Yep. I learned that the hard way when I first started dating seriously. Met a cute girl while starhunting during TIFF, we clicked right away on music/books/history/art, I even helped her to lotion her arms (notice I said arms, not anywhere inaccessible) but I guess she was into Asian guys or something (we clicked on Japanese culture) because she bailed on our next outing to a small concert that she had initially asked me to join her at by claiming she was sick. Dunno if that was true or not but then she started saying that I was harassing her after I tried to bring her some chicken soup from the corner diner to help her feel better (she had given me her address to meet her just before the concert). That day I also learned that romantic movies don't mean shit if she isn't feeling it.

I shut her down quick though, telling her she should have just told me she wasn't into me that way instead of just pussying out and then crying wolf when I acted on inaccurate information. I then gave the soup and bread to a homeless guy and went on with my life.

Next time I saw her, we ended up at the same nightclub on Valentine's day, I made sure that she saw me dancing with the same 2 girls, at the same time, until the club closed at 2am.

TL/DR? LoL I concur.

Intelligence is important to me but not education. There is a big difference between intelligence and education. Many educated people assume they're intelligent and many times they are not.

Once dated a phenomenally attractive waitress - dumb as a fucking post. I mean she had a grade 8 education. Worst lay ever, couldn't talk to her about ANYTHING, completely vacuous.

Give me a passable scientist. If not an option, I'll do the ugly. Ugly chicks will do the filthiest stuff anyway.

Have you ever dated a passable scientist, or ugly one?

Attraction to the physical body, is as important as the attraction to the mind. If either are soft and mushy, then you should move on. I was lucky enough to marry a woman hot enough, who has agreed that I can leave her if she gets fat, and is smarter than I am. She's what I like to call my unicorn.

I think I'd rather date an attractive scientist (specifically an electronics engineer in my case) I know it sounds like a flippant answer but attraction (at least for me) has to be both physical and intellectual; a lack of either one of these attributes will just put me off. obviously, when I say physically attractive; it's my version of attractive, she wouldn't have to be some kind of model etc. for example, I went through a dry spell and decided to try out PoF but gave up on that idea pretty quickly because although there were many great looking women, they were all as boring as fuck - their "about me" sections all said the same shit, they had no hobbies outside of going to clubs or going on holiday and they all said that they were "outgoing" which is always a warning sign for me because if you're "outgoing" and physically attractive, there must be some serious character flaw to leave you trying to use a dating website. another thing they did was; they used their "about me" section to list off a set of demands about what their potential partner must do/have/be but anyway, the women on that site should probably be discussed in a different sub!

the most important thing for me though is that she isn't a narcissist. fortunately you can just check her facebook for that these days - if she has 3000+ pictures of herself then give her a wide berth

Scientist doesn't mean smart, waitress doesn't mean not smart.

Hot waitress! Not only is she more attractive but in theory if she is loyal I will have the power in the relationship because I have a better job than waiting tables. So I get better sex with a more attractive partner AND a better relationship if it comes to that.

This is a no brainer. No guy is gonna choose the ugly scientist.

I kind of look at it as a weighted system for evaluation of how I am attracted to someone. The three categories are intelligence, appearance (face and body), and personality. When I was younger I put more weight in the appearance, now I would say that the intelligence has a greater weight. Back to your original question. If you have the binary condition above, as long as her body isn't grotesque, I would pick the ugly scientist (depending on which science).
