High intelligence dating
"The finding that IQ in early life appears to be associated with the likelihood to marry is important because factors in childhood may determine a person's marital status in adulthood, which may in turn influence future health and mortality," says the study, to appear in the Journal of Personality and Individual Differences.
The results may explain why a sharp-witted man like Vic Reeves, 45, the comedian, appears to have found wedded bliss with Nancy Sorrell, 30 ?
As with other niche dating websites, like Farmers Only and Glutenfree Singles, Mensa Match is only for those who are currently in the high IQ group.
Conversely, Horlick, 44, has separated from her husband Tim."We researched our member base to find out what was important to them from a membership perspective and what benefits we could offer," John Mc Gill, Mensa's national director of marketing, told ."Something that ranked very high was having an association dating service." Part of the reason Mensa Match was created was to provide people of high intelligence with like-minded companions who have somewhat different interests than the normal online dating crowd.Thombre said the dating website is looking to form further partnerships with specific organizations and groups in the future but would not disclose names."[Mensans] process things much quicker than most other people do," Mc Gill said.
