YOU KNOW YOU ARE A SAPIOSEXUAL WHEN …#SmartIsTheNewSexy

1. Wit turns you on

Some people are attracted to physical beauty and some to money. If you find yourself  inexplicably drawn towards your witty classmate though, you might be a sapiosexual. There’s just something
about a person who is both smart and amusing. Their quips curve your lips into a smile, their unique brand of sarcasm  is insightful and refreshing.

2. Inaccurate grammar is a deal breaker

There’s a guy / girl you really like. You strike up a conversation and flirt a little. You are rewarded for your efforts and he / she shares their number with you. You are so excited to receive their first text message but when it arrives, well let’s just say that its heart-breaking.
Having said that, this in no way means that a potential partner must be good at the English language in particular. All you want is for them to be fluent in their language of choice, to be able to hold a conversation with ease (without grammatical / pronunciation errors).

3. You are attracted to writers

And by writing you certainly don’t mean “Wanna frandship with me” , “Thiz iz da thang” or “Sumthin lyk dis”. You mean people who not just string words together, but whose writing is deep and meaningful. Those who manage to warm the cockles of your heart through their poetry or those who write letters to you. Through their writing, they are able to stir thoughts, feelings and notions. Sometimes you are left with questions, other times some answers. Sometimes they write about plain truths, genius in its simplicity. And sometimes, things are worded in a manner so beautiful, you could never have even imagined it.

4. You enjoy interacting with people who read for fun

If they quote Charles Bukowski, they’re your best friend ! They are inquisitive and you love to discuss books, characters, plots and storylines together. You can argue with them, play devil’s advocate, analyse pros and cons and even have serious conversations at 2 a.m.
They are open-minded and you feel understood with them. They get you.

5. You respect people who know the difference between “YOUR” and “YOU’RE”

Also, the difference between commuting and communicating (Yes ! Some people get confused). You do not expect everyone to have the same level of expertise as an linguistics professor but it is essential for them to be aware of the rudimentary nuances of their choice of spoken / written language (whichever that might be).

X (texts) – “Your adorable.”

Y (replies) – “No. You’re adorable.”

Now X likes Y. All Y did was point out a typo !

HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Love

She saw HIM, across the room as her gaze fell
His eyes – brown or black ;
From this distance she couldn’t tell.
Her sensory receptors seemed to be on attack,
By their dazzling sparkle, oh so bright !
He stood with poise, spoke with conviction.
Her mind grew aflutter at this sight,
And she smiled in silent admiration.

Her first impression of him was indelible.
She prayed with all her heart,
For him to be single and available ;
For an enduring relationship to start.
Little by little, she got to know more
Through friends, shared projects and trips
He was genuine, witty, warm to the core ;
Easily able to tease a smile from her lips.

When they spoke, there was no filter
A sense of ease emanated.
Many a ballad in her mind, did enter
At this providence life had orchestrated.
He was her pipe-dream turned into reality ;
Fantasies ran in her mind helter-skelter.
She fell for him totally, utterly & entirely
Hook, line and sinker !
