So, you’re a member of Mensa and because you’re a member of Mensa you probably have trouble finding people on your level to talk to. That makes dating hard. Talking to another person, of course, is an important part of the courtship process.
Finding mates with IQ scores in the 98th percentile is so hard these days. But, for Mensa members—with their memorized IQ scores—the dating pool just got a lot more selective. The egghead organization announced it's teaming up with Match.com to create Mensa Match. “American Mensa isn't just about encouraging adults to think,” the promotional copy on the new venture reads, it’s also apparently about encouraging them to make out.
"You're looking for someone in the same tribe as you," American Mensa Marketing Manager Victoria Liguez told ABC News. "You're asking, 'Do you value intelligence as much as I do?'" And do you have the test scores to prove it? Under the new tie-up Mensa members “are also invited to add branded badges to their ‘normal’ Match.com profiles to indicate their interest in superior intellects,” according to ABC News. That should go over well.
