When it comes to matters of the heart, all of these apparent facts of smart, successful seem to go right out the window. Suddenly, these women are so overcome with the possibility of love that they forget to take their own happiness, both future and present, into account. They settle.
Why is it men make the most intelligent women so stupid?
Former Tv presenter Esther Arunga is trending after it emerged she lied to a court about knowing about the circumstances that led to the death of her son to protect her husband.
Why is it that even when you know in your gut it’s wrong, you still go ahead with it?
Many smart, successful, entrepreneur women continue to make horrible romantic choices.
WE CHOOSE EMOTION OVER RATIONAL THOUGHT
We ladies are so great at thinking with the plentiful logical facets of our brains… until, of course, we fall in love.
Suddenly, even the most rational among us become hot emotional messes.
Our judgment becomes clouded. No longer can we see the situation at hand with our usually inquisitive minds, but instead we are like lovesick teenagers, thirsty for affection. We can’t see clearly. We just think with our hearts.
WE’RE ADDICTED TO WHAT FEELS GOOD INSTEAD AND IGNORE ALL CONSEQUENCES
We’re so entranced by the feelings of infatuation that we cannot see in the long-term. We live so in the moment.
We can’t see outside of our new love and ourselves. The world becomes constructed of just the two of us — so beautiful and passionate and so utterly idiotic. It’s so unusual for the intelligent woman to think so narrowly.
That is how we get entrenched in these fickle romances: We don’t see the outcome of our poor decisions until it’s too late, and we’re too forgone to go back.
WE CRAVE OUTSIDE VALIDATION
How can this happen to such smart, wonderful women?
We go from being these mighty, awe-inspiring women to these puddles of self-conscious mush. It’s truly horrifying.
We no longer look at ourselves in the mirror and take that as the nod to perfection but instead need to have that same reflection dancing the in the eyes of a man to contain the same meaning.
THE POWER OF LUST OVERCOMES THE POWER OF INTELLECT.
We forget to get to know a man’s mind because we are so stricken with a helpless desire to be forever intertwined with his body.
WE SUFFER FROM RELATIONSHIP MEMORY LOSS.
We just never learn our lessons.
We continue to make terrible choices and excuses for those choices despite what our obvious histories have clearly shown us.
We pretend the patterns aren’t there. It’s completely bonkers.
