Streetsmarts or booksmarts?

Which is more important to you when selecting a play partner/hook-up/casual lover? Or does this even come into play in a casual situation?

What about in a more serious relationship?

Daisy L, it is the quick witted that I find attractive, and this wonderful attribute is found in both the book and street smart lady.

Now a book smart Lady can talk way over my head especially if the conversation drifts to an area of her special interest. But I am not so self inflated that I would hide the "you lost me on that one" lQQk and ask for a simpler take on what was just said if she doesn't recognize the lost look on my face.

No one knows it all, and the Street Smart Lady can play racketball with the playdough in my brain, as you know, men are easily led around by many of our "appendages", noses, etc.

Daisy it is "All in the Delivery", Smarts can be quite alluring or like a 2 X 4 upside the head, the biggest turnoff, no one enjoys being lectured and talked down to in a derogatory tone!!

Communication is an art, in business and relationships, with the payoff leaving one "Enriched"!!

Can't win the lottery without "PLAYING"!!

if by street smarts we can extrapolate "safe-sex smarts," then that is way more important.

I think street smarts is more important. It tends to translate into experience, which always serves you well. You have to have your eyes open, and recognize the real world doesn't bear any resemblence to books

Hi Daisy,

For me for either, mental and physical chemistry...intelligence and how you is more important than where the smarts came from.

Anyone can stroke body parts, but stroking a mind, that's there the adventures begin.

I have a female friend that is a med student. I get turned on every time she gets technical and does what I call, “doctor speak.”

Booksmarts for me.

A genuine desire to want to be together. Don't want either person thinking "I can't wait for this to be over." Experience is not an issue for me. Quite frankly, I love the idea of trying new things, showing someone how something is done, or having someone show me how something is done. Must be the educator in me coming out.

Love, Light, Laughter, Leave a Legacy,

It does not really make a difference to long as there is that chemistry!

street smarts were good when I was younger and ran the streets,but after awhile they get you NOWHERE! In this world book smarts(& common sense)get you farther in life.
