You are dead right Candie, and I should know, I read a book a week.

Is it fiction? It only counts if it's non-fiction!

Never heard of it till now. But I can see why a*sholes would use it as it makes them sound like their educated.
People do like to blow themselves out.

Also do you want to know what I identify as? Well I won't say because it's Narnia your business.

Absolutely. But I don’t think that has anything to do with the word itself but rather the precious and highly politicised times we live in.
Handier than “Intelligence is attractive”?

“I’m sapiosexual” - probably needs explaining.

“Intelligence is attractive to me.” - doesn’t need explaining.

I think anyone putting it down on a dating profile is likely to put off a lot of the people they want to attract. Lots of interesting and engaging people might find it hard to respond to a suggestion, however slight, that they have to be especially intelligent or capable of lots of high-brow discussion.

Luckily my nicer half has low standards and poor eyesight.

I suspect your other half wanted a person to share their life with not, just be in the same book club with

I think most normal people would look as it as a kink. ( Its not a sexual orientation) And lets face facts it would be as beneficial as putting "bodybuilder" or "me, me, me" down when trying to encourage interest with a dating profile. But there is always someone out there for everyone, so I am sure that it would meet the aspirations of a special type of snowflake

Until the word enters common parlance, I agree.

Don’t see what the fuss is over really, it’s just a word. I don’t use it myself but I have seen people on OKCupid! using it.

I wouldn’t rule them out because of it. Some of us can’t afford to be that picky.
