5 Best Spots to Meet a Smart Man

Sure looks count, but a meeting of the minds is even better. Here’s our guide to finding a smarty-pants guy of your own.

- Carrie Seim

Smart GuyRomance is infinitely more satisfying when it stimulates body AND mind. But finding a brainy boy toy in a sea of dullards can be more daunting than organic chemistry.

We’ve pinpointed the precise geographic coordinates most favorable to meeting an intelligent male specimen.

In other words, we found the best spots to score your very own smarty-pants.

1. Mensa Testing Day

Why make things hard on yourself? Use a foolproof method for meeting a legitimate brainiac – head on over to a Mensa meeting. Sure, men claim to be geniuses all the time. But this is the only place where they actually have the test scores to prove it.

When only the best and brightest will do, let Mensa be your matchmaker. Sign up for the annual Mensa Testing Day on Saturday, October 17. While you can take the test anytime, this is a great event for mixing with smart-minded men. Even if you don’t officially make it into Mensa, you might just make it with a Mensa man!

And Mensa meetings are definitely a man market. According to Catherine Barney, communications director for American Mensa, membership is roughly 65 percent male and 35 percent female. “It’s very common for people to meet their spouses at a Mensa function,” she says. What smart cookies!

    I lived in San Francisco for quite some time and while I met many smart men they weren’t interested in me because I am a girl. I know it sounds like a stereotype but there is a large number of gay men there and finding a date can be down right depressing. The only time that I’ve been single not of my own choosing was when I lived there. I love the city but good luck finding a smart, straight man there.

  8. Fern says:

    KiaC — you should go outside of San Francisco to the guy meccas of the silicon valley suburbs — you’re so close to tons of smart guys dying for a woman!

    Try BrainiacDating.com it’s a perfect dating website for geeks.

    I like this site and I like top read, and smart guys read.

    I think it’s important that you’re happy and if you can find someone you have something in common with, or are compatible, that will help. I live to read, and am more or less insatiable. I actually met my boyfriend on
    Book Lovers Dating, its online dating
    which is the future you can click on that if you want. There are others I guess, but that

    I’m Joyce, owner of SweetonGeeks.com. Thank you so much for the mention! My mission is to convince women to stop dating cavemen and give the geeks a chance so I love the spirit of this article. We’ve had many happy engagements and marriages. Some more geeky than others but all wonderful. Just had a couple get married yesterday and the officiant was a computer program the groom wrote himself! Geek love is a beautiful thing. :) Thanks again for the mention!
