Mental Attraction Vs. Physical Attraction

Taiwo Ajuwon Pillow Talk Aug 07, 2020

If you are watching the ongoing Big Brother Naija, whether, on Television or twitter, you must have heard these two terms flying around.

One of the female housemates used the terms a few times when describing her relationship with two male housemates. She is mentally attracted to the smart Mr. A with whom she has deep and intellectual conversations, and she is physically attracted to the sexy Mr. B with whom she flirts and jokes.

She enjoys Mr. B’s attention and would want to date him but she’s concerned about what would happen once the physical attraction fizzles out and it may, after sex. She has no romantic interest in Mr. A but enjoys her conversations with him and would like them to stay friends even though he wants more.

Long story short, it appears her ideal man is a Mr. B with Mr. A’s brain.

I think both are important for any long-lasting relationship, so, I won’t be asking which one supersedes the other. It would be hard to date someone I do not find physically attractive, but it would be equally hard to stay in a relationship with someone with whom I can’t have deep and intellectual conversations.

So, I hope I don't ever  have to choose.

But if the die was cast, and a choice must be made, what would be your choice?

Sexy or Smart?
