I'm aware that I am a smart person, but more importantly, I just love thinking, exploring ideas, learning, politics, theology, science, philosophy, memes, aesthetic things. I love having really deep discussions about things that exist, existential questions, issues humans face, news and politics, or just interesting facts. I'm not very emotional or empathetic, but I like talking to people about their struggles and trying to get to the bottom of them, logically. I have really only ever met one person, a good male friend, who will talk to me about anything, and who thinks deeply about it. Normally if I tell somebody something I find interesting, they are like 'wow that's crazy!', or if I ask them what they think about some issue, they haven't really thought about it. This is probably irrational, but what if I can't find a girl who loves to think and learn like I do, and what is on my mind a lot of the time won't really interest them? Unfortunately, lots of people these day are 'basic bitches'. They don't put much effort into refining their taste, don't think critically about things, don't seek to become more interesting, are not skeptical and / or open minded. People care too much about following social norms and doing what others expect they should do, and can be absorbed by themselves or what is right in front of them. Of course, I look for other things in a potential partner besides what I've mentioned - I'm looking for someone who is beautiful, has a christian faith, friendly, encouraging, loving towards them selves, and is basically compatible in terms of planned life direction. Tbh i'd rather be with a basic bitch than be forever alone if it comes to that. Are my expectations too high or am I too negative about people? P.S. I hope I don't sound like I think I'm better than other people because of the way I think. I don't think that, or at least I try not to think that. I would hate it if people thought I was a snob. It is quite possible that there are more people (and girls) that think like me than I'm aware of just because i'm the odd one out in my very large family or because I'm too anxious to have proper conversations with the vast majority of people I know. Thanks in advance for any insight. Feel free to criticise me if you think I need it.
