Two single women who say they’re ‘too clever’ to find a
boyfriend have been slammed as ‘smug’ and ‘fussy’ by viewers
following a TV interview.

Natasha Hooper, 22, and Angela Gould, 41, appeared on This
Morning together to talk about their dating experiences, and
insisted the men they see are unable to match their
intelligence.

But their claims that talking about their own achievements on
dates intimidated men or scared them off irked viewers
watching the segment at home.

‘I think the only thing these women suffer from is pure
snobbery,’ said one fan of the show.

‘”Ooh I’m too intelligent for love” smirks the most smug woman
ever seen.. wind your neck in love and broaden your horizons,’
fumed another.

One person said: ‘Maybe the women aren’t dating because they
have no personality and are stuck up!’

Another added: ‘No man is intimidated of you. You just think
you’re better than them and that’s why you can’t find a
boyfriend.’

Brunette Natasha, who is an undergraduate student entering her
final year at Goldsmiths, University of London, says she has no
problem attracting male attention – the issue is the calibre of
men she attracts.

She explained to presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip
Schofield: ‘I’m not saying that I am the brightest person ever
or that people should be intimidated by me.

‘As a 22-year-old we live in a society that is really focused
on social media and people are so concerned with how many
Instagram followers they have and how they look and how they’re
presented.

‘I find a lot of the times conversations when dating tend to be
very superficial. 

‘People are more concerned with how many Facebook friends they
have as opposed to having an intellectual discussion,’ she
said. 

Natasha, who says she is taking a break from dating, recalled
one particular date with a 30-year-old office worker who didn’t
know who Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party was –
which left her stunned. 

She also said she went on a date with a different man who
thought women should be domesticated and stay at home. 

Natasha, 22, is one of a growing breed of women who fear ¿ perhaps with good reason ¿ they will be left on the proverbial shelf because of a shortage of educated men

Holly suggested that the women could find a ‘middle ground’ and
try ‘lowering their standards’, but for both of them they’ve
been unable to find the right man.

Angela, a musician and admin worker who says she is ready to
settle down and start a family, said her experiences were quite
different because she avoided online apps and tried to meet men
in social situations instead.

Her problem was the type of men she would meet: ‘I tend to find
in my experience there seems to be two different types of men
that I have met.

‘They tend to geeky and quite into computer games, gaming,
World of Warcraft which is not my kind of thing at all.

‘On the opposite side they tend to be quite laddish and
drinking a lot and I can’t have a sensible conversation with
those guys.
