How to Date Intelligent Women in 2022 and Where to Meet Them

No matter what type of guy you are, learning how to date intelligent women can be surprisingly intimidating. Obviously, that’s not to say that most women lack intelligence, we’re just focussing on those who are above average in today’s article.

In my experience, this increase in intelligence seems to bring a few traits with it that can be intimidating in their own ways. That’s exactly why I’m putting this guide together to help you figure your way through it.

Where to Meet Intelligent Women

Since you’re reading an article about how to date intelligent women, it’s safe to say this is something you value. After all, studies suggest that those with high emotional intelligence tend to have more satisfying relationships . The tricky thing is, intelligence doesn’t define who she is or what she’s interested in.

While I can’t give you a foolproof way to find intelligent women, here are a few that’ll help your chances.

Dating apps and websites

That’s right, dating apps are for literally everyone and intelligence certainly doesn’t exclude them. We have a few favorite dating apps that tend to work the best for men.

Since intelligence is a high priority for you, this is something you should include in your bio as well. Just. . . be tactful about it.

Rather than “I’m looking for an intelligent woman”, think more like “I’m looking for someone I can have real conversations with”.

Coffee shops

While this is somewhere I used to shy away from, coffee shops have become a great place to meet people. These days, they tend to attract a lot of freelancers and students since they have endless caffeine and none of the distractions of home.

What that means for you is a great chance of meeting intelligent women while they’re taking a break from their work/study. If your job allows this as well, all you need to do is pick up your laptop, head to your favorite coffee shop and get started.

If you’re open to meeting new people while you’re there, you’re already giving yourself a great chance of meeting intelligent women.

Just keep in mind that coffee shop dates don’t fare so well if you’re looking to hook up. However, if you’re the type of guy who prefers a romantic meetup, then this is just the place for you.

The library

Sure, this one’s a bit of a stereotype but it’s also accurate. There are two main reasons why people would spend time in a library. Either they’re looking for new books to feed their creative side or they’re there to study.

Either way, this gives you a great opportunity to meet intelligent women, although you might want to keep the conversation short until you’re outside!


Last but not least, don’t forget about university. Particularly once you get to know the campus, you’ll start to understand exactly where to look.

One great thing about university is that, culturally, it’s almost as much about the social aspect as it is about study. People tend to be open to meeting new people and experiencing new things. Obviously, this is great for your dating life.

Keep in mind that studies show that women tend to shy away from relationships when they’re in college and tend to prefer casual relationships.

How to Attract an Intellectual Woman

Now that we’ve covered where to find intelligent women, let’s talk about how we can make ourselves more attractive to them. Of course, all the usual tips still apply. That means being well dressed, well groomed, not over-texting and so on.
