"...people assume there is something profound about having a relationship based on witty conversation and intellectual discourse. there isn't. it's just another gimmick, and it's no different than wanting to be with someone because they're thin or rich or the former lead singer of Whiskeytown. and it actually might be worse, because an intellectual relationship isn't real at all. Witty banter and cerebral discourse is always completely contrived."
