be attracted to an ideal type, but also recognize that we need to be open-minded and realistic about who we are attracted to AND can attract.
I have dated guys who were 5'6" to 6'5", average weight, lanky, athletic.
I have fallen hard for a Brit who was 5'9", not lanky — average build. He had the most beautiful accent I’ve ever heard and could talk about the V&A and streets of Paris. I’m not sure if he graduated from college. I was utterly enamored with him. And he was with me. But his life is, well, a wreck and he can’t date anyone for the foreseeable future.
I’ve never dated anyone in Mensa and only a couple of Ivy League grads. As for lanky Texans, I’ve dated exactly one.
It’s true that bald guys aren’t my thing, though the few bald guys I have reached out to have, without exception, blown me off. It must be a mutual thing.
My long-winded point: I connect with who I connect with. I have a type (broadly speaking), but I don’t have a checklist requiring an IQ pre-requisite.
None of that changes the fact that I’m a sapiosexual. Which doesn’t define who I find attractive; rather, it’s one factor.
Thank you for reading and adding your definition for active lifestyle.
