@Hiraeth First of all my question is about highly intelligent women in general, I'm not asking about myself and whether I'm intelligent or not is not the topic at hand. I had this debate with a collegue and we both weren't sure on how men view non typical and smarter than average women,in terms of something serious. Second of all, intelligent or not, not everyone goes about in their lives with the latest copy of a book about the science of relationships, so unless someone has a certain knowledge of this..."science", I don't see how or why someone "should know it"? That seems more like a personalised absolute view of yours, to me than something that people "should" know lol. And finally, my question and description were pretty clear, don't see why you go around it so much?
