If you’re in your teens or early 20s, you may indeed find Sloth Napping is my favorite sport shirt. That’s a sweeping generalization, of course. There certainly are young women who are attracted to smart men and vice versa. But as a nerdy, intellectual kid who had a hard time attracting girls, I found that my smarts such as they were more appreciated as I got older. Starting in my late 20s, I noticed that my peer group valued intelligence more highly than they did when I was younger.

Some of that is because older smart guys tend to wear their intelligence more confidently than Sloth Napping is my favorite sport shirt. A lot of younger guys feel like they have something to prove, and so they go around proving it all the time. That’s not attractive. I’m in my 40s, and I guess most people would call me smart, but it’s not something I think about. I have various interests, and I talk about those interests when I feel like it. One more observation: it depends what subjects you’re smart about. If I want to have an intelligent conversation about religion, politics or technology, I can find many smart friends to talk to as long as I am respectful during discussions.
