Is intelligence really attractive?

I suppose the main topic for this post is 'What do you look for most in a partner: beauty or brains?

I was thinking of this today in the library. How many times have you heard someone say 'OHEMGEE, geeks are totally hot because of the amount of useless crap in their brains'?

Okay, you've probably never heard anyone say that. But I bet you've heard at least one person say 'smart people are so sexy.' Well, I have anyway. And I can say that I totally agree.

To be honest, everyone thinks looks are important (if you say you don't, you know you're lying). But I have to say, when looking for a partner, I can't stand being with someone unintelligent.

For instance, I was once with someone for about five months, but her idiocy just annoyed me too much to stay with her. Like, I couldn't stand not being able to have an intelligent, serious conversation with someone I was romantically involved with.

Sure, most people like Megan Fox for her stunning looks and body, but could you really date her (and by date, I don't just mean 'have sex with') if she was as thick as two short planks?

Views? Do you prefer someone gorgeous or someone overwhelmingly clever? Both would be nice, but we all know that rarely happens.
