I got lucky to be with a wickedly smart partner, but what I didn’t realize was I was lucky that she was also very loyal. No person is perfect, the downsides I have observed from her and other women with similar traits is empathy and sympathy is not something that goes with the uber intelligent.

Of course not all intelligent people act like that :-) just observations I have made along my travels in life.

What I believe people need to remember is not one person will hit the check boxes of human attribute perfection. Give and take will always happen.
