I remembered reading about a study (haven’t been able to track down the study itself) in the NY Times here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/30/magazine/30feminism.html?pagewanted=1&ei=5070&en=2dfaf9003d429d32&ex=1177128000

Relevant quote:

"A 2005 report by researchers at four British universities indicated that a high I.Q. hampers a woman’s chance to marry, while it is a plus for men. The prospect for marriage increased by 35 percent for guys for each 16-point increase in I.Q.; for women, there is a 40 percent drop for each 16-point rise."

I’m the opposite. Intelligence is very attractive to me. However, I can still understand the choices of people as they are.
